Good Car, but Traded it in Two Months Later
By A. Kaplan on
Vehicle2007 Volkswagen Rabbit 2dr Hatchback (2.5L 5cyl 6A)
ReviewI fell in love with the Rabbit when I first saw it, and probably bought it too quickly (especially with the great trade-in offer and the deal I got). After about 3,500 miles, I decided the car wasn't for me. I lost about $2,500 on the car but bought a fantastic 2004 Saab 9-3 lightly used for roughly the same price (what Rabbits are retailing for). I just didn't enjoy the ride, everything "makes sense," and on paper the Rabbit is a technical marvel, but it's also not very fun to drive. Also, the gas mileage leaves A LOT to be desired. My new car gets 35 miles to the gallon on the highway and is faster, while the rabbit averaged 27 mpg on a 1,500 mile all-highway trip.
Best FeaturesThe good cup holders, build quality, and price.
Worst FeaturesLook at used cars before you buy, you can get a more fantastic driving experience for the same price. Buying a new car is overrated.
