    20in rims on T6.1, mechanical probs, VW warranty

    Hi all, I have a new T6.1 coming in the next couple of weeks. My VW dealer told me yesterday that if I put 20in rims on it and that leads to any mechanical issue, my warranty will be void. Has anyone had any mechanical probs attributed to running plus sized wheels?

    I called VW as my 3 year warranty is about to expire and I have had problems with the Moll battery. Was told as they couldn’t look at it for another month it would not be covered by warranty that remained as they wouldn’t be able to invoice VW within the remaining warranty! Hence a 3 year...

    Warranty claims after camper conversion

    just wondering if anyone has had any issues with Vw if claiming under warranty, e.g on the engine or running gear after they have had a custom camper conversion? Are Vw ok with it or does making the conversion make the warranty exempt

    New Transporter ordered. T32 4motion Kombi. Was advised by dealer that any increase in wheel size above 18” would invalidate the warranty. Is this right? secondly-was thinking about 18” alloys (20” look good but 18” is fine for me). Would I need to change the suspension set up and if so -How...

    What does extended warranty cover?

    Has anyone bothered with an extended warranty? I don't normally bother but I've been quoted £329 for an additional 24 months with a mileage limit of 80000 miles. Seems like reasonable value for the peace of mind. Thoughts anyone??????? MD

    Warranty only 2 years

    I bought my 2017 T6 in December In the UK and imported it to Ireland. Reason being, was that I just couldn’t find a highline DSG here (well found one but it was a lot dearer than the ones in the UK at the time). In many cases it’s quite common in Ireland to be attracted to the UK market. Main...
