Faulty Engine and Transmission
By Tallihessn on


2008 Volkswagen Eos Lux 2dr Convertible (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6AM)


Buyer beware, the EOS is a faulty model. The 2008 EOS has engine and transmission problems, and VW is hush hush about the problems, with internal bulletins that they do not share with the customer until many "tests" and until the consumer brings it in again and again. This car has serious issues, do not get it. I have had five rental cars since June 09. The problems started with evaporating oil and bringing it in for early oil changes. Then, jumping gears. New seals and the mechatronic repairs did not work. Needs a New engine and who knows what else. BEWARE

Worst Features

Interior wears quickly, and convertible is temperamental after two years. A/C is low, not that great.
