“Very good and reliable little truck.”

Written on: 16/07/2014

We bought it new at 2004.It`s a d22 petrol 2,4 litters.We own it for 10 years now and we have no thought of changing it.It has been loaded nummerous times for work ( alot of them even 2 tons of load) and it never gave us any problem.Good offroad capability (we use it a lot in visiting tv antennas and wind genarators , in remote mountain locations)and most of the time loaded.After 10 years and 128.000 km the only thing we changed is the cluch.We do all services in time in our own establishment… Read Full Review

“54 d22 navara engine failure”

Written on: 28/12/2013 by vickies202 (1 review written)

my d22 was never used as a works vehicle, old gent up to 74k and family car with me for 3yrs taken it to 90k, well looked after and serviced loads. made a light rattle on and off a week before failing, barely audible, took it back to garage (right after service) and told its normal... bs! next call to garage was for recovery. faulty rod bearings and when they go they can be dangerous if they shoot through the side of the engine block. nissan claimed its not under recall though i quoted the… Read Full Review

“Diesel Fuel System Failure”

Written on: 15/05/2013

I bought a brand new unit in 2008. After clocking a little more than 100K kilometers the car often went into limp mode. Dealer said that it needs about US2+++ to fix it i.e. replacing the diesel pump, railing, injectors.....etc. The car looks great but very poor after sales support. I'm very surprised that despite so many complains especially about the vehicle "lost of power" posted in the internet...the people in nissan failed to successfully fix the problems. Also vibration is a major… Read Full Review

“No good in the snow”

Written on: 23/01/2013 by Chinovo (1 review written)

When I bought my Navara I was never told about the 40 km/hour limit when in 4x4. Yet you canot turn corners so what good is that! My 2.5l with full options has scared me a few times in light snow conditions but finally after an accident free life (now 42) it finally spun in heavy snow. I have owned many 4x4's and this one should be checked out for a default. It is dangerous and something should be done!… Read Full Review

“Never buy a D40 Diesel”

Written on: 13/01/2013 by samcor (1 review written)

I have a 2009 Nissan navara ST-X D40... and to date the following has occurred. Replaced complete fuel system from the tank to the injectors, every component - 10k. Then no oil pressure - bent shaft in oil pump 8k followed by turbo charger 6.5k and now just to top it all off i have a broken crankshaft estimated cost 25k. This would have to be the most unreliable vehicle i have ever owned couple the costs mentioned above with the expence of relacement vehicles and you will start to understand my… Read Full Review

“Don't buy manual version if you plan to tow anything!”

Written on: 21/12/2012 by Compweigh (1 review written)

Purchased a manual Navara D40 king cab as work vehicle to tow trailer weighing 2500Kg. BIG MISTAKE. Vehicle is way too highly geared for towing anything beyond a half empty box trailer! Need to slip the clutch whenever taking off, and have no hope of taking off on a hill with the loaded trailer. When I have taken vehicle back to dealer with trailer, Nissan mechanic told me to put in 4x4 if stopped on a hill. Waiting to see how long clutch does last. Vehicle is rated to 3 tonnes but I wouldn't… Read Full Review

Agavins's Comment

Written on: 10/08/2013

Just had to replace my dual mass flywheel and clutch at 65,ooo KM. The dual mass flywheel is not fit for purpose, to the extent that here in Ireland, Nissan dealers recommend a single mass conversation and won't fit the dual mass. They do want €1500 for it though...

Can buy OEM for around €500 + Fitting. Slight increase in vibration at tick over, but at least I wont have to fork out €7-800 to replace it with another dual mass in another 60,000 km.....

“Fantastic Vehicles”

Written on: 05/10/2012 by Ladyleon (1 review written)

We bought our first Navara in 2005, it was a 2002 model, brilliant vehicle, any terrain, any weather our "beast" could cope with it, never a minute's problem with it, until some hooligan stole it and wrote it off!!!! After receiving the insurance money, we bought another Navara, this time 2004, now I think it is a D22 (still trying to find out the difference between a D22 and D40, nothing on the website actually gives you the difference in one sentence)this also has been an excellent vehicle… Read Full Review

beware! my 54 plate d22 was running great till 90k miles under use as a family car, running great with 3mth servicing and all of a sudden the engine fails... there is a recall on all these for faulty rod-bearings turning the engine to scrap metal, just lost a fortune and nissan argued it wasn't under recall though i was staring at the darn letter! they didn't bother to notify everyone either, get shot of d22 or get a newer one, only some models affected but these always go at some point!

“Nissan Navara is a softie.”

Written on: 27/05/2012

Clutches, divided mass flywheel, rear halfshafts, replacement wheels all done under warranty on a vehicle that is now just 3 years old and has done 60,000 miles. Stopped by VOSa with just 320 kilos in the buck, a Nissan spec toolbox with my usual small tools,a decent jack and with 3 up and we were overweight on the rear axle by 60 kg. Towing power is ok but cursed by the 4 wheel selection system that just does not want to drop out of low ratio despite numerous visits to the dealership. Comfy… Read Full Review

“Great Workhorse”

Written on: 10/05/2012 by fatty.2007 (1 review written)

I have a September 2009 Accenta and has now covered 142k and to date only had a prop shaft joint, 2 sets of front brake pads. Again i have heard of many problems but this is my second and just about to order my third. I get around 65k out of a set of tyres and average 29mpg even towing 2.7 ton most days. It gets used most days for towing and working on building sites. The only modification i have made is to have an extra leaf fitted in the rear springs which make the vehicle much nicer to… Read Full Review

“D40 2.5l Auto 2009”

Written on: 09/04/2012 by geffra (1 review written)

Western Australia requires a 4WD to cope with sand. This is not a good set up. Gutless in soft sand should come with a shovel. poor cheap interior finish. Brake rotors failed at 80,000Km. When cold a noticable delay to engage torque converter. Constant wheel alignments required. Will not release from low four wheel drive. I use it constantly as a 4WD. Electric windows stopped working. Bluetooth stopped working. front drive boots perished. Window wiper rubbers good for 3 months then harden up… Read Full Review
