It's a good first car.

by from Austin on August 31, 2017

It sounds lazy but EVERYTHING is "good", not great. But still, EVERYTHING is good. You feel close to the road and it's peppy in sport mode.

MUCH better than VWs of the past

Bought this car from the original owner for less than $3,000 a few months ago with over 185K miles. After a few simple fixes, I put some HARD miles on this car and have been blown away by how nice it still is as a daily driver. No turbos, waterpumps, insane timing belt/chain repairs, etc. to go wrong here. The simple 2.5L 5 banger does its job well and was praised by it's previous owner for how reliable it is. This was the last generation of Golf/Rabbit that was made in Germany, and it certainly shows. No severe quality issues and crayon-smelling interiors here- this generation seems far superior to previous generation Volkswagens. The ride is excellent and the car maintains the sought-after bank vault feel that German cars often have, minus the badge, even with nearly 200k miles. If you're looking for a budget daily driver and afraid of owning a Volkswagen from tales of maintenance horror stories and expensive parts, maybe think again. You could save some serious money on one of these over something Japanese, and have a much more pleasant driving experience. Top tip though- '05.5-'06 model years tend to have poor timing chains, so maybe avoid these years.

Loving my Rabbit - most efficient and reliable car

by on July 12, 2017

This car is the most efficient, sturdy and reliable car I've ever owned. Besides the technical advantages of Volkswagen, I really like its design and color.

The VW Rabbit is a great car. It's been very reliable over the past 10 years. Only down side, repairs can get pricey especially when going with VW Parts. I've only had a one major repair on the car. Otherwise it's fun to drive, incredibly practical, and despite being 6"5' tall, I fit with room to spare.

I bought it with 54,000 miles on it, at 63,000 miles new O2 sensor, at 64,000 new brakes front and back, at 85,000 mechanical power steering failed, computer failed to communicate, ABS failed, all sensors were no longer working. Was told at the VW dealership to talk to one of their sales reps since the car was going to cost more then its value to fix, the mechanical steering is 1,900 dollars alone. I am still paying on a car loan and the car is at a salvage yard.
