I bought a navara last year. It is a 1998 model, dual cab, 4x2. It came fitted with gas so it is very cheap to run.
It is really cheap on fuel even when you run it on petrol. it has the same amount of space in the back as you get in a big 4X4 but for a much smaller price. It is nice to ride in and when going along the highway is quiet as well.
Some small problems. My navara has been fitted with gas so sometimes it feels a bit down on power but for what you pay for fuel, it is great.

Love it!

Awesome 4wd, done heaps of heavy sand and mud driving, let the tires down and you are always out! Very surprised at how good on fuel it is for a 4wd. 600 - 650km around town to a tank. It can be a bit bouncy but it is a 4wd, not a car. Never had a problem with it in 7 years.
Reliable, easy to clean after work or a big trip, good fuel economy for a 4wd.
Could use a little more leg room in the back

Hi,
I have the 2002 STR with a Diesel / Gas convesion and it goes like a rocket, see http://www.dieselgastechnologies.com.au/nissan.htm and you will see my Navara there .

The only problem i have had is the suspesion which i'm upgrading to a new one soon. Other than that nothing else has been an issue, rule of thumb you change your Engine oil at every 5000km your engine will last you a life time easy, ask any Diesel Mech.

Happy to speak to any of you.

Steve
Power/shape/options/tows very well and great low range
Not much room for adults in the back but not an issue for me ,The nissan Shocks could be better.

Navara 4x4 ST-R: We have owned a Nissan Navara for the first time for over one year now. The reason that we bought this car was that it seemed to have more leg room in it than most of the other dual cabs that we looked at. Apart from a two or three recalls that Nissan had on this car at first, we have had no problems with it at all. The only thing that I will look at changing in the future is that I would prefer a flat tray back on the ute instead on what I have got now that comes as standard.

A rough and ready truck

published

I have had one of these trucks as a work unit up until recently, They ride quite hard and steering is not terribly accurate but they are reliable. The 2005 model has air con Power windows,Cd,Cruise etc. It loves the juice ,Company put in LPG in the end being a 3.2 litre petrol it revs quite high. The brakes remind you your driving a truck and shocks remind you you have now shattered your spine.
It Never stopped and could take harsh treatment
At the end of its time with me the power window on passenger side stopped working, The cruise stopped working .

The ute is comfortable, has good excelleration, but lacks in torque on low end revs. Off-road is good, but only if you have nothing loading on the front end. The weihgt of winch bar and extras to help in off-road conditons lowers the car about 2-3 inches, making entry extremly rough on components in the front end.
It's fuel economy is extremely good for the power out put that the ute delivers.
Torchen bars- its to heavy in the front end not to have spings to lift nearly 3/4 of the utes weight.

very disappointed with my navara d40, fuel consumption 400 - 450 kms to 70 litres engine light continually comes on, clutch sometimes slips when 4wding, rear tailgate hinges bent from having a dirtbike rear wheel resting on it very poor design of hinges and very weak, rear licence plate lamps clips continually brake due to poor clip design, brakes spongy and not the greatest either over all the car is a good cruiser but not built for off roading or work horse,funny huh?
looks good and thats about it!
bad fuel economy
spongy brakes
weak clutch

weak tailgate
