"I took her off of the show room floor one month after they came out. She has only had one doctors office and goes for her check ups on time every 6,000 miles. Now that she is all mine as of 9/17/15 she now has to have a new Headliner replaced for about $1,100 plus reason being VW designed the pulley system on the retractable top out of a SHOE STRANG TYPE FABRIC THAT HAS NO SEEM ALOWANCE ON THE BRACEING. I am going to have it replaced in the spring but I also am writing a letter to three top people at VW telling them that I think VW should help pay part of my replacement bill.
ROOF LEAKE IS THE NUMBER ONE PROBLEM PEOPLE SAY THEY HAVE WITH THIS CAR BUT, IF YOU LUBERCATE ALL OF THE SEALS NO LESS THAN TWICE A YEAR AND ASK THE DEALER TO SEAL BEFORE YOU DRIVE OFF THE LOT, WITH "GUMMI PFLEGE SHIFT" SOLD ON AMAZOM OR KRYOX THROUGH MOST DEALERSHIPS YOU SHOULD NOT HAVE ANY LEAKE PROBLEMS.."
"German engineering perfection. The top goes up and down with awesome precision.
And there is a wonderful feature that keeps you from small crashes--thought I hit a wall in a parking garage but not a dent on my car. The sensors are always on guard. When backing up they warn you when someone suddenly is walking behind the car. Very helpful in crowded parking lots. On the freeway it glides along beautifully with ample power to make a quick move if necessary. It turns on a dime.This car is my good friend."
"No car can really be a perfect 10 but this comes close. I special ordered my 2015 flash red Eos Executive and it finally arrived last week. It is gorgeous and kind of rare, which is fine with me. It's so much fun to drive and I like all the options like hardtop sunroof or full convertible. It has all the bells and whistles I want. One downside is that it uses premium gas but it's mostly just a summer car so that's not a huge issue. With the top up the car looks rather plainly styled except that the red is very bright. It surprises me that it doesn't seem to be a very popular car. I'm thinking that the price (for the Executive model) is too much considering an Audi is maybe 5k or so more. But the folding hard top is an engineering marvel and adds major cost to the car. I can't comment on reliability because I haven't owned it long enough. But so far this car is awesome!"
