DEFECTIVE TRANSMISSION
By BOCA LEN on

Vehicle

2009 Volkswagen Eos Komfort 2dr Convertible (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6AM)

Review

Overall my EOS is a reasonably priced convertible with generally good quality. I bought the car new. I drive to work and never abuse the car - just basic transportation However, at 1400 miles the transmission blew and had to be replaced with what I now know is a refurbished unit. Last week at 10,000 miles the refurbished transmission blew again. The dealer wants to replace with a refurbished unit again. VW extended the warranty, the dealer has been pleasant to work with and provides a loaner car. The point is, this transmission is too complex. I thing that anyone considering buying a VW with this transmission needs to be aware of the problems that are inherent with this unit. Beware!

Worst Features

VW needs to find a decent transmission to put into these cars. Simply covering them under warranty does not ameliorate the hassle and inconvenience of continually replacing the transmissions which self-destruct every 10,000 miles. (at least for me)
