    10 years ownership... Let the trouble begin

    published

    Being a tradie, this van gets a beating. Has been reliable till now. The dam bulb out light on dash is constantly on with all bulbs working, starter motor recently replaced, clutch recently replaced, turbo diaphragm replaced, glow plugs replaced, left hand side ball joint replaced, front and rear brakes pads replaced and new battery. After 10 years and bought brand new with 215,000km on the clock now with constant start stop its been a great overall.
    Steer away from the DSG and petrol models. You need to maintain these vans and they will give you years of trouble free motoring

    I bought my Vw caddy 2010 Tdi 3 years ago, no problems thus far not sure if it's because I have 1.9 diesel motor or not, but I think the 1.6 petrol is the problem. Would like to hear more comments from the diesel owners to what problems to look out for cheers about the clutch some people just don't know how to drive manual, vow is very touchy. Cheers

    Recurring problem with fuel injectors

    published

    I have just paid $1337 to replace yet another fuel injector in my disabled son's 2010 modified VW Caddy. One injector had to be replaced Feb 2013, another in July 2013, both under warranty. A request to the VW Service Centre to replace remaining injectors because of an obvious problem was refused. My question: When will the fourth injector fail? Another $1337 that a disability pensioner cannot afford? More frightening - What if this occurs on the Bruce Highway on a hot summer's day? My son has severe physical disabilities, heat exposure brings on seizures, and he is stuck on the side of the road with no means of transport except an ambulance!!!! Perhaps a letter to VW Head Office?

    I have had a similar problem with my VW Caddy 2010

    published

    Mine has only done 33,000 klms and has gone into limp mode 4 times in the last year. Ours is a modified disabled vehicle. The service centre said is was fuel injector problems and they even replaced the engine ecu worth $3000 (but under warranty) thinking it could have been sending false fuel injector messages. This last time has happened since then. I am also very concerned it could cause a major accident esp on the freeway. I do 10,000 klms per year. What is causing this and how can it be fixed permanently?

    Caddy 2006 1.9 TDi

    published

    Great to drive and excellent fuel economy when it is on the road. However, it is not on the road long enough between expensive breakdowns / repairs. Eight years old with 260000km and I'm over it. I also have a Hiace with 500000km & going strong. Should've bought another one.

    First Caddy 2006 TDI manual traded in 2009 Did have problem with gear box auto, replaced under warranty, I was Given replacement car while work was being done can't fault Central Coast Motor Group. Had Second Caddy TDI Auto for 120,000km Great to drive long distances. New 2014 Caddy has Coarse Control, and Bluetooth.
    This should just about make it perfect.
    All car can have problems some more then others I guess I was lucky. Its how you get looked after at the time is what's important.

    2006 VW Caddy

    published

    I bought the VW Caddy 1.9 L TDI with DSG in February 2007.
    At this stage I have done 61,000 Km, mostly using Biodiesel.
    The van has been excellent so far. It is great to drive, I love the DSG.
    Fuel economy is brilliant at 6.2 L/100 Km!
    I found the VW part cost high and services expensive.
    The VW Caddy Van is great to drive and has excellent fuel economy.

    Disappointing VW

    published

    I was a pretty happy owner for the first few years.. Proud. even after the initial shock of the overpriced servicing.. which I accepted as part of the price of owning a brand new vehicle.. my first . after an assortment of minor malfunctions from the body through to electrical ( after warranty ) then the gear box goes on a four year old VW vehicle . $6600 later .. not so proud.. as it turns out a common problem. Disappointed
    .
    Great sized small van.. fuel efficient.. originally inexpensive.
    Overpriced servicing.. terrible dealer service.. Poor quality vehicle in the end.

    Caddy Falls Short

    published

    Just paid $1860.00 for a 180,000 service do I need to say anymore ! I have had to many things go wrong to mention over the 4 years bought new and serviced at V W dealer. Would not recommend to anyone for business use. Will buy Hyundai I Load and get 5 year warranty fixed price servicing and unlimited Klm.
    Fuel economy was good about 6.5 ltrs per 100km
    Parts and servicing to expensive. If your getting it done cheaper it probably not being done properly

    Seeking all persons with a problem

    published

    We have had our Caddy for just over three years now and it has done 130 000kms. Apparently the Gearbox has gone, VW gets to decide if they repair or replace it. I think not. We got from a good dealer but as now the Dealearship is with the dodgy brothers. Just wanted to hear from anybody else with similar problems.
    Loved it before this, but $ 8500 gear box @ 130 000k's Don't like anymore.
