I LOVE THIS CAR!!
My other half and I had been looking to purchase a new car for about a year and we had done a lot of test driving. We checked out the Hyundai Sonata fully loaded, the Scion tC fully loaded, the Chevy HHR fully loaded, Toyota Corolla fully loaded, Honda Accord fully loaded, Ford Fusion fully loaded, I can't even remember all the cars we test drove (I still have all the brochures for each of them). There was one thing I noticed with all these cars... I always had something BIG that I felt I would have to settle for or get used to in them. Like the tC I would have to settle for the fact I felt claustrophobic (i'm 6'2" and have broad shoulders), the HHR I would have to settle for the limited visibility and the lack of performance... and so on..
When we first test drove the 2006 Rabbit, I did not feel I had to settle for anything. Nothing felt gimmicky nothing was out of place. Everything in it belongs in it without feeling like you're lacking anything.
I heard some people complaining about the 2.5L engine...and let's just say... I personally own a convertible GT mustang 5.0 Litre...with a LOT of horsepower... and I found the Rabbit to be a far superior driving car. Even though there is less horsepower this car takes off without effort. You can be doing 80-90 mph and not feel like it. (I should know, when we went to the Coast the weekend after we bought it I thought iw as doing 40 and was actually doing 90). So don't let those people tell you "oh it's so slow, it has no performance" because we did our homework on this one.
We ended up purchasing a 2007 4 door rabbit, shadow blue, anthracite interior with the upgraded automatic transmission, Electronic stability programming and the power sunroof. I LOVE THIS CAR!
Definitely put this on your list. It's young and sporty with a maturity you can only find in German engineering. (And the Aux input is in the glovebox upper right corner..lil white box with a hole, not the Air Conditioning hole in the back...silly people)
