Looking into a '08 Rabbit


New member
Hey, guys.

An '08 VW Rabbit popped up on local craigslist for $3,000 with 98k miles. It's a black 2 door, with 5 speed manual... I've scheduled a meeting tomorrow, and I was wondering if I could get some advice on what to look for, and what key problem areas are with this car.

Compared to everything else I've seen, $3,000 seems too good to be true, but who knows... it just might be a great deal from someone trying to get rid of a car ASAP.

Anything helps, thanks in advance, guys. Really hoping it turns out pretty clean so I can join the family!! :D

EDIT: Also, is there any definitive way to determine if it's an early or late 2008 model?
