"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!"

"If you have kids and are the kind of people who enjoy day trips or week long excursions this is the best vehicle for you. Not harder on gas than vehicles of it's class it can be driven as an every day car. Kids love the idea of sleeping in the van. For day trips we like to pop the top up just to use for the inside head room. The fold out table and seat figuration is great for meal breaks wherever you may be. I have had Vanagons in the past so I was used to the roomy interior but the Eurovan would be like comparing a Mercedes to a VW bus. The 99-02 Eurovans have all the added features and are a nice handling ride. More power than we need the VR6 motor has had absolutely no problems in 90k and we expect to get 100k more. The auto trans mission is ok but seems hesitant to shift in the early speeds at times. This is a characteristic of this van. We have had the dealers check everything out and it shows no error codes so we are fine with it. Our favorite thing about the van is the amount of space in the interior. No more kids knees in the backs of your seats. The rear seat makes into a bed or simply lies flat to carry misc. The removable captains chairs are easy to remove and reinstall. These vans are a bargain because the only thing that is comparable is the German designed Dodge Sprinter van which costs between 35-85k depending how you want it configured. The Eurovan Weekender pop-top truly is the "swiss army knife" of vehicles."

Pros: "Lots of power. Lots of room. Fun to drive. Unique."

Cons: "Expensive to maintain,Poor leg room for the driver"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"This is a unique vehicle to drive. I love every minute of it. It is comfortable on road trips and driving around town. Lots of room for my kids and their stuff. It is different than all the other vans out there now. The only down sides I have for this van are; you can't stretch out your left leg, and parts for it can be very expensive. My van has a lot of miles on it, and it is still going strong."
