1993 Volkswagen EuroVan Problems
Due to the breakdown of the throw out bearing, premature clutch failure is common.
Our technicians recommend having the constant velocity (CV) boots and CV joints inspected at each service. Servicing torn CV boots early can prevent the need to replace the CV half shaft or CV joint.
The rear brakes tend to wear out quickly; rotors may need replacement by the first brake job. Our technicians recommend that the brakes be inspected for wear regularly.
Reverse gear failures in the manual transmission models are common.

1993 Volkswagen EuroVan Reviews
I bought my '93 Eurovan GL Automatic brand new in late '92, made in Germany and one of the first to be delivered to SoCal. Fortunately, I also bought a 7 yr. 70K mi. warranty, because I would end up needing service DOZENS of times, which would otherwise have exceeded by multiples the cost of the warranty, even though I scrupulously maintained it for scheduled maintenance. Now, at just over 100K miles, this van has been in the shop over 70 times, and every time it seems the dealers messed up something else. Of course, I stopped going to the dealers because too costly. Besides being underpowered, noisy, top heavy, and uncomfortable, it has been the worst car I've ever owned in terms of servicing, worse than anything I could imagine, a real LEMON. Charging system doesn't keep battery charged even though alternator replaced twice, overheated numerous times and one cooling fan failed, oil cooler leaked oil into cooling system, front axle replaced, cat converter replaced, 3 out of 5 locks incl. ignition switch glove box and rear hatch went bad, BOTH electric windows went bad TWICE, speedometer odometer and gas gauge failed, AC major service, transmission now leaks badly and sometimes sticks in 2nd gear, and the list goes on and on. I wouldn't give this POS away to my worst enemy. Next stop: junkyard.
