2009 Volkswagen Eos Lux 2dr Convertible (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6AM)
I purchased my Black on Black fully loaded EOS in October and gave it much thought, it was totally the right choice. I have read a TON of reviews on the '07-'09 and here are tips for those who have had issues. You need an excellent dealer with VW fans in service, the prep work needed on this car is extensive. I test drove several and only two dealers seemed to have it prepped right. My car has no issues at all. Also you cannot wash this car under 40 degrees or you will mess up the seals, plain and simple. If you do not have a garage I would not buy an EOS. You have to be patient with the car, the window move to get in and out be gentle. '09 DVD Nav is worth it too if you drive a
Trunk is really great, I have fit so much into it. The top of course. The sound system is really good. My EOS has very little road noise at all, with the top up of course. Great on snow and ice. In good weather (over 40) 31 MPG city/hwy heavy traffic, now 25. All the bells and whistles!
It drives very well except for the initial acceleration could be smoother. But once you get used to it you can get it going super fast. Turbo is amazing on expressways. One more storage compartment would be groovy but it keeps me from using my car as storage. LOL
