Review for VW Transporter by Install (Ceilings And Partitions) Ltd14th June 2022
Have driven these for almost a decade now and they're solid vans. The only issue I've got with my current one is the bottom roller on the side door failed, easy fix but a very dependable van. If only it had those modular passenger seats like what Citroen have, could do away with a roof rack then lol
Review for VW Transporter by Bowden Electrical6th February 2022
Although driving a 66 plate, it lacks some build quality. Visor fell off, side door fell off, but very economical on fuel. Engine been great and holds a lot of weight. Comfortable to drive. My last Vito seemed to drive better though.
Review for VW Transporter by PeacockDIY8th March 2021
Absolutely love driving these whenever I get a chance.
The 4motion and dsg auto gearbox make driving a pleasure for these!
I have driven a camper conversion of this for a few months, and all the additional weight in the back doesn’t affect the driving at all
Review for VW Transporter by Pat Hodson Builders Ltd22nd February 2021
I ve had a couple of transporters now opting for the r32 with dsg and few other nice bits on it. The first 1 had issues with paint which was sorted eventually by vw but not without a fair few phone calls. The recent transporter has been faultless. Nice to drive, perfect size for the job and all the creature comforts of a car.
Review for VW Transporter by Globalmain Ltd18th February 2021
Very good reliable van I’ve worked out one of these for many years. I do believe they could have more going on in the cockpit. Be in German they are built to a very high level. I think they overcharge a little bit for these because of the German build but do recommend these vans if you can afford one. Thanks
Review for VW Transporter by Fraser Contracts16th February 2021
I have been driving a t32 version from new on 2016 plate and I have found them to be unreliable and very uncomfortable on longer journeys the in van features on this model are way behind the transit of the same year.
Review for VW Transporter by RWFcapentry21st January 2021
This is the best van on the market for style and practically, drove new and old and they just get better and better so smooth and drove just like a car.
Great size and very useful, very reliable and just unbeatable
Review for VW Transporter by N Bowhay14th October 2020
The most reliable company van I have had over the last 16 years, very comfortable to drive, quiet and very enjoyable to drive. If I ever went back to a van this would be my first choice.
Review for VW Transporter by MB Bespoke Services26th September 2020
Best van on the road, my LWB 140 T5 is 5 years old and covered 240,000 miles , only needed serviceable items and still drives like a 24,000 mile one, testament enough.My 3rd Transporter and not my last ! I know they’re expensive initially but in the long run are the most cost effective, their residual value is high and if a professional image is wanted then the Transporter is the only one to have .
Review for VW Transporter by Ewelectrics23rd May 2020
In my opinion the best van on the market. Amazingly durable. Great power output and so much space.
It’s just simply too nice for a works van. The beautiful thing will end up getting trashed and maybe a dented panel or two from being on sites.
Nevertheless my #1 choice.
Review for VW Transporter by Switching On The Light15th February 2020
I’ve got a T6 Kombi 4Motion which I use for both trade (electrical and general construction) and personal use, claiming mileage on a personally owned vehicle.
The van is solid and reliable. Even with the added complexity of AWD and a DSG gearbox it is hassle free, powerful and flexible. I use it for surfing trips and it ticks all the boxes. I plan to keep for years as it’s the best out there at the moment. My next van will be EV, so will keep until a viable vehicle comes on the market (hopefully VW)
Review for VW Transporter by Marcons Bathroom & Heating14th November 2019
Love my transporter and having it 6 years from new I love everything about it. It’s great for work and I even take it camping and go round Scotland
Review for VW Transporter by Gas Eco Heat26th September 2019
Vw transporters are best vans in my opinion, tough and reliable.
I’ve always had transporters and never had any issues apart from standard wear and tear.
Expensive to buy ,but they hold they resale value !
Definitely recommend Vw Transporters :)
Review for VW Transporter by Clearwater Plumbing & Heating24th September 2019
Had a 19 plate crew cab transporter as a courtesy vehicle whilst my van was in the garage for the week. The van is well made and seems solid enough with all panels fitting together well etc. The van is suffers from road noise more than my transit custom and the interior isn't as nice ie the rear sliding doors of the crew van dont have proper door cards and the roof lining is plastic not fabric. Plenty of cubby holes in the front of the cab for storage. I found the steering a bit too light but I am sure you would get used to it after a while. Fuel economy wise it doesn't touch the custom either the fuel gauge goes down quicker than a thomas cook. It's a bit smaller than the custom too but not by much. All in all it's a nice enough van but I will stick with the ford for practicality, economy and comfort. One plus for it will be that being a VW transporter it will hold its value well and the engine has plenty of poke if needed.
Review for VW Transporter by Hodgson Electrical15th August 2019
I love my VW transporter, the build quality is brilliant, I have the T32 Long wheel base crew cab. I upgraded the wheels to 20inch and added a few extras like side bars and it looks perfect. I would highly recommend to anyone. only downside is the cupholders that are useless then break. reviewed by an Electrician in Wakefield
Review for VW Transporter by Precision Plumbing & Heating26th February 2019
Nice solid vans. Stylish inside and out. Mine had extras such as stop start and dab. Built in hands free is also really handy while on the move. Never had an issue
Review for VW Transporter by D.R. Plumbing & Heating13th December 2018
Been driving mine from new since 2011 and it’s like driving a car! Nice to drive.
