Volkswagen Amarok 2011: Appropriate price?

Asked by Jono

I'm looking at a 2011 bog standard dual-cab, 6-speed VW Amarok for $19,700. It's done 109,000 km. I thought it drove nicely and it looks ok. I've been reading some reviews and now I'm getting scared. Is it a good buy, or am I getting ripped off?

The price is on the high side, but the kays are below the average for that model. There have been problems reported relating to cam timing belt failures that have led to major engine damage. I would avoid early Amaroks like the one you are considering and go for a safer option of a Hilux, Navara, Triton etc. rather than tale the risk.
