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.
By far one of the best vehicles I've ever owned.. I bought it as a comuter. Didn't care for a civic which has about 140 horses. The additional 30 you get standard on here really makes a difference and I still get pretty good respectable gas mileage. I plan on keeping this car until the wheels fall off! It looks pretty sporty too..
VW Rabbit - Amazing Ride.
2007 Volkswagen RabbitMikello - Los Angeles, CA04/19/2011
I switched from a Honda Civic to the VW Rabbit and am grateful for that decision daily. I liked the Civic just fine however the Rabbit not only out performs but is far better in both quality and luxury.
- The pick-up is ideal for the stop and go traffic of Los Angeles.
- Beautiful interior lights w/a brilliant orange/blue glow.
- Comfortable seat.
- The car is very solid w/loads of safety features.
- The sports mode on the freeway really gives an extra punch.
- The 10 speaker sound system is a great.
- Lots of extra features from heated seats to the sun roof, to all the seats (save the driver's seat) being able to fold completely down for optimal storage capabilities.
This car has definitely lived up to the standards one has come to associate w/VW.
