    I forgot to say, this is still the nicest looking pickup on the roads today. Would I choose it again, even ahead of a Ranger? Without any doubt.

    For the first time every I had had a tire incident. Seems like a rock on the Tankwa gravel road punctured a tire right between the thread grooves, so I couldn't see the physical hole. Inserted a plug, but since I couldn't really see the hole it was a case of hit and miss by feeling where the hissing sound stopped. At least the tire was capable of being inflated again, but had a slow puncture going down to 1 bar within about 20 minutes. Luckily we were on our way home so a couple of stops in between brought as home safely.

    However, what k.k tires these default Good Years are. If they puncture so easily, even when deflated for gravel road driving, they suck big time.

    You are then very lucky this is your first instance. All 5 goodyears are still in my garage, every single one with a puncture that was repaired, some with 3!!! And all from thorns!!!!

    Replaced them with not even 5k km on the clock

    So my Style V6 het nou so 5500km op, ek het n stof issue gehad en ons het die basies 95% gesort, verder geen rerige issues. Het n software upgrade gehad en dit het die towing mode uitgesort wat nie al die funksie opsies gegee het nie. Verder geen issues, weet is nog early days.

    Die ander ding wat ek nie van gehou het nie was die suspensie, veral op grond, was net te sag en die neus het veral baie op en af beweeg as jy deur n dip is, en sy gat was te laag as ek sleep.

    Het toe nuwe suspensie gefit en moet se ek is nou baie happy, ek verkies n stiffer feeling as ek deur dips en oor spoedwalle ry. Het ook 50mm lift voor en agter gekry. Het 265 65 18 bande ook gefit.

    Sorry kry nie die fotos gedraai nie.

    Hi all, what are your experiences when insuring your New Amarok compared to let's say a similarly spec'd Hilux? I replaced my '23 Hilux 2.4 D/C 4x4 auto with a '23 Amarok Life D/C 4Motion auto. Quote from my insurance (one of the market leaders) was 1,141 Rand monthly for the Amarok whereby the Hilux was 690 Rand monthly. Value of the Hilux was around 80K less, other than that everything else was as the same i.e. comprehensive cover, pensioner discount, no-claim bonus and so on. I then queried the 65% increase in premium and their answer was that parts prices for Amarok are much higher compared to Toyota and availability is not as good. What do you guys think? Is this a lot of B/S?

    This means they are making their decision on a car that is barely a year old. If they base their decision on the previous Amarok, that is just plain silly.

    For what it is worth, Amarok (prev gen) part prices are more or less in line with other d/cabs.

    I got the same rate as on my old V6 amarok, obvious new V6 premium is higher as it is almost double in value.

    Going on 13000km and still regard the new Amarok the closest to my Disco 4, my all time favourite vehicle; if not on par. I think the comfortable VW seats make a big contribution.

    I note more and more of them on the road, so clearly people realized they're a winner.

    Drove down fom Namibia to Cape town, almost 2000km, and bakkie perform faultless, ave consumption was 8.8km/ at 130km/h speed control, ok with it as bakkie have bigger tires and 50mm suspention lift.

    Drive is brilliant and power is just awesome when u pass 3 trucks at once. No stiff legs or back, very cumfy, agree can be a bit more support for your legs but i am happy. Driving back next sunday.

    Pity about the neg thread on this vehicle.

    I wonder how the 125kW new Amarok compares to the 132kW older version?
