Volkswagen Transporter 2005 Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Volkswagen Transporter here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Delayed gears on VW Transporter

    Despite the finding that all was well on the diagnostic check I   would suggest the auto could be in need of a service. The computer,   after all, can't assess the quality of the shifts. Changing the oil   was a good first move, even though it hasn't proven to be the fix. As   for the warranty you would have to read it to check what it covers   and what it doesn't.

    IT'S really too early to speculate on the reliability of the present-model vans. I would be surprised if you needed a van as big as the Sprinter or Ducato to transport your 13-year-old daughter. I would take a look at the Vito, Transporter and Trafic before the Transit. The latter has a pretty ordinary reputation for reliability. Have a talk to the people at Capital Special Vehicles, who specialise in doing the conversions.
