2008 Volkswagen Rabbit S PZEV 2dr Hatchback (2.5L 5cyl 5M)


I have only had it for 5 days and wish I would have got an automatic. The motor seems lazy between idle and 1200 r.p.m.s , so I stall it quite often on takeoff. I have owned quite a few sticks in my life and never had such a problem. I love everything else about the car though. once I am moving it drives great and has plenty of power. I have owned some beetles over the years, a 63, 65, two 66's,a 68 and a 74. I always told my friends, If you can't drive a vw stick you will never be able to drive a stick period. So, is it the car or me ?

Best Features

Everything but the stick shift.

Worst Features

Quicker revving engine off idle.
