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


Car has seen all types of driving and has fared extremely well. The engine in the car is well suited to most driving situations and the abundance of power and torque plus an engine that enjoys revving provides an acceleration not found in competitors, the five speed manual has short throws and positive feel with good clutch feedback. Suspension is based on the sportier GTI, giving the Rabbit surefooted dynamics while providing a comfortable ride even over harsh roads, the standard ESP provides an added safety net. No problems while owning the vehicle, and fuel economy has averaged approximately 28 miles per gallon, while full tanks on the freeway can net up to 33 miles per gallon.

Best Features

Engine, transmission, suspension combination. Stereo system with 10 speakers. Standard ESP. Key fob can open or close windows. Sunroof. Blue and red gauge cluster lights. Controls are intuitive and well laid out. One touch window controls.

Worst Features

Add 6th gear for increased highway mileage. Add multifunction display, even as an option. Allow 4-door cars the 5 speed manual gearbox. Center armrests. Larger side mirrors to fix the blind spot created by the C-pillar.
