Beware of Defective Water pumps
Source: Edmunds

...I bought a 2012 EOS in April of 2011. As of this writing 12/24/11, I only have 3,100 miles on the car and it has had 3 water pumps put in.
Fortunately, the car has not broken down yet, but the water pumps build up pressure after the cars warm up and a screeching noise can be heard from under the hood.
My first was found by accident. With only 400 miles on the car, I had gotten out to run back into the house to retireve something and I heard the noise.
I brought it back to the dealer and was told VW had a batch of defective water pumps and they would put another one in, which...

Great convertible for the money!

..."This the best hardtop convertible for your money! It handles great on the highway , good on gas and so comfortible."...

Great car!

..."Just two weeks ago, I leased a 2012 Eos Komfort and I love the car! It's very upscale, but for a great price...

Run..... from EOS

...My Eos, that I loved, is sitting in Al Johnson Volkswagen repair shop and is going to stay there.
I have 12 sheets of repairs. Volkswagen has tried to be very accommodating, but now lets see when I get to settle.
I traded my 2000 Camaro Convertible with 22,000 miles, I am really upset that I traded my car for that piece of junk!!!! Nancy...

Love the new engine and trans!

..."The 2012 is so much better then the 2008! So glad I upgraded! Love the new transmission and no more jerking as the 2008 had. The new lights are awesome too! Drives so much better..."...

Excellant car and lots of fun

..."This is my second EOS in two years. I loved my first EOS a 2010 model and only traded it for my 2012 model because I wanted a red one.
This car is really fun to drive and I notice a lot of people looking at it.It performs really well and is not bad on gas."...

what fun!

..."A great car -- after three minivans and an SUV, this car rocks!
It is fun to drive, handles well in snow and slush, and gets lots of looks when the top is down.
With the hard top up, it is quiet on the highway; in fact, quieter than the Toyota Highlander that we own.If you want lots of space, buy something else, but if you want lots of fun, go for the Eos."...

...Since the day that I test drove the car, I had to have it.
It is my first Volkswagen experience and, so far, nothing but rave reviews.
I love driving it and heads turn when I put the top down.
It is quite comfortable, great pick-up and great build quality.
I previously owned a 2004 BMW Z4 and, believe it or not, like this car much better. I looked at the Z4 again, but this car offered so much more for 12,000 less!...

Fun convertible to drive!

...Looked at used BMW & Mercedes but Eos was my top pick. Fun car to drive and love updated body style on the 2012. Same engine as 2009 but 2012 seems smoother. Ride is much better than 2009 - not as much road noise & don't feel all the bumps like 2009. Love the push button start and keyless locking/opening of doors. Upgrades in Lux are well worth the extra couple of thousands over the Komfort. Will keep this car forever and love the new color choices - bought rising blue metallic and have had many compliments on color...

A Solid Winner, 2012 VW Eos

...My mixed driving habits net me 28.3 mpg overall. The rear seating is fine for grandkids but I usually do not use these seats. With the top in the trunk, you still have some room to go grocery shopping, not so with the G6. The wind screen behind the front seats is a welcome feature. The car gives just enough road presence that you think you're driving a sport's car.There is a moderate learning curve for all the gadgets facing the driver, so engage your dealer's knowledge at delivery. My VW professionals made me very comfortable. There is a vast array of exterior colors, I picked the Black Oak...
