Great Looks And Fun To Drive — Overall, this a well built machine. It has been reliable thus far and can be great for anyone with a family of four or less. Great for city where parking can be difficult. Can maneuver around tight turns and has good visibility.

Terrific — It is a very dependable, economical, sporty, driveable, sexy vehicle that handles a curvy road with no problem. The brakes are fantastic and the rear hatchback space is voluminous, plenty of room! Plus chicks dig it! And the sunroof lets in plenty of air.

Quick Like A Rabbit — Great car overall. Reliable and consistent. Handles the turns very well and has a great acceleration with an I-5 engine. Great for parking in the city. Hatchback allows for better cargo space in order to transport anything you desire!

Rabbits Rule! — Can't beat this car for the money, get a used one for under $10,000 these days. Strong engine, brakes, tight handling all wrapped up into a super functional hatchback. No wonder this design is so popular in Europe! Forget the bad wrap against VW, this generation Rabbit is a well built and reliable car.

This Is Volkswagens Basic Model — this car i thought would be like the golf when i went to drive it. to my suprise it had no where near the power and was almost worthless for fun driving. this would be a good car for someone in the city though

Great Looking And Great To Drive. — Great little two-door. Spacious, practical, good looking. Fun to drive, with good on-demand power and a great 5-speed stick. It's no GTI, but it'll put a bigger smile on your face than anything else in the category, while still managing to be refined and comfortable.

My Little Bonny — Has its own language. German quality, a mixure of power, agility and unique handling. A 5 Cylinder Engine matched with the best transmistion on its class gives you a pleasure of driviing an urban car with race capabilities. Best safety on its class. Rock it Bunny!!!!

I Love It, First Vw In The Us, Sucks That It Isnt Stick But Tiptronic Does The Trick. — Well its the first VW i've ever driven, and im not going to lie its pretty quick. It has a 2.5 straight 5 engine. Its louuuddd! Mornings are probably the best time to drive it because you can hear the engine alot. I would mod it, but then its not really mine, or yet that is.. Build quality is amazing. We havent had anything break leak or even squeek on it. Appearance wise, i guess id like it to be lower but back to the fact that it isnt mine and its a daily for my father. Cost of ownership? Sure it gets about 280 miles to a tank of gas depending on how you drive it, and sure it could be better but you gotta pay to play. the car is absolutely amazing to drive. It does need a few minor upgrades tho. Thicker sway bars and id say thats it fror minor. Anything else would be major, something that either makes the FFFPSHHH sound or something that whines. turbo or supercharger.

Road Noise on highway

Excellent Value — my only complaint is road noise. Otherwise, tremendous value and solid construction. Would recommend. seats 4 adults comfortable; can squeeze in 5 no problem - plus gear. iPod inteface is good, interior quality is very good for price. easy & inexpensive to own.
