wonder if they can make the roof reliable in the next car?
never met an owner with a good story about an eos
Someone I know had to have her radio replaced about 8 months after she bought it..
My friend’s Eos stopped working after a while, lucky it was under warranty! Electrics in German cars unreliable but we still keep buying these due to their drive dynamics.
VW is not representative of all German products. Also nearly every car from every country runs GERMAN BOSCH electronics.
Agree with the above comments. My in-laws had a Eos first-gen and the roof folding was very unreliable. It went to the VW dealer on multiple occasions to get it sorted, but when they would take it there the roof would fold up or down on the first try. This isn’t a VW-hater comment (I’m a fan of the Golf personally) but just someone’s experience that I know.
It’s probably these problems which are prompting the thoughts in VW about dropping it. They probably just can’t get it right. Sort of like their gear boxes and a few other issues that keep coming up
If you want VW or Audi get an manual or go somewhere else.
My comment had nothing to do with the gearbox, but the folding roof.
The gearbox is an easy fix…hello ZF?
Pity the unsuspecting consumer did not realise the roof was a problem.
Not what you would expect from a large car co like VW or is it?
Just looked on VWWATERCOOLED forum , one person logged a problem with roof , minor adjustment to hinges , looks like baggers just spreading myths again .
what you don’t understand, is, it’s VW themselves. According to them, it’s been unsuccessful. That’s why they are dropping it in favour of the canvas roof. They had to many problems, allegedly.
Yes in the US it never really happened , sold more beetle convertibles , and they are getting the ragtop too , maybe cost priced it out of favour , i wonder if the frenchies are still selling many of theirs .
Yet many stories of problems with DSG and 1.4TSi problems on VWWATERCOOLER forum too. I suppose they are all “myths” as well?
SLOBERING JUDGE is there any vehicle you like , just another whining complainer .
VW have sold nearly 700 Golf cabrios this year?! Wow. I just checked and in past years, the most they ever sold was 289 in 1997.
What a p.o.s
Funny. I’ve owned 3 different VW’s and never had a single problem other than a squeaky door seal… which was my own fault.
Continue to buy VW. Good, realiable, quality cars.
Were any of them an Eos?
Why are Volkswagen so unreliable?
What’s the main root cause of the problem?
Why are toyota’s so boring .
I have a VW EOS hardtop convertible. I luv my EOS!! The vehicle handles wonderfully. Top works great. Only problem is I have a bit of leaking where the roof….connects . I believe the oil should do the trick. Any comments on where I can purchase the oil in B.C. Canada or state of Washington – other than a dealership?
