Faulty climate control in Caddy
There would have been a statutory warranty that would have applied if you bought it from a licensed dealer, but it would have expired a couple of months ago. Added to that you don't know that it wasn't working when you bought it. You really don't have any comeback now.
Avensis good pick for a family car?
The Avenso Versis is a good all-rounder in the people-mover class. Other people-movers you could consider are the Honda Odyssey, Kia Grand Carnival, or VW Caddy Life, you could consider SUVs like the Ford Territory or Nissan Dualis.
Compensation for Caddy engine replacement?
VW has already come to the party by covering 70 percent of the repairs. That's on a car that is six years old and well out of warranty. I don't think you've got much of a case for more than you've already received.
VW Caddy for camping?
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.
Abnormal tyre wear on VW Caddy
It is not normal for tyres to scallop, on the Caddy or any other vehicle. To find they are scalloped at the first service is most unusual and you would have to think there is something amiss with the car or tyres. If the tyres have been correctly inflated you would have to suspect there was something wrong with the alignment of the car. Have it checked by an independent suspension specialist to get an unbiased opinion.
