The coolest thing about the Volkswagen Eos is the convertible top with a built-in sunroof. Or maybe it's the luxury-level interior design and quality. Or perhaps it's the world-renowned...

VW EOS Convertible is a dream!

2012 Volkswagen Eos Komfort

Amazing car, certainly my favorite so far; and trust me, I've had a lot. I love that it is a hardtop convertible so I don't have to worry about someone; breaking in by cutting the top open. The only thing that I don't like about it do far is that there is a leak where the roof meets the passenger window. i'm sure that this is an easy fix, however I have more important things to take care of first. Everyone I know says that they can't picture me driving anything else now. When i was shopping for a new car, the only thing I was sure I wanted, was for it to be a convertible. I originally was looking at the beetle convertible but as soon as I saw the EOS, that was it! I really do love it kore everyday, especially in the warmer months when I can put the top down. Another bonus feature, is that it is a turbo. Meaning it needs synthetic oil and can go up to 10,000 miles without needing to have an oil change. the downside to the turbo however,is that it takes premium gas only. I haven't noticed much of a difference in the price so I am definitely not complaining. All around great car, unfortunately they stopped making them. I'm so lucky to have found the one I have.

My VW EOS is a great car to own and fun to drive!

2012 Volkswagen Eos Komfort

I have enjoyed owning my VW EOS. It is very comfortable to ride in and very fun to drive. Most of my driving is on short errands around town. Surprisingly, I get good gas mileage in town. I love the stereo system. Good sound and it is satellite ready. I also enjoy the hands-free mode for my phone while driving. I like having the display in the center of the driver's seat so I can check mileage, etc., while driving and do not have to look away from the road. The headlights with fog lights give wonderful road illumination at night.

The convertible hardtop in the eos is unique because it also has a sunroof.

2012 Volkswagen Eos

My eos is a small convertible but surprisingly safe and stable to be so small. It handles really well in inclement weather and yet is a luxury model with leather and many options for convenience. The eos is great on gas mileage but it does require premium gasoline only. However the tank is 12 gallons so it is a good trade off. I love this car and would buy it again and again.
