No, its not a "minivan", where that
term is currently defined as an
overgrown passenger sedan. It is almost
the size of a full size van on the
outside and inside, but it is so much
more driveable than any other full size
van. The driving position is the
popular "very high" - I can see over
all other minivans and even most SUVs
on the road. On separate occasions,
I've hauled 1) 7 adults very
comfortably, 2) a large roll-top desk,
and 3) several pieces of 12-foot long
2x6 lumber. It all fits. We also used
it on our family vacation last summer
with great success. Too bad 2002 is the
last production year.
Huge interior, high driving position,
uniqueness. Utility vehicle heritage
yeilds a strong, safe passenger van.
Excellent braking ability. Convenient
12v outlets everywhere.
More sales/marketing support to put
more Eurovans on the road, increase
resale value, and improve parts/service
distribution. VW should supply
floormats as standard equipment (it
does on all their other vehicles).
Radio needs updating.
