2009 Volkswagen Rabbit S 2dr Hatchback (2.5L 5cyl 5M)
I just got my 2009 Rabbit 3 weeks ago and I mostly love it. It has a cozy feel, the dash is easy to use, the lights are distinct and easy to read, and it handles nicely, even in snow (which we've had about every day since I got it). It has a jaunty overall feel and I am quite pleased overall. The sales staff was also really informed and helpful.
Heated seats are divine, a/c in glove box will likely be a favorite in summer. I find the space ample and the seats comfortable. I like the defrosting rear view mirrors.
My knock sensor went out yesterday, 3 weeks after purchase. At 3k rpm I could push accelerator to the floor and get ZERO response. They are replacing it, but it worries me. Is this a problem for others and will it be resolved quickly? Wish it had better mileage.
