"We bought our 2003 Cetified Pre-owned van about 1/2 years ago. It has been wonderful for our family. We're baffled as to why VW stopped making it, and why VW didn't market it better. We can't say enough good stuff about it. It is the greatest van for families, or people who camp, surf, fish, or hunt. The back seat area has a little table that pops up between the rear facing seat and the bench seat. That has been so convenient for eating, coloring, play-doh, etc. It also comes with a little refrigerator for keeping food cold for picnics or trips to the grocery store, where you have more stops afterward. The fridge, heater, and flourescent lights are all powered by an auxiliary battery. Perfect for overnight trips. The bench seat folds down to make a bed that can sleep two adults. In addition, there is a pop-up top with another bed big enough for two adults. A family with several small children can easily sleep in this van. It's great for days of errand-running. We call it our mobile clubhouse. You can walk around in the van with a minimum of stooping. It's very easy to change a diaper, or lay a blanket or rug on the floor and let the baby roll or crawl around. Need to nurse the baby? Close the curtains, put your feet up, and relax. Children can play in contained safety. Need to change clothes for swimming? Close those curtains, and you have an instant, clean changing room. At night, turn on the flourescent lights and open the windows. No bugs can get in, because there are screens in the windows! Heated seats are great for chilly days, muscle aches (or in my case, labor!). As for how it drives, it has great acceleration, easy to parallel park, you're up high, so it's easy to see. It's just so much fun! We haven't had a bit of mechanical trouble with it. I hope VW decides to bring this van back. We're on our second Eurovan, the first being a '93. We upgraded to the '03, and love it. Eurovans are about as scarce as hens' teeth, so if you find one, buy it!"
