Transmission Nightmare!

Vehicle

2008 Volkswagen Eos Lux 2dr Convertible (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6AM)

Review

I loved this car when I first purchased it. At about 500 miles, the transmission started to buck and loose power accelerating into traffic. Dealer could not find the problem. The problems started getting worse until it was jerking an shaking when backing or proceeding slowly. After numerous complaints they finally replaced the Mechtronic unit. That fixed it for about another 100 miles. Now it's starting all over again. I've had 3 situations where the car lost transmission power while proceeding into traffic. I wouldn't recommend the automatic to anyone.

Best Features

When this car is running properly it's a delight! Wonderful style and finishes. The retractable hard-top is way-cool.

Worst Features

Dump the DSG
