2002 Volkswagen EuroVan MV 3dr Minivan (2.8L 6cyl 4A)


Bought a Eurovan used with 60,000 miles. In great condition when purchased. Car computer died at 80k, the dealer told my wife the car had "a head ache" and it would cost $2500. I refused and insisted it must be under warranty and under my persistence was then covered by my warranty. Hmm. The car drive like a giant box. The interior is average, the seat are uncomfortable for long trips. The cup holders and plastic part break. A sliding window took 5 trips to the dealer, 18 hrs, and $600. The transmission is going out at 120k, and the brakes are expensive and require special tools. One door handle is broken, the window is stuck, the dealer says $500 to fix. AC died. Hard to find a mechanic

Best Features

The size is great and the overall concept of the car is great. The V6 is quick, unfortunately the van doesn't handle with the suspension provided. The back seat folds down into a pretty good size sleeping area, and a child can sleep on the floor. Great for camping with the fold out table and curtain

Worst Features

Improved quality of interior. The finishing details and comfort are lacking. Improve the mechanical integrity.
