Down but not out

2008 Volkswagen Rabbit S 4dr Hatchback (2.5L 5cyl 6A)


Found hard time and downgraded from driving Mercedes E/SLK/S to Nissans. Never happy with them. Tinny and whiny. What do I do? Eureka! Found salvation in this bunny that captures the essence of German road feel big time; cost less than Mazda 3 sport comparable equipped where I live. Yes, the engine is a bit noisy, and road noise is somewhat high, but what the heck. This is supposed to be an economy car. I never thought about VW because of the bad rep re: reliability. Regardless whether it will hold up for a few years, I am VERY happy.

Best Features

Engine, 6-speed Triptonic transmission, ROAD FEEL

Worst Features

More sound deadening materials. I do not mind paying a little more for it. That is it.
