2010 Volkswagen Eos TSi 1.4 turbo petrol from UK and Ireland
Lovely to look at, that's all; disappointed
1 year old and the accelerator pedal went. They repaired that no problem.
It was recalled around the same time, and they would not say what for?
Now I have had in the last few months problems with VW not recognising a manufacturing fault, which an independent engineer's report states that I have 3 cracked pistons and the bore is scored. There is no other cause for this; it's a manufacturing problem. We are nearly 4 months down the road and still fighting. We are extremely upset; we paid £25,000 for this car, only to be told after 18000 miles that the engine is no more. We feel possibly the 1.4 engine is not capable for such a heavy car. Has anyone else had a similar problem?
Love the look of the car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Pretty typical for a VAG product, in my experience.
I had numerous problems with my car. Fortunately I had purchased it on a PCP, and so in the end, was able to return it early and be rid of the problems.
The dealer was no help, wanting me to incur costs despite it being a warranty repair. VW themselves were even less helpful ("well we can't really control what the dealers do sir"). Quality aside, these reasons alone would stop me buying another VW. Their customer service is truly appalling.
