Model Highlights

The 2012 Volkswagen Eos has much to offer for those seeking open-air fun. A stylish combination of sporty performance and a three-way folding hardtop means the Eos can be a top-down convertible or a weather-proof coupe with a large sunroof for year round entertainment. For 2012 Eos is offered in three trim levels, Komfort, Lux and Executive.

All Eos models are front-wheel drive and powered by Volkswagen's excellent direct-injected turbocharged 2.0L 4-cylinder engine. The DOHC unit produces 200 hp and 207 lb-feet of torque. It's enough to give the Eos plenty of performance, while offering decent fuel economy, which is estimated at 22 mpg city and 29 mpg highway. VW's brilliant DSG twin-clutch automatic with Tiptronic and Sport mode is standard on all models.

The Eos features a retractable hardtop, which takes just 25 seconds to deploy. Cleverly engineered into that top is a power sunroof, which adds to the car's unique functionality.

Despite its open cabin, the Eos possesses a rigid chassis that allows for responsive and predictable handling, top up or down. Much of this is also due to the car's advanced independent suspension.

In Komfort trim, the Eos offers standard 16-inch alloy wheels, remote entry, power driver's seat with a faux leather surface, power mirrors with integrated LED turn signals, cruise control, leather-wrapped steering wheel, a 6-CD changer, heated windshield wipers, and an astonishing list of standard comfort and safety features. Lux cars come equipped with 17-inch alloy wheels, automatic headlights, rain-sensing wipers, leather seating, interior walnut trim, and a 600-watt stereo. The 18-inch alloy wheels, navigation, xenon headlights, parking sensors and sport suspension are standard on the Executive package.

Safety features abound in the Eos series. Front, side and side curtain airbags are all standard, as is an automatic rollover protection system. Anti-lock brakes and VW's electronic stability program (ESP) are also standard.


Model News

For 2012, the Volkswagen Eos gets an entirely new face. The wide sweep of front grille is new as is the fascia and the new LED headlights.


Value Writeup

The Volkswagen Eos remains a fantastic bargain in convertibles. The retractable hardtop gives the Eos better year-round practicality compared to other convertibles. With nimble front-wheel-drive handling, a high-quality interior, a superb turbocharged engine and plenty of standard features, it continues to have few competitors at the price.

Component

Potential Number of Units Affected
658,303

Summary
Volkswagen Group of America, Inc. (Volkswagen) is recalling certain model year 2010-2014 Golf and Jetta SportWagen, 2007-2010 Passat sedans and wagon, 2012-2014 Passat sedan and Eos, 2009-2014 CC, 2009-2012 Audi Q5, and 2010-2011 Audi A5 Cabriolet vehicles. Upon deployment of the driver's frontal air bag, excessive internal pressure may cause the inflator to rupture.

Consequence
In the event of a crash necessitating deployment of the driver's frontal air bag, the inflator could rupture with metal fragments striking the vehicle occupants potentially resulting in serious injury or death.

Volkswagen will notify owners, and dealers will replace the driver's frontal air bag inflators, free of charge. Volkswagen issued an interim notification to owners on April 12, 2016. Volkswagen owners may contact Volkswagen customer service at 1-800-893-5298. Audi owners may contact Audi customer service at 1-800-253-2834.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

Summary
Volkswagen Group of America, Inc. (Volkswagen) is recalling certain model year 2010-2014 Volkswagen CC, Passat, and Tiguan, 2010-2013 Eos and Jetta, 2011-2014 Golf and GTI, and 2011-2013 Jetta Sportwagen vehicles. In the affected vehicles, debris may contaminate the air bag clock spring, a spiral wound, flat cable that keeps the air bag powered while the steering wheel is being turned. This contamination may tear the cable and result in a loss of electrical connection to the driver's frontal air bag.

Consequence
A loss of electrical connection to the driver's frontal air bag will prevent the air bag from deploying in the event of a vehicle crash, increasing the risk of injury.

The remedy for this recall is still under development. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Volkswagen customer service at 1-800-822-8987.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
