    Looker-larger Interior Than Most-surprising Ride. — Like it even though it is a bit expensive to maintain-water cooled, rear engine, never needed snow tires, superior people hauler, and always got the onlookers. There are very few and far between Volkswagen Vanagon vehicles that you can find to purchase that have been well maintained.***** And if you do,lots of $$$$$$$ will be needed.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Water cooled--good heat-super comfortable, and fantastic ride and visability.

    Cons: Touchy to maintain vehicle properly,and high cost for major repairs.

    1990 Volkswagen Vanagon GL Camper Passenger VanReview

    Great Car For The Right People. — So-So Performance, Excellent Build Quality, Styling Is Fabulous for a german car, Maintenance is pricey, along with fuel because vehicle is underpowered and heavy getting not very good fuel economy. The van is very fun to drive :). And remember, It's Not A Car, It's A Volkswagen :D

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: Large Space, Ergonomic, Versatile.

    Cons: Maintenance Costs, Mechanical Design, Fuel Economy

    1990 Volkswagen Vanagon Carat Passenger VanReview

    Vw Vanagon — Love the car, but I have to work on it more than we actually get to drive it. If they put a good engine in it this would be an ideal family vehicle. But as it is the engine sucks.

    Pros: Everything except reliability

    Cons: Reliability

    Ever Been Passed By A Vw Van On An On Ramp? By Litew8

    I like it a lot! The Subaru SOHC 16V non-interference engine is bullet proof and matches up to the Vanagon 4 Spd perfectly. If you like, you can drive in 3rd gear at 70 mph. Cruising at 90 mph at sea ... Read More

    It's Not Just A Car ; It's A Volkswagen By VAUDImike

    Vanagons are a brick in the wind yet are suprisingly driveable. the 1.9L boxer 4 is capable of keeping up with traffic at 20 - 22 mpg. build quality is endorsed by quantity of survivors. 2nd & 3rd row... Read More
