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.
i own a 93 standard trans eurovan mv. i cant figure out why the coolant light flashes but i love my van!
I order my 1993 Eurovan MV 8 months before initial delivery to the states was scheduled. It has a manual 5speed transmission with 5 cylinder 2.5l engine. It has 230,000 miles and is going strong. Normal repairs on the running gear but the engine and transmission have never been opened. Superb vehicle for camping or work. It averages 25 to 27mpg after I replaced exhaust system with a Magnaflow muffler. Only downside is that it now sounds like a well running deisel when idling.
