2009 Volkswagen Eos Owner Comments

I purchased my 2009 VW Eos from a dealeriship "as-is" and I have had to replace the maf sensor, throttlebody had to be serviced with in the first year of owning. Oil leaking from engine onto the water pump. Now, the ABS and traction electrical system is completely messed up and I can't drive it. Estimation of $2500 worth of work.

Car experiences sudden loss of acceleration, nearly causing accident from cars behind. This has happened sporadically in motion on city streets and the car has been back to the dealer (VW world nptune NJ) several times. First time they could not replicate problem and nothing was done, second time they replaced several components at cost of $2,000 but that did not fix problem and now it back at dealer and they are asking another $1300 for repairs.

The contact owns a 2009 Volkswagen Eos. The contact stated that the vehicle drove roughly and hesitated. The vehicle was taken to an independent mechanic who was not able to replicate the failure. On another occasion, while at a stop and depressing the accelerator pedal, the vehicle failed to accelerate and the accelerator pedal required excessive force. In addition, the vehicle stalled on several times. The vehicle was taken to a dealer where it was awaiting a diagnosis. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 100,000.

The contact owns a 2009 Volkswagen Eos. While driving various speeds, the vehicle failed to accelerate when the accelerator pedal was depressed. In addition, the contact noticed an abnormal odor of fuel when driving. The contact mentioned that the electronic power steering, engine, and automatic transmission warning light illuminated. The failure recurred constantly. The vehicle was taken to a dealer where it was diagnosed, but the failure was not determined. The throttle body, coil pack, and fuel injector were replaced but the remedy failed. The manufacturer were made aware of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 100,000.

Check engine light came on, when taken to dealership they say I have a faulty intake manifold runner and it needs to be replaced. If not the vehicle may/will stall. This same part was recalled in the 2006-2008 models of this vehicle and several others. Are the 2009 models affected? the vehicle has been maintained all maintenance has been done to manufacturers recommendations.
