Come on Hart whilst I agree with your observations  at least it shows that VW haven't completely given up on an off road Transporter. Having ridden in yours however I do understand why you think it will take a lot to rediscover the Tristar holy grail. Nurture but enjoy yours and yourself.
Happy Christmas everyone.

Hi Roger, good to hear that have been tolerant all year !! Just pray that Santa will pass your place and will offload this beauty but useless beast somewhere else... I think I do know where it might end up but psssst , won't say.
Glad it will pass our place as well, have no time left to LIKE a cockpit (gender less ?) which resembles a Christmas Tree in full bloom, or a tray which is hard to get into, is too short for the kidz stuff when moving them out of the family home, and is even shorter if you take the spare along. Suppose most people will leave it in the garage. There are more shortcomings like the price but don't get me going.... I'm sure it will find happy city owners, DSG off-road ? Needs to be seen, our Polo DSG plays up when it's getting cool. 
What a shame they couldn't find a proper name for it. UNLIKE

Yeah Hartmut's spot on. VW ever since late 1992, continues to lose the plot. 
At best, it's an impractical novelty but should do well for giggleheads at the annual VW Nationals Shine & Show.

That isn’t quite as funny as it sounds. 

The T3 Syncro has a built-in advantage over the front engined versions and in that the engine is at the rear and over the primary driving wheels.  For the same reason, all earlier Kombis could negotiate a lot of terrain that would be impassable to front engine / rear drive vehicles..

Given the confluence of vehicle design over all platforms, it is unlikely that any manufacturer will ever again produce a rear engined vehicle; this will further contribute to the uniqueness of the T3 Syncro..

I agree with what both Les and Ken have said.
My conscrn is with VW adding yet another list of complexities to their product.
Fun while working, because that which can go wrong will go wrong,
and VW has progressively made it so that fixes can only be done by a dealer,
and in my experience that can be excessive and expensive.

Oh, and what looks like low profile tyres on an off road vehicle ?????
