first all of all this cars all fucked up… I don’t know if this is a junk
lot or what. To start the headrest on the passenger seat isn’t even the
proper one. The exhaust sounds like it has a serious leak. The airbox is
missing a piece off the very front from directing in the cold air.

If the mighty 2.5 liter is not enough and you want the 2.0t, vw has just
the car for you! A vw gti! It’s looks are suspiciously similar to the
rabbit, just a little more aggressive, paired with the turbo engine you
mentioned! Freakin idiot

how the fuck could you diss the 5 cylinder engine? it makes a heck of a
better sound than a four pot engine. if you don’t believe me, get the Audi
TTRS or the RS3. and also, if you’re going to say the seats are too small
to EVERY SINGLE CAR you do, how about you stop making these videos and get
Saabkyle04 or GrandPrixGTP02 to do these in-deapths review eh?

@talldude123 not at all dude 23/33 mpg is great and is expected out of a
2.5l. This is better than mazda 3 2.5l, lancer 2.4l, toyota matrix 2.4 and
alot of others that are around 2.5. Horsepower and performance is in line
with those cars as well if not better. the 5 cylinder sound soooooo much
more beautiful over 4 cylinder

No It is a Rabbit. Totally different engine. I love my 2009, im 6ft and
holy shit I still have room in it . Its quicker than a Golf. Same style but
with the Jetta Engine. Thats like saying the Dodge SRT-4 is a Neon. Hello!

My 2009 Rabbit has 113,500 miles.Original clutch. Only fix was a new
alternator at 112,000. Purchased new and is best car I’ve ever owned.
Normal all-round driving yields 26 mpg average. Thanks for posting!

I have one of these as my own cars and it has been great so far. It’s
always reliable and it is pretty quick even though it’s a 2.5.

i would get one of these however what most of you are missing here is its a skit as in not real. these may have had 3 wheels yet were hard to roll unless you really tried hard to roll it just like any car out there. my dad owned one when he was younger and he said he got it to a 45 degree angle on a turn and it didnt tip where as most modern day cars get to a 35 degree angle then end up on their side.
