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


Review

This is my third Eurovan (two 1993's and this 2003) and I have loved them all, but this 2003 is my favorite. The fit and finish of this vehicle is excellent and exceeds anything else out there. It provides wonderful, balanced power. Its solid feel and excellent road manners make this van a true joy to drive. In all honesty, I looked at all of the new vans available to make sure I wasn't missing anything. True, I don't have in-seat DVD players and I couldn't care less. What I do have is SPACE, huge quantities of it and functionality galore. We have enjoyed many road trips in our Eurovans. It defines Farfegnugen! Everybody who rides in my van loves it! I've gotten 25,000 miles of trouble free operation from this one so far.


Best Features

I love the comfortable, solid, and confidence inspiring road manners. Electronic stability control and four wheel disk brakes with ABS make this huge vehicle start and stop with ease and confidence, especially in winter. the heat / AC is automatic and excellent. It also has excellent gauges and controls. This van is rock solid.


Worst Features

Quite honestly, there really isn't anything I long for in my van but then again, I am a lover of simplicity and functionality. If I had to make a wish, I would wish for the under the hood lights of the 1993 Eurovan which for some reason has disappeared in my 2003. That was a nice feature.

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


Review

This is our second Eurovan after owning
a '93 for almost 100k miles. The VR6 is
a wonderful engine, lots of power to
tow our 26' Chris Craft, and decent
mileage (~18 daily driving). All areas
of the car were improved with one
exception- the driving position was
somehow made uncomfortable, I start to
get leg cramps after half an hour.
The van is much quieter than the older
model, and cruising on the highway is
effortless. The Michelin Enegy tires
are great for comfort and handling, and
they improve the fuel mileage, too.
In addition to the better engine, VW
added a rear stabiliser bar which
improves the handling.


Best Features

VR6 engine has twice the power with the same economy as the old 5 cylinder on the '93. Huge brakes. Great tow vehicle.


Worst Features

Change driving position back to the way it was in '93. Raise heater controls up closer to eye level, its hard to decifer the symbols on it.

Review

Roomy second- and third-row seats, lots
of headroom inside the cabin,
responsive steering, capable brakes,
only van door that meets ADA standards
for door opening to accomodate
wheelchair without modification.
VW has a real gem of a disabled
accessible rear cabin. Add only ramp
and hold down and you are good to go
with a wheelchair thanks to easy in/out
of rear seat!

Cons: Handling takes getting used
to...especially around corners or
parking, wind noise on highway similiar
to early Suburbans, no driver-side
sliding door or side airbags.


Best Features

Interior space & door


Worst Features

Drivers side door
