2009 Volkswagen Rabbit S PZEV 4dr Hatchback (2.5L 5cyl 6A)
I had a 2006 Rabbit for a short time (it was totaled in an accident), which influenced my decision to buy my 2009 Rabbit recently. The Rabbit feels like a solid, well-built car. It's a fun car to drive, with its 170 horsepower and the 6-speed Tiptronic transmission. The controls are easy to use, and the layout is logical. The seats are comfortable, and the interior is roomy. I like the overall look of the Rabbit, inside and out. I like the features, too. The stereo sounds great and is easy to use. Standard Electronic Stability Program is a nice touch. The engine is smooth and seems quieter than my 2006 Rabbit. Fuel economy could be better. iPod operation is buggy and not intuitive.
Fuel economy could be better. iPod operation doesn't always work too well and could use improvement - it would be nice if it showed song artists & names with the iPod and also let you navigate the music on your iPod the way the iPod does.
