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

Review

This car is great fun to drive. The build quality is excellent; it has plenty of power and torque, and the manual shifter is butter smooth. I was looking for an economical hatchback that would serve as a city car and also be comfortable on long trips. A hatchback made the most sense, since the most usual passenger is a 100lb. hound. He doesn't mind that the rear windows don't open. Still, with the back seat up, the car has plenty of room for the grandkids. My only complaint is, having found the ideal seat/steering wheel combo, I can't seem to adjust the seatbelt away from my neck.

Favorite Features

Height adjustable driver's seat and telescoping steering wheel (both hard to find in this price range), supportive front seats, powerful 2.5 five-banger, ipod connection hidden in armrest, multi-function trip computer, generous interior room.

Suggested Improvements

Coupe needs a light-color interior option (hey, it's over 100F here 5 months of the year); lower the center console to allow more right knee room between it and the steering column. And as a previous poster noted, the Golf sold in Europe uses storage space more cleverly, as does the Scion xD here.
