Volkswagen Caddy 2008 Q&As
Check out real-world situations relating to the Volkswagen Caddy 2008 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
Fix the caddy problem
IT'S unusual to have the rear brakes wearing out before the front, which do most of the stopping work, so I'd first be making sure the brake system is functioning correctly. If it is, there is good reason to pressure VW to replace the worn components under warranty, and you're correct that all manufacturers, carmakers and others, have a duty to provide a product that is fit for the purpose it's being sold for.Show more
Hitting the brakes fast
IT'S not unusual for cars that come from Europe. They tend to wear out their brakes at a much faster rate. Ask the dealer to show you the measurements they take to demonstrate they really are worn out.Show more
Caddy stacks up
IT DEPENDS on the size of van you need to accommodate your ``things''. If you can get away with a small van, go for a VW Caddy, which is based on the Golf and drives like one. You can buy the Caddy with a diesel engine, which will cut your running bills, and you will find it a most comfortable van to travel in. If the Caddy is too small for your needs go for a larger European van, such as a VW Transporter, Mercedes-Benz Vito or Renault Traffic. All are good to drive, comfortable and, with diesel engines, economical to run.Show more
