2001 Volkswagen EuroVan Reviews
I've not actually owned a Eurovan but I've worked on them for years and years as a technician at the VW dealer.The majority of the issues are maintenance items such as brake pad and rotor replacement , some coolant leaks and occasional electrical issues including check engine lights. Nothing really dificult to resolve.
The owners love these cars for their utility , and space.I see them used for camping trips , day to day family "shuttle" and all around city vehicle.
They are large vehicles and most of the wear and tear is related to that.
Just my impressions as a non-owner......
