2008 Volkswagen Eos Convertible VR6 2dr Convertible (3.2L 6cyl 6AM)


Review

Own a 2008 VR6 model for almost 5 years now. It did have a couple of annoying leaks that I fixed. Thank goodness for vweosclub.com! No mechanical problems what so ever though. I did replace the battery(s). Note that the V6 model has 2 x 6V batteries in the trunk. To me, it's not a fast car off the line with the excessive torque and being front wheel drive. Beyond that, acceleration is decent, especially in sport mode. Fuel economy is great, as long as you're not in sport mode. However, let me tell you that the DSG transmission in normal drive mode likes to up shift too soon to help fuel economy. You can already be in 6th gear driving at 33 mph!!! On the highway, that is fine with MPG averaging 25-28. For around town, I prefer to either put it in sport mode, or use the paddle shifters. And fuel economy can suffer greatly with average in the high teens. Regardless, it's fun driving all year round. WIth the panoramic sunroof, I can have a warm car any time of the year. Too cold out? Keep the roof closed, and the sun will heat the car. Too hot out? Close the panoramic roof cover, and roll the windows down (or use AC). Temperature between 75-90? Put the top down! Hoping to enjoy for a few more years.

Review

Anyone who reads any reviews about this car would NEVER buy one! We had two, both leaked within hours of my bringing them home. The only good part was that my dealer stood behind their 100% satisfaction guarantee and gave me my money back. It's one of the coolest, quickest cars I've driven. Unfortunately, no one wants to buy a car that leaks, all the time, even when brand new. Pass on this one and wait until they figure it out.


Best Features

sunroof


Worst Features

A car that leaks should not be sold. Germans are better engineers than that!

Review

Fun to drive, lots of standard features because with VR6, a lot of things are standard. using the DSG provides a fantastic driving experience. the in-dash 6 CD player is convenient as is the iPod adapter. remember this is a SPORTY car, not a SPORTS car, as long as you aware of that fact you will not be disappointed.


Best Features

putting top up or down, in dash 6 cd changer, DSG box, retractable side view mirrors, headlights that swivel on the curves


Worst Features

Position memory synchronized with seat change and all mirrors. more room for back seat passengers, more room for trunk, better gas mileage
