    A mistake that Saab earned one of top 2 positions at "very good" but not recommended due to reliability? How reliable is that?

    They won't love it as soon as the reliability scores drop. I owned on for less then a year. I loved the car...except for the constant problems with roof. It leaked, squeaked, rattled and shook. Then the headliner broke and folded up into the top. One little piece of fabric and the entire headliner had to be completely replaced. It took a month for a dealer to figure out how to fix it. Then it was a 4 day job to fix it. The nail in the coffin was when the dealer told me the liner was a wear and tear item. I got rid of the next week.

    "They won’t love it as soon as the reliability scores drop. I owned on for less then a year. I loved the car…except for the constant problems with roof."

    Typical of VW-Audi products, and now with most other german brands; incl. luxury cars, and esp. Mercedes benz, which recently went so bad as to have NONE of its models recommended.

    I'm surprised the problems were not with the various car systems instead of the roof and the interior

    The dealer had some nerve to tell you it was wear and tear, after only a few months from new!

    But it's true, German cars, and VWs and BMWs in particular, are great fun to drive, and now also have good interiors etc, but the Reliability has been an Achilles Heel for them.

    Yes, in the CR world it's good to be functionally wonderful, but you get bounced for having crappy reliability. I really like the Eos and tried to get someone on our staff to buy one. But it seems to be dropping off the radar here.

    I wish the "jerk" who wrote the article about the Eros convertible would get his or her facts straight. The Eros is NOT a "ragtop" but a hardtop convertible. Do you know the difference between the two? Obviously not!!!

    Do we need more incompetence in this world without adding more to it?

    How come sun-visors do not extend over the windshield in convertibles the way they used to?

    To me that looked very stylish, like the way a woman would put her sunglasses on her forehead to act as a hairband.

    The only cars to do that now are the Prowler and the Corvette, and the '96-07 Sebrings.

    It seems as if the roof on these new convertibles goes on for a good 2-3 inches, (more with the Mini Convt.) before the convertible starts.

    Just a mindless, pointless observation from one who fell in love with a certain look in the 1960s.
