Used Car of the Day: 2003 Volkswagen Eurovan Weekender MV

It's been awhile since we've had some van time. Today, though, we rectify that with this 2003 Volkswagen Eurovan Weekender MV.

The seller is the third owner and has owned it since 2016. He or she says it's been mostly used for camping, and it sits in a garage when not being used for sleeping in the woods.

Our seller says the van has been well maintained but more maintenance is due soon.

It does indeed look like a serious amount of maintenance work has been done, judging by the list provided in the ad.

There are some concerns, though. The mileage is 235K, the windshield has a cracked, it will need timing chains soon, and there's air injection leak. Oh, and the torque converter lockup is "weak."

The asking price is $17,000 for this Tennessee-based van, and the seller also has a running parts-bin Eurovan that will be thrown in. Our seller will also take trades.

    Just because you don't see many of them on the road doesn't mean they go up in value. I'm sure finding parts for it will be an adventure. 🙄

    That fold out table would have been awesome...until you hit something. It's a cult car, and there probably aren't many left, which explains the silly price.
  • Varezhka Saving sedans in US or globally? Right now around half of the global sedan sales is in China, just under a quarter in North America, and the remaining quarter distributed around the rest of the world. So for a sedan to stay around they must sell well in both China and North America (BMW, Mercedes, Toyota, Honda) or just extremely well in China (VW/Audi and Nissan). For everyone else, the writing is on the wall. There’s also a niche of subcompact sedans in SE Asia and India but I believe those are being replaced by SUVs too.
  • Kcflyer it's not a ford, it's not a mustang. just like the ford gt is not a ford but multimatic gt or mustang wouldn't roll off the tongue
  • Kcflyer it's simple , most are too stupid to find china on a map , much less understand the evil of communism. which is, i guess, better then openly pushing to embrace communism/socialism......cough...dnc....cough
  • Kcflyer stop comparing to cars made in europe or other parts of asia to chinese cars those are not putting money directly in pockets of communist dictators who are actively trying to destroy the u.s.
  • The Oracle Not interested at this time. Any will be BEV only and I’m not ready for one of those.
