my mystery machine
By KP on
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.
Size - 4x8 sheet of wood - inside, with the door closed. Power - gets on with it very nicely for the size. Driving comfort - 2 2000+ mile trips taken in it - great road trip vehicle
Reliability. This thing has been an expensive baby with a short warranty period.
