Inspections are Important
Vanagons are 30-years-old. With age and miles comes wear on the mechanical components and systems that you rely on to safely keep you on the road without any inconvenient hiccups. If you are considering purchasing a Vanagon or reviving your van from hibernation, it is wise to get an inspection. Remember – not every repair shop across the states are knowledgeable about your van and you don’t want to be stuck in a small town in the middle of the country without support.
If the Vanagon you are considering purchasing is not near VanGo, find another VW Vanagon shop near the van’s location. If you cannot find a van shop, find a VW specialty shop.
