1999 Volkswagen EuroVan 3 Dr MV Passenger Van Review
Uniqueness & Utility
Are You Man Enough To Drive This Vw? — There's nothing "mini" about a Eurovan. Bernadette was found after years of looking for a weekend hauler for camping and fun. She's big enough to haul the Vespa or a bunch of friends and their gear for a trip to the mountains, the beach, or the city!
Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)
1999 Volkswagen EuroVan Review
- Cargo space.
Nice 1 For A Van — First, i'm not experienced with other vans than this one, so it's a bit difficult to compare this to any other. Just briefly tested a toyota hiace, and yet i'd say it's better than this one. This is still very handy car to have; quite easy to handle, and easy to load cargo in to it. The pedals take some time to get used to because they feel somehow heavy/sticky. Other than that, i find the steering to be the most difficult thing to get used to; it's kinda like a mercedes-benz (just what people say, never drove one my-self), you have to correct the wheel to center position after each medium or hard turns =( It can be a little tricky and hectic in a city center at rush hour, at least for an unexperienced driver. Besides from that i'd say it's very steady to stear though! Also one would wish for more adjustments on seats. Performance how ever is average at most, when it comes to highway driving; you can barely accelerate at 80-90km/h, with 5th gear at least... The model i drove was with turbo, and yet the lack of performance. I don't remember the engine facts anymore detailed though =(

Good power and AC up front
The fill tank for propane is too low and not easily accessible.
Very Versatile — It is a good camper and also easy to use around town. Can haul a 4'X8' sheet of plywood. I have been driving VW Campers for 35 years. I like the power and AC in the 1999 but really liked the Westfalia interior better.
