I love my 2008 VW Eos! I bought the 2.0L turbo, 6 speed manual transmission. The convertible top and the fact that it ALSO has a sun roof that are all fully automatic is the most fun I've ever had in a car. I have not missed the trunk space, even during holiday shopping season. I can still slide plenty of gear (overnight bags, groceries, etc.) into the space under where the top folds down into the trunk.
My Eos is very quick and responsive. I've had no trouble at all with the manual on hills or in rain. I'm getting better than posted average gas mileage and am super comfortable driving the easy clutch. I am not very tall, so a lot of standard shift cars are not comfortable for me. But, the seats are fully adjustable, so my hubby and friends who are much taller than me also love to drive her.

Love this vehicle!! It is so comfortable and just glides on the road. Feel very safe as the vehicle is a bit longer than our other VW, and cars don't tailgate us. The portability of having a hard top convertible is excellent, since the sun roof makes it seem as though we are still in the convertible mode even when it is raining or cold. This is the nicest car we have ever owned!

great little car. 5 years old and drives like a baby
Nothing compares to the feeling of the wind whipping your hair back as you cruise in a well-built convertible. Well, almost nothing—the feeling of getting a great deal on your vehicle purchase is definitely a close second. You can enjoy both of these awesome sensations at the same time by selecting a high-quality convertible that sells for less than $20,000.
