VOLKSWAGEN AMAROK USER REVIEWS
The fuel consumption figures are not entirely true , if the speedos were correctly tuned I think you would get an entirely different figure . VW have their speedos wound up by nearly 10klm's so in actual fact when the speedos reading 100 you are only doing around 91/92 klm's. This in turn creates false fuel figures which makes the consumption look better. Currently I am averaging 9.5lt/100k's , driving the car on the speed limit . I have asked to have my speedometer re-calibrated but are told that it is within govt regulations so get used to it . Apparently car companies are allowed 10% variation on speedos. The only other issue I have with my Amarok is the head lights are truly disappointing , VW have checked them 3 times and told me they are fine , my wife's corolla has better headlights than this $60000 4x4 and that's a fact. The rest of the car is awesome and it is a great car , you feel safe driving on the highway or off road . Creature comforts in cab are easy to use and well set out. 8 spd gearbox is a gem and the engine has plenty of grunt , overtaking anything is a breeze . I would recommend this car to any family who wants some more room and want to go off road but , check the headlights are correct before taking ownership , VW not to flash at helping me with my headlight issue .
