My daughter loved the look of the Eos VW so we looked at 2, one yesterday and 1 today interestingly both times when we opened the doors water came pouring out. One car was 2007 and one was 2008. We asked at both dealerships if they were aware of any issue in terms of the hard top convertible and both seperate dealers denied knowing anything. We could clearly see from the ... Read More
I had the same problem with car leaking in both, the driver and passenger side, but after 16 visits to the dealer, a letter to the VP of VW of America and a complain with the bbb, they finally took my problem serious and fixed it in the 17th visit. VW Has a leakeage solution for all EOS now. 2007 & 2008 EOS are the ones with the most issues, not ... Read More
I bought the 2008 Lux Eos. I enjoyed driving my car for about three years until I started having rook leaking issues. At that time I started to deal with the dealer on a consistent basis and have never have such poor service with a car company before. I brought in my car a total of 4 times and i still had issues with leaking after that. I couldnt believe a ... Read More
I just purchased my 2008 Eos 6 mos ago. I have to be honest, from reading the list of repairs done, at least half of them were unnecessary according to my knowledge of Eos so far. Beyond the top not working, which I've heard a 100 x on this forum, and the battery being replaced, the deal was just taking advantage of previous owner. All of the other things are typical ...

OK, sounds like this was the first time the car was exposed to the elements (rain) and water got in, so... keep it garaged or under a cover and get it to the VW dealer ASAP for a good going over of the seals. VW makes a special lubricant to keep the seals functioning properly and you MUST get it from the dealer and apply it to all seals at roof, ... Read More
I agree with the other very detailed reply. Just want to add the possibility of water damage causing electrical malfunction or rust. I too had a 2008 Eos, the water damage was so bad with mildew problem, eventually VW also took it back and gave me a 2009 Eos as well. However, I was away for 72 hrs, and NJ had 7" rain, so I came home with my trunk wet, ... Read More
Are you buying it from a VW dealer? If so, have the dealer pre-certify it and pay the difference for the extended warranty. If you are not getting it at a VW dealer, call your local VW dealer and ask them what options they can provide and check to make sure the car is absolutely out of warranty. Give them the VIN number and ask them to look it up. They ... Read More
Skip the Corp red tape. Go directly to BBB (success with VW & T-mobile disputes). Document every repair including how many days you are without your car. I live in NJ, read TX BBB rules on claim, may be different. Your time limit may be an issue. My 2008 Turbo Eos was purchased end of March 2008, by June, leak caused oder even after repair & carpet replacement. By filing my ... Read More
I have a 2008 EOS thats has been at the shop at Momentum Jersey Village in Texas about 12-15 times in the last year and they have never been able to completelly and efectivly repair problems with my vehicle. I am about to start a case with the BBB and I will also send a letter to the CEO of VW of America Mr. Joshua Browning and would like to gather ... Read More
Good afternoon. I owe a 2008 EOS and have had all kinds of problems, from transmission hasitation, roof leaking, window motors replaced, oil consuption, breaks squeeking and now headliner or something wrattling at the very back on the drivers side andnone of the Techs at Momentum VW in Jersey Villaje had figure out where the problem is. My car has been in the shop over 12 times in the past year ... Read More
I am convinced now that there's something to the adage, don't buy the first couple of years of a new model ANYTHING. I've seen a lot of complaints on here re: 2007 Eos, I've also seen some ppl saying that they have no problems with theirs. It's risky. I have a 2008 and I have some of the minor quirky problems that people are talking about but thank God nothing major ... Read More
Hi Matthew, I have my 2008 eos for 3 months now and have not had that tumping problem yet,hopefully never. But I do have water buildup in door wells, my sunroof only opens 3/4 of the way, is that normal? My brakes squeal on startup in the a.m. or any time the car has been idle for a few hours. Mechanic said the car is cold and will not do it ... Read More
My 2008 Eos with less than 30,000 miles started having serious transmission problems in February. During city driving, without warning the DSG would downshift into first gear and the instrument panel PRNDL would flash. The only solution was to stop, turn off the engine and restart. I took it to VW of Boise, who graciously gave me a 2011 Jetta loaner. After the service staff replaced the speed sensor in the ... Read More
I agree..use your warrenty. I just turned in my leased 2008 EOS. thank goodness. That little beast is gone. For the past two summers the car was in the shop for initially a moldy smell. The first time all my carpets were replaced and was told the leak was fixed. Last summer I began smelling mold again and in the shop it went for 2-3 weeks more and this time seals ... Read More
After test driving a few Eos' I decided that it was the car for me. One of the cars I located locally here in the Charlotte area was one I wanted to make an offer on. Problem was that it leaked and dripped on me during the test drive so I nixed it. I ended up taking a trip from NC to FL and got a great deal on a 2008 ... Read More
I also live in North Jersey, but decided NOT to deal with East Coast VW (in Englewood Cliffs) because they are so bad. Is that who you are referring to? Anyway, I searched inventories of every dealership from Boston to Maryland, eventually picked my 2008 up from Atlantic City. Returned to VW in Nov. 2009 for a new Eos due to leak and supported by Lemon Law. So, look up BBB ... Read More
I am about to go to arbitration with VW for water in the trunk. The hydraulic in the trunk failed so badly that the top is stuck down and I am being told that the part is not covered under warranty ( I have a 2008 with 16,811 miles). I live in Northern New Jersey the dealer is worse than Satan himself - holding my car hostage stating they are the ... Read More
Please let me know how this turns out for you I own a 2008 Eos and right now my car is at the dealership with the same exact issue. If I have to keep returning the car I might as well go right ahead a contact VW HQ to get this straighten out.
