Well, I had my 2008 Rabbit for nearly 4 years, and 93,000 absolutely trouble free miles, but I traded my Rabbit and my Dodge pickup in towards a 2012 Dodge Journey. My total payment per month dropped over $100, with financing and insurance, so it was almost a no brainer. I needed something I could tow my boat with - I would have considered a VW, but the Tiguan was a bit small, and the Touraeg too expensive.
Never required a single repair. I changed the air-filter, the spark plugs, and the oil, and of course had to replace the tires. She still had the original brakes. Never even changed a BULB in the car. The durability and drivability of the Rabbit was very impressive. No complaints at all about the car - she was one of the best cars I ever owned, and very impressively equipped for the money - tremendous value for the money. The only hitch with the car... I hit a tire carcass that fell off a semi-truck on the interstate last fall - did $1500 in damages - but even then I just drove her home, and continued to drive her until I took the car into a body shop for repair. The Rabbit was a car that did not leave you on the side of the road, much like my 84 Rabbit GTI which never once broke down in 190,000 miles of ownership.
Thanks for the advice and info over the years.
was your rabbit an auto?
He'll be back once the boat sells and the dodge blows up.
