Poor back up service

published

I had 1st gen Crafter for 6 years with over 240,000Ks no real issues and was very happy, then i purchased 2nd gen Crafter which I've had now for 18 months done 66,000ks and the drivers seat has split on the side lumber and VW say this is wear and tear and wont cover it under warranty, with my 1st crafter with 240,000ks had no wear on the seats, this is very disappointing, also got badly grinding brakes which is from day 1, VW can't find out why, had engine go in to safe mode they can't find out why just reset everything and wait for it happen again which cost me money when the van is off the road. side door runner come loose which i fixed myself as it would be in the garage all day if i took it to VW.
VERY DISAPPOINTING VAN

Purchased in for $72,000.

LWB VW Crafter 410nm 8speed auto bi-turbo

published

Having had company vw lwb &mwb LT35s since 1999 in UK and the only major issue I’ve had till now was a snap leaf spring apart from any normal wear n tear.
Now have a new 2019 crafter fwd. plenty of power and handles great on the road.
The cons is being fwd made it hard to drive up the gravel road than rwd. Wouldn’t swap for any other vans especially a Toyota hiace for poor payload and tow rating,
