3 Year Update

Vehicle2002 Volkswagen EuroVan MV 3dr Minivan (2.8L 6cyl 4A)
ReviewI originally wrote a review back in Nov. 2002 when the van had only 5500 miles on it. Since then I have had no problems what so ever. Overall, the performance has been excellent. Had the engine replaced after my father hit a drainage grate on a newly built section of highway and it took out the oil pan - thanks WSDOT ! Engine replace with lower mileage engine and so far so good. The fuel economy is a little less than before, but may be due to using regular unleaded and more city driving - averaging around 16.5 - 17 mpg. Had to replace tires at 25K, and babied the Dunlops to get this much out of them. Keep wheels balance and van aligned per schedule. Otherwise van has been great.
Best FeaturesRoom, Styling, transmission and motor, brakes.
Worst FeaturesHad slight problem with rear seat latch, better tires than the Dunlops - replaced mine with Nokians for all season. A little more lateral movement due to the tires, but it is not a sports can and the extra mileage is well worth it.
