I test drove a Fit, a Civic, Corolla, Matrix, Mazda3 and a Versa. The Rabbit was by far the most impressive of the bunch. I never though I'd own another VW but the Rabbit was far and away the better driving car so one is now in my driveway. Its gas mileage is better than I had expected and it handles really well. It is a great little snow car too!
It has tons of power. The interior is a step above the competition.
VW needs to ship more to US dealers so we get a better selection of colors in stock.
