This is my second VW. Now after I sold my first Golf I missed that car for over 5 years so it was apparent that i would buy another VW when I could. The car rides and handles great but my buddy gets better fuel mileage in his 2002 Toyota 4Runner. My Rabbit has stalled 9 times since ownership after a cold start in the middle of a busy highway, tell me that's safe. VW says that it's not throwing any codes and it seems to be working fine. Oh yeah it also has an automatic transmission, go figure. Yesterday I test drove a Nissan Versa which had more interior space but 28 less horsepower which I didn't even notice and better gas mileage. Just stay away from this car.
Tap turn signal for lane change. Tiptronic transmission.
Crappy fuel milage. The famous Rabbit stall. Stay away from this car.
