VW Delays Launch of Eos

HAMBURG, Germany — Volkswagen has delayed the launch of its Eos coupe-convertible model by two months, to May 2006, because of quality issues, the company said on Tuesday.

Reuters reported that VW Brand Group chief Wolfgang Bernhard made the decision since some "bugs in the system" still had to be worked out. Bernhard said he aims to cut warranty costs at the German automaker as part of its ForMotion Plus restructuring program. Bernhard has said he plans to improve the brand's ranking in quality tests such as J.D. Power's U.S. dependability survey. VW recently placed 34th out of 37 badges.
