Rabbit diesel autos were also available for at least 2 years from 81-84,
with the auto trans that had an E(conomy) and P(ower) mode. (or
something like that). Needless to say the Power mode was a misnomer. I
carpooled for several years in one of these, I think it was an '82 or '83. My
parent's '81 diesel 5 speed was also in the same carpool, and it was
dragster in comparison, especially with 5 people in it...
