What a bargain !
By robert peter on


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


I bought the car 5 days ago so I can't yet speak for the reliability and the quality. But so far its a great car to own. I bought the car stripped except for the alloy wheels. But stripped the car has just about all I need. The 8 speaker stereo is great. The car rides very comfortable, it hugs the road, and the 5 speed manual is about the smoothest I've ever driven! There is some road noise mainly from the 16" tires as at a full stop in traffic the engine is very quiet. Also the AC/heat tends to get loud when cranked up but hey, the car cost $15K. My biggest problem is with the 2.5L engine is avoiding a ticket!

Best Features

2.5L engine, responsiveness, smooth ride, cost. MPG is not as bad as many suggested. Drove every day to work this week. More than half tank left. Usually with my old Acura I would need to fill up by now.

Worst Features

Better tires.
