2007 Volkswagen Eos 2.0T 2dr Convertible (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6M)
This is a car for a person who wants a bit of everything in a car: sporty performance, practicality with 4-seat capacity, acceptable trunk space, comfort, interior and exterior style, and of course, a convertible. If you feel the urge to splurge on any particular feature, then you might want to get dedicated sports car or comfort sedan. But if you want a bit of everything, the Eos works well. I've had my Eos for about 4 months in various weather, and it has held up great and has been fun to drive. So far no reliability problems.
Nice comfortable interior styling, having a sunroof really does enhance a convertible.
Doors are heavy (for safety, I guess) and swing wide, which is not good for small parking garages. The slight rollback on hills reminds you that this is a manual even with the DSG transmission.
