This is our 5th VW Westfalia and by far the best one we ever had. It is powerful, reliable, and fun to drive. We purchased this vehicle new with 0 miles in 2002 and had it serviced at the local VW dealer or the wonderful VW mechanic we have used for 40 years. We have most if not all service records.
Most all of the 180K miles have been on the blue highway where we feel most comfortable but it handles the interstate fully loaded with ease. We have used it very little around town, although it is extremely reliable and easy to park.
To accommodate our style of travel and camping, when new, we removed the second rear facing seat, the upstairs folding bed panel and pad, the slide out cooler and the trim piece below the rear bench seat and have those parts for the new owner.
Automatic, front wheel drive, 2.8L V6
AC works great
Airbags for driver and passenger
Power door locks
CD player/radio with remote control
Tow hitch with 2” receiver
Bug screen for back door
Front screen curtains and white windshield cover
Original curtains that can completely block all sides of the van providing privacy and shade
Folding table between bench seat and rear facing seat
Auxillary battery under driver seat powers cooler and can be used to jump start main battery. Both can be solar charged
Additional DC outlet from aux. battery
Tires and batteries are all about two years old and are in excellent condition
New swivel passenger seat
We now have retired and are spending long winters camping in Florida and have purchased an Aliner and so we are not using the VW like we used to. It has been a very difficult decision to sell, but we are trying to reduce our fleet. Also selling a 1998 Mercedes 230 SLK (4 cyl. Kompressor retractible hard top) if anyone is interested.
