Do you consider the VW Caddy to be a good buy? I'm considering one for a solo trip around Australia. There's enough room in the back of a standard length Caddy to roll out a swag, and a lift-up tailgate is a handy option. Is the lack of dealerships a concern? I'm planning on taking along a few servicing items.
The Caddy is based on the Golf, so it drives and handles much like a passenger car. That makes it a much better vehicle than one of the larger commercial vans, which can be unpleasant things to drive. There’s no shortage of VW dealerships around the country, you’ll find them in the main towns all along your route, and most mechanics would be able to sort out any problems you might encounter.
