If you're in the market for a Eurovan Weekender, this is the van you want: complete maintenance history, low miles, good condition, best engine, completely rebuilt transmission, 10k on tires, new brakes/rotors all around, garaged at least its whole life in the Northwest.
Essential the second owner (Car was returned to VW under the California Waranty Buyback Program by original owner at 38k. I can't blame him, he went to get the ABS fixed like 6 times and Pacific Volkswagen couldn't figure out what was causing it, though they did replace a ton of stuff trying to find out. We bought after VW of America correctly repaired the ABS system/shocks at their lease return center). No accidents. (Carfax provided at the end of the ad).
Our family no longer really fits comfortably in the Eurovan for camping (3 kids/2 adults). We have access to a fifth wheel trailer, so its time for someone else to use this car this summer. This is the Weekender package with the pop-top, table, refrigerator under the seat, extra battery, towing hitch, all around curtains. This is a 2002 also, which means you get the best engine they made for the Eurovan, the 2.8L VR6 AXK that puts out 201hp.

The car comes with rubber mats for the whole interior from Eurocampers.com which really protect the carpet. We also replaced the cupholders. We also installed shoulder belts from GoWesty for the second row seats to keep the kids in place. Full synthetic oil since at least 40k miles, changed at 5k intervals.
Cosmetic condition is pretty darn good for a family owned Eurovan. Has some scrapes on the outside and just general light wear. There is a tape that won't come out of the radio. Comes with a spare cupholder for when you snap one off on your trip. Spare florescent light bulb too. 2 magazines for the CD changer. Comes with all the curtains/netting/headrests/etc.
Completely ready to go, everything repaired. Brand new repaired and warrantied transmission which is by far the biggest risk when you buy one of these. You could buy it today and drive it anywhere worry free.
Thanks for the info...
Wish I had seen this a few months ago...
Just bought a 2002 EV Weekender with 87k from the dealer.
Dealer bought back from orig owner.
Dealer is offering a 36kmi/36mo extended warrenty for approx 2.5k.
From your data this sounds like a good investment.
I do not know if the trans and ac are orig... I will find out.
I thought Vortex had a rule against making douche-bag comments about someone's asking price? Weekenders are super-rare, and ones with under 100k miles and full service histories are almost impossible to find. Somebody will pay it.
