Vivaro (2001 - present)

FREE guide exposes faults on this van!

Before you buy a Vauxhall Vivaro (2001 - present) there are 11 common faults or wear items that you should check for. Our research amongst the experts that work on this specific model everyday, has identified:

  • 5 engine check(s) to make
  • 3 interior item(s) that you need to ensure work
  • 2 wear item(s) to spot on the suspension
  • 0 area(s) on the bodywork to inspect
  • 1 official recall(s) that should have been completed

Our three-stage process makes it easy (even if you know nothing about vans) to spot these potential problems. For each fault we tell you:

  1. What to look for (this is written so that it is easy to understand even if you know nothing about vans)
  2. What it means if you find the fault
  3. What to do (here we give you the streetwise options)

Here is just one example check for the Vauxhall Vivaro (2001 - present):

What to look for
Check that the engine starts from cold and warm. Be prepared that the van could cut-out during the test drive if it has starting problems.

What it means (if you find this fault)
If the engine won't start just from cold the problem may be the glow plugs. If the engine has an intermittent starting problem and cuts out the fuel pump is usually the cause. Otherwise, poor starting at all times is usually worn injectors. (This check continues in the guide where there is more space).

What to do (your options)
Have the van inspected. Glow plugs will cost £500, Injectors £1,000 and a fuel pump £2,000.

We reveal the most expensive mistake van buyers make!

  Most van buyers are so worried about avoiding technical problems, they totally overlook the biggest rip-off of all!

Most insurance companies won’t tell you this, but they charge you less money in your first year with them, to encourage you to switch your insurance.

They know most people won’t bother switching in a year’s time, so they slowly ‘claw back’ the money with annual increases. If you don’t change your insurance provider every year you will be wasting hundreds of pounds!

We know it’s a hassle, so we make it really quick and easy for you to check the best offers around! As you will see below…
