Hi everyone, not sure if this is the right place for this question. I have read a lot of stories, watched a lot of YouTube videos and have fell for the romanticism of touring in a Kombi. BUT every story or video has shown or told of the unreliability of VW Kombi's, the dramas they have encountered with the issues each and every Kombi appears to find. Can a Kombi be reliable enough to travel around Australia, be on the road full time for 12 months plus. Not overly concerned with the camping gear or living extras that need to be taken, I have that well in hand. Can a Kombi survive the roads of Australia without having a fatal attack of some sort. The only thing that hasn't been replaced on mine is the gear box and clutch, I have had a tacho, oil temp,pressure,fuel gauge fitted. Has anyone here done any extreme long distance long term touring that they may want to tell me some of their stories. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org if you would prefer to converse this way. Thanks for reading Rosscoe.
