What a disappointment!
By grinchy on
2008 Volkswagen Eos Turbo 2dr Convertible (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6AM)
This was my dream car, which quickly became a nightmare. The convertible operation would freeze mid transition, I take it in for service and of course they "can not duplicate the problem". The very next day I take pictures proving that it is stuck, then they miraculously they can find the problem and fix it. Now, it leaks. It burns oil- im told this is normal, and i have to add 1qt per 100 miles. Really?! My transmission was not smooth, or shifting properly, as well- this is normal. After 3 visits, they finally duplicate the problem, AFTER they crash it on a road test. My car was in service for 1 month, and the issues still persist.
When it operates properly, the convertible top is the only impressive thing about this car.
They need to stop selling this year and model. Period.
