3.2L is a race car!!

first of all the only thing I wasn't too happy about is that the front seats didn't recline more. Long road trips wasn't as comfortable especially for the passengers trying to sleep. Other than that, well, where do I start? Mine happened to be a 3.2L V6, therefore I was never short on power. Those situations where you suddenly have to pass a vehicle on the highway was no sweat. It's basically a race car that is also a hard-top convertible!!!! I test drove the 2.0T prior to purchasing my 3.2L, and I tell ya. What a difference!! 3.2L is worth every penny more. With all the bells and whistles that this car has I thought there were more electronics than mechanical parts. Rain sensing windshield wipers, auto climate control, adaptive xenon headlights, navigation, auto dimming mirrors, heated seats, and on and on. It even looks like a transformer robot machine with the whole roof mechanism folding/unfolding out of the trunk. Surprised it doesn't drive by it self. I love it!

I bought a used 2007 EOS. Had it for 2 months. Luckily my husband checked oil. Didn't even register on dip stick. Also had it in dealership 2xs for Covertible top issues. Trunk latch problem. Luckily the dealer re-purchsed it from me and sold me another 2007 EOS. This one not much better uses oil although not as bad. In shop over 5 weeks now. The hydrolic top malfunctions. Had it replaced. Wouldn't close properly again. Turns out there is 2 hydrolics and the 2nd one needed replacing too. I am very afraid to own this past the warranty. Too bad because I love driving the car (when it works) It has nice handling, very sporty fun little car. Front seat not very comfortable for me. I am 5' 2" and the seat cuts into my calves. Which is strange because my Toureg and Bettle didn't. I waited 2 years to buy one and am very disappointed in the reliability. I also have a V6 Toureg that has a transmission proble. Before that I had a Beetle. I loved the Beetle & had no problems. The Toureg had a few minor issues until it hit 70,000 miles than things went bad & expensive. No Warranty and VW won't admit problem to Toureg transmission problem. Lots of documentation of this issue on Internet went Toureg and other models.

I have owned a 2008 Eos for over 2 yrs. now. There has only been one issue that VW acknowledges and will be doing a free fix for. The car is comfortable and extremely fun to drive. Has great pep and always gets stares. 2 adults can sit in the back comfortably and the roof has worked flawlessly thus far. I would buy the car again and certainly recommend it.

I just bought an eos this year and I love it!! I have had convertibles for over 30 years and this is the best one ever. The hard top is great and it even has a sunroof for when you want some air but don't want to put the top down. I have a 6 speed and it shifts great and drives really smooth. I would highly recommend the eos to anyone.

We have had the car now for about 3 months and my daughter loved it from the first time she laid eyes on it. It drives very well. It is a safe reliable car and looks very good too. We are very happy with this car and I am very glad I went to Cars.com to look for this car. I would recommend Cars.com to anyone looking for a good used car and I would also say to make sure and do your homework.

I've owned multiple convertibles, but this is my favorite by far. Love the hard top in the winter! Not as noisy as my previous rag tops. This car has been very reliable and has great pick up. Good trunk size for a convertible. Gets great mileage.

Bought my eos in May 2007 and put 15000 mi's on it so far. Fun car to drive! Not a winter car. Handles ok, but top is very noisy in cold weather. Drivers side window is acting up. Window drops when car is unlocked but does not always go back up after entering car. Sometimes stays dropped after locking car. Hope its minor. This is my 5th VW. Love the brand!

Traded a SC430 for the EOS Lux. The EOS is just as much fun as the SC430 with a $30K smaller price tag. The EOS back seat will accomadate two adults where the SC 430 back seat is good only for pets or packages. Do yourself a favor and buy the EOS and put the money you save in the bank.
