The Perfect Convertible by Allen on 04/12/2013. Trim: 2013 Volkswagen Eos Komfort, Owned 1 year.
Pros: I have owned a 2009 EOS now for a year. Overall, it has been excellent. I'm 6'2" and I do not feel cramped at all in this vehicle, even on a 2000-mile+ road trip. Performance is outstanding with the 2.0 turbo. My wife and I wanted a convertible, and this vehicle fit our needs perfectly. Our combined city-highway mileage is 28, highway mileage on that 2000 mile trip was 35. It has a baffle to eliminate the buffeting noise with the top down, or the sun-roof open. We love the rear seat baffle also, which stops the wind from hitting driver and passenger from the rear with the top down, plus it hides things from view in the backseat while shopping.
Cons: There is a flat-spot in the acceleration from a dead-stop. It feels sluggish until you reach about 20 mph, or the turbo kicks in. The reports I read about the EOS before I purchased it noted fuel-injection problems, and that did happen. We had one injector solenoid fail and replaced it. About 2 months later another injector solenoid failed. This time the dealer replaced the remaining 3 at no charge. Since then, no problems at all. There is some increased noise with the hardtop up on rough roads at low speeds, but we knew that up front. Hardtop convertibles have several pivot points that can cause some noise as they flex. My major dislike - my wife is always driving it, not me
Overall review: I gave this car rating of 9's and 10's. I am very surprised I don't see more of them on the road. Perhaps that has to do with the convertible more than anything else. I narrowed my search down to the EOS and the Toyota Solara Convertible. The EOS won hands down on every point of comparison.

An amazing convertible! by Bob on 05/14/2013. Trim: 2013 Volkswagen Eos Executive, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: I have a 2013 Executive model with 3800 miles on it. It is a beautiful car with excellent performance and great seats. It gets excellent gas mileage, and I love driving it.
Cons: The lack of trunk space with the top down - I knew about this issue when I bought it, and it is a common problem with hardtop convertibles. As I live in Chicago, I wanted the hardtop and front wheel drive.
Overall review: It is an amazing car!
