2015 Vauxhall Combo Van CDTi 1.3 turbo diesel from UK and Ireland
Good modern van, but will it last?
Rough idle, fixed under warranty. Van was an ex-demonstrator so wasn't perfect.
As a works van it has had a lot of use over the last year or so, and generally has held up OK. To drive the van feels OK handling wise, acceleration could be better though, but it is only a 1.3, try a bigger engine if you carry heavy loads.
Love the fact there are sliding doors on both dies, normally most vans would have one side door only. Makes it very practical. Comfort level is good and driving position is OK, however there are a blind spots that take getting used to like most vans - probably because I'm used to driving cars. The interior feels cheap if I'm honest and the gear change already feels loose, but maybe it's meant to be that way, it was like that from new.
Overall a decent little van that gets the job done, my only concern is will it last for many years? So far so good, but a mate of mine has a 1996 Combo van and it's still going. It has had an easier life though and was used privately, not as a works van, where as unfortunately most vans like this have a hard life ahead of them.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
