Review of the 2000 Volkswagen EuroVan

  • The EuroVan is unique among minivans, but it lacks the easy handling and user-friendly design embraced by its peers.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Roomy second- and third-row seats, lots of headroom inside the cabin, responsive steering, capable brakes, MV model's flexible cabin arrangements.

  • Cons

    High price, handles like a delivery van around corners, lots of wind noise on highway, awkward driving position, outdated cabin ergonomics, rear seats are hard to fold, no driver-side sliding door or side airbags.

  • What's New for 2000

    During its second year back in the U.S., Volkswagen's EuroVan receives remote central locking, dark-tinted glass on the side and rear windows and a brake-wear indicator. The GLS model receives additional reading lights in the rear and captain's chairs instead of a bench seat in the second row.

Ultimate soccer -mom van

by on
Vehicle: 2000 Volkswagen EuroVan MV 3dr Minivan

I have owned two Eurovans and two Vanagons and the VR6 is the best driving car of them all. It has an awesome engine, though more thirsty than the 5-cylinder version and much more powerful. It is a very comfortable highway cruiser especially for hauling the family and dog to the cottage every weekend. It is the most popular car at rainy day soccer games, with kids inside at the table and under the huge rear hatch. The rear seating is such that kids interact more and play cards at the table instead of Game Boys. Maintenance has been reasonable and been limited to the expected parts that wear-out. Since being off warranty, we've used experienced VW mechanics, but not the dealership.

Vehicle: 2000 Volkswagen EuroVan GLS 3dr Minivan

Let me start by saying I love this van. We are a camping and bike racing family, and we love the utility, comfort and space. HOWEVER - the HVAC system, which I replaced outside of warranty, has been a problem. 5 dealer visits in 18 months, and the error code for the HVAC just started flashing again - so I guess 6 visits (expensive ones) in 18 months. Other problems (electronic mostly) have also cropped up making this the most expensive vehicle to keep on the road I have ever owned. And this is in the first 80,000 miles.




Love it,but!!

Vehicle: 2000 Volkswagen EuroVan MV 3dr Minivan

I love my VW Eurovan, but after 37000 miles I started experiencing major and minor breakdowns, quite expensive. No help or support from Volkswagen. Might have to go back to American made. Too bad because it is a great family van.

Great mid-van

by on
Vehicle: 2000 Volkswagen EuroVan GLS 3dr Minivan

We have owned two Eurovans. The first van was and 1992 and fairly good. It was reliabe. However, this one was slugish. Our 2000 has been outstanding. Except for the air-conditioning, we have had absolutely no problems. In addition, this Eurovan is exceptionally quick and fun to drive. It may seem impossible, but the big ole Eurovan is more agile than some cars I have owned. We are a 5 people family and highly recommend this vehicle to anyone; a great van




We love our eurovan

Vehicle: 2000 Volkswagen EuroVan MV 3dr Minivan

this is the second VW Van we've owned. We love it. It's amazingly versatile and extremely comfortable. There are so many well thought out features that it would be hard to describe all the good things VW built into this model. We expect to keep this van for many years.




Bus

by on
Vehicle: 2000 Volkswagen EuroVan MV 3dr Minivan

The "bus" has been an excellent, reliable car for almost two years. It has better visibility than SUVs, is fast and most importantly, has a huge interior. It is a perfect vacation road car for a family of five. We have had only two problems, a leaking oil cooler and water pump, both repaired under warrantee in less than a day, each. The bus is unique, not many on the road, and drives very well.

Hello. My 2001 Eurovan (70k) will not always go into reverse. There is no grinding, it simply does not engage. After pressing the accelerator repeatedly (revving), it will kind of "jump" int...
