Our Take on the 2008 Volkswagen Eos

Our Take

The Eos is a compact four-seat retractable-hardtop convertible, and as such it occupies a small niche in the car market. It roughly competes on price with the Audi A4, and costs more than the Mini Cooper convertible and Volkswagen's New Beetle Convertible. It's not designed to be a spor... Read Full Report

Editor's note: This review was written in December 2006 about the 2.0T version of the 2007 Volkswagen Eos. Little of substance has changed with this year's model. To see what details are different this year, check out a side-by-side comparison of the two model years. With its retractable hardtop and excellent drivetrains, the new Eos convertible is a welcome addition to the Volkswage... Read full review for the 2008 Volkswagen Eos

Step up from our old Cabrio

by VW Fan from Burbs of Boston on December 15, 2010

Our VW Cabrio was a GREAT car, lasting 150k+ miles and almost no issues over 8 years. Sure wish they made a new version of it...but it was time for a newer car. The EOS is a little bit more of a luxu... Read Full Review

Warranties Explained

Bumper-to-Bumper

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

Powertrain

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

Roadside Assistance

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

Free Scheduled Maintenance

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.
