2001 Volkswagen EuroVan MV 3dr Minivan (2.8L 6cyl 4A)


We bought our 2001 Eurovan used in 2006 with 70k miles.
Now, in 2014, it has about 130k without any major mishap.
That said, expect to spend about $1500/year on maintenance AND they are notorious for having the transmission die ($6K repair) between 40k-70k miles.
9 years later, our van has taken us on multiple camping trips and has gone to Burning Man several times.
The engine runs a little rougher than it use to but it is still a very nice, drivable car for a large van.
Sadly, I don't think our van will survive for very many more years because various bits are starting to fall apart, but it has not had a gentle life (we park it outside, take it camping, have kids, etc.).

Best Features

- The pop-top and the foldout bed for camping. - The table for feeding the kids after a trip to the zoo or the park. - It seats 7 people so we can take guests as well as our family of 4. - We have a bike rack mounted on the trailer hitch.

Worst Features

- Maintenance is expensive.
