I have a 06' Rabbit. Within the first couple of months the brakes make an AWFUL grinding noise as if the whole braking system would just fall off. The dealership said it's because the brakes were semi-metallic and they do that when it's wet outside. Which made it even more unsettling.
Also had sporadic problems in the beginning with a grinding sound when turning the wheel that did not happen often. It started happening everytime I turned the wheel. The dealership had to replace the wheel bearings and mounts. When I asked what would cause that (making sure it wasn't something I was doing) I was told that sometimes cars just come with defect parts. The kicker to this was when I got the car back my windshield wipers stopped working. I didn't find this out till 2 days later. I'm not completely car illiterate so I went to check the fuses and found out that neither the fuse box under the hood or in the car has a diagram on the cover for fuse locations. So I did look in the car manual but the general diagram in it does not match the fuse box under the hood. So I had to take more time out of my day to go back to the dealership. The resolution for this was there was a loose fuse.
My car has stalled out once while waiting at a red light. When I started to go the whole car just kicked forward and shut off like when your driving a stick and don't ease off right. I DRIVE AN AUTOMATIC!!! Even then I thought it was something I did but I tested every possible theory including it being in neutral and me switching it over to manual. I have not mentioned this problem to the dealer yet.
I think I hear a new noise...
This car makes me regret trying anything new! I should have stuck with Honda. I would have to eat a lot of back end to get ride of this car now. I don't recommend anyone buying one. I don't care if this is just a 1 in a million fluke car. It has to many issues to make me feel secure. I've had the car less than 1 year.
