2017 Volkswagen Amarok V6 TDI550 Highline review

Our family have been dedicated users of the popular T/tough luxury utilities for many years, but I wanted a change, so I tried an Amarok Core Plus – loved the driving finesse, eight-speed gearbox, reliability and economy. Towing accounts for around 50 per cent of our driving so, after logging many kilometres in the Core Plus, went looking for more power...

2012 Volkswagen Amarok TDI400 Highline (4x4) Review

We have had our Amarok for just over 3 years now and it has 120,000km on the clock. We love the it and am now in the market for a new one. As a family of 5 we do a lot of camping, this usually involves pulling a heavy trailer over rough bush tracks or worse, super soft sand. The vehicle has constantly surprised us with the ease that it accomplishes tricky situations that have left us recovering other dual cabs...

2014 Volkswagen Amarok Review

I have driven the volkswagon Amarok for over 6 months now and feel quite confident in saying that the engineering that went into these vehicles are far superior then most of its competition, the duel cab segment is vastly expending by workers and families, so with that in mind the Volkswagon Amarok can appeal to everyone with a hard working or adventurous lifestyle with its rugged reliability and outstanding space and comfort inside and out of the cab...

2015 Volkswagen Amarok TDI420 Dark Label Review

Although a weekend warrior's ute, the Volkswagen Amarok poses a value proposition to those otherwise inclined to purchase a premium SUV. With comfort and convenience features to rival many premium SUV manufacturers, the Amarok will both carry and tow more than significantly higher priced vehicles in the SUV segment...

2013 Volkswagen Amarok TDI420 Trendline Review

Waste of time! Don't buy a Amarok!!! Save your money for a Ranger, BT-50, Navara etc... We brought this Amarok new in December in 2013. It had done 000324kms, so it was a ex-demo. after about 3 weeks of drving it and actually enjoying it, I lost power steering on a vacation with family and friends. This made me look a fool on the side of the road, with their other RELIABLE newer utes beside me...

2015 Volkswagen Amarok TDI400 Highline Review

After testing all available Dual cab 4WD ute's on the market both on and off road, the choice to purchase a fleet of 5 x Amarok TDI 420 8 speed autos some 2.5 years was very easy. The Amarok was a standout vehicle then and even now remains the class leader in my opinion. All have performed exceptionally well with only minor electrical niggles experienced on 2...

2013 Volkswagen Amarok TDI420 Highline Review

I have just purchased a Amarok, I am totally surprised with how much it feels like a normal car driving and just sitting in it. You feel like your in a solid family car, the torque from the little 2litre is pretty unreal and totally gets me thinking, wow a small engine with this torque? This thing cruises on any road feels solid doing it, I couldn't be more happier with this car...

2011 Volkswagen Amarok TDI400 Highline Review

I have never felt compelled to do a review like this before but after seeing some of the stuff posted in these owner reviews I felt that an actual owner of an Amarok had to give a truthful review...

2012 Volkswagen Amarok TDI400 Review

What a disappointing vehicle the Amarok has been - it has been plagued with warranty issues from day one. VW has not dealt with these issues in a timely manner and it would appear we are not the only customers who have experienced this. The Amarok is gutless and totally unreliable compared to the Landcruiser...

2011 Volkswagen Amarok TDI400 Trendline Review

I bought a brand new 2011 Volkswagen Amarok in March 2013 and never again am i buying a Volkswagen. I bought this and had it serviced by the same dealer thinking that i qualified for the capped priced servicing. How wrong i was. For reasons i fail to understand, my car was not covered under it and i only found out after they had serviced it...
