I just bought a 2008 Eos for 412$ a month on a 3 year lease. I have had it 12 days and it started leaking today when I took it out in a rain storm. I am sooo... disappointed. I bought the car in Orlando close to Sanford, Florida. It had about 60 miles on it. I wonder if someone else brought it back to the VW dealership before. How did they keep it outside with the roof leaking on both sides for almost a year? I wish I could just switch it for another EOS that doesn't leak. I am not sure what my rights are in this area from a legal perspective. They want to seal the front on both sides in the morning at the dealership. I hate to pay so much money for a car that isn't perfect. I wish I knew that EOS cars leak. I just googled my problem and found this site today. Does anyone know if you can insist on another car due to the fact that it has flaws? Thank you for your help.

Never wanted to admit I'd have a problem with my EOS, but after 7 months, 6K miles and 5 weeks in the shop, I would not recommend this car. It was in the shop for 3 weeks with problems with the top (it would only open half way then stop) they replaced every conceivable part before finding one of the wing sensors was bad. Then the deck lid would not close, two weeks to fix that, now, we had a major rain in Texas and trunk was half full of water after the storm. Brings "quirky" to a new level.(2008 Eos Lux Pkg)

I know how you feel! I got an attorney and they agreed that it was an official lemon and agree to replace it with a new car; however the new car had nothing in it, just basic. Now I am waiting for another one that has everything in it that mine had. At this point I am hearing that the 2008 also leaks. I think they should just recall all of them until they work out the kinks.
I am now shopping for a new attorney because I don't even want another EOS, I want something else.
Once I find an attorney i will post the process.

Wow I'm sorry for you guys.
I've got a '07 and she hasn't leaked a drop (fingers crossed).

I picked up my 2008 Eos at the end of May. I park it in a garage, but have driven through a few rainstorms and have had the car washed in a car wash. No leaks. Also, I have never had a problem with the top being stuck mid-way. So far, the car is a complete joy to drive.

How did they fix this problem? What did they say was the cause? Did yo need to lubricate the seal like the other leaks?

I am a service advisor with a local VW dealership and it is a known fact that EOS'S have a water leak problem at the seal that runs along the back side of the roof that meets the rear glass panel area. The problem is the seal is not properly sealed against top panel thus allowing water to enter into the rear inside qtr. panel and settling into and under the carpeting. VW is aware of this concern and has a fix with a updated sealant that the dealership can order. this procedure which includes complete removal of interior trim, seals, seats, etc will usually take approx 4-5 hours depending on how wet the interior is. Extra time may be needed to dry interior. VW should supply a rental while procedure is being processed since the vehicle is under warranty and this IS a factory known problem.

I bought a new VW EOS in June 08 in Luxembourg, the car has spent more time in the garage than with me.
Every time it rains, water seeps in on the back right & left hand side.
They are now in the process of replacing all the rubber joints to see if this will fix the problem..VW should actually advertise the extra hidden option(swimming pool)
To sum it up... I regret having bought the EOS...

I think all VW EOS should be recalled as lemons! I had the seals replaced along with every thing else in the car - it was practically rebuilt. Finally after getting a lemon law attorney VW agreed that it was indeed a lemon and replaced my 2007 with a 2009. Guess what - after having the car one week it wouldn't start. This new car needed a new starter! You better believe I will never buy another VW as long as I live.
