Volkswagen Eos Q&As
Check out real-world situations relating to the Volkswagen Eos here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
Volkswagen Eos 2009: What's a reasonable price?
The market value of your car, Clare, if you were to sell it privately is probably between $10,000 and $12,000, so $7000 as a trade-in is roughly what you’d expect. It might be a fraction low, but without seeing the car in the flesh, that’s difficult to say for sure. In any case, it’s in the ball-park. That’s how dealers make money on used-cars; they buy them at their price and sell them at yours.
Assuming you’re trading the car in on a new vehicle, the important thing is not how much the dealer offers for your trade-in, but rather the change-over number. That is, the amount you have to pay to get into the new car. A dealer can often flatter you into thinking you’re getting a good deal by discounting the price of the new car, but if they also slice a few dollars off the value of your trade-in, you’re back to square one, right?
Do airbags last the lifetime of a car?
You've done the right thing by contacting VW as they're the people who can help you. You're right, airbags should last the life of the car so to have to replace one is unusual. Ask the dealer to explain what is wrong with the airbag and why is needs to be replaced. If there is no satisfactory response from the dealer then press VW for some help towards the cost of replacing it.
Replacing Eos roof
That's a great result and entirely down to Mr White, the managing director of Volkswagen Australia. He deserves your, and our, thanks. Jane from Volkswagen called me back yesterday, 20/8/15 & advised me that Mr. John White approved the cost of the Roof Repairs.
VW EOS service and DPF problems
Instead of phoning VW's head office and talking to someone who couldn't possibly know what was wrong with your car having never seen it you would have saved a lot of time if you'd gone straight to the mechanic. Instead of trying to self-diagnose a problem as you did in assuming the warning light was indicating a problem with the particulate filter it's always best to go to someone qualified to be able to diagnose a problem and fix it.
