2008 Volkswagen Rabbit S 2dr Hatchback (2.5L 5cyl 6A)
Review
I upgraded from a 1999.5 MKIV Golf GLS to this 2008 2.5 2dr Rabbit. Awesome car. 16000 trouble free miles over my 1st year of ownership, great get up and go, great ride. Not as much storage space as before and the interior is not as refined as previous models, but still way nicer than the same priced JDM or US cars.
Favorite Features
The 170HP engine, Tiptronic tranny, so-much-fun-to-drive factor. All the bells and whistles that are standard on a base model VW (that are all extra options on JDM + US cars). The great growl when revving the 5 cylinder engine.
Suggested Improvements
Gas mileage could be better (avg about 22mpg in 90% city driving), seat bolsters are uncomfortable for larger sized passengers. Rear seats no longer fold flat. Side mirrors don't fold in as far as in older models. Stock tires are not that good.
