Michael Mason 5pts I surprised my wife with a red 2012 EOS on Christmas morning 2011. She had been saying she wanted one when our Jetta lease ran out and the dealer bought the Jetta out early enabling me to get a great deal in late Dec which is not big convertible weather in Rochester, NY. My wife absolutely loves that car and so do I. It's a nice car to go with our 2012 Volvo S60. We have taken just as many trips in the EOS as the Volvo to Connecticut, Maryland, Boston and NYC, all about 6 hours away. My wife does house-cleaning and can easily manage everything in the trunk even though it is small. On nice summer days, she'll put the vacuum in the back seat so she can put the top down. On our trips, we can easily pack two small suitcases and other essentials in the trunk and still have room to put top down. We often avoid the major interstates for part of our trip to enjoy the top down on some more scenic roads. We have 13 months more to go on our lease and my wife is already worried. She wants another one and could go into deep depression if I tell her it's being discontinued. I really don't want to buy this one because I like leasing and no maintenance and have leased for 20 years now. PLEASE DON"T DISCONTINUE THE EOS, at least not UNTIL AFTER 2015 model year. I'll lease another one for sure if still available. My wife gets so many compliments, esp since it's a stunning red, and has given countless demonstrations of lowering and raising the top. We really like the "hard-top", esp up here where winters are long and snowy. And we drive the car all year. It is truly the most fun car we've ever had and we've had a lot of nice sports sedans. We love the EOS and everything about it. I honestly can't think of one negative thing to say about this amazing piece of German engineering.
