How cheap are these Vans?
At a recent meeting with Volkswagen Commercial vehicle Managing Director, Phil Clarke, he announced a limited run of Caddy and Transporter vans.
And yes - any colour you like as long as it's white, but if you're looking for a van for your business then you shouldn't look any further than Volkswagen. And the even better news is that not only are you getting a really great van, but there's also warranted for 3 years and unlimited kilometres. And to define unlimited, think 1,000,000 if you could even do that in three years.
If you'd like more information on either Caddy or Transporter call into Northstar Volkswagen at 322 Anzac Avenue Kippa-Ring on the Redcliffe Peninsula. We're only 15 minutes or so from Brisbane Airport and a leisurely drive down the highway from Noosa, Bundaberg, Maryborough, and a short trip from Nambour, Caloundra, Mooloolaba and Bribie Island. We also get a lot of our customers as FIDO - that's not a dog by the way, that's fly in drive out. With cheap airfares, our customers come in from Cairns, Townsville, Mackay, Mt Isa and even Sydney, Melbourne and as far away as Perth.
We'll happily arrange a drive home registration and you know the best thing about this? The drive home gives you just the best running in you'll ever get. New engines love a long drive to bed everything in and you'll get the best economy you've ever experienced. Alternatively if you're time or distance poor, check us out online at www.northstarvw.com.au or read more reviews at www.mycarreview.com.au . Finally, if you can't come to us, we'll come to your home, workplace or worksite - call Northstar on 1300 894 655

Only 200 examples of the Caddy Runner are available while the Transporter Runner is limited to 350 units.
Both are pitched as more utilitarian than the current entry variants on which they are based, featuring special hard-wearing ‘Runner’ interior trim “equipped to withstand the rigours of daily deliveries of courier drivers in Germany”.
Priced from just $29,990 driveaway, the diesel-powered Transporter Runner substantially undercuts key rivals in the medium-size van segment including the Hyundai iLoad ($34,490) and Toyota HiAce ($36,990), both of which require extra for on-road costs, widening the price gap even further.
The sharp starting price represents a significant reduction over the standard Transporter TDI 250, which retails for $36,740 plus ORC ....read more
