1990 Volkswagen Vanagon Minivan Carat 3dr Minivan


When I bought my Vanagon, I never thought that nearly 20 years later I would be writing a review about it. But with nearly 200,000 miles on the original drive train, numerous Boy Scout camp outs, hauling firewood, stuffed bears, cages of chickens and exotic birds, it has become a part of my family's history. It is simple enough to do most of my own repairs, extremely durable and reliable. Fuel economy is fair considering the lack of aerodynamics. It truly is a vehicle that you can own your entire life.

Best Features

The ability to fold out the back seat into a bed and do some weekend camping.

Worst Features

Like all VW, more power! It only had 90 hp to start with and I think about 20 of them have died over the past 20 years. A rebuilt motor might be the next major repair, although it still runs fine.
