Volkswagen Transporter 2010 Q&As
Check out real-world situations relating to the Volkswagen Transporter here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
VW Transporter can't handle weight
I would start by discussing your problem with your dealer and request the help of VW’s commercial vehicles experts to come up with a solution. But it seems as though you have bought the wrong vehicle, and maybe need to move up to a Crafter to get the load carrying capacity for the job at hand.
Ask Smithy Xtra T5 auto issues
You didn’t tell us how many kays your T5 had done prior to the rebuild, but because you used the extended warranty I can assume the factory warranty had expired. VW, like all carmakers, will refuse to cover any car that has been worked on outside the dealer network, which is understandable given they have no control over the quality of that work or the competence of the person doing it. It’s perhaps also worth considering having the auto serviced once it’s clocked up 100,000 km-plus; a change of oil can work wonders for the life of an auto trans.
