If I had to replace the van now I would buy exactly the same van with the same options. There isn't anything else on the market I'd prefer. Some more comfortable seats would be welcome though.
Mine is the Caddy TDI manual van. I've had it for a year and love it (all except the cons below). It is very economical to run, has heaps of space for my needs, looks great with my business signage and it is the only van on the market with completely smooth sides (I went for a metallic charcoal colour with body coloured bumpers and mirrors), is relat...
I have just traded my 2006 1.9 Caddy Life and feels good to have it gone. When traded it needed about another $4,000.00 of repairs – air conditioning didn’t work (2nd time) rear brakes, rear shock absorbers & CV joints all needed fixing and I had just spent $2,500.00 fixing the clutch (and that was the cheap single plate one) at 120,000km. Recently fixed the clutch on a Toyota (with 210,000km) for $330.00. Paint, yes paint, was coming off radio buttons, power window buttons, and passenger and drivers arm rests.

Great small car, perfect for lugging the kids around and driving to work and back etc. Due to the 1.9l size of the engine, it is not powerful enough for overtaking etc on country roads, you need to plan ahead. Finish quality is very good, and so it should be from VW. My wife loves the car, I drive it all day due to my job, and travel very long distances, no real problems to speak of.
I have the 7 seat caddy Life Diesel with DSG transmission. Love the turning circle, turns so tight that parking is not a problem. Love the fact that it can seat 7 ...
