2008 Volkswagen Rabbit S 2dr Hatchback (2.5L 5cyl 5M)
The VW Rabbit is a fun little car. For the price that you pay and the options you get, it is amazing. The downside I found is that the manual gets fewer MPG then the automatic (must be because they want you to spend the extra $1075 for the auto) but the manual is a lot more fun. The ride is very bumpy but I have come to expect that from smaller cars. Other then that I highly recommend to any one this car. The price is right and the options (for base models) beat out any other car of the same size.
All the standard options available without having to upgrade and spend more then you want.
Offer more packages with the base model, instead of standard packages from the factory. Allow the consumer to customize at the dealership on the fly instead of ordering and then having to wait two to three weeks.
