1998 Volkswagen Caravelle GL 2.4 D

Summary:

A great lovable family car, not a sports car

Faults:

New exhaust at 60k

Rear heater unit failed at 50k

New glow plugs at 40k.

General Comments:

Great size and fuel economy, Fantastic for going on holiday with 4 kids and loads of luggage, very reliable and comfortable with excellent seating position. What I don't like: as non-turbo diesel it has slow acceleration and poor hill climbing ability (but cruises quite well at 70mph once gets going), quite noisy at speed. Looking forward to getting the new generation.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