Because of the VW brand I thought it would be reliable however it broke down during warranty. It has not been reliable and when they go wrong they are expensive.
Had a good solid 8 years in her but for what I paid I do not believe in my opinion you get the valve for money. Over priced.
Review for VW Transporter by Fitzgerald Electrical & Plumbing Solutions11th December 2018
Just changed from a vivaro to transporter, not as roomy in the cab area and cab storage is at a minimum, but drives great very well built solid van! Bit pricey but they do hold the value if you look after them!
Review for VW Transporter by Ambient design and heating6th December 2018
Great van to use on a daily basis with a lot of comfort while driving. Very easy to drive long distance and is by far an asset to gain work, never knew how folk portrayed a tradesman until now. They really do take what you drive to show them if your any good or not
Review for VW Transporter by M.E.T Electrical Ltd22nd November 2018
Had one for two years when I worked for the council. Oil hungry and had basic frills. Electric windows. That's it.
Maybe the better models are better for oil etc. But the basic model is sparse on the comforts!
Nice to drive and sits well on the road.
Review for VW Transporter by M&M Electrical (South) Ltd10th October 2018
Wouldn’t buy another and if I was given one it would go straight to auction. Used more engine oil than diesel and dealers are useless, they wanted me to keep a diary of engine oil etc, it’s under warranty do one.
Review for VW Transporter by The Boiler Guys22nd December 2017
I love my transporterI have had them for over 20 years, they hold their price well, i have suffered 1 break down in 7 vans, if you service them they just keep going.
Review for VW Transporter by Ickenham Heating Limited20th December 2017
Great van that’s build quality is the best out there. The vans aren’t cheap to the point I could have two transit customs to one transporter. Lovely to drive and you know it will last.
Review for VW Transporter by DMXpressions Ltd12th December 2017
Moved to a Transporter from a Transit Connect and have been happy with it. It's always started in the mornings even at -6! just have a basic model and it's a solid van.
Review for VW Transporter by O'Brien Property Maintenance8th December 2017
Having always had VW caddy I needed a bigger van and knowing how comfortable transporters are to drive I went straight to VW and got the high line and have never looked back fantastic van a pleasure to drive. L
Review for VW Transporter by JJM PLASTERING6th December 2017
I love my vw I can fit absolutely everything for my plastering trade in it plus materials. I struggled with my previous van to fit in plaster boards because of how big they are. My vw can fit 15 boards in it so it’s brilliant not to mention it’s packed full of features and drives beautiful.
Review for VW Transporter by L H Brickwork Ltd17th October 2017
A great built van but expensive in comparison to some of the other manufacturers in terms of what you get. These vans are comfortable and last a long time if serviced well
Review for VW Transporter by Quality Plumbing17th October 2017
Just purchased the new model transporter after having the previous one for 4 years. Fantastic van and excellent customer service.
Review for VW Transporter by Precision Plumbing & Heating15th October 2017
Fantastic van, great to drive, good visibility, responsive engines, excellent build quality.
Not the cheapest van but great residual value
Review for VW Transporter by Summit plumbing and heating ltd12th October 2017
I've owned a volkeswagen transporter t5 for the past 10 years now & wouldn't have anything else now for that reason I've just bought a new t6 & love it
Review for VW Transporter by CLR Security Systems (UK) Ltd9th October 2017
I can’t find anything wrong to talk about Volkswagen, I had 3 years a caddy and was faultless all the through the lease period and now have gone for a Transporter and it’s been almost a year and don’t regret.
If you look for reliability then you should choose a Volkswagen.
Review for VW Transporter by Heat Up Yorkshire13th August 2017
Best van I've driven so far, managed in excess of 400 miles in a day several times and didn't feel like I driven even half of that.
Everything is simple to use and quality is superb. The T6 is more practical I find as a work vehicle for storage and paperwork etc
It is certainly top end of the market price wise but they do hold there money well for when it comes to sell it on.
Review for VW Transporter by M c bathroom and boiler company Ltd24th June 2017
The best van on the market
I have 5 of these now, wouldn't even condider changing to another make, very reliable
Review for VW Transporter by Ethos Heating Ltd10th June 2017
I love my transporter does everything I need it to with lots if equipment like sat nav only down side is it's a bit pricey but they hold their value when you come to sell.
Review for VW Transporter by Garden City Services31st May 2017
Top top van, I have mine converted to a camper and remapped as it's the 104bhp up to 160bhp and is a must for fuel consumption, 2 arms rests is very underrated and so smooth to drive, a pleasure to own
Review for VW Transporter by Spud the Sparky4th May 2017
Brilliant van, need some sort of racking or storage to make use of the load area otherwise you just waste space. Very comfortable to drive fairly good on fuel economy, doesn't seem like there's any security issues unless you leave the doors open. Only downside really is when you need repairs it hits your wallet hard.
Review for VW Transporter by Jake Matthews Property Development and Management2nd May 2017
Brilliant van that does what you need it to, bit on the small side but very efficient. Customer service at our local forecourt is absolutely terrible though.
Review for VW Transporter by Lock'n'Secure Locksmiths2nd May 2017
Great van, good performance and load carrying. Has been problem free even though now at 85k miles. Expensive compared to most other manufacturers but worth it as without the van I don't work and therefore don't earn.

Review for VW Transporter by Rowlinson property maintenance8th December 2016
