STOP AND READ BEFORE YOU BUY!

2008 Volkswagen Eos Komfort 2dr Convertible (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6AM)
There are several issues with this car. 1. When the key is removed from the ignition, the front windows drop slightly, thus when it is raining you get poured on. You get soaked inside the car whenever it is raining. 2. The radio antenna is in the trunk. The reception for FM and Satellite radio does not hold. While you drive the radio stations fade in and out. 3. The EOS is horrible in snow. We had to add sand bags to the trunk to allow traction when driving. In addition, when it is below 32 degrees the trunk freezes up. I now have to prepare myself when bad weather is approaching and put my snow scrapper in the back seat. Please read this before you buy your EOS, I wish I knew this stuff.
Re-think the windows opening when the key is out of the ignition. Rain should run off the car not onto the front seats. The water runs onto the seats even when the doors are open quickly and shut quickly. Please re- think this engineering problem.
