Volkswagen Eos, Car Buying, Convertible
Oct 10, 2008 (9:52 pm)
Persistence pays. Sold my 2000 Chevy Cavalier Z24 convertible on 9/24 after only 6 days on Craigslist. I had already been checking AutoTrader and Cars.com for all new 2007 and 2008 Eos but couldn't find exactly what I wanted within reasonable distance: Paprika Red base turbo. On 9/25 I started checking the VW dealers' sites through VW.com and found the perfect car at a dealer in San Jose, CA (700 miles from my SW Idaho home) for an incredible $27,779 with all four available options on the base turbo: auto, heated seats, floor mats, i-Pod adapter. Sent them an e-mail that night, and got their response Fri. morning: yes, they still had the car. Called them immediately and said I would look at the car over the weekend. Booked the only flight Fri. afternoon from Boise to San Jose and five hours later I called the dealer from the San Jose airport and asked him to send his courtesy car to pick me up (they did!). Saw my true love that evening. Did the paperwork Sat. morning, including the VW Credit 2.9% for 60 mos., and drove home Sat./Sun. with the top down in the 80F sunshine of the Nevada/Oregon desert! Glorious!! Got 32 mpg on its first two tanks of premium.
When I put on the "show" for people by operating the top, they are amazed. There are fewer than ten Eos in SW Idaho, and I really like driving something so cool and so out-of-the-ordinary. And today, I found out just how nice heated seats are, as the temp today was in the low 40's. This is an amazing car!!

Hello all. Just rolled-over 10,000 trouble free miles in our 2.0T Base model, six-speed manual. No issues to report. Fuel economy average is 30.1 combined, 60% highway, 40% city. I alternate every other tank with Premium fuel. I also lube all roof seals every 3 months with Krytox grease. The car has never leaked. I hope all of you are as happy with your Eos' as are we.
#170 of 184 VW Incentives for EOS Really Urgent!
Jul 26, 2009 (3:36 pm)
I've been shopping around for vw eos. Dealer is quoting 5K below msrp on their website on all eos models. Some lux versions are 6K lower than msrp. I want to do my homework before I go talk to the finance guy. Edmunds says there is 1500 cash to dealer incentive that can not be combined with other apr or lease offers. Even with that 5K right out of the bat is too aggressive. I'm assuming there is more to the incentives than I found on the internet. Does anybody know what's the real deal for 2009 models? I'm planning to pull the trigger soon so any quick help is much appreciated.
Based in Arlington, VA
#171 of 184 Where can I find a used MB 320 CLK convertible?

Prices have been falling at a rapid pace, but I still can't find a reasonably priced used MB convertible. Does anyone know of a website or dealer who is asking realistic prices for this car? Thanks for any help you can give me.

Thanks. I didn't realize I had posted it in the Eos category.

So, I decided that I want an Eos, and went to a dealer to test drive one today. They only had one left, a 2009 Komfort in that powderpuff blue that I don't care for. Also, it was an automatic. Here's the kicker...the first salesperson was a bit sarcastic when he said "good luck" finding a manual transmission. I have only owned manuals my entire life, and I have no intention of paying extra for something I don't want or need. This would be a dealbreaker. This car that we drove had around 700 miles on it. I was rather blunt as I told them that if I was buying a car in this price range, I had every intention of getting what I wanted. Then, I was told that dealers have limited amounts they an lay out for the Eos, and if they have already done that for the year, they won't want to special order a car. There was also mention of having been burned in the past by someone saying they wanted a car, it being ordered, and then the person not buying it. At some point, I was left to speak with a second salesperson, and told him clearly that I want a 2010 Eos, Thunder Blue, with grey interior, splash guards, mat kit, and ipod adaptor. NO OTHER EXTRAS. I am being led to believe that this will most certainly be a special order, and that I will have to wait MANY weeks for said car. Obviously, I am shopping around. My question is this (finally)....should it be this difficult to get what one wants? and does anyone have any thoughts on what kind of price I will be able to negotiate if I do have to special order the car? I don't really see where the economy has picked up and people are rushing out to buy a car in this price range, cash for clunkers notwithstanding...so I'd think that the people trying to sell them would be a little more accommodating. What gives?
