Cheap­est bakkies to fix

The Witness - Wheels - - TRANSPORT -

THE 2016 Kinsey Re­port cov­ers 10 sin­gle cab bakkies, all of which have seen sharp in­creases in the cost of the 2016 bas­ket of 34 parts.

The prices for all parts in this study were sourced in July 2016 and al­most ex­clu­sively from deal­ers in the Dur­ban/ Pine­town/Umh­langa ar­eas.

From two small work­horses — the Nis­san NP 200 sell­ing for R157 900 and the Chev Util­ity, prices range up to R298 800 for the Amarok 2-litre.

The NP200, Chev Ute and the Nis­san NP300 slot into the first three places, with bas­ket costs of R43 967 for the NP200 (R47 026 in 2015), R54 347 for the Chev (R59 096) and R58 134 for the NP300 (R49,314).

Both the NP200 and Ute had lower bas­ket prices than last year. The two Nis­sans have the low­est ser­vic­ing costs — NP200 R1 992 and the NP 300 R2 189.

Chev and Isuzu are most cost-ef­fi­cient for re­pair parts — the Chev Ute with a re­pair bas­ket of R6 606 and the Isuzu KB250 with R7 738.

The NP 200 has the low­est re­pair costs at R31 756 fol­lowed by R35 497 for the Isuzu. • More on www.kin­seyre­
