2001 Eurovan Weekender Package

by Magic Bus Driver from Houston, TX on July 5, 2006

The Unreliabilty is Unending. We had high hopes and purchased the "concept" of a spacious van with the camper and mini fridge features. Front end is too heavy and eats tires every 20K! Yes, we've tried to fix it, can't be fixed. The expensive sensors (like camshaft sensors) keep failing as is common with newer VWs. 2 engine mounts broke within the first 2 years with city driving, brake pads every 2 years and the fridge broke after 6 uses. Fridge also cannot be fixed only can be replaced. The list goes on and on. Very rough ride. Great Concept, Poorest performance, zero reliability.

Fun Fun Fun

by German Fun Mobil from Wisconsin on March 23, 2014

We love our VW Eurovan and wished we could buy a new one! Unfortunately no new ones are available in the US (although you can buy a new one in Germany) and they are getting harder and harder to find. We drove it in winter and summer, great AC for such a spacious van. Never got stuck anywhere. We love how fast it turns into a "hotel"!

A daily comfortable diver, you can sleep in!

by Kahbookie from Boise, ID. on November 21, 2017

Nothing like having your daily driver double as your camper. It is great to be able to load the family up and go in this VW Weekender. This VW is both a comfortable commuter and a spacious getaway camper. The kids have plenty of room for those short 300 mile trips to see the parents, as well as the 3,000-mile summer road trips. Great mileage on the open road 20-22 @ 80 mph on the Interstate. Plenty of power to haul your family and your gear wherever you want to go. This bus is also GREAT in the snow and is the ski rig of choice when headed for the slopes. Every family should have one!

A daily driver that you can camp in!

THe VW Weekender gives you the best of both worlds. The Weekender is a comfortable daily driver that converts easily for camping.

Rockin' Van

by Reilly from N.C. on November 28, 2010

I have had mine since it was new and have LOVED it.It's MUCH cooler than any other minivan and my teenagers even want to drive it ! People always stop to look at it, and it's great for tailgating, roadtrips, and the drive-in !!

Convenience to the max

by Trailrunner from Western Colorado on November 24, 2010

Although this car is a VW and you won't get the reliability of a Japanese car, where can you find a fully equipped RV that sets up anywhere, fits in your garage and gets 20mpg? We can stop on the road and pop the top, cook lunch, drop the seat and take a nap. It takes all of 10 minutes to button it up and get back on the road. Furnace is a great feature for colder weather camping.

Disenchanted

by New Eurovan Owner from Santa Cruz, CA on November 26, 2008

I fell in love with the looks of this vehicle and wanted a small van to go camping. I bought the used Eurovan weekender with 50,400 miles on it. I ended up needing a spare key, which remotely unlocks the doors, and spent $275. After driving it for about 200 miles it needed a brake switch replaced which cost $180, the part was about $12. The dealer gave my mechanic the wrong switch (the one has the black tip, twice) and I then I thought it was going to need a new brake pump and computer module as the ABS light on the dash stayed on. After taking it to the dealer I found it needed the white tip brake switch (another $200) and all was well. With another 1,100 more miles and a friend saying that the ride was a bit on the hard side, I found it needed four shocks cost $970 with labor. It seems to me the VW manufacturer probably had the components made as cheaply as possible and due to the complexity of the design and engineering it is very expensive to have a mechanic repair it.
