Excellent Car Exceeding All My Expectations — After almost 100,000 miles I still don't have almost any complaints regarding this car. Engine, brakes and steering are great. I have done all the regular maintenance schedules and repairs at VW dealerships and they were very resonably priced, honest and never tried to upsell anything or charge for unecesarry repairs. Unbelievably, the only things I've had to change during the past 100,000 miles were tires, a couple of light bulbs and the battery. Everything still feels as tight as when I bought it. I suspect I will never have a better and more reliable car after this one.

Practical And Reliable — This car has been fantastic since we purchased it in 2012. We are the second owners and have never needed any maintenance on the car in this time. The car has more get-up than most people think, and is the smoothest clutch i've ever driven. All around a great car and has held its value incredibly well.

Love It. Then I Hate It. Then Love It Again. — It's got enough power for what i need. Door handle doesnt work sometimes. Gauge cluster is lit up like vegas with some german sign language. Oh yeah, thanks for putting the frame in my way volkswagen. My axle is mating with it.

Vw Rabbit Is A Great Transporter — I bought this car thinking I would tolerate a small car to save on gas compared to driving my 3/4 ton truck. Well, I certainly save on gas (although not as good as promised) but I actually love the car. You feel like you are driving a sports car. You can haul a few hockey players and their equipment. The german engineering is precise and responsive. I really think this is the best small car you could own.

The Best Car In Its Class — lots of usable torque, fun to drive. build quality top notch. ridiculous amount of standard features...what else has heated seats and mirrors standard for under 18k? the interior is incredible, i don't know how they can sell this car for what they do

The Lil Rabbit That Could. — The Rabbit is a great car. While not as powerful nor performance driven as the GTI or the R32, it definitely gets the job done and is a fun car to tool around in. The cornering is really impressive, even stock. Second gear is where the power kicks in. I've found that you get slightly better MPG performance with the ASR off - which is their anti-skid protection. I will say that bringing it into the dealership for it's check-ups can be pricey, but, I haven't had any mechanical issues with it at all for the past 2 years.

Great ride and handling

Cons

ummm... nothing really sucks about the rabbit... I would rather have a GTI... but then I would have too many speeding tickets :)

Happy Bunnies — The rabbit has decent power (150hp an 170 ft/lbs) so it can still hit 210km/h. It's handling is extremely nimble for a daily driver, without being rough... In fact, I would call the ride quite pleasant. The torque is sufficient to drive around town without leaving third gear for a right turn. It's fuel economy is quite good as well, not as good as a civic, but the Rabbit is much much much nicer to drive. The interrior noise is quite low and the heated seats add a very high level of comfort. As for how fun it is... because of it's taught suspension and hatchback design, navigating city traffic is a blast! The interrior quality is very high, actually higher than anything I've seen in the price category. The cost of ownership isn't excessive, in fact, I would call it very cheap for a German made car.

I Would Tell Anyone To Buy One. It Has It All. — Performance - Outstanding low end and mid range torque. Plenty of power. Build Quality - It's German. Nuff said Appearance - Stays looking fresh years and years down the road. Nice and classy and conservative. Cost of Ownership - Very affordable and worth every single penny. Fun Factor- :-D

A Brief Description Of Greatness - Vw Rabbit — Very fun. Way better handlling and suspension than my old Corolla (I don't avoid bumps anymore). Good cargo room. The back seat is not what it could be, but that's not exactly the point of this car, now is it?.
