used car of the day live the van life with this 2002 volkswagen eurovan

For $7,000 and a little bit of work, you can live out your camping fantasies with this 2002 Volkswagen Eurovan.

Equipped with the 2.8-liter VR6 engine and an automatic transmission, this van has 260,000 miles on it. The seller says it runs well and the body is in good shape, but it needs transmission service and the heater isn't hooked up. Also, there is some minor rust and paint peel.

Features include leather seats, cruise control, a moonroof, a rear bench seat that folds into a bed, a fold-up table, overhead lighting, and a CD/MP3 player.

Check out this California-based camper van here.

  • MaintenanceCosts The GT-Line and Long Range aren't going to get more than about 250 miles EPA. That's pretty disappointing for a vehicle in a class that often gets used for long trips. I would have expected at least one trim to hit 300 miles EPA.
  • Watersketch I didn't like them but my cost-conscious boss loved them. Said the 4-cyl versions were a lot cheaper to run than the full-size vans they replaced.
  • William Piper Awful exterior styling…would be a hard pass for that alone. Perhaps for $60k, but $100 large? For this?
  • Sgeffe Gee, a hybrid can have some actual horsepower behind it! With a four-pot ICE as the generator!See what Stellantis can do, and with 1.3 liters, Honda?! (Whose “Accord” will be spanked by a PRIUS!! 🤬🙄)
  • Kcflyer I get the argument to not compete in the sedan market in order to maximize short term profits on SUV's and Trucks. But what happens if Toyota ever gets serious and builds a full line of light and heavy duty trucks? What I'm saying is maybe Ford should continue to build the best vehicles they can in this and other mainstay segments. To paraphrase the last good Dem president, not because it is easy, but because it is hard. Even if the Japanese don't eventually bankrupt Ford, Tesla just might. I understand their sedans sell quite well.
