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


If you want a cool looking fun to drive cheap to run runabout then this is it!! I actually traded down from a 2009 GTI with DSG to my VW Rabbit with the standard automatic and I actually prefer the drive of the Rabbit than I did to the GTI. Power delivery is obviously less but not a huge difference as it has 170bhp which has plenty up and go for me. The car is very versatile, comfortable on long journey's, love the 60/40 split rear seats to give HUGE cargo space for such a little car, 4 door's makes it a good family car with kids and cheap enough to buy out right so I have no car payments :-) I love it!!! You cannot go wrong with this well built European styling little rocket.

Best Features

Blue dash lighting, interior look and feel, 5 cylinder engine sounds awesome!!

Worst Features

Audio controls on the steering wheel, a trip computer and better fuel economy but am I asking for too much as I already get approx 300 miles to a tank of gas
