My wife currently drives a jetta 2.5 with 110k which has been good to us(N/A 2.5 + AT is a good combination) but EOS has been her dream for a while and it looks we found a nice high mileage EOS in the area.
This is a one owner car and has no issues except a few dings and scratches. It looks good and drives perfect. My impression is it was a highway vehicle most of the time.
However, 122k miles seem high (although those are reflected in the price and I had a rock solid G35 with 166k miles on it). I'm a DIY kind of person but I don't really want to buy myself a project car.
What issues should I expect granted car seem to be in good condition? Despite many negative comments about DSG I actually enjoyed it in EOS and I personally think it's a good combination of engine and transmission (I almost think my 328hp 3.7 would benefit from DGS comparing to 7AT which I have now). But how reliable are they especially considering mileage? Should I expect DSG/turbo to explode? Can they make to 200k miles?
any comments appreciated.
