The low price reflects the fact that the Cali has a few specialist issues that need to be dealt with-these are also shown on the pictures:
-roof canvas - hole to fabric where it has caught on the metal when closing in wind- could be repaired. Does not leak.
-attention to the paintwork on the panel between the windscreen and the elevating roof, which has succumbed to the well-known problem that Californias have with paintwork on the aluminium sections of the roof. There is a great deal of helpful information about this on the site’s forums.
Refrigerator- the gas strut for the refrigerator lid has broken off but I still have the strut and it just needs a bolt. The refrigerator has a fault too so does not work- VW garage investigates and it needs a new Fridge control unit- quote from Penguin Refrigeration- 100.00 but needs fitting or can recondition. We just used a cool box so didn’t repair it.
Drivers door-mounting in door trim broken so handle stopped working- VW garage quoted £454 inc VAT but I believe you could get this done cheaper. Currently opens with a pull-tie fixed To handle and passed MOT last year with this so haven’t replaced.
Rear cabinet sliding door and handle is broken apart and needs fixing or replacing or can be left as it is.
Auxiliary heater is switching off- I had the flap replaced in 2017 and worked fine so a recent problem. Do not use
Heater in summer but needs investigating.
Awning-right leg is very stiff when pushing up and down. Needs taking apart and putting back in to see if something is making it stick.
Thank you for looking.
