"Forgot how good these cars are"

performance, looks, handling,overall feel.
little minor noises that are easily fixed, hard to
....Impressed with the build of the car. Its solid and heavy metal compared to, say my Rav4. And the ride feel is good and not too bumpy. I like the seats too. I just acquired it to resell, but impressed with it. Havnt owned a VW in many, many years and actually the only car i ever bought brand new was a VW Fox in 1989 and loved it, almost flawless and put 300k on it.Ive heard thru the years about reliability issues with VW in general and strayed from them although im a diehard VW, Audi,Porsche buff. They always made good manuals, but ive heard reports of their automatics problematic. What i can say is since out sourcing they have had issues plus VW like other European cars have to be maintained almost exquisitely so-to-speak and do better if so by qualified mechanics. These cars have to have particular fluids, maintenance and regularly and will reflect it. Between Walmart and mass production, competition and the cut throat industry people do expect reliability across the board especially if the Asians make an almost perfect car for the same amount or less money. Its all about how it makes you feel though and VW, Audi and porsche like the other German cars make you feel like you are integrated into the car. All other cars, just dont have that human touch and its an awesome feeling and ive driven every make and model and know. Im in love with VW again all over. Great car in its own many ways.Read less

"bought used, needed repairs, love the car now!"

acceleration, handling, stability, mileage,
It's an old car and required attention. Great now
The 07 Rabbit needed front axles and cv joints, tires, condenser fans, cabin filter, 5 plugs and coil packs. Had the windows tinted. Now, it has been a great little car with that German authority and sound and presence on the road from a heavier frame and low center of gravity. The five cylinder 2.5L engine over powers the car to impressive acceleration and yet it gets 30 mpg on the highway and 23 - 27 in town depending on whether the AC is drawn on and the driving aggressive. The electric driver's seat, heated front seats, 6 disc cd player and other nice features lift it above the "economy compact" category in my estimation. I've had the new tires rotated and re-balanced once with an alignment and it is now remarkably true and clean on the road. I love to drive this car!Read less

"133,000 Miles On It and Still Going Strong"

Nimble. Reliable. Comfortable.
I drove our 2008 VW Rabbit for a few years and then turned it over to our daughter, who drove it all through high school and college. She bought a different vehicle after college graduation and Im back to driving this Rabbit. Its nimble, reliable and comfortable. We took it on long road trips in its early days and we were able to pack a lot into it and still have a comfortable ride. All around great car and we really feel weve gotten our moneys worth out of this hatchback.

"Lots of front end suspension issues"

Quality feel, fun to drive, lots of space
parts and maintenance are difficult
I have had lots and lots of front end issues with this car, as well as alternator issues. Struts, steering column, and cv joints all within 6 months. I only have 83000 miles on it, so super low milage, but have had my fair share of issues. I really like how it drives, has nice standard options, you can feel quality and intention in the design, but I am frustrated with the mechanical issues.

"Worst quality"

Cheap
Bad overall quality
I understand the vehicle is 10 years old, but everything is breaking down. The electrical components radio, locks, tire sensors are breaking down and are expensive to fix. I would not buy any VW product again. The interior is peeling off and the overall quality is poor. VW seems to try to build everything on the cheap. Have a 15 year old Subaru that is still looking like new with the same maintenance and has 160000 miles on it.