I have a 2008 Eos... Love it, but... the 20,000 mile service, I mentioned to the dealer that there is a minor leak at the junction of the top to passenger side windshield... Long story short, they have had the car on and off over 2 months. Now the car has multiple leaks all over. VW gave me their official statement of "Your car will not leak if it rains on ... Read More
I have a 2008 Eos... Love it, but... @ the 20,000 mile service, I mentioned to the dealer that there is a minor leak at the junction of the top to passenger side windshield... Long story short, they have had the car on and off over 2 months. Now the car has multiple leaks all over. VW gave me their official statement of "Your car will not leak if it rains ... Read More
I am with you on that. I have a 2007 vw eos and had nothing but issues out of it. My biggest gripe is with the oil consumption. My Eos is using about 2-4 litres between changes as well. Of course, I have asked the dealership if they had mentioned that this is within normal limits before I bought it, I would have passed. I will never waist my money on ... Read More
I have been experiencing excessive oil consumption on my 2008,2.0 Eos for over 40,000km's. I have now finished the "monitoring" stage at VW. Basically they tested my oil at 1,000km intervals (3 times), tested the oil hot, cold etc and analyzed the components of the oil. The dealership agrees it is using way too much oil. I need to top up between 2-4litres of oil between oil changes! These km's are ... Read More
I have had my 2008 EOS Komfort for almost 2 years and have had continuous issues with my hardtop. It seems to work until it is supposed to disengage from the front windshield and then it freezes. It does go back down, but only works about 60% of the time. I have had it in the shop several times and even though they witnessed it they were able to get it ... Read More
I love my '08 Eos (2.0T base model)! Bought it from Capitol VW in San Jose 09/27/2008 and I now have 15,000 miles on it. It's my daily driver. Only one problem: optical defect in both front side windows. VW of Boise, where I live, got VW rep to look at it and he agreed they needed to be replaced. It was done quickly, without any problems. No other issues with ... Read More
I had this similar problem with my 2008 Eos, a full cup of water would fall out of the car door when first open after rain or after I washed my car by hand. If you stand too close, you'd drench your shoes! I think my dealer put in weep holes (drilled through the rubber seals) and the problem went away. Don't believe them when they pretend it is a one ... Read More
Starting to have similar problems with my 2008. This started with an "accident in the trunk". Transporting toilet bowl cleaner (and groceries) home, and some of the tbc spilled. I cleaned it up as best I could the next day, but the leftover vapors corroded every hinge, cable, lever, etc inside the trunk (where all the conv-top mechanism lives). One day a few weeks later, the top went half way down ... Read More
Well as nervous as I was when I purchased my 2008 EOS 18 months ago, I never had any leaks from above, meaning the roof area. My leaks came from under the car somewhere. I had been smelling a moldy odor for a few months that got progressively worse until the end of July 09 so I brought my EOS in for an evaluation. My car was in the shop for ... Read More
Here you go, Rahul. Volkswagen Credit's current buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2009 Eos Komfort with 12,000 miles per year .00160 and 58%, respectively. At this point, I doubt if you would even be able to find a "new" 2008 Eos on dealers lots. Even if you were able to find one, you would not be able to lease it through ... Read More
Hi Car Man Pls let me know the lease deal for 2009 and 2008 EOS Komfort for a 36 mth, 12000 miles per year. Thanks, Rahul
Yes, this is an issue. My EOS 2008 LUX has had top issues and transmission issues. The lurch when you take your foot off the brake while in drive is a design defect. Mine has been repaired by putting new transmission in after discovering leak at 10,000 miles. VW paid all of it. You should not be liable for a penny on the top. Covered by warranty. INSIST. My top issue ... Read More
I had my 2008 1 week- was parked on a slant at work and the same thing happened! Got stuck half up with oil squirting out the top. Had to have it flat-bedded to the dealership. I called up flipping out and they finally agreed to fix it-(back seat is stained from the oil) and give me a rental car for the week it took to fix it. Had no problems ... Read More
Ours is a 2008, had it almost 2 years, no roof operational issues yet (knock on wood). In reading the manual, the only rule we try to follow is opening and closing it on level (or close to it) ground.
