2009 Volkswagen Rabbit S 2dr Hatchback (2.5L 5cyl 5M)


I traded in a 2001 Outback and was afraid the Rabbit would feel so much smaller-- it's not at all. The mpg is better than the Outback, even with 1 more cylinder. I was expecting entry level features and was surprised by the thought that was put into the design. I drive out to the mountains a lot and am pleasantly surprised at how my bunny scampers up a steep grade. I had a Rabbit diesel in the 80s and am so glad I thought to try a Rabbit again. I couldn't be more pleased.

Best Features

This bunny hops! The Rabbit is so much fun to drive. I hadn't driven a stick shift in 11 years, but am having a ball driving this car. Even though it's a small car, it feels big inside. My golden retriever can sleep in the back without laying the back seat down. I LOVE this car.

Worst Features

The blind spot is annoying, but I'm getting used to it. The button to turn the cruise off is oddly placed, but it's not too bad. Having a few more mpg would have been nice, but I wouldn't want to trade power for mpg.
