Motor Trend calls this one for the ladies in their New Car Buyer’s Guide. It’s the Volkswagen Eos
ragtop convertible, and, says whoever was in charge of the one-line summary: “Your daughter will love it.”
Well, maybe. My daughter is not so BFFy with VW these days, having driven her Jetta into one of metro Kansas City’s craters d’avenue, following which she was presented with a repair bill that made her nose bleed. On the upside, she’s surely grateful for no longer having to deal with some of the craptacular vehicles from her past, including an early-90s Oldsmobile Bravada whose doors apparently could be opened only with burglar’s tools or divine intervention.
