Summary:

Best small hatchback on the market, extremely fun to drive

Faults:

Nothing so far.

General Comments:

Best value for the money in the small hatchback class.

Small on the outside, but very comfortable interior. I'm over 6' tall, but find it very roomy inside.

Excellent ergonomics and fit and finish.

Fun, fun to drive - same daily commute is totally different with this little Rabbit.

Great on the highway thanks to the 6 speed auto and low rpms on the engine.

Summary:

A good little car for the price

Faults:

No problems yet.

General Comments:

Gas mileage clocks in around 32-34mpg if I keep my foot out of it.

Great highway commuter car. I've put almost 10k miles on it in six months.

Small on the outside, but roomy on the inside. Four average sized adults can fit without too much discomfort. I fit an entire apartment (minus bed and couch) in the back without too much force.

Windshield wipers rest below the surface of the windshield, so if ice builds up on them while you're driving, you're sunk until you can get out and pull it off.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
