    CamBelt Service - Which Indy?

    Hi Guys,

    My rok is due for a cambelt service in the next few months.

    Who in Gauteng is the VW indy of choice for such work? (It has to be RMI/AA approved for warranty purposes).

    Howzit Hugo,

    My concern is that at 73k km's, if there is any damage done, it's done.

    I'll keep you all in the loop - I'll be actively monitoring the consumption. I really am just hoping that...

    Ultimately, the point of this exercise is to get the dealer to take some accountability should something go wrong, or should the oil consumption increase. Nevertheless,...

    Re: Lemon Amarok - Need Advice Please

    Thanks Marius,

    If I'm not mistaken, the manual says 1l/2000km is within spec.

    Even so, based on how many other Rok owners I've spoken to, oil usage is very uncommon.

    Cheers,
