Volkswagen Eos 2.0 TSI

The Volkswagen Eos 2.0 TSI is a very capable car and with power throughout the rev range has a more grown up feel compared to the 1.4. Ride quality is good even with the sports suspension package and it remains refined, comfortable and quiet to travel in.

VW make every effort to stress that the Eos is far from a Golf Convertible. The car was designed as a completely new model and although it does share some parts with the Golf, the design has a individuality of its own. It’s more expensive than others in its class but then its design, build and equipment levels do well to justify that. The roof is a particularly sophisticated 5 piece folding hardtop with an integrated sliding glass sunroof to give you an additional option. The VW Eos has been a hit for the company as it fills the gap between more expensive premium convertibles and those from the mass market.

    I bought a new fully loaded (new car so only fully optioned vehicles available, which suited me) VW Eos in 2006 and its been great. The only problem was within a few weeks the gearbox gave trouble ( on a vw!?) which it crunched going up (yes, up!) from 1st to 2nd. At first the dealership tried to fob me off with the usual thoroughly annoying and irritating “no problem found” reply!!!!!
    Being a retired car salesman ( I prefer to be known as a closer as cars sell themselves) I made a fuss (contact MD and all that) finally had it fixed. Ever since it has been great. I hear of other owners having problems, like the roof leaking (with the top up !!) but mines been fine.
    Dislikes – none really. Advice – tyres, mine had Bridgestone Portenza which were so noisy my local garage thought the wheel bearings were shot! When news ones were needed I went for Uniroyals which transform the car, now being much quieter.
    Options on mine inc napa leather seats – steering wheel with controls – that all important rear wind deflector -18 inch wheels (not necessary!!) – and the best of all electric seats .
    The worst thing about the car – rubbish dealership / useless salesmen – in over 6 years no one has contacted me about changing it. The only contact was from VW and all they wanted to know was how good the dealership was (which I told them but that changed nothing) no mention of “how do
    You like your new car?”. Great car – crap dealer and rubbish customer care.

    I have a EOS sport when the roof is down the car shuttles is this a problem with the car or part of the hardtop

  3. Editor says:

    Scuttle shake is common in many convertibles and not usually a sign that anything is wrong with your car. If it is pronounced or wasn’t there before, it is worth getting checked out. Otherwise it is just a characteristic of the car and nothing to worry about.

  4. Christine says:

    I’ve owned an Eos from new for the last five years, LOVE IT. Now considering replacing it with another Eos!! I’ve had no issues whatsoever with the car.

  5. Trish says:

    I am considering buying a 2013 Volkswagon Eos Komfort but am a little worried about the few comments from people regarding the roof breaking and / or leaking. Have you heard of many of these types of problems? Would I be better getting a BMW 1 series 2013 model or a used BMW 3 series model?

    Thanks

  6. Carlos says:

    I have a vw eos and no problems whatsoever apart from the navigation system that needs update (still working but rather slow and maps outdated). Mine still comes with the 1.6 engine which is suitable for a car of this type – silent, responsive at mid revs – but not really fast. The new 2.0 engine is quite a good choice with the DSG. IF you prefer manual the 1.4 TSI Is an excellent alternative. From the alternatives mentioned by Trish only the 3 series is really comparable to the EOS. The 1 series is a soft top – smaller and not as versatile as vw

    Could not be happier -plenty of head & leg room even tho I am 6-5
    Love the lines
