Review for VW Transporter by Install (Ceilings And Partitions) Ltd
14th 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

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.

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

22nd 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.

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

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.

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.

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 .

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.

15th 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)

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 & Heating
24th 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.

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

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
