2008 Volkswagen Eos Komfort 2dr Convertible (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6AM)
My '08 Eos has had almost no problems in the first month. No leaks, no big wind noise, no build problems. Great power and the DSG is awesome. Of course, this car is about the top - real showoff moves. It's also practical because of this top, even in the midwest. If you're looking for fun with enough room for some friends or a golf bag in the back seat, the Eos is the best choice out there.
The top, the turbo, and all the fun!
The only real quirk is the glass rolls down slightly when you're ready to open the door. When wet, that means the seats get some drippings. Not sure how to fix it, but its more an annoyance than a problem.
