Model Highlights

Volkswagen's all-new 2007 Rabbit, which replaces the long-lived Golf nameplate, is available as either two- or four-door hatchback, and can be ordered with a five-speed manual transmission or a six-speed Tiptronic automatic. Regardless or the number of doors or the type of transmission, the front-wheel-drive Golf uses a 2.5L inline five-cylinder engine to produce 150 horsepower.

The suspension has been tuned for both a reasonable ride and a relatively sharp response from the 195/65x15-inch all-season radials. While these may sound contradictory, VW has always excelled at this compromise. Sixteen-inch alloy wheels and 205/55 tires are an optional upgrade for those looking for even crisper handling.

Considering the Rabbit is VW's entry-level car, it is Rabbit is full of desirable equipment, four-wheel disc brakes with ABS, dual exhaust, power heated mirrors, power locks and windows, air conditioning, a CD player, cruise control, and front, side, and side curtain air bags. The two body styles are nearly identical in terms of equipment, though the four-door has heated seats standard and a better audio system.

Options include an electronic stability program, a tire pressure monitor, and an iPod adapter. If your Rabbit has four-doors, you can choose to equip it with a power sunroof, satellite radio, and rear side air bags.


Model News

Volkswagen phased out the Golf nameplate in 2006 by introducing the nostalgically named Rabbit late in the model year. This all-new model has a power boost over the Golf, and comes in both two- and four- door hatchback body styles (whereas the Golf was only available as a four-door in its final year). What is most exceptional about the Rabbit, though, is that it has far more standard features than the Golf while being priced lower.

The Rabbit is powered by a 2.5L in-line five-cylinder engine that makes 150 horsepower and 170 lb-ft of torque.


Value Writeup

What separates the 2007 Volkswagen Rabbit from its more expensive competition are its standard features and its lively demeanor. Even though the Rabbit is VW's entry-level car, it is fun to drive and comes with loads of standard safety and comfort features that are optional on many models in the same segment.

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.

Consequence
INAPPROPRIATE, NON-STANDARD LIGHTING COULD REDUCE VISIBILITY OF VEHICLES AND INCREASE THE POTENTIAL FOR A CRASH.

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.
