2008 Volkswagen Rabbit S 2dr Hatchback (2.5L 5cyl 6A)


After about a year with my Rabbit, I can finally write a review. The Rabbit is a fun little car to drive, with a lot of pep. The 6 speed tiptronic transmission is a lot of fun and very unexpected in such a low price car. The interior and build quality constantly amaze me after having Fords, Pontiacs, Chevys. The 2.5 engine doesn't mind being revved, and sounds pretty good when doing it. Although, it is a fairly thirsty little car, as I average 17 in city driving. It replaced a Crown Vic which was getting 12, so I can't complain that much. Not a bad car in winter either, never got stuck once with a good set of snow tires.

Best Features

6-speed tiptronic transmission, 2.5 liter engine, seat heaters

Worst Features

Fuel Economy, OEM tires, wished the 2 door allowed for a sunroof
