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


Review

I gave this van 10/10 for design, though i realize many people wouldn't think this way. This van was built for practicality, not faux luxury, and that is why it didn't survive in the American market. We bought this van 3 years old, with a pretty hefty number of miles on it, while stationed overseas. It racked up a ton of miles, and the only two problems it ever gad, were, suprise it's a volkswagen, electrical: not terribly expensive, and totally manageable if you know what you're doing. No mechanical problems whatsoever at 7 years old, and almost 125,000 miles ! We were rear-ended and totalled this weeked at a very high speed: van didn't collapsee in toward us at all ! Nothing like it :o(


Best Features

removable/rearfacing seats, high head room, incredible visibility virtually no blind spots,


Worst Features

If they "luxed" this up like they are doing to the newer ones in Germany I think it could have made it on the American market- the Routan doesn't do it, and the boxy style is becoming in vogue- just add some fake metal/wood and stuff in the interior and American will eat it up.

Review

I have the Winnebago Camper version. Original owner and it's a horrible lemon. I'm on the third set of tires (recommended tires are no longer manufactured!). A/C ($1500) went out at 3 yrs., 58,000 miles. Brakes replaced 2x so far. And now I have to replace my timing chain ($2000). All this on a 5 year old, 75,000 mile vehicle. Oh yeah, the transmission is starting to slip a little, that's next! Don't buy this lemon!


Best Features

The stove, sink, beds, everything but the reliability!


Worst Features

Build a better product. Only comes with a 50,000 power train warranty, I wonder why???

Review

We purchased a used 2003 Eurovan Weekender in February 2008. What a pure joy as a family of 4 to own and drive. We are consistently complimented on our wagon. It has far exceeded our expectations in roominess, handling and ease of operation. Our kids absolutely love being in it. Go get one today!


Best Features

Interior amenities and exterior design.


Worst Features

Leather seating would be nice.

Review

Driving this van is like riding on a cloud. Smooth transmission with power to pass as needed. INterior is deceivingly huge (you can easily carry ten 4x8' pieces of drywall in the back!). Seats could be bigger, and if you are over 6' tall, the sun visor limits your sight distance a bit. Rear facing 2nd row limits the recline of the front seats, but makes cargo space a snap.


Best Features

Classic VW styling.


Worst Features

Make front seats larger and slightly lower.

Review

Bought the MV Weekender Package. 4 years and 60,000 miles later couldn't be happier with the car. There isn't a more fun minivan out there. Kids just love it. No complaints, holding up well. Premium gas is only negative I can think off.


Best Features

Weekender package with pop top sleeps four easily, rear-facing middle seats and table stimulate interaction between passengers.


Worst Features

Start selling them again in North America.
