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

Review

Photos of VW's new T5 abound on the net, but I doubt you'll see one in the US. With VW bringing the MicroBus, you'll have to decide whether the last Eurovan is for you We purchased a 2003 GLS (built in April 2002) & the Eurovan's overall utility is setting in. The Eurovan has certainly made errands & family trips much easier. It rides & handles much better than its height suggests, & build quality is high. We are impressed with its ease around town: power to accelerate/pass, no harder to park/backup than our 4Runner, & right size for a family of 5. All of this could be said about the vanilla minivans. But, the Eurovan has a niche & one you'll recognize

Favorite Features

Gas mileage = to our SUV: 19 mpg in mixed driving. Excellent Asymmetric-sized side mirrors! Complaints about the radio are unfounded. Good sound & OEM CD changer is available for $250 (off the Net OR More from dealer.) Large hatch keeps you dry when loading items in the rain!

Suggested Improvements

Difficult driver entry/exit. No tilt wheel. Rear window washer is inadequate. No Dealer included floor mats. "Fuzzy" interior fabric not conducive for young family. Will need seat covers. No overdrive: 60mph = ~2950RPM. Seems too high. No tilt wheel.
