Hello everyone. I just came across this site and was hoping I might be able to get some advice from people who are a bit more experienced in Vauxhall Mokkas.

I am seriously considering purchasing one as a vehicle I can use for my commute to and from work (around 50 miles in total daily), and as a family car as we are expecting a baby in May.

I had test a test drive in one last weekend, however the dealer then revealed there had been problems with the turbo, which they had rectified by replacing the seals. That sent off alarm bells so I didn't purchase that one. I checked online and had read similar problems. Is this a common characteristic? I was hoping that it would be a reliable car....public transport to and from my work is awful if it were to experience problems.

The size of the car is perfect, plenty of room inside for me at 6ft 3". Just looking a bit of reassurance that one of these vehicles would be suitable for my needs.

Apologies if I have posted this in the wrong place.

Thanks,

Wayne

There are a few problems with some Mokka's but Not all, i had two and had no problems, both
1.4 turbo's which i think, as a lot do is the better choice, again some with the 1.6 cdti have
had no problems and some have, do a search through the threads, if your tall and want to
put the back seats down, which you have to lift the rear bases up , to do that you have to
remove the head rests and push the front seat forward, then you will have no room to drive
it, as i found out the first time i did it, I changed from a Mokka X to a Crossland X which
has more room, I am 6'-4", i am more comfy in the Crossland ,just my opinion , i'm sure someone will be along to give you their opinion

We have had two and never a problem. Use the "Search Community" and have a read, most people are quick to report their troubles/faults but rarely the good points.
As I have said in the past, a car is a mechanical/electrical movable object, and there are plenty of other things that could go wrong but hopefully don't.

I have a 4.5 year old 1.6 CDTi Had no issues with turbo whatsoever you should also not have any issues with the DPF with your daily mileage. Just hope I haven't put the mockers on it haha

Hi Wayne, I would not buy one with a family as the boot is very small. There also seems to be a growing issue with the clutch and duel mass flywheel. Just had mine changed for just over £1000!!
Kind regards
Steve

Same here, happy enough with ours, but do appreciate owners who have had a large repair bill may feel differently, but that unfortunately goes with owning any make of car after the warranty is out.

I would suggest that another test drive or viewing will cost nothing and only you can decide if it will fulfil your needs.
As commented above, nobody can guarantee a Mokka will have no faults in its warranty period, but outside of that any vehicle can face expense to have it rectified.
Personally, I have found the 1.4t auto to be a very good car in its class.

1.4T for me. Had two of them. Mind you they are auto. I don't mind changing gears but not on the daily driver. Only on my fun car -MGB.
