2009 Volkswagen Rabbit S PZEV 4dr Hatchback (2.5L 5cyl 6A)
This bunny is a fun and comfortable ride even at German autobahn speeds (+100mph). The bunny is just as roomy as my '03 Passat and easier to park in Europe's tight parking garages. I had one rough start on a chilly morning (+5F), maybe that Knock sensor acting up, don't know for sure because it cleared itself up in a few seconds. I was soaked getting in once by water pooled on the roof, run-off made it too my arm and leg before I could close the door. Need to be mindful of passenger side rear blind spot.
Make 1.4, 1.6, liter and turbo diesel engines for USA. "Golf" models for Euro drivers get twice the mpg!! Passat 1.8T gets 5-10 mpg more, with same power! Clearer front wipers. Amber rear turn signals. More fun exterior color options.
