My experience so far has been great. The Rabbit is fun to drive in all settings I have encountered. The gas mileage is less than stated but comes in at estimates at about 60 mph. Oh and the 10 speaker stereo is great! Just be ready for high service costs. Even an oil change is about $50.00.
Interior lights, stereo. The attention to detail on the outside. I like the coating that is on the very lowest painted panel, seems very tough and is nearly unnoticeable. Heated seats are great on cold mornings too.
The adjustment knobs on the stereo should pop into the dash instead of sticking out all the time. They make dusting more difficult. And a different tone or sequence to the "lights on" warning sound. I found myself able to ignore the lights unintentionally a couple of times.
