The worst van I have ever owned

published

Using this vehicle for business. At 10,000 kms the air conditioner has failed, the windscreen washers don’t work, the back tray is failing, the after sales service is absolutely horrendous. The reverse camera goes to its lowest light setting every single time the vehicle starts.
8 weeks after reporting all the issues, they have addressed only 1. And it has been a nightmare. Won’t even answer emails.
Worst vehicle I have ever owned period.

Purchased in for $31,000.

Really poor quality

published

Have had an ldv v80 for 5years. But odo currently only 120k. Gear box failed at 60k and company did everything to avoid paying. Went to fair trading but although supportive couldn't waste any more time or money. A year later driving over raised pedestrian crossing the engine dropped out! Now the radiator has gone. Rust is awful.
There is no point selling it now. It has been so disappointing. We have quite a few vans in our business and was lured by the price but its never worth it.

I bought this Van last year from Ferntree gully ldv dealer.

published

I bought this Van last year from Ferntree gully ldv dealer. Both LDv Australia and dealer are terrible company. Their products and services are not for Australia. They are doing just robbery in this country. One year 4 time major breakdown, parts are not available, waiting period of service long, not qualified technicians and their communication is not satisfactory. If you have plan to go for LDv please think 1000 times. Otherwise you will cry like me. This time breakdown the dealer has seen my van after 1 week and still don't know when they will return my van.

Purchased in at Ldv Ferntree gully for $32,000.

Great van for the money

published

We own a 2015 short wheel base 5 speed manual v 80 van in our painting and decorating business . You read so many negative story’s about the v80 but with our experience we have never had any major problems with our v80 in the whole time we have owned our van . Just normal maintenance serviced very 10 thousand kms at a independent mechanic. The v80 is no any extra cost to run or maintain Or has no more problems then our 2018 ford transit custom we have in our business as well . I would highly recommend you consider a v80 . It’s budget motoring for your business. I am also not getting any money for writing this review. One happy v80 owner!!

The brake pads and disc rotor runs out every 40k's. Very disappointed with the vehicle. The service of this vehicle is too expensive. The service people write invoice us of the duties they dont perform.

$30000 junk, hopeless customer service

published

The worst service and product ever and absolute joke. The vehicle slid down on angled driveway (not steep at all) with hand brake on and selecting correct gear.

Put the car in service for check and their investigation was pushing the car with 4 people. They claimed the vehicle is perfectly safe to drive.

A few days later the car slid down on driveway. Called them up and were told that now they would get 10 people to push it on their flat surface. There was no apologies at all but humiliating responses.

Now we are discussing the matters with our lawyer, as the sell junk to customer but no willingness to recover.

Purchased in at Newspot adelaide for $33,000.
