Volkswagen Sharan I – BODY FUNCTIONALITY

We remind you of the existence of this old model because you can buy it really cheaply and still have real value in use. If someone is looking for a spacious car to the city or for short routes – this is an excellent proposition. The functional interior can accommodate 5, 6 or 7 people (depending on the version), the seats fold easily and the luggage compartment is extremely easy to arrange.

Volkswagen Sharan I – ENGINES

You can try to be original and buy a strong version of the 2.8 VR6 gasoline, but it is an old car that will never be a youngtimer, so it is better if at least it turns out to be cheap to run. We recommend the proven 1.9 diesel (in any power version) or any 4-cylinder petrol version (preferably imported in perfect condition “under LPG”).

EMERGENCY

A lot of minor faults, but the maintenance costs are usually not too high. 

COSTS

Low purchase price, low spare parts prices, hassle-free repairs.

WORTH KNOWING

  • Most of the cars are approved for 7 people, but only 5 seats. Two additional luggage seats are often sold separately.
  • Broken loudspeaker housings in the door usually do not indicate an accidental past. They are so unhappily placed that passengers “kick” at them when disembarking.
  • After 2000, all versions have 6 gears.

TYPICAL DEFECTS AND REPAIR COSTS

  • Chassis corrosion – This is a common problem, but fortunately not all units are affected. Imported, garage cars are generally in good condition.
  • Failures of the fuel heating system – Few people know that old Sharans diesel usually have an engine heater that activates in winter (reacts to a drop in temperature). If it is broken, fuel consumption increases sharply.
  • The worn – 1.9 TDI bushings after 2005 have a problem with the bushings. After buying a used car, it is worth replacing it prophylactically.

ADVANTAGES AND DISADVANTAGES

+ Very practical body.
+ A wide range of cheap parts.
+ Large supply on the secondary market.
+ Low operating costs and low value loss.

– Problems with corrosion of older copies.
– Failed 2.0 TDI diesels (they have problems with the head and unit injectors)

WORTH BUYING

An old gasoline version in perfect condition “under gas”, or a well-kept 1.9 TDI diesel in any version.

WATCH OUT FOR

Sharany 2.0 TDI. These versions have problems with the head and lubrication and the serial particle filter.
