-Full service kit including oil from the agents is just under R450.
-Clutch kit R1700 from the agents
-They reliable as fuck i thought i had a big problem turns out it was an earthing issue.
-very fuel efficient compared to all other bakkies
-Finding parking is no issue
-you don't need to ask for help when you need stuff that requires a bakkie

Dislikes
-You get calls to fetch stuff but there's ways to work around that.
-its slow but that goes for most diesel bakkies in saying that its only slow when I'm in a rush if you relaxed then no issues.



I would've gotten a Hilux but couldn't afford it and by afford i mean purchase price , fuel bill and maintenance. Hilux is nicer but they are not cheap.


What year model do you have and mileage if I may ask? And how long have you owned it?

2007 its the last of the go big shape mileage is 290xxxkm i have it about 2 years. My dad has a KB250 the previous shape he will not get rid of it but the KB250 i wont be able to live with its really slow when i drive it then i keep thinking something wrong with it but its 100% perfect its just slow.

If you are looking at Isuzu i wont say don't take note of the mileage but mileage is not as important as how it was maintained. as long the services was done it will last forever. Isuzu truck centre has KB280 that now probably clocked the odometer and they have never opened that motor just done the normal service.

That is very impressive. I think I must go test drive it and take it from there.

I'm glad to say that here's no bakkie around anymore. . .no one wanted to drive the bloody thing even though it was a high end one.

We now take away garden refuse with a e39 station wagon . . .. :bravo:

bakkies are just kak expensive and for a low priced one you will get it with loads of kms on and most people are scared of high kms,

also, don't just look at purchase price, take into account, tires etc,

I read that a full service kit is just under R450 from the agents, is this for real ????

And then they used that for the new MERC!!

But, I agree, the Navara isn't a good aged bakkie.


I always fancied the look of a Navara, what makes them kak bakkies? Serious question...

2007 Navara bought brand new only issue is the clutch goes every +-70k kms other than that the bakkie never skipped a beat...

So I also want to know where this "Kak Bakkie" status comes from :p0pc0rn: :think:
