Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2008 Volkswagen Eos Owner Comments

problem #1

Nov 012007

Eos 4-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • miles


I purchased a 2008 Volkswagen Eos on 10/1/2007. About 1 month later I began hearing rattling in the convertible top when it was up. Today is 3/16/2008 and my vehicles has only 2900 miles. I've been unable to drive it due to the rattling noise. It has been brought into VW repair shop 8 times each time they thought it was fixed but when I took it the rattling always came back within a day or 2. I finally had it. They agreed. They voluntarily gave me a phone number to call to start arbitration and told me they would either buy back my vehicle or give me a new Eos.
