Volkswagen Crafter (2006–2017)

What's good

Impressively refined and comfortable to drive.

High quality interior.

2.0 TDI common rail diesel is one of the best van engines around.

What's bad

Following worldwide recall of 2.6 million vehicles due to crystalline deposits in the synthetic oil in seven-speed DSGs affecting the Mechatronics units causing the fuses to blow, Volkswagen is recalling 30,000 UK market vans and LCVs fitted with seven-speed DSG to change the oil in them from synthetic to mineral.
