Volkswagen Amarok 2011 Q&As
Check out real-world situations relating to the Volkswagen Amarok 2011 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
Volkswagen Amarok 2011: Appropriate price?
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.Show more
Volkswagen Amarok 2011: Differential, fan belt and tensioner problems
The deal VW has offered you on the diff rebuild is the industry standard deal on a car that is a few years old and has done a few kays, such as yours. It's frustrating for you, but cars do wear out and do break down. Regarding the belt and tensioner, they are normally considered consumable parts and not covered by the warranty. If you could prove that it was design or production fault that caused the problem you could make a claim against the company.Show more
Volkswagen Amarok 2011: Many problems since new
It's disappointing that you have had so many problems, but at least it appears that VW has fixed them when they have occurred. As for the brake rotors, it seems that Europeans makes are more prone to brake wear than cars from some other parts of the world, and 60,000 from a set of rotors is not bad.Show more
Volkswagen Amarok 2011: Highline wiring incompatible with trailer?
Our information from VW's commercial vehicles people is that they are unaware of any issue with the Amarok wiring. They source their dealer-fit tow bars locally and there's no issue with them, which suggests there isn't an issue with local tow bars/trailer wiring. They did tell us that an adaptor is needed for trailers with LED lights and that all VW dealers have the adaptor available. Beyond that I would suggest you go back to your dealer and discuss the issue with them.Show more
