2009 EOS 2.0T-Auto
Hi All, Just wanting to share some info and have a question. Previously owned new 2009 EOS from 2009-2012, and have been without an EOS for the past 10 years. Wife loved our previous EOS and wanted another one. Being a good husband , I purchased a 2009 EOS this past weekend (same as our previous 2009 EOS, however this one is red with black interior, and our other EOS was Navy Blue with white interior (both 4 Cyl with turbo and automatic). Drove 250 miles to buy and pick it up and drove 250 back home the same day (It did have a jack but no spare tire). When I would slow down to exit the interstate, the low oil indicator would come on (oh no?!). EOS had only been driven about 400 miles (yes only 400) in the last 4 years (total mileage 107,000) and it had new battery and like new tires. So after getting home, I determined the following and made some relatively minor repairs in the last 6 days (by the way, paint is immaculate with no dings or chips and no fogging of the head lights and interior faux leather is perfect.) Convertible Top and sun roof work flawlessly, engine idles and accelerates with no problem and shifting is smooth. Changed oil and oil filter (low oil indicator no longer on - came on because the oil was overfilled!). Replaced engine air filter and cabin air filter $25 total for both on eBay (easy peasy replacement); replaced cracked fog light (lens was cracked - no real easy but not bad) - $40 on eBay; replaced rear drink holder $22 on eBay (2 screws, easy peasy); purchased (nearly matching) VW aluminum wheel with Yokohamatire at junk yard ($35) to use as the spare and they threw in VW tow hook, VW lug wrench, VW screwdriver, and new VW center of tire emblems for free. Replacement tire lug covers (ordered set of 20 with VW tool for $5 on eBay), Panel mounted dimmer for panel lights ($8.50); Full set of embroidered (EOS) oem floor mats ($115 on eBay). VW Krypton for convertible seals ($20 on eBay). I'm happy with my $5850 purchase since issues were minor and easy to fix. I was able to locate a free .pdf of the manual on-line View Manual PDF - Manual Directory which is going to be helpful even though I have the hardcopy manual that came with the car. And now my question: 1. Check Engine light was not on until today - I'm thinking it could be the O2 Sensor since the engine idles and accelerates well (maybe original O2 sensor) - your thoughts? Thanks for reading.
