What to Look Out for in a Volkswagen Transporter

Thankfully, the Transporter has earned a reputation for being a durable, reliable motor. This has led to fewer faults than you would expect in general when buying a used van. That said, there are a few things you should do when checking out your next car.

Ensure that the car has had a full service history and as few owners as possible. If your Volkswagen Transporter has frequently changed hands it could be possible that new owners are selling it as soon as they become aware of problems.

Visually inspect the van to look for issues of poor workmanship or potential costs down the line. Whilst doing this you can also check the suspension by pushing down on the bumper and watch how many times the car bounces, if it does it more than 2-3 times this could indicate an issue.
