  1. Engine & Drivetrain
    Hi all! I just purchased my new baby yesterday, and I’ve noticed that on hills she’ll roll back when I let off the foot brake before I apply the accelerator. I previously had a Passat and never had this happen, so I’m just wondering if that’s normal? Thanks!
  2. Eos Photos & Videos
    Hello all I hope you are all having a great day so far. I wanted to share my story and get some opinions and feedback from anyone willing to take the time to read this.

  3. Engine & Drivetrain
    Recently my 2008 eos started hard shifting 1st and 2nd gear while in automatic mode. When I use tiptronic mode (manual) I can usually rev match and shift pretty smoothly. This makes me think that something is wrong with the computer. Just started happening recently and might be a cause of me...

  7. VW Eos Tech Q&A
    I have a 2010 Eos Lux and hate 1st gear. It's a dog unless I use the sport mode. Put it in drive and it seems to have little power. Finally, it will catch 2nd gear and go great. I have had the dealership test drive it and test the transmission in the shop, but they claim that that is just...
  8. Engine & Drivetrain
    I recently purchased a 2008 Eos 2.0T DSG it only has 12k miles on it. I've noticed when I'm sitting still in gear I feel and hear a very low purring or buffeting soft vibration that kind of has a soft clicking to it; it goes away when the car begins to move or is taken out of gear. Also, where...
