Volkswagen Transporter 2007 Problems
No car is perfect, but we've gathered everything relating to the Volkswagen Transporter 2007 reliability here to help you decide if it's a smart buy.
Save the heartache
THE MB100 was built by SsangYong when Mercedes-Benz was getting up close and personal with the South Korean carmaker. It had a Benz badge, but it wasn't of the same quality as a real Benz. I wouldn't like to split the Vito and Transporter. They're both very good vans. If you can stretch your budget a little, you could buy a new Mitsubishi Express and save any heartaches that can sometimes come with a used vehicle. And if you can get away with a smaller van, try a VW Caddy.
SOUNDS like you need a van. The European vans are way ahead of the Japanese rivals in every aspect except price. They can be tricked up with all sorts of accessories that can look very cool. The Vito is worth considering, as are the VW Transporter and the Renault Trafic. If you can get away with a smaller van, look at the VW Caddy. The Japanese vans don't rate highly in crash testing, but the European vans have all the safety systems you'd expect in a passenger car.
Strife with new vw van
I AM not a legal expert so I can't advise on your rights to a new vehicle. I would expect that VW has an obligation to fix the vehicle to your satisfaction, and it seems to have taken care of you by giving you a replacement van meantime. I would think two weeks is long enough to find and fix the problem. Contact VW directly if you're not happy with what the dealer is doing or telling you.
