New leftover 2009 EOS

2009 Volkswagen Eos Komfort 2dr Convertible (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6M)
Review
We bought this along with a new 2010 Golf tdi. So far we have about 3000 miles on it, and it has preformed well. Most surprising is the relatively good fuel economy. Overall we have posted 29.8mpg with a high of 36mpg, and this is winter and the car has a ways to go before fully broken- in. We picked up the car for $26,600 or $5700 off MSRP. It's still too early to tell how this car will turn out but so far it is good. The only drawback is the weight of 3500 lbs, but all convertibles are heavy, and this is one of the lighter ones. Cornering although acceptable is not as crisp as lighter German cars. This is our first convertible, so we'll have a better idea after our Wisconsin summer.
Favorite Features
The CSC, coupe/sunroof/convertible is really nice. The car is remarkably quiet, very comfortable seating and reasonable rear seating. In addition, it's a nice looking car. The motor and manual transmission excel, love the power and fuel economy. Economy so far is much better than the posted EPA.
Suggested Improvements
A stiffer suspension would be nice, but the weight of 3500 lbs on a front wheel drive car has handling limitations. Would be better if it was a rear wheel drive car.
