Review

Go Rabbit go has been going for now decades. With its generational shift to mature adults who once X owned 80s Rabbits. Unfortunately, the unibody pick was not crossed over. More about that later.

I live in Roanoke VA driving mostly along interstates or the valleys jurisdictional byways with plenty of ups downs and curves of all sorts. Car handles like a charm even more so on passes crossing dozens of ridge lines located along the Blue Ridge Mountains to the east and the Appalachia Mountains to the west. It's tight and krpt me out of the ditch approaching a downhill car - both balls to the wall - with dry leaves in tow. Fortunately I road the rail on the right edge of a steep unguarded cliff. Adrenalin should be this cars middle name. Love it but got to sale it cuz of growing family and desire for tech audio smart upgrades. Dodge Durango SX. Go figure. Taurague is not my deal as it's much smaller for much more. American German dodge. Go figure.

Review

The fuel economy and quality of the drive train are the biggest downer for me.
It has good pep to its step and handles incredibly well.
Although with my Transmission failing so early I worry about the power train quality.
It looks pretty inside and out, handles very well but doesn't appear to have the longevity dynamic.


Best Features

Shifter lights, heated seats, heated mirrors, handling


Worst Features

better quality transmission/better fuel economy

Review

The exterior of this car is quite nice, following the the line of the Golf. The interior is very well designed and finished much better than other cars in the class. The car is much roomier than it seems, the legroom and headroom in the back is great. The seats are poorly designed without proper lumber support that's why I'm rating it low. The ride is very nice, the suspension is just right. Thanks to the multilink suspension in the back, the car corners like no others. The engine is the biggest flaw of this car, it's not powerful enough but the gas millage is not that great. I wonder why they didn't install a better European engine with similar power but better fuel millage.


Best Features

nice look, very nice suspension and handling. Interior design is top of the class


Worst Features

VW should either install a more powerful or economical engine, the current one is a bad blend. The stereo system is pretty bad as well.