Just joined edmunds today to research oil consumption issue. Have a 2008 EOS (2.0 litre Turbo) and cannot go between standard maintenance intervals without running low of oil. Have started VW's 'oil consumption monitoring plan' which sounds like bull to me however want to follow the rules so when I ask for a new one they can't say I didn't oblige them. I have 2 issues, (1) I'm concerned about engine ... Read More
I have exactly the same problem with VW Eos 2008 2.0T. It happens even on the not-so-steep hills and it's like a nightmare to drive in San Francisco. I read the owner's manual and it suggests using the hand brake which is like going back to the manual shift car made decades ago and I don't even know how to drive a stick. Even though this car has DSG, I feel ... Read More
Was your window problem ever completely fixed? I've been having the problem for the last year [since i bought my 2008 EOS last Feb] The car has been in the shop 6 times, mostly for the window problem but also for a leak in the trunk etc etc. The dealership just say's unable to duplicate problem. This week they changed out the door handles & when i picked up the car ... Read More
I have never liked a soft-top convertible. I have been a hardtop convertible fan back in í98 or so when I was young as I saw a TV commercial, it has become my dream car. Seeing the EOS the movement of hardtop down, I feel it brings me into the future, I feel itís like a time machine,Öand I feel the car is gonna fly, which is my dream too. I ... Read More
Persistence pays. Sold my 2000 Chevy Cavalier Z24 convertible on 9/24 after only 6 days on Craigslist. I had already been checking AutoTrader and Cars.com for all new 2007 and 2008 Eos but couldn't find exactly what I wanted within reasonable distance: Paprika Red base turbo. On 9/25 I started checking the VW dealers' sites through VW.com and found the perfect car at a dealer in San Jose, CA (700 miles ... Read More
I'm looking at making an offer on a new red 2008 Eos Turbo 6M with heated seats and i-Pod adapter as the only two options. The build date is 07/2007 and CARFAX confirms this VW dealer has had it since 09/2007. Seems to me the dealer should be REALLY wanting to get rid of this car (it's a small town in rural Idaho and winter is coming on soon). What do ... Read More
I've been considering leasing a 2008 EOS but all this leaky talk has me worried. When I mention it to the dealers, they usually tell me the usual - that they haven't heard of anyone having any leak issues or having to lube the seals. One dealer told me the reason the roof was leaking was because when the EOS's were shipped over, they put "shimmy's" in/on/around the roof to keep ... Read More
I just bought a 2008 Eos for 412$ a month on a 3 year lease. I have had it 12 days and it started leaking today when I took it out in a rain storm. I am sooo... disappointed. I bought the car in Orlando close to Sanford, Florida. It had about 60 miles on it. I wonder if someone else brought it back to the VW dealership before. How did ... Read More

If youíre interested in speaking to the reporter, please contact Chintan Talati at firstname.lastname@example.org with your daytime contact information no later than June 23, 2008.
Car Man: There is a dealer in MA that has the EOS for $249/mo. with $2K down. http://vw.quirkcars.com/specials/index.htm?category=2008%20EOS%20Lease I asked my local and regions to match it and they say it's a scam, because it cuts below cost. What do you think? Thanks, Mark
09 changes have already been leaked. No v6 model for 09. Just the turbo. Aux in is tanard. Some new and exciting changes though. RNS-510 with the new MDI unit. MDI does replace the CD Changer. MDI is a universal media playing device. Plays music through aux-in, USB, and iPod with the iPod specific cable for it. USB can do both thumb drives and non iPod players that are approved.

