    A week ago we took delivery of a 2008 (08) Caddy Maxi 2.0 TDI 140 very very very nice. Brought from a VW van centre. We swapped our 07 Transporter Kombi for it.

    I noticed it seamed to hesitate at certian revs the other day and so did dad.

    It was due to go back today to be checked out but the engine light came on befroe we got chance. So we have had to call VW assistance....

    The engineer has been and said the van is been involved in a font end smash and has been really badly repaired!!!! So now got to speak to the dealer and try and sort it out dad is understandably really angrey as we have been driving round in it and brought it understanding that it was a ex VW van i'e' used by VW themselves. Will let you know the outcome

    That's hardly a ringing endorsement for the dealer!

    My friend has an ex-VW dealer Transporter, it used to be their parts van. Apparently, (not sure if this is all dealers or just the one he bought it from) they get a new parts van every 6 months and then sell the old one on.

    We heard off the garage yesterday they have said that the van as never been in a accident or been repaired, they have said that the diffent colours under the bonnet (some parts are silver rather then black etc) are due to the van being one of the first off the line and think it was used by VW in publicity shots etc hench they tarted up under the bonnet. They are waiting for VW to confirm it.

    I guess that the VW assitence guy wouldn't have known this so assumed it had been repaired

    So he assumed that it had been badly repaired because it had different colour parts or was there more to it than that?

    Basically yes that and there was still masking tape under the head light.

    In some ways I hope this is right but will be annoyed as t has cuased undue stress and worry for dad who has enough on his plate!
