1978 Volkswagen RabbitReview

First Car Ever Owned — This car was a piece of J-U-N-K! Bought this in High School and it had so many issues (of course I learn about after buying) Essentially, the electronics were shotty, and I blew the engine. Replaced the engine,spending way too much money on it. Should have never even bought this or should have dumped it when then engine blew. Sorry VW lovers, but this one was CRAP!

Pros: Since it's a required field, I have to type something.....J-U-N-K!!!!!

Cons: EVERYTHING.....BEWARE!!!!!!!

One year was enough for me. Had great experience with my 1990 VW Fox that I drove in California til 2001. 224,000 miles of happy ownership. Cars made in Brasil are longer lasting. Read More
