Overall Score
This was my wife's car but a 2.5 years years ago I bought her an Acura MDX Elite and my son has now taken over the Rabbit. May 2021 and the car now has 247,000 km on it. Within the last 6 months I have replaced the oil pan gasket as there was a slight oil leak that was dropping oil on my driveway. I did this job myself using a $29 gasket from Rock Auto that came with its own tube for silicone sealant. The repair was successful and now no oil leaks any more. The car in general really does not use any oil between changes that I do every 10K. In the last couple of months though as the mileage hit 245K the gearbox started misbehaving and I had a new valve body put in it. The valve bodies on the 09G gearbox that these cars are fitted with typically start to go at around this mileage and ours was no exception. The new valve body has fixed the previous issues. About a week after the valve body was replace the alternator failed so ordered a remanufactured Bosch Alternator from Rock Auto. Installed it myself which was a bit of a game and I replaced all the pulleys and belts at the same time. Just fitted a new set of tires and the car should be good for another 100K although its really at a stage where the suspension components could do with being replaced . . . so may be ordering kits from FCP Euro in the not too distant future. The car still drives really well - super smooth and quiet. Really we did not go wrong when we bought this 11 year ago now. The car swill be 15 years old in July (doesn't look it). We also benefitted from the 12 year original corrosion warranty and both front fenders and the trunk were replaced under this warranty. It looks great for a 15 year old car. The engine in these cars is rock solid provide the oil is changed every 10K.

Manufacturer Recall Number:
45F2 / 45F5
Units Affected:
12,205
Notification Type:
Safety Mfr
On certain vehicles, a fault within the antilock brake system (ABS) may cause the module to fail during ABS and/or electronic stability control (ESC) activation. This will cause warning lights for ABS, brake and the ESC systems to illuminate. If this happens, the brake system related vehicle stabilizing functions (ABS/ESC) may not be available, increasing the risk of a loss of vehicle control and could lead to a crash causing injury and/or property damage. Correction: Dealers will update the ABS control module with improved diagnostic capability to detect insufficient PCU ground connection. ABS modules with insufficient ground connections will be replaced.

Manufacturer Recall Number:
69M9 / 69N1
Units Affected:
64,660
Notification Type:
Safety Mfr
On certain vehicles, the driver frontal airbag inflator could produce excessive internal pressure during airbag deployment. Increased pressure may cause the inflator to rupture, which could allow fragments to be propelled toward vehicle occupants, increasing the risk of injury. This could also damage the airbag module, which could prevent proper deployment. Failure of the airbag to fully deploy during a crash (where deployment is warranted) could increase the risk of personal injury to the seat occupant. Correction: Dealers will replace the front driver airbag inflator. Note: This campaign only affects the Audi A5 and Audi S5 Cabriolet models.

On certain Golf, Golf wagon, Jetta and Rabbit equipped with a 2.5L Engine, a small plastic tab located on the windshield washer fluid reservoir may chafe against an underhood fuel supply line.

In addition, as a preventive measure, the plastic tab from the windshield washer fluid reservoir will be removed.
