Is buying a used Amarok a good idea?

Post by JacquesVW » Thu Jun 22, 2017 8:39 am

Good day

We are looking at buying a used 'bakkie' and are seriously considering an Amarok double cab - our first choice actually. We are looking at spending R250000. Is there anything specific we need to look out for (since most cars have their glitches that starts to show after a certain amount of kilometers) - year model, kilometers, etc.

Some input will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks
