2009 Volkswagen Rabbit S 2dr Hatchback (2.5L 5cyl 5M)
I have driven 10,000 kms since Sep 2008 and I generally find my Rabbit fun to drive. On 4 separate occasions though I have had the experience of putting my foot on the accelerator and got ZERO response. Fortunately, to date, this has only occurred from idle (ie car was stationary). Having read your review I will take it to the dealership again and ask them to check the Knock Sensor. Thanks
Good handling. Fun to drive. Heated seats.
Ride can be a little rough. Tend to feel every bump. Gas mileage not great.
