2009 Volkswagen Eos Problems
An issue may develop where a window will not roll up after a short pulse down. Our technicians tell us this is a normal condition. Cycling the power door lock followed by the key switch will reset the programmer and restore proper window operation.
A brake pulsation may develop due to improper torque of the wheel lug nuts. Our technicians tell us the lug nuts should be hand torqued to the proper specification to help avoid this condition.

RepairPal Expert Overview:
Connectors for a temperature sensor inside the direct shift gearbox (DSG) transmission may have been insufficiently crimped. They could incorrectly read a high transmission oil temperature, and abruptly shift into neutral. The shift position indicator in the instrument panel would begin to flash and the "Depress Brake Pedal" indicator light will be illuminated to alert the driver to apply the brakes. The abrupt shift could lead to a crash. Volkswagen and Audi dealers will reprogram the transmission control module (TCM) with updated software. The recall began October 20, 2009. The Volkswagen recall number is 37E3/S7 and the Audi recall number is 37E5/J7.

2009 Volkswagen Eos Reviews
This "transformer" car gets comments and stares all the time, I love it; fast when you want to stomp on the turbo, good gas mileage when you go easy, back seats for the occasional passengers and 'some' trunk space, as well as it looks inconspicuous when the top is up, and still a hoot to drive.
Complaints would be the premium gas requirement, occasional burping of the DSG transmission at low speeds (hesitation, etc) and the crazy new car prices, I bought used but still with the factory warranty.
I have 57,000 miles on my 2009 EOS. The car has worked perfectly for 2 and 1/2 years now and I love it... The most fun I have ever had while driving!!!
