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.

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

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
