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


Came from a BMW 545i; and while this is no BMW, it is pretty much fun to drive. Terrific value for what comes standard. Love the Satellite Radio. Driver's seat is more comfortable than the BMW's. Legroom is more generous too up front. Would love a bit more power. Could use larger side mirrors. These create blind spots. Adaptive steering should be optional. I don't care for it. Mileage could be a bit better too. A lot of room in back with back seats folded. My 68" road bike fits in completely when I push the front passenger seat down. I have the car for two weeks and everything works the way it should. My first two fill ups were 24 mpg. The last one was only 22.6. All in all, a steal at $20k.

Best Features

Comfortable driver's seat and legroom. Satellite Radio installed as standard. Agility makes it fun to drive.

Worst Features

Needs to get better mileage. 22.6 mpg stinks for a vehicle this size. Driver's seat memory would be nice. A bit more power would be welcome. Adaptive steering should be optional.
