Love the car but lots of issues
By Greg on


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


I bought my 2008 Eos and it has really been an enjoyable car to drive, when it is not at the dealership. So far I have taken it in at least 4 times, 3 of which for the same issues. Small leakage in the drivers window during a heavy rain, auto roll up windows do not always go back up, and breaks squeal despite the dealership telling me they are fine, it is just the way VW made them. The other issue I had recently was the battery needing to be replaced at about 30K miles (this was causing the trunk latch in the car to not pop the trunk completely open).

Best Features

Despite all the issues, I love the drive and feel of the car. I am constantly being told how much people love the look and the color. It also drives very smooth and zips when needed.

Worst Features

definitely change the brake pads so they will not immediately squeal and cause embarrassment and fix the minor bugs that keep us going to the dealership time and time again for the exact issues.
