2008 Volkswagen Rabbit S 2dr Hatchback (2.5L 5cyl 6A)
Review
I have long wanted a VW and finally purchased a slightly used 2008 model this year. I wanted a GTI, but it was out of my price range. I've test driven both and can say that the 5 cylinder Rabbit has enough power for most drivers and pretty much all driving situations. The suspension isn't as sporty (read: body lean) in the corners, but overall very fun to drive. Interior isn't as unique/special as the GTI's but still full of features and very comfortable. Great car with great fuel economy. I get 28mpg with approx 80% highway driving.
Favorite Features
There are a lot: - Red LED ambient lighting at night - 3 Blink turn signal feature - Auto Lock the hatch after closing
Suggested Improvements
Offer the sportier DSG automatic on the Rabbit. It would allow drivers to get the power to the road quicker than the slow to respond 6spd auto. Also, the full MFD display in the dash (like the GTI) would be nice.
