  • Relatively smart cabin for a van
  • Comfortable and easy to drive - plus rare AWD option
  • Strong and efficient diesels
  • Diverse range of models to suit varying needs
  • Exterior design is rather bland
  • DSG auto gearbox is not always responsive or smooth around town
  • Older T5 model only a 4-star crash rating
  • Older T5 not as well equipped as latest T6 (2015 onwards)

2004 Volkswagen Kombi 5 Sp Manual Van

  • 330037 km

Currently selling as is, $2000 ONO. Car is not in great shape, with the major issues being a knock in the engine, a broken window, a missing head rest, and it is a bit dirty. It has been sitting for approx. 7 months now, as I was under the impression that it was not working, however after another look by a friend of mine, it is now firing and moving just fine. In the last three years it has had the distributor cap, gear bushings, and a major clutch issue fixed. The rego has also expired

SIMILAR MODELS TO VOLKSWAGEN TRANSPORTER

WHAT TO LOOK OUT FOR: VOLKSWAGEN TRANSPORTER (2004 to 2015)

Plenty of Transporters were bought by fleets or companies and worked hard from day one.

So check the service history to see what's gone wrong in the past and then check that the vehicle hasn't suffered skipped services. Be wary of an example with a big tow-hitch or one that has dented and mangled bodywork in the load area.

Some turbo-diesel versions were susceptible to fractures in the fuel lines due to vibration, but we reckon the affected cars would have showed up by now.

Make sure you check the operation of all the electrical gear and the central locking to ensure that the body computer is working properly. Try to obtain both ignition keys for the Transporter on purchase, too, as they're expensive to replace and need to be coded to the car. That's not exclusive to VWs, but it's worth remembering.
