High price, handles like a delivery van around corners, lots of wind noise on highway, awkward driving position, outdated cabin ergonomics, rear seats are hard to fold, no driver-side sliding door or side airbags.

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.

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.

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.

We have owned two Eurovans. The first
van was and 1992 and fairly good. It
was reliabe. However, this one was
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

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.

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.
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.
