Think of it more as a Euro truck
By Frank Eurovan on
Vehicle2003 Volkswagen EuroVan GLS 3dr Minivan (2.8L 6cyl 4A)
ReviewNo, itís 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.
Best FeaturesHuge interior, high driving position, uniqueness. Utility vehicle heritage yeilds a strong, safe passenger van. Excellent braking ability. Convenient 12v outlets everywhere.
Worst FeaturesMore 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.
