Cons

nothin

What A Car Should Be — really fast car which handles very well at corners and very cheap to upgrade for right kinda price. build quality is good compared to other cars around the same price tag like soft touch dash board. i am driving this car for last three years and cost of ownership is $0, since VW offers free service for 3 years.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Killer Rabbit — I've owned the car for about 10 months now. As a daily driver, it is a fun car to drive. Fuel economy is so so, especially for such a small car (because of the 5 cylinder) Build quality of the car is excellent, but like any VW it does rattle a little bit.

Very Nice For The Money — I like the way it handles, the way it looks,inside and out. I've always wanted a hatchback. It is fun to drive and 29.5 mpg is big improvement over my H-2 which now sits in my driveway. The 5-cylinder motor is very peppy.

Vw Is Sweeeeeet. — Does exactly what I need it to do. Its a great starter car, for those who are new to purchasing vehicles. It is a cheaper vehicle...and the interior is outstanding. Everything on the inside of the car fits, nothing seems out of place. Well designed, great materials all around.

Volkswagen Rabbit, Two Doors — Very, very nice little, but powerful car - fun to drive. Solid build, no rattles or squeaks. Quality materials almost everywhere although sits' upholstery could be a little more pleasing to the eye/touch.

Pros

Best car for price in class.

Cons

I do have one small rattle... and the gas mileage could be better

Love The Car! — It has great acceleration and torque for the price point. It has a wonderful interior, though I would like leather seats. Love the interior lighting. This car is a lot of fun to drive, could get a little better gas mileage.

Sporty, quick, fun

Cons

gear box

Vw Rabbit — It rides nice, has decent acceleration, well insulated from outside noise, good speaker system, heated seats and a moon roof. The only thing I have found that I don't like is the gear box. When shifting from reverse to first I sometimes hit 3rd because Reverse is to the left of 1st. Other than that no complaints.

I Love This Ride — This is best performing, safest and satisfying car I have ever owned. The 170 hp is fantastic and I love the torque. That straight 5 rocks, but it's thirsty at the pump. Overall, a great car. VW does it again.
