2007 Volkswagen Eos 2.0T 2dr Convertible (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6AM)


I purchased my 2007 2.0L EOS in December of 2006 and have been relatively happy up until now.
At 72K miles the cam shaft sheered off and required a replacement of the cylinder head.
The VW service rep also recommended a timing chain and water pump replacement.
$6000 later I have my car back.
The AC unit also "blew up" and I had to replace the entire system (condenser, evaporator, etc...) Another $2000 (not at the dealer this time.
After paying 20% of the original purchase price after only 72K miles, what used to be my favorite car ever has become an albatross.
BTW, if you do buy one,l don't let VW dealers service it after the warranty expires.
My experience with several dealers sucks!

Best Features

Power of the 2.0L, handling, the roof, quiet interior, styling.

Worst Features

Find a more reliable engine (I understand the 3.2L is much better.) Tighten up the window seals and lube the mechanism for the convertible roof.
