I had an EOS for 18 months. I loved the car when I first got it; it was fast, very pretty, had great features, etc. Unfortunately, there are some things that cannot be overlooked. Every time it rained, the seals leaked. Anything I had sitting in my driver or passenger seat would be soaked. I had the seals redone 3 times in the 18 months I had the car and I never saw any improvement. When it would freeze, the car would become useless. The windows slightly drop when the car is unlocked. When it freezes, they won't drop down and you can't open your car door. Also, there would be frost INSIDE the car. I tried to make it work, but after so long you can't keep paying good money for something that should make life much easier and not more difficult. If you live in a place with year round mild weather and have a garage, I am sure your experience will be better than mine.
EOS - Cool car - but be careful of oil / water leaks
2010 Volkswagen EosDoug - , 05/06/2014
The car was one of the coolest I have ever owned BUT it leaked oil BADLY, and at 50K miles also blew a water pump. Drove it for 3 months and traded on another EOS ('08) which leaked oil too. Changed to a Chrysler 200.
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.
