2003 Volkswagen EuroVan GLS 3dr Minivan (2.8L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Purchased this van to replace our 93 MV with 193,000 miles. This Eurovan has been exceptionally reliable with 132,000 miles, everything works on this van virtually no problems. Only replaced tires and brake pads, 19 MPG on REG gas, By far the best van in the world bar none.Family of 5, son is 6' 2" and fits with ease. Lots of space, comfortable, fast, handles like a VW known for, great visibility, sit up high, fit and finish still like new, cloth on seats show very little wear, AC is awesome, love overhead AC vents, Has been the most reliable vehicle I have ever owned, wife loves it, kids love it, friends say it is cool and will ride in ours but not in minivans. I would buy again and again!


Favorite Features

Roominess, reliability, power, coolness factor, quietness, smoothness, build quality, fit and finish, body styling, great suspension, VR6 motor, timing chain, easy access to underside of motor, pan keeps motor and tranny clean, I could go on and on and on. This is a well engineered vehicle,


Suggested Improvements

Middle row seats need to recline fully, Better cup holders in front, light under hood. I can't think of anything else. This is an awesome van (not mini) I would buy again if it were available.

2003 Volkswagen EuroVan GLS 3dr Minivan (2.8L 6cyl 4A)


Review

We've had one problem after another with our Eurovan. Great when everything works correctly. The outside door handles have now failed twice (both front doors!). Told by VW that it's not a design flaw, out of warranty and paid nearly $800 to have them fixed only to have the driver's side fail again 6 months later. Now I can't unlock the doors with the keyless entry or hand key without them locking again immediately. Looking for a replacement vehicle now.


Favorite Features

Space.


Suggested Improvements

Customer service would be a good place for VW to start. I will never purchase another VW as long as I live.

Review

Very spacious inside with a nice feel to it and useful extras such as step lights for safety. However the whole vehicle is sadly spoilt by the awful AC which is totally unable to deal with the climate in the Middle East. Have 2 of these vehicles and we can't use them for 3 months of the year as it's so uncomfortable in the heat. I don't know why VW sell it in hot climates when the AC cannot cope - didn't they uprate it for this market?


Favorite Features

Useful features such as electric sliding door, step lights etc make it easy to use. Very spacious and you can sleep in it should you wish.


Suggested Improvements

IMPROVE THE AC!!! We may have to sell these 2 vehicles due to this serious design problem.

Review

Just getting into our 2003 Eurovan. It was a VW executive use here in Canada. It only has 12,000 km on it so time will tell. First impressions are, there isn't a vehicle on the market here in Canada that even comes close to this in build quality. Superb!


Suggested Improvements

Make it available again in Canada in diesel.

Review

This couldn't have bought a more versatile van. It's roomy and seats seven adults very comfortably.
