I just purchased the Rabbit and I love it. It's my first VW and my first german car. Before this I had a Integra GS-R and I get the same if not better gas mileage in my Rabbit. This car has more torque than that car so it gets up and goes right away.
The iPod player. It sounds great I had one that you had to plug in the lighter and find a radio station it sounded like crap. Now it sounds great in the car.
Right now I can't think of any. I really like this car. Good job Volkswagen.
