2008 Volkswagen Rabbit S 2dr Hatchback (2.5L 5cyl 6A)
Great car, easy to handle, good in snow with Nokian snow tires on it, very good on gas. Bought it with 60 k miles. Now at 122 k with no repairs. Tires, oil, filters i.e. maintenance only. A couple of bulbs changed. That's all.
Used to drive VW Passats, earlier with no major problems.
The single issue is Check engine light which is turning on and off by itself.
If you want a good VW buy one built in Germany.
Handling, gas consumption, power. Yea under 7 sec to 60 miles/hour with 400 miles per tank.
Fun to drive.
Improve road noise please. Bluetooth would be great with a better stereo.
