1991 Volkswagen Vanagon Multi 3dr Minivan


Review

This is about the 12th or 15th VW van I've owned since 1974. It has more horsepower than the air cooled editions, does better in hot climates (Central CA), and just feels good to drive on a leisurely road trip to nowhere in particular. With the beds, pop top, table and rear-facing seats it is great for a weekend getaway or hauling the kids to soccer games - but is definitely NOT a Chrysler mini-van. Gas mileage isn't great (16-18), uphill climbs are generally not a big problem (if its a long steep one, don't get in a hurry), and it's comfortable to drive. Amazing people and cargo room too! A/C works well and can get downright cold! These are getting harder to find and the prices are climbing.


Favorite Features

Style, versatility, roominess and the "community" of other VW van folks who are about the friendliest folks on the road - always willing to chat or help in a pinch.


Suggested Improvements

Optional 2.4 liter engine - aftermarket - is a good upgrade as are 15-16 inch wheels and brighter headlamps.

1991 Volkswagen Vanagon Multi 3dr Minivan


Review

This car travels like a dream. We have a family of four and love the fact that we can turn the back seat into a queen bed for camping excursions. It is lighter than the camper, thus speeder!


Favorite Features

Air vents throughout, good on gas


Suggested Improvements

The body leaves a lot of work for improvement as it is a sardine can

1991 Volkswagen Vanagon Carat 3dr Minivan


Review

Large interior space makes it ideal for hauling people or stuff. Trunk space is huge compared to typical minivans. Rear facing passenger seats are ideal for kids.


Favorite Features

Spacious interior. Ease of maintenance


Suggested Improvements

Better sound insulation would be nice to quieten road noise.
