Our family has outgrown our beloved Eurovan, Vanessa. We’ve taken great care of it and have done a lot of camping around Central Oregon. It’s time for it to move onto its next family. (Awning mounted to roof rack is not included in price). We have had Vanessa since 2019 (the previous owner was my father-in-law). It currently has 173,403 miles and is in good driving condition. We have had a lot of work done on the van. All of the mechanical work was done at Thompson’s Import Auto in Bend, Oregon. The van seats seven. The two rear-facing jump seats are easily removable to give more cabin room. The MV trim means that the rear bench seat slides forward and lays flat to make a bed and there is a dining table that flips up out of the wall between the rear bench and the rear-facing jump seats. There is a tow hitch for light towing (VW rates the vehicle for up to 5k pounds). The van is front wheel drive and is quite capable in the snow. We had crossbars permanently mounted to the roof by Cascade Rack in Bend to haul all of our toys. The van is great for camping, for eating a meal on the go, or for taking to the park or the lake. It is a great size for driving around town and is light and bright with great visibility. We have loved this van but are ready to get a pop top for additional sleeping capacity.

I had the transmission looked at by German Transaxle in Bend, Oregon in August 2022. The leak cannot be repaired without a rebuild. Besides the slow leak, the transmission is in good condition and no rebuild is required. - Slow leak of engine oil on passenger side seal. - Check engine light on (code P0411) secondary air injection system incorrect flow. In 2020, Thompson’s Import unplugged and recommended not to replace because does not affect vehicle operation. Result is that check engine light remains on. - Some areas of clear coat failing - Some of the armrests won’t stay up, local upholstery shop says can fix
