"The car is sporty with plenty of power. The top is easy to put down and up. A good convertible for the money compared to more costly convertibles."

"My EOS is everything I wanted in my car. Small ... but not too small. Mechanics are wonderful, has the standard option with turbo so if i need to get up and go quickly there are no problems doing so. I can not say enough how much I absolutely love my car. It is perfect for me, I do not have children so I have no need to put a carseat in my car at all. The backseat doesn't need extra space because I prefer not to have people back there anyway. My husband and I can drop the top and cruise."

Cons: "very expensive for what it is"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 9

"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."

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 1

"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"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"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!"
