I've always driven old Volvos, but last year after spending a month in Munich I became a fan of German engineering. I have not been disappointed in my new Rabbit. I am in LOVE. It hugs the road and scoots around like a high performance sports car! Everyone that drives it adores it. It fits like a glove when driving. It's a real drivers' car. It great in the snowy Vermont winters (get Nokian tires).
It is quick and tight in the corners. It handles like a charm.
The lumbar support lacking on the two door model and this has actually caused low back pain for me.
