  Great little hardtop convertible
A member in Massachusetts, United States

Best Reason to Buy the Volkswagen Eos: Powertrain performance
The 2.0 turbo and the 6 speed manual are a great combination-- it really makes the car fun to drive.

Best Reason Not to Buy the Volkswagen Eos: Audio & nav systems
I found the radio to be a bit of a waste, though it works well. It includes XM radio and a 6 CD in dash player—but I never use CDs in the car, as I can plug my ipod in. The 6 month free trial on the XM radio was nice, but the service isn’t worth $17 a month to me. Every dealer (for every make) wants between $1500 and $2000 for the in-dash sat nav system upgrade, and VW was no exception. I just couldn’t see spending that kind of dough to replace my $129 Garmin. I also wish my car had the audio buttons on the steering wheel-- but that was only included on the Lux, and then I couldn't have my manual transmission.

  Fun In The Sun But Not Perfect
A member in Illinois, United States

Best Reason to Buy the Volkswagen Eos: Handling
18" wheels with low profile tires and sport suspension give the Executive trim level excellent handling.

Best Reason Not to Buy the Volkswagen Eos: Reliability & durability
Beginning 1,000 miles after I took delivery, I had problems with entry access and recognition of key that took 4 times back at the dealer before they were resolved. The problems did get resolved on the 4th time back permanently, and since then the car has been trouble free.

Best Reason to Buy the Volkswagen Eos: Quietness
TOP UP - No wind "over the canvas" noise. Retractable glass sunroof opens both ways. Best features of a sedan - best features of a convertible.

Best Reason to Buy the Volkswagen Eos: Exterior styling
I like the hardtop convertible. Perfect year-round convertible for living in the midwest.

Best Reason Not to Buy the Volkswagen Eos: Rear seat room & comfort
Seat is small and okay for short trips. Adults fit okay when the top is down, access is tight witht the top up.

Other Reasons to Buy the Volkswagen Eos: Fuel economy, Feature availability, Materials & workmanship

Other Reasons Not to Buy the Volkswagen Eos: Cargo capacity, Price or payments
