Review for Vauxhall Vivaro by DAJ
27th March 2021

If you like back pain this is the one for you.
I’ve had one on hire for a few weeks and it left a lot to be desired. The seats adjustability didn’t help with a comfortable seating position at all.
The cab is a decent size but never felt comfortable. Connectivity via the Bluetooth was decent, sound quality average.
Body feels tinny and little noise suppression from the usual knocks and bangs from the panel van.

Having just upgraded to a 2015 Model I am pleased with it but have to say the older version is more solid built and mirrors are confusing with blind spots too close but wide angle mirror on sun visor is amazing

Good van with plenty storage space. If you don't like pipe tubes definitely get the model with bulkhead hatch. Cigarette lighter port in the rear by back doors is great to charge batteries on the go with a inverter. Very solid van that you can get for a good price.

Had my second hand vauxhall van for 3 years now and I have een very happy with it. I'm now looking at getting another one but maybe a LWB one instead. Very reliable and very comfortable to drive, and plenty of room inside.

Used my trusted Ford transit 260 short wheel base for 10 years with only having to change brake pads and a battery. Bough my Vauxhall Vivaro 2 years ago. Changed brake pads twice and had by a new battery for £150. But other than that it has been a pleasure to drive so much more comfortable than the old transit. More like driving a passenger vehicle. Very happy with it and much more reasonably priced to the Ford

I’d say it’s very spacious in the cab and also in the loading bay but it’s lacks premium feel like you see in the Ford transit sport, also it’s not a powerful in my opinion

Had a 17 plate LWB sportive for around 6 months now. It has all the toys like traction and cruise control, and has bags of space to fit everything inside. Although I've added roof bars just incase, all my ladders and pipe tubes that would normally go on the roof are fitted inside. Enough power to lug all your tools and parts around, and good on fuel averaging at around 35mpg when loaded up.

Just taken delivery of a 70 plate vivaro. Happy with it although at 6ft 4in it's a bit tight in the cabin. Got the 1.5 and really impressed. Getting over 40mpg on all journeys. Access and the extended section through the bulkhead is handy. Happy so far.

First note is I have a 2003 vivaro and it has been brilliant. Fuel economy is perfect for a van and it holds weight brilliantly with tool boxes and everything else in the back. For the cheap price of an old vivaro I’d always recommend

Absolutely fantastic vehicle, just bought one recently. Drives like a car, but with the torque of a decent van. Plenty space in back for shelving and a roof rack system finishes off a really good workhorse.

I love my Vivaro. The long wheelbase version I have lets me put 8' lengths in the back and I get 16' lengths my roof rack and everything in between. It's just like driving a car on the road and just as comfortable. Will definitely stick with Vauxhall for my next van.

We have had 2 of these Van's. One has been scrapped after nearly 5k of repairs. injectors failed ceasing in the head (common problem with these vans that I wasnt aware of and apparently still is on the brand new models). turbo blew. crankshaft seal leaked into bell housing causing whole clutch needing to be changed. final straw was gearbox collapsed and took out the timing chain. These were the big problems too many others to list.

We have just invested in 2 of these and I have to say I’m somewhat disappointed, my back and backside aches after driving every day, the seats are not comfy at all, we are stuck with these for a couple of years now but I wish I had read he reviews first, cheapish to run, better on long runs then short, quick vans, diesel is good if you drive it like you have not stole it lol, I would only rate these vans 3 to 4 star

I have the Swb Sportive and have had it from new and for nearly 2 years. I do think it is a good van but could do with having a bit more spec. The only issue I have notice is the clutch pedal sometimes doesn't come all the way up.

I’ve got the basic long wheel base model
It’s not the powerful van but it’s good enough but the real plus it’s very economical the eco button works!
Great road handling, very comfortable ride
This is a real rival for the Ford Custom in my book the Vivaro is the winner

It’s a pretty good van for the money, there is a few little problem I have found, mobile phone keeps disconnecting from Bluetooth, im having to forget the phone and then reconnect it.
Stop start, if you are to quick putting it in gear the van gets confused.
Cruse control sometimes to go over the speed that you set it to.
Side door bolts keep coming lose.

I have a 63 plate crew cab. Working well as used for work and as a kid transportation device. Best of both worlds.

Bonnet alarm sensor gets water in it and causes alarm to go off. Problem with heater lights.
