Re Knock Sensor issue
By derblederb on
2009 Volkswagen Rabbit S 2dr Hatchback (2.5L 5cyl 5M)
I was looking for a little hatchback. I picked the Rabbit over the Mazda 3 and Imprezza because it was more fun driving, cost less, and is supposed to get a little better mileage. It also got great CR ratings. I've had four people in it a few times and there seems to be enough room. The car reminds me of the civic hatchbacks from the early 90s.
Favorite Features
It is pretty maneuverable and responsive like you expect from a little car, but it is really smooth on the highway.
Suggested Improvements
I just had the same problem a couple other people here reported. Just after turning over 600 miles the car started rev-limiting at 3000rpm. Then a couple miles later the check-engine light came on. The shop says the knock sensor needs to be replaced. Not a good sign for a 1 month old car.
