"And I think, since this is the last year they will be manufactured, I will be getting one more. I have absolutely loved this car (twice). It's perfect, convertible with a sun roof, no other car on the road offers both - what more could you ask for. Trunk space is small, but manageable and you can fit a whole lot more in there than you would expect. I have no complaints and really wish they would continue to manufacture it."
Pros: "Quick (tough turbo lag is excessive) and fun in th"
Cons: "rotten in cold climates and leaks leaks leaks"

"Love this car in the summer, hate it in the winter. And don't even think about owning this without a garage. Water is a constant problem and once anything inside gets wet you will perpetually battle with condensation on the windows. This is especially problematic in the winter when the windows tend to ice up worse on the inside than on the outside. (I am not exaggerating). And this car takes for ever to warm up. I'm talking 15-20 minutes (depending on outside air temps) or more at idles before anything resembling warm air starts to emerge from the vents.
Bottom line, if you have a garage, or better still a heated garage, this is a great car. If you don't then you're gonna be unhappy and shivering."
Pros: "Fun, Good Looks, Comfortable on long trips."
Cons: "Needs more chrome like my 2009 EOS"

"This is my second EOS. Owned a 2009 white with Gray Interior.
Traded it for a 2013 because I needed the bluetooth and was afraid they would stop making them. No Problems No roof problems love the drive, love the manual shift option. SO much fun! Heats up fast in the winter.
I live in Michigan, with the front wheel drive I can drive it all winter!. The windscreen serves me as an inside trunk when the top is down. I can fit a whole lot of groceries under this!
Great Gas Milage! Does take premium gas but its a turbo!!
How you not like a little red convertable with light tan seats and a sunroof!"
Cons: "lag in turbo performance, roof maintenance"

"Tested the Komfort model of this vehicle (VW Eos, 2015). The roof is interesting because of the many configurations you can use (from convertible -> fully closed and several in between including the (somewhat hard to pop-up) front air dam, rear air deflector.
Found the cabin very quiet both ways (convertible plus air dams or top fully up and sealed). The engine was quiet and responsive (did notice a change in engine speed fron Neutral to forward gears which stutters the car forward unexpectedly. Turning radius is quite good!
Turbo lags strongly to engage after 1.5 sec @45MPH. This was the no-go item for me."
Cons: "Where to put my golf clubs - Passenger Seat?"

"Bought a silver 2010 with 65K on it. I would have not been surprised if there had been some glitch on a hardtop convertible 4 years old. But, there has been none anywhere on the whole car after 5K! This is such a solid car throughout. The transmission is the smoothest I've ever felt. I'm scratching my head wondering why they are stopping production this year, especially considering that convertibles are coming back. My last fun car was a Boxster; not drivable in the winter. Not the EOS. Very pleasantly surprised how it handles in the snow."
"VW EOS remains the only hardtop convertible with sunroof on the market. These features are unique and make the car a perfect choice for all four seasons. In winter, you benefit from the moonroof effect -- not claustrophobic like the traditional black ragtop. In spring and fall, use the sunroof. And in summer, the convertible effect. Excellent 2.0 turbo engine -- very quick and responsive. Superb DSG dual clutch automatic -- absolutely the best in the business. This VW transmission is far superior to any other in the marketplace. Pricing is a little rich but again the product is one of a kind."
