Default I need an advice

Hi guys, I'm a new member. I want to buy a car via https://incacar.com/used/cars/volksw...en-Eos-522084/ but Im a bit worried about that, just if they are reliable. Is there someone who knows them, or bought a car from them?
What do you think about that? Thanks for answers.

Surely it's not just about who's selling the car, but what the car is actually like, what if any warranty is given and if it's any good or not for a cabriolet roof system and seals? A salesperson is probably always going to tell you the things you want to hear, because for them it's about closing the deal.

IMHO Dealers don't know much about cars they sell. They pick them up at auctions or as trade ins and its just a paper excercise to advertise and sell them.

The EOS is a very specialized car unlike most others and you should consider getting somebody independent with technical knowledge to give you an opinion? Even then, things may go wrong, but that can happen with any car you buy.

This is especially true when they're selling an Eos - anyone buying should bear that in mind when it comes to any service you may require from the dealer. The same is true of a warranty provider. Whilst you shouldn't have issues getting the standard parts of the car fixed - under the hood it's basically a Golf, after all - the roof is rather special and you should expect the dealer and warranty provider not only to know nothing about the roof but also to try to get out of paying for any repairs to it, so you should check the roof thoroughly. Search the forum for the various checks that you should do.

Google says... Super Ultra Low Emissions Vehicle

but is that in the context you wish to know.

I'd be worried that they don't show any photos of the car with the top down. That makes me suspect that the top doesn't work.

That's also not the actual dealer. It's an "aggregating" website. It's actually sold by J&M motors.
