2007 Volkswagen Rabbit 2dr Hatchback (2.5L 5cyl 5M)

Review

Almost to 15k miles, awesome handling, awesome braking, decent acceleration (its a heavy car). The clutch and shifter feel great. Overall my experience with this car has been good, but a few build quality issues have arisen. The sheet metal seems to ding easily, I tend to park carefully but have received a disproportionate number of dings in the past year. Rattle started coming from the center HVAC stack at about 8k miles, dealer fixed. The plug for the spare tire compartment came loose and I had standing water , but luckily no rust, dealer replaced. Rear windshield sprayer is cheap, popped off once, dealer replaced. Routine service is EXPENSIVE (syn oil), and difficult to do yourself.

Favorite Features

Styling, high quality interior, boat load of standard features, handling, overall reliability.

Suggested Improvements

Improve fit and finish, better gas mileage (25 MPG in mixed driving, 5-spd Man), lots of high end features but some basic oversights (no arm rest, manual head lights, what gives?)
