This is our second Eurovan after owning
a '93 for almost 100k miles. The VR6 is
a wonderful engine, lots of power to
tow our 26' Chris Craft, and decent
mileage (~18 daily driving). All areas
of the car were improved with one
exception- the driving position was
somehow made uncomfortable, I start to
get leg cramps after half an hour.
The van is much quieter than the older
model, and cruising on the highway is
effortless. The Michelin Enegy tires
are great for comfort and handling, and
they improve the fuel mileage, too.
In addition to the better engine, VW
added a rear stabiliser bar which
improves the handling.
VR6 engine has twice the power with the
same economy as the old 5 cylinder on
the '93. Huge brakes. Great tow vehicle.
Change driving position back to the way
it was in '93. Raise heater controls up
closer to eye level, its hard to
decifer the symbols on it.
