What a disappointment!
By grinchy on


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


This was my dream car, which quickly became a nightmare. The convertible operation would freeze mid transition, I take it in for service and of course they "can not duplicate the problem". The very next day I take pictures proving that it is stuck, then they miraculously they can find the problem and fix it. Now, it leaks. It burns oil- im told this is normal, and i have to add 1qt per 100 miles. Really?! My transmission was not smooth, or shifting properly, as well- this is normal. After 3 visits, they finally duplicate the problem, AFTER they crash it on a road test. My car was in service for 1 month, and the issues still persist.

Best Features

When it operates properly, the convertible top is the only impressive thing about this car.

Worst Features

They need to stop selling this year and model. Period.
