I couldn't ask for a better first car.

2008 Volkswagen Rabbit S 2dr Hatchback (2.5L 5cyl 5M)


My Rabbit is my first car and it's a fantastic car. My brother drove it for a year and then handed it down to me for a Jeep. It's really everything I wanted in a car. A good design, amazing handling and performance and very good gas mileage(just what I need for a job that's 22 miles away from my house). I haven't had any major problems yet. The only problem I had was my emergency brake wasn't disengaging all the way and it wore my back brakes really fast.

Best Features

I love the 5-speed feel of when you shift and you get that nice little jolt back. My brother's old BMW was a 5-speed and never had that kick of when you shift.

Worst Features

The car is relatively quiet because it has 2-3 mufflers. There should be a 6th gear too because highway driving at 3500 rpm drastically reduces the gas mileage for 35 mpg to about 20-25 mpg.
