I would avoid this as a family car

Definitely not worth the cost .
Can be great as low use vehicle but they do come with a lot of problems when used on a regular basis . Although ours is new and alot covered by warranty it’s a never ending story of it having to be in for repair for different things from small to large . If you are considering this for a business use . DO NOT do as you will be with out it most the time between services and problem fixing .

A huge regret in getting and also will not purchase a VW now based on the vehicle experience and the service quality .

Will now look to get rid of this as it’s become to time costly as well as service difficulties and poor quality of service from VW. Show details

Love the Multivan except for

(a) Lower Control Arm Bushes causing excess tyre wear & (b) Can't open the Tailgate with a Trailer on Towbar!Bizarre - these are both design issues. Tyre replacement centres say Volks wagen is aware of movement under braking which caused excess tyre wear but they deny it....... I've seen it happen> you get approx 5cm - 10cm of backward wheel movement under braking which rapidly damages tyres. Fix It! Show details

Never own another VW's/Audi again, I am done with the brand

Had few VWs for last 10 years, from Golf TDI, R32,R36, Gti,Tiguan, Touareg ,T5.1. They all money pit, everything could goes wrong on all Volkswagen. Engine oil leaks rattling noise(weak oil pump), timing chain issues, waterpump issues, gateway module issues, ignition barrel stuck, central locking malfunction, window regulator, DPF Issues, EGR cooler using coolant, diesel injectors leaks, famously gearbox issues; VW S problems just like a list of features on a sales brouches; too much to go on the list. VAGs had well contributed to tow truck industries.  Show details

Perfect family car

Excellent 7 seater with full option to adjust and rearrange the seating inside the cabin. The rear seats can be flatten to become a day bed. The kids love it as the middle seats swivel around with child booster seat raise as an option. I wish it has more than 1 USB output as there are so many potential location to add USB outlet instead of cigarette plug outlet. Overall I am one happy customer as I have owned Tiguan 2012 until now without any major repair or faults. Show details

Not fit for purpose design

The real issues with the Multivan is they have a practical shape and suit a large family but all of the electrical and mechanical systems are flawed. The engine has poor quality seals and will constantly leak from the rear main and camshaft cover plates the only way to fix it is to remove the gearbox, good luck finding a decent mechanical dealership that has the skills to fix the leaks. The gearbox has a genuine compatibility issue with the engine management system and will not last and will need to be rebuilt by an Automatic specialist and rebuilt based on the fact that if you get another 100,00 km for around a $ 5K rebuild you have done well,
Overall Volkswagen should get out of the Industry and take up golf Show details

Modified for c6 quadriplegic

The work done to this vehicle was only possible due to how convenient the VW is.
With $110,000 in modifications onto a $50,000 van, words can not describe the ease of the process.
It is by far the MOST modifiable vehicle on the market, and I had searched high and low! Show details

Best ever bought so far

Use it for daily commuting . Excellant fuel economy.A pleasure to drive. Its not a sports car so pickup is slow( give the size). Cruze control drops the fuel consumption further . I would love to buy another( but they are not cheap), but from different dealer . Coasting feature is nice for saving fuel but breaking gives a tiny jerk. Missing is cup holder for middle seat which is quiet a pain. Having a window in back door is cool idea but should be electrical as kids cant open or close( sometimes even adults)

Versatile but

Great people mover with plenty of power for overtaking. Service issues +++ which was disappointing . Automatic doors were an issue (grinding noises) only fixed after many services with agent. Transmission failed recently after many ‘discussions’ with the agent (grinding noises with gear changes throughout the warranty period)- took it elsewhere. Still love it but would a buy another??

Absolutely love it

We got out 2016 plated VW Multi van June 2017

It has been the best purchase we ever made. We originally got it as my husband is a furniture maker so for work and future family.

So versatile with the different combinations of seating arrangements, taking them in and out and lying them completely flat. It has been so useful in moving furniture, buying big items etc.

We have since had a baby and it is fantastic I can fit everything in pram, bag, accessories and still have room and access to use all 7 seats. So easy to gey bubs in and out. The sliding doors make tight car spots easy.

We absolutely love it

I really wonder if any Volkswagen dealer is keen to reply my request and interest for a Multivan purchase. I requested a call back from Volkswagen Brookvale some days ago via the Volkswagen web page, but they seem not to bother at all in replying.
