I am on my 3 VW, I now have 2 07 Rabbits , 6 speed autos with 16 inch alloys. Both cars have performed flawlessly and have served me well. Gas mileage between 25 and 30 if you keep it on the highway. Little cars will get you in trouble with ability to exceed 125 mph 32,000 on one 24,000 on the other. Very safe cars, Germans are the best at this, why I got one for my wife and daughters.
Handling with the 16 inch alloys ,you can nail a offramp. Pretty good stereo for my rock music . I like the sport mode helps you get better shift points when passing, interior very well laid out, very good gauge layout. Drop the back seats for roomy cargo area, seats up plenty of room for passengers.
Give me a tdi version or the Euro 1.4 supercharged and turbocharged marvel that gets 45 mpg . Vw didn't bring it because they thought Americans would not pay extra for it, oops didn't foresee 4.25 a gal did they. Ok VW of America get off your slow moving butts and bring Americans the good stuff now!!!!!
