Best feature of my Volkswagen egos.

I love my Volkswagen eos hardtop convertible for the ease of putting the roof up or down. Two things that I don't like are 1. The engine uses oil and has done so for as long as I have had the car. 2. I do not understand all of the technical terms, but from what my mechanic has told me, the suspension was designed for the mountainous roads in Germany and therefore, the rear tires wear on the inside and there is no way to adjust the camber or to rotate the tires to adjust for this. I know that there is some way to hook up my phone to work through the radio but the instructions are unclear as to how to do this so I will have to seek the help of the nearest dealer. Also the passenger side outside mirror just fell out and now needs to be replaced and I think there may be a fuse blown on the passenger electric seat because it will not go back and forth.

A pleasure. The v6 gives it power and the convertible makes it a fun to drive.

The Volkswagen EOS is an absolute pleasure to drive. With its v6 engine it is got a lot of get up and go. It is easy to handle and it is very stable. You have the option for a sunroof when you do not want to have the top down which is an extremely nice option that no other convertible offers. It is roomy and the backseat is comfortable as long as it is not a very long drive.

Volkswagens are not worth your time.

Overall, I am not a fan of Volkswagens. My car always obtains issues with the engine. I treat it extremely well for being a teenager and it continues to disappoint me. I do not recommend purchasing a Volkswagen especially being in the us where not a lot of car shops have or know enough about the materials used to fix it.
