Thricey,

Good to see more California drivers around. I live in San Diego, but visit LA area frequently to see family.

I'll wave at your white beauty if I see it!

Default A new EOS in SD

I just moved to San Diego (Cortez Hill, just SW of Balboa Park) and am the proud owner of a new EOS with Komfort trim in Thunder Blue.

I'll definitely wave a friendly hello to any other Eos drivers I see. Many years ago I drove a Jeep Wrangler, and there is a tradition among Wrangler owners to wave to each other when you pass. Always enjoyed it, and happy to pick it up, to wave to other people who share similar good taste!

That is close! I'm sure I'll be seeing your Silver Eos driving around before too long!

My wife and I just moved to the area, so we're still learning where things are, and where we can take the Eos out for some nice weekend drives. Frankly, everything is so beautiful at this point that just going for random drives is pretty nice at this point!

Not an owner quite yet. ..

Am Going to local dealer tomorrow to hopefully find that they have one to test drive. Unless there is something awful that I discover, it's most likely that I'll place an order for lease. Eismeer (sp?) Blue/CornSilk VR6 is the plan so far. Red is a close second.

Howdy. Hope you can find what you are looking for. If you want a VR6 it will have to be an 08. Don't dismiss the 4 though. It is a pretty good engine and runs well. And if you are of a mind to and got the money you can chip the 4 and get almost the performance of a VR6. The VR6 only comes with DSG.

We are replacing my wife's '93 Mazda MX-3, and while I do have fun running the little 88HP (insert rolling eyes here) car through the gears, It gets tiresome on the 405 driving home from El Segundo in stop-go traffic. So the DSG isn't a big negative for me.

I'm sure the 6 speed is a blast, though.

In the end, if Long Beach VW has one on the lot that is pretty much loaded and of acceptable color to the wife, we'll probably grab it regardless of drivetrain. We just aren't patient about waiting for things like new cars to be delivered!

I'll post back when we end up with something.

Hello all-
Just found and joined the forum. I bought my Silver 2008 6 speed manual on Friday and took it to Napa Saturday... this car is inspiring. I had never seen one before buying, but have since seen 2 (both white, so maybe the same car). I made out with the best deal since the car was registered by VW of America as a photo shoot car. Since it was registered, they had to sell it as used, but it only had 500 miles on it! I've never been happier with, or more excited about a little car.

Welcome aboard, and grats on the deal! Forum is kind of quiet lately (says he who hasn't checked in for months).

6 months of ownership, and still loving it. HAve only seen about 4 total on the road since buying. 2 in Long Beach in my first week, 1 way up in the Pennsylvania mountains, and one down around Dana Point on PCH awhile back who gave me a wave.

Default Extended Warranty

Good morning, all! I have a question regarding an extended
warranty.

I bought my Eos back in September of 2007. Up through
September of '08, I had no problems. In October '08, my
Eos had some gear problems (I posted here about), so they
changed out the Mechatronics Unit. Everything was fine
until last month. I started hearing a couple of noises. I
took it back to the dealer, and it was recommended by
VW of A that the transmission be replaced - ugh!! So now
the transmission has been replaced. I'm just scared of
what other problems may arise. I didn't purchase an
extended warranty when I bought it. Is there a warranty
I can purchase now at this point? I really love the car,
and I'm *hoping* that was the last of my problems, but
I wanna be prepared just in case, and I don't wanna be
having to dip into my wallet.

Thanks for any information you can provide.

Yes you can buy extended warranty from a VW dealer...I bought one when I got my EOS(2.0T, 2007) last month.

I am up near Los Angeles. I actually drove to San Diego for a Padres game yesterday, and headed back up. Very fun drive down there, until I got to parking, and my oil pressure light went off. Still not entirely sure what is going on with that. But I love my little eos, minus all the service issues I have had.

On my 2nd Eos. Leased a 2008 komfort in 4.08 from Sunnyvale VW. Had to get it from Maryland to get a color I liked with a manual trans. Loved it--but turned it in 2 weeks ago for a 2011 komfort. There were only TWO Eos with manual transmissions in CA available!! I was told that in 2012, only automatics would be available. A car that is this much fun HAS to have manual trans. available, right???

I have loved both of mine.

Thumbs up Sometimes I ride topless and sometimes I don't!!

I'm from South Corona and I haven't seen but one EOS in the six months or better when trying really to look for them specially when your stuck on the 91 freeway with several million cars!!!
Just got mine a bit ago and trying to learn how to take care of the convertible aspect of it also trying to figure out how to get the Front seat rest off so I can put seat covers on?
Other than the faulty airbag is what's causing a lot of the dealership not to sell them when they come in use. I hope they get this recall fixed ASAP!!
