Just purchased an 08 Eos, with the extended limited warranty (certified pre-owned) with 54k miles. I've driven it all of about 100 miles. I like the looks, the feel, and so far most everything about the car. However, after reading many reviews and now this forum, I'm getting rather nervous.
I'm still getting used to the sounds, feel, and other points of the car. Coming from a manual tranny to an automatic appears to take getting used to. For example, went from park to drive at a drive-thru after paying for the burger. Pushed the throttle, no go for about 2 to 3 seconds, then wham, I got underway after a significant lurch. Not sure if it's me or the tranny?
My previous convertable was an 03 Saab 9.3. I got great service from the vehicle (putting over 70k miles on her over 5 years.)
I am nervous about the top. Not so much leaks, but of items like the top getting stuck half way or down. What do you do when this happens on a trip? Is there an "emergency" way to put the top up or down just to get back home? The oil usage I'm reading about scares me bit also.
I've also heard the 80k service is REAL expensive (2.0 T.)
Tell me I've not made a mistake in purchasing this cool, beautiful car. Please?
