2008 Volkswagen Rabbit S 4dr Hatchback (2.5L 5cyl 6A)
My experience is a lot like Sharon's. My decision was between the Honda Civic and VW Rabbit, and I ultimately decided on the Rabbit as I preferred the look and it seemed more fun to drive. I really should have put more stock into the gas mileage. I mostly do all my driving in the city - pure stop lights and traffic the whole way to work and back. I'm seriously averaging between 10-17 MPG in the city. I can't tell you how stressed out I am about this. Instead of enjoying this gorgeous little car I loathe having to drive anywhere because all I can think about is the gas mileage. I've been told there is a break in period but if I could do it again I'd get something else.
