Overview

"Great Family Car"

Exterior and Interior

Classic VW styling makes this car a must have vehicle, the functions inside make it versatile for the family. Electric sliding doors makes it so easy to pile the kids or pets or both in. Being able to turn the seats around and slide up and down the van means boot space is never an issue, even with all seats taken.

Performance and Economy

Definitely worth spending a couple of hundred in performance/economy upgrades, makes this van drive like a car and with six speed box just gives you great fuel economy for this type of vehicle, easily returning 38-40 combined cycle.

Like to Drive

Easily the best 7 seater I have ever driven and with 200 bhp is fun too. This handles like a car and feels so safe when transporting valuable (or at least expensive) passengers! My wife loves driving this as has great visibility and is no problem maneuvering as has very good steering lock. <

Faults and Repairs

Had a problem with the drive shaft but is relatively inexpensive to replace. The leather has worn a little but is still leather and not bothered as is only my rear that sits on it!
