I am extremely satisfied with my 2008 VW Rabbit. It is peppy, pretty good on gas mileage, and doesn't look to bad either. I found that oil changes at the dealer are a little higher than expected (in my area they want $79.99) but I am sure I can find a shop I trust more, that will cost me less. If you are doing research on this car, you will be able to find a lot of independent reports, and you can�t beat the value for the money. One of the best advantages of this car is that it is still made in Germany!
When I was told that they had a VW Rabbit on the lot the picture than ran through my head were the ugly pregnant roller skates that kids drove in high school. However I was very impressed being this was the first VW I'd ever been in. Power everything even heated mirrors which are much needed in Kansas. Within 30 days of my purchase I drove it all the way to San Antonio and back. The only complaints are I wish the seats just had the typical lever for the seat back instead of the slow moving wheel, the A/C couldn't keep up with the Texas heat, and the cargo area is slippery for the dog. The A/C did keep the car comfortable but I'm one of those people that is most comfortable when it's make you shiver cold. It may look little on the outside but it is very big on the inside. An average adult has plenty of room in the back seat and the dog enjoys it when we fold down the seats so he has more room to sprawl out. It would also be nice if the back windshield or one of the side windows rolled down for the back seat passengers or the dog.
I recently purchased a brand new 2008 2 door Rabbit and I could not be more happy. Not only is it great to go from a gas guzzling SUV to a sleek and fuel efficient car but the ride is so much smoother and "tighter." I actually like driving now. There is plenty of room in the back seat, and the front seats move way up so it is easy for my dogs to get in and out. The hatch area provides tons of room for groceries or luggage. I have fit a 50 lb dog, 2 sets of gold clubs, and a weeks worth of luggage plus 2 people in this car, plenty of room!
