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


We purchased a used 2008 VW Rabbit for my wife to drive. She went from a Jeep to a VW. We also own a 2001.5 VW Passat Wagon which we purchased new. Anyone who purchases a VW should be aware that owning a VW is an experience with potentially expensive upkeep and maintenance. Also, the service at some VW dealers has been horrendous at best. The Rabbit is a well thought out car with many creature comforts not found on other cars. It drives and rides like a German car should, is solidly built and has none of the "tinny" feel of other small cars. The doors feel solid and the 5 cylinder is strong. Just be prepared to pay for maintenance and upkeep.

Best Features

Solid feel, ride, power and well thought out interior. The VW symbols in the headlights are a nice touch.

Worst Features

The factory tires are not my favorite.
