You'll Like The 2007 Volkswagen Rabbit If...

Tangible German lineage and an exceptionally high level of interior fit and finish for this price combine to make the Rabbit the most sophisticated $15,000 vehicle on the road. Compact SUV-like versatility provides practical appeal.

A fun, fast car - great for daily drivers.

Excellent performance and reliability. Comfortable and fun to drive. A fast, zippy car that is fun to maneuver. Holds up surprisingly well in the winter despite being a small car. Gas mileage is fine. Back seats fold all the way down, giving the car plenty of space. Two-door car but does not feel cramped.

VW rabbit: reliable and convenience.

My Volkswagen rabbit is over 10 years old. It has a few dents but is still reliable. It can still go on long drives and requires minimal maintenance. The hatchback feature is very convenient. Although it is a compact car, there is plenty of cargo space once the seats are folded down.

- Anne C

My vehicle has definitely had wear and tear but still operates really good.

There is some rusting on the wheel well but it still runs really good. The seats are comfortable but it is a little small for transporting more than four people but again that is okay. Has heated seats but the steering wheel is wearing away. Performance and gas mileage is great.

Report Receipt Date:
Sep 17, 2007
NHTSA Campaign:
07V442000
Summary:
CERTAIN VEHICLES FAIL TO COMPLY WITH THE REQUIREMENTS OF FEDERAL MOTOR VEHICLE SAFETY STANDARD NO. 108, "LAMPS, REFLECTIVE DEVICES, AND ASSOCIATED EQUIPMENT." SOME VEHICLES MAY NOT HAVE HAD A REQUIRED CAP INSTALLED WHICH DISABLES THE HEADLIGHT HORIZONTAL AIM AND SOME VEHICLES MAY CONTAIN A CAP THAT DISABLES THE VERTICAL AIMING SCREW.

Remedy:
DEALERS WILL INSPECT FOR THE PRESENCE OF A CAP IN THE SOCKET OF THE LOW BEAM HORIZONTAL AIMING SCREW AND INSTALL ONE IF MISSING, AND INSPECT FOR THE PRESENCE OF A CAP IN THE SOCKET OF THE VERTICAL AIMING SCREW AND IF PRESENT, THE CAP WILL BE REMOVED. THE RECALL IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN ON OR ABOUT OCTOBER 31, 2007. OWNERS MAY CONTACT VW AT 1-800-822-8987.
