I fully understand Toledo Joe's
frustration. I had all the problems he
had with my CL Eurovan, plus more. The
rear A/C unit went within the first
year, along with the battery, then the
horn, and the odometer. I had the auto
shift lever stuck at park three times at
carparks, the last time resulting in me
having to tow it to the dealer. The
engine is under powered, the response
very sluggish. There is a big thump
every time the automatic gear shifts.
Rain sips through from the window and
the wind shield. The new Passat looks
nice but I don't think I have the
courage to try another VW.

Great vehicle for hauling people. Lot's
of headroom and great windows. More
space than any other van. 5-speed
standard transmission is great for
loads and mountains and cities. Middle
seat is in and out easily for variety
of purposes. Over 23 MPG on trips.
Great in mountain snow. Rear AC unit
recommended for summer trips. Very
The EuroVan is introduced as a replacement for the aging Vanagon. Major differences over the previous-generation Volkswagen van are the switch to a front-engine/front-wheel-drive platform. Antilock brakes are available on the EuroVan, and it has a 2.5-liter five-cylinder engine that produces 109 horsepower. A five-speed manual transmission is standard, a four-speed automatic is optional.
