I was supplied with my current Navara to replace another D40ST-X written off by the insurance company and it is a piece of rubbish. Clutch/ flywheel failed pre 20000km, followed shortly after by the intercooler dying. Both were replaced under warranty but the clutch issue was not plain sailing - Nissan are not very good to deal with when it comes to warranty issues. The paint was mismatched between the two O/S doors and the dealer won't do a thing, along with a number of other cosmetic... (read more)

This is a great pickup but will always be more agricultural than a more road biased vehicle. It was bought for my wife (replacing an Audi A4 which kept getting stuck in the snow as we live on the side of a mountain) It uses two wheel drive full time to the rear wheels, when you need it there is a manual electronic switch to 4 wheel drive, you are restricted in that you cannot turn a hard 90 degree with this engaged as you will encounted windup of the 4wd system. Now when you do get into the... (read more)

Have had the truck for just over 6 months now it has done over 100k and has had engine replaced at some point in it's life.
neg's only two well 3 things part's cost the earth hard ride and lack of bottom end power below 2k rpm.Front tyre wear due to the LSD pushing

My 58 reg Feb 09 Navara adventura 2.8 manual has a split personality; To drive by itself in 2 wheel drive on the road it is smooth and comfortable and has loads of power. One small niggle was the spontaneous movement of the electric seats both fore and aft and into the recline. Fixed on warranty, cause a couple of small catches on the plastic surrounding the seat switches had broken and the cover was operating the switches when I moved slightly in the drivers seat otherwise I ahve had no...

I bought this truck new in Feb 2009 and have done 45k so far. It has been brilliant in every aspect other than fuel consumption. I do very mixed mileage with a pretty equal split between a roads, b roads, city driving and then do frequent dual carraigeway/motorway runs. It performs everywhere. The steering is light for round town, it cruises at whatever speed you want it to and has the power to overtake when you need it.
I bought this as a company car and of course it is excellent to... (read more)

I have owned this from new and never had a minute of trouble with it. Just completed 60K miles. I wouldn't part with this truck for anything similar. Had a blowout in the front offside at 85 mph in the fast lane of the M6!! steady as a rock. Cant speak highly enough of it as you can probably tell......having hell of a job though trying to find a new brake and throttle rubber!! (read more)

Having had my D40 now for 2 years, I can say it has performed very well indeed. Mine does not carry heavy weights, just the gundogs and shooting gear. I do, however pull a 26' twin axle caravan of which you wouldn't even know was on the back when your driving. I absolutely love this truck and would not get rid of it, eve for a new one. The older 05-06 D40's are more economical than the newer one's due to the Euro engines having to meet new emission laws. The performance on the older... (read more)

I have owned this truck for two years now and must say it has been a reliable comfortable vehicle. but it has not worked very hard and has only covered 65000klm. After having moved from a grand cherokee I thought I might be disappointed with the handling of a truck as I had owned an L200 previously but the navara has surprised me. If I had to pick a down side it would most likely be slightly poor build quality.
Its not a car but for a truck its great (read more)

I've read most of the comments on here and I'm very surprised at the post, i can only think people have forgotten this is a truck!! The Navara is a very capable vehicle in every way and trust me I've had a few to know what i am talking about!! mine is the Aventura Euro 3 so basically the first of the face lift models, it really has it all, built-in Satnav, heated electric leather seats, pleany of power, looks, drivability and more, i take mine off roading also and it has done itself proud...

I've had my current Navara D40 Aventura for 2 years, i love it to bits, looks great, drives great, and suits my needs very well.
Plenty of room inside, seats 5 people, electric heated seats are nice in winter, decent sat nav although no postcode search. Very luxurious for a pick up truck.
Would i buy another one? Yes! (read more)

Nissan Navara Aventura Double Cab Diesel Auto Pickup - One of the first people to get the new model and thus I had all of the recalls first. Apart from minor things like the back axle falling off and the half shafts falling out which were fixed under warranty there has been a series of minor niggles and recalls and after 4 years it is really showing its age with body trim and interior trim (esp door handles) falling apart. Also problem with central locking (one door locks whilst driving and... (read more)

These trucks are registered as LGV so the road tax is cheaper than anything else even near its class, a pathfinder will cost you 400quid, the Nav only 180 quid.
The new current navara is D40, this is denoted by the bosy shell, the current reviews are a mixture of the older D22(up till 2005) and the D40 (current model)
The D40 is a good all round truck, it is the most favourable and desirable truck in it's class.
It out sells any other pick up, and in my opion probably outsells most other 4X4... (read more)

I will not be buying another. The Nissan Navara is very heavy on fuel automatic gearbox very old fashioned to slow to change, sat nav wont take post codes. Bluetooth usless, when towing its like driving a boat steering much heavier than old model. The brakes are not good enough to stop a vehicle of this size. (read more)
