My moneys on Nissan Navara, waiting 6 months for it then plagued with dpf troubles, Isuzu’s aren’t 6 months waiting time. Hilux has long waiting times but don’t hear much about people having trouble with them.

I may be mistaken but Nissan don't have DPF issues, all add blue. The one I had was perfect for 50k miles before I swapped it. Son bought a new Navara in May, ex stock. Now done 12k miles without missing a beat. Don't knock it 'til you've tried it! Mind you Nissan service is shite, they all seem to be?

I'm currently on with Skoda Finance to return our Karoq. The fuel pump has given up, dealer is blaming misfueling but we only fill from our own tank. They want 7600 quid. 18 month old.
seven thousand six hundred for a fuel pump? my word! I thought it was only VW that could charge!
 
Ordered a new pickup dec 2020, arrived 30th June, electrical problem and air bag fault on way home from dealership. They came to collect the pickup after 3 or 4 calls, they wanted me to book the car in rather than come to collect it. They left me with a car not a pick-up and kept mine for 3 or 4 days and returned it with body work damage on the drivers side passenger side and dinted rear bumper. They hired me a pickup while mine went to the body shop. Pick-up came back I drove off, same airbag light came on as last time, they took it back and it took approximately 10 weeks to get parts. They hired me a pickup for this period, collected my pickup again and the same day it started a regen on the dpf not even done 100 miles it has done this 14 time since I have had it, it has done 1400 miles. The car has been back again to the dealership for a day and a half with no success in resolving the matter. They have changed the fuel filter and taken fuel samples. the speakers work intermittently on the drivers side front and back which the pickup has been back for and has not been resolved, and now there is a problem with the sat nav. I am left with a vehicle that has repeated regeration problems, speaker problems and satnav issues. All are still not resolved .
There has been lots of phone calls and time wasted in trying to resolve these issues and has all been very amicable but there is a lack off contact on there side. I have sent numerous emails to try to get the problems resolved and still haven’t been contacted by the dealer principal. All the dealership seem to want me to do is keep repeatedly booking it in without the matter being resolved. I have contacted the manufacturer and they said they cannot help it all has to go through the dealer.
I have asked for a replacement as I have lost complete faith in this vehicle, they have offered me market price for the pick-up but don’t seem to seem to understand I have waited 6 months for this pickup and I can’t take there money and drive away with a new pickup from a garage the way things are at the moment.
I what can I do or would you do?
I guess it's an I z u? Lots of people have had this problem and it appears unfixable?
 
I assume you know and being ironic!... but it is VW.. and guessing a new engine?
Doubtful as production stopped in Sept 20 of the Amarok. I’ve got one of the last ones on a 70 plate which came brand new in March 21. I’d be surprised if there was anymore being delivered through till June 21.

Also VW van centres don’t loan ‘cars’ as the OP has been given. It used to be another Amarok but now it’s a van as they don’t have any pickup supplies coming through until later part of 2022
 
Another reason to buy vehicles on finance I guess.

I'd be getting a solicitors letter written and sending the fudging thing back. First loss if your best. Buying new from a dealer that hopeless would put me off ever using them for anything. Would you want these folk doing your warranty work?!

Nissan here, 3yo and just over 60k - 1 x transmission sensor under warranty (common fault apparently). Otherwise absolutely faultless and really happy with it.

In general I think there are less dissatisfied Nissan owners on here than most other makes, don’t get may threads on Nissan issues

Yes fully aware of VAG group. Just he said a new fuel pump not a new engine!
Fuel system. Tank flush, new pump, injectors and fuel rail. Independent has quoted five and a half but as he says, despite him using Delphi injectors, Skoda will say they are non genuine.

I honestly haven’t a clue what we’ll replace our to l200s

what new 4x4 is there on the market that you’ll happily throw feedbags in and use for shepherding?? Anything new I’ve got in you feel bad wearing welly’s the rear ends to high to make the load area usable with a canopy on and have the turning circle of a boat as there so much bigger
Another year or two and it will be a choice of 3, so that makes it easier... probably non of them!

Pity that these are not being brought into the UK with 50hp more.... Love the bed.
