Experiences with Volkswagen T5?


Hi everyone

I found a nice and affordable T5.

  • 2013 first reg.
  • 84kW Diesel
  • manual transmission
  • 71.000 km
  • 1968m3

My question: Do you have any feedback on this or bad experiences with this Model? I just hear that older Volkswagen models could have a lot of repairs when the get older.
Thank you for all your help - I’m a girl and not sure if to buy or not :wink:




Take a mechanic with you to check it out.

Hi there!
I used the Carly Car Diagnostic and it worked out perfectly.
I recommend it to everyone who is not tech-savvy as I am :wink:

I’m not tech savvy. I can tell a car from a truck and an automatic transmission from a manual one! (I can’t even drive a manual vehicle!) I appreciate your suggestion because that’s a great way to learn about any electronic problems with a vehicle. I’m going to check these devices out and add them to my van life list.

Best wishes on your purchase and your van life! I hope you’ll post again to keep us updated! I would be very interested to learn how it’s going!
