VOLKSWAGEN KOMBI Used Car Review

Pros

Cons

  • 1960s and 1970s models are truly iconic and loaded with character
  • Ride comfort of older models
  • Larger, multi-seat interiors of modern-day Kombis
  • 2006 Kombi Beach's clever storage, front swivel seats and bed system
  • Safety and reliability of earlier models not a patch on later versions
  • Early models not cheap - and split-screen versions will cost you a motza
  • 2006 Kombi Beach accommodated only four occupants
  • Next-generation Kombi not due till 2022 (and will be electric)

It’s time for Olive 🚌 the Byron Music Kombi to find a new home! A regrettable sale, Olive has served me and my business very well for over 5 years but for a few reasons I have decided to move her on. Olive is a 1975 Panel Van (stamped 74B). I purchased it from a young lady in 2015, prior to that was owned by Stokers VW Byron Bay, whom have always serviced and kept her running since! I have used it on my short commutes to work and at events where she is always a show stopper! Olive is used to

Look at this beauty. Purchased in Byron Bay because well who wouldn't? Now in Melbourne but willing to arrange shipping Australia wide. Considered the most amazing surfy vehicle of all time, this bad boy still has roof racks and has been reasonably well restored but would still make a great project car if so sort. New custom-made upholstery throughout. Clean engine. Lots of mechanical restorations - runs well for an old girl. Much loved but time to move on. Roof Racks still on :-

WHAT TO LOOK OUT FOR: VOLKSWAGEN KOMBI (2005-2008)

Everybody wants a VW Kombi. Or so it seems. But the really early cars are now the realm of the hard-core enthusiasts who need to be on their toes to keep these antiques running.

Which means, that if you must have a Kombi to actually use, then the later (T5) variants are the ones to go for.

A much more modern design, these vehicles were not without their faults, starting with everything electrical.

Make sure you include the keyless locking in your inspection as a new key can cost plenty by the time it has been cut and coded to the car.

Check for oil leaks from the engine and where it meets the transmission and take a close look at the condition of all the belts and hoses under the bonnet. The oil on the dipstick should be clean and clear and not black and thick.

Make sure you check the condition of the tyres, too, as plenty of Kombi owners over the years have confused the legend of VW reliability with the reality of modern motoring.
