Volkswagen Eos FAQs
Check out real-world situations relating to the Volkswagen Eos here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
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.Show more
Dealer stitch up
I can understand your frustration. I wouldn't buy the extended warranty, that's the dealer trying to stitch you up. To suggest that you would need an extended warranty is tantamount to saying the car will break down again, and suggests the dealer doesn't have much confidence in the product. First and foremost the dealer and VW should be fixing the car, no question. Under American laws your car would most likely be declared a lemon and VW would have to reimburse you for the cost of the car or replace with another one. We don't have those laws, pity, so you have to battle with a company that has shown a reluctance to fix problem cars. The oil leak is one issue that should have been fixed the first time to car went in, there's no excuse for it not to have been fixed. The second problem would appear to be the dreaded DSG gearbox, and there's no reason for that not to be fixed. It all should be at VW's expense.Show more
Can you convert me?
FOR a stylish drive there's the VW Beetle cabriolet and the Mini cabriolet. Both look smart and are fun to drive, and you will be able to get them for about $40,000. Another way to go is to buy a coupe/convertible -- one that has a folding metal roof instead of a soft-top. That way you get the security and refinement of a coupe and the fun of a convertible. The VW Eos is a good one, as is the Holden Astra Twin-Top, but they will set you back about $50,000. For a sportier ride there is the Mazda MX-5 coupe/convertible, which is more fun but is only a two-seater. All those cars will be reliable and all represent good value.Show more
