Pros

Well designed hard top convertible. Quick turbo 4 cylinder. Very crisp shift from the DSG transmission. Excellent MPG especially considering the acceleration. Comfortably firm European build quality/ride.  

Cons

Stock tires not up to sporty handling nature. DSG can be hard to launch at medium acceleration (seems you can either launch slow or light em up down the road). A bit more cowl shake than I would expect from a car that was designed to be a convertible. Top operation is a bit slow (about 25 seconds to open or close, still pretty good for a hard top convertible though).

Great Little Sporty Convertible With Enough Practicality To Be Used Everyday. — My wife decided that since nearly her entire morning commute is driving along a nice winding road through Saguaro National Park it would be nice to have a convertible that would better let her experience the natural beauty on her way to and from work each day. We looked at a number of cars and configurations and decided on the VW EOS for it's peppy turbo, modern DSG automatic transmission and convertible hard top. So far this is a decision that we do not regret. Our little EOS has more than met our expectations by providing everyday practicality along with convertible fun. The zippy 2.0 turbo 4 gets excellent MPG averaging over 30mpg combined city highway in our experience. Even with the top stored in the trunk you can still have enough space to run a few small errands and with the top up trunk space is comparable to any other compact sedan and you can still enjoy some open air driving thanks to the enormous sunroof built into the convertible tops operation. Another nice touch is the single button to put all four side windows down or up at one time. Overall a great little car that offers the rare combination of both fun and practicality in equal measures.

The Trade-offs Are Worth It. — After driving cars with V6 engines, this 4 cylinder took some getting use to, but the turbo helps and adds to the fun. The car has integrity, looks great, and is very fun. I miss little touches like storage for sunglasses, CDs, etc., but for the fun I'm having, it's an acceptable trade-off. This is not a family car -- far too little storage, but for just me, it's great!

Greatest Car Ever (to Date) :) — I just purchased an EOS today and so far I love it! The car drives like a dream and is gorgeous to boot. It's roomy enough and has the great option of sunroof/convertible. Unfortunately it was pouring today, so couldn't go topless :) I did notice a small wind noise from the driver's side with the top up, but no rain came in. Not sure if that's normal or not yet. I didn't hear when I test drove another car, but it also wasn't crazy windy that day and I wasn't on the highway. So far, handles great. I previously had a Jetta with the works and this matches the interior except for the radio controls on the steering wheel. Still getting used to not having that. As for the fun factor? Doesn't get much better than the EOS!! I would highly recommend this car for an affordable midlife crisis LOL

Vw Eos - Not For Everyone — While its a fun summer car, the FWD makes this car suffer from a a bad case of torque steer as the car barely weights anything! The best part of this car is the convertible hard top which features a retractable and tiltable sunroof - not only is it an industry first, but it's the biggest sunroof on a coupe i've ever seen!
