Most are reliable, but make some checks

Mechanically speaking, the Transporter T5 is relatively robust, with the biggest issues being based around the dual-mass flywheel. It’s a common fault and clues to its demise are usually found in a loud rattling noise from the engine.

It might feel like a minor issue behind the wheel - a small misfire or slight judder - but ignore any unusual noises or vibrations at your peril. Catch it before it fails completely and you're looking at a bill of around £800, though if it’s disintegrated then it’ll need a bit more work - and money - to rectify.