2008 EOS 6-speed manual: Anyone driven one? I test drove both the auto and manual '08 EOS recently. The auto seemed fine with smooth shifting. Of course, there's the turbo lag at first but once that turbo kicks in, you're hauling a**. I didn't care for the Tiptronic though. As a manual driver all my life, I could never understand the concept of a shifter without a clutch. Pushing the gear ... Read More
I am interested in a 2008 Komfort and would like to get the upgraded sound system. When I price the car on edmunds, the Dynaudio system is listed as an available option for a Komfort. The dealer I went to also told me that I can get a Dynaudio system on a Komfort. However, neither the brochure for the Eos nor the VW website shows the Dynaudio system as being an ... Read More
Hi lamusic. VW Credit's current buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2008 Volkswagen Eos 2.0T with 12,000 miles per year are .00151 and 60%, respectively. The money factor for a lease with only 10,000 miles per year would be the same, but the residual value would be 1% higher. Car_man Host Prices Paid: Buying & Leasing Experiences Forum
I recently purchased a 2008 Eos with an IPOD dock. I brought a friend's IPOD with me to the dealership and tested in the car and it worked fine. When I got home with my car, my IPOD does not work in the IPOD dock. I read the owners manual and I reset my IPOD as suggested, but it still does not work. When I hit the CD button in the ...

Car_man - What is the residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2008 VW 2.0T Komfort with 10k miles a year? 12k? THANKS!
CarMan - I notced above that you posted the December Money Factor for the 2008 EOS at .00236. That is good news for me, but I have a question. I went into Santa Monica VW today hoping to lease a 2008 VM EOS. I have a friends & family certificate, which specifies that they will sell me the car at dealer invoice and with the most attractive lease terms. I was ... Read More
Hi skinnydog. This car's lease program varies by term and mileage allowance. For now I will assume that you are interested in a 36 month lease with 15,000 miles per year. Let me know if you want something different.

Purchased 2008 Eos Lux Paprika Red Cornsilk. Paid exactly invoice as listed here on Edmunds and other sites. List $35,729 paid $33,327. They did stick me with the $400 advertising fee....But they also drove to Austin to pick the car up and bring it back to the Dallas area for me...So I consider that a wash. I used the Edmunds email blast option, and every dealer came back with invoice, one ... Read More
ALG lists this car as the 2008 residual value winner on its web site for the sports car category. I would expect that to translate into high residual values for leasing. Does anyone know if this bars out in reality? Also, does anyone know the current money factor on VW lease deals for the EOS?
EOS ......What I am frustrated with is that I want to pick a FANTASTIC convertible to purchase...and the EOS seems to be amazing . . . . convertible AND sunroof AND dual comfort zones & navigation ! Wow ! But.....I am worried now after reading everything...and what I wonder is ......how many Eos owners are having A HAPPY TIME ? Because of what you said about TOASTERS ...there could be 99.8% ...

Hello, I'm new to this forum....considering buying an EOS . . . but maybe not after reading about these leaks.....I was curious though about what you said ....what exactly is it that happens "again and again and again" on forums? Please let me know. I would LIKE to buy a convertible...and the nicest one out there seems to be the EOS....yet I do NOT LIKE VW ! I have owned a ... Read More
I was pricing an Eos at the CarsDirect website, and in the Audio Options section I saw this: Dynaudio Premium Sound System (DISC) NO LONGER AVAILABLE for factory ordering as of November 4, 2007 Does anyone know if another premium sound package will be offered? I've driven an Eos with the standard sound and wasn't really impressed (bit of a bass freak).
Hmmm... without knowing the total number of Eos owners participating here, how can one calculate a "percentage"? VW issued a TSB on the problem (see VWvortex) which proves the problem exists. I know I could be suffering from Internet Research Paranoia (IRA)but that's the cross I bear.
I'll be needing to replace my 2002 Cabrio soon. I'm never in a hurry to have a car payment! When I test drove the Eos recently, the dealer was willing to negotiate and actually sell the car at a decent price, I just wasn't ready. No financing deals however. (VW has financing deals on almost everything but the Eos.) When do the 2008 Eos' become available? As far as future reliability, ... Read More
