Love this car!
I simply love this car!
I was wanting the new Mercedes X class based on their prototype and I’m glad I made this choice.
My Navara looks awesome, it’s comfortable and drives like a dream.
It would have got 5 stars only for its truck-like turning circle and the 2.3 twin turbo is a little bit under sized for a vehicle of this size.
Have to say, Werribee Nissan we’re champions; would recommend them over and over!
Disappointing to say the least!
Ever since new this ute has given me trouble.
Almost a lemon!
As soon as I left the dealership I new it didn't have the power it should, also once on the freeway there was a terrible shake right through the whole ute.
I went to the local Nissan dealer straightaway and they found that there was a problem with the turbo boost...that was fixed! as to the wobble......sorry we cant find anything!
I drove for another 5000km....then totally feed up!
FIRST 4x4 Dual Cab Ute
Bought New from Westpoint.
Performance is good. No issue so far. just done 1000kms. Kids love it as the high position at the back.
Fuel consumption will never get close to dealer suggested.
Paint seems a bit thin. Heard a lot about oil leak.
Will keep an close eye on it. Still Extremely Happy
Not what I expected
Not what I expected at all
Nissan used to be good but this quality has gone down
Dealership service terrible they don’t care that the ute is falling apart after 1 year
Waste of money avoid at all costs
Even my mechanic was shocked how poorly built
They are not made to last anymore
Ended up selling it

Very happy, definitely innovation that excites!
Very happy with this truck. So comfortable and nice to drive. Its about time manufacturers step up and build a duel cab with coil rear end. All the car reviews say that the np300 doesn't carry weight well....but 85% of ppl buying duel cabs don't need or want to carry big loads...if they do throw in so heavy duty coils for $200....and you'll still have a better ride than a Ranger or Hilux....I know because I test drove them all and the np300 was a winner buy far. Thumbs up to Nissan for getting in 1st and redesigning the humble duel cab when no ...one else would...of course it would take a couple of goes to get it rite but it was well worth it! At the end of the day all new cars will have issues...but that's life...talk to your dealership kindly and respectfully and they will fix the problem....with a little patience. Love the np300. If your looking at buying a new duel cab give it a test drive...you might just be impressed...like I was.
18000kms and mostly perfect
2017 series 2 White manual ST. I drove the Amarok and triton, and found this to be the better buy. I have had the car for just over 12 months, and the ute is basically perfect, including daily driving and a 4000 km trip. The only issue was an minor oil leak from the intercooler pipe from new, which was replaced and haven’t had any issues since.
The ute is very comfortable to drive, nice interior and fairly smooth on the road and corners well, given it’s a Ute. Engine has bucket loads of torque, you can almost just leave it in 6th most of t...he time and will just pull away when asked. fuel economy is amazing for this size 4x4 ute. Average is 7.8 l/100km city and freeway, I’ve had 5 on some 80km/h trips. Yes the official figures are rubbish, but I think people who complain on here forget they are not driving a Prius! our Pajero gets nowhere near this. Engine sounds like a diesel, but is quieter than our Pajero, especially when cruising on freeways, where the car is very quiet. 4x4 works as advertised, with good ratios in the manual for slowly driving in 1st if need be. Turning circle is crap, but seems the same as a Hilux and long wheelbase utes in general, it is a long vehicle, so if it didn’t have the reverse camera, I’d find it hard to park. Stereo and nav system works great, has Bluetooth, hands free voice activation and can use Siri on IPhones to send messages etc. A/C worked great over summer. The white paint is tough as you can expect. The only annoying things are lack of outside air temp indicator, and the fuel warning coming on with 160km of fuel left- first world problems Only needs service once a year, which is about $500.
Don't Be Fooled by the Marketing
The NISSAN ST-X NP300 (YS23DDTT) has been singularly the worst experience in a new motor vehicle I have ever had. Over the years I have been fortunate enough to have have had some 12 new vehicles ranging from Landcruiser's, Hilux's, Commodores and now my second Nissan.
All have been fit for purpose with the exception of the latest purchase of the NISSAN ST-X NP300.
The Good: I find it comfortable to drive and easy wash and clean.
The Bad: From new the vehicle exhibited a vibration through the steering wheel at 80-100klm. Returned to dealersh...

Absolute crap and a death trap
On the 4th January I purchased a brand new vehicle from MacArthur Nissan. I was advised from the sales manager I could option up my vehicle as I was after a particular model (black edition) and they could do it better. The company sells 5 to 10 of these month as per conversation. From day one the car has had a vibration in the rear when travelling over 100km. From 4th January to today I have only had the vehicle for 2 weeks in my possession and paying full finance. They have put several different tires, wheels and tried to repair it but it stil...l has a vibration. I have had the sales manager & also master technician out with me in the care and they both confirmed the vibration. With the the last test drive the master technician also confirmed that is a fault in that particular model across the board. It can be quiet dangerous as the back tray vibrates continuously. Spoke with [name removed] at Nissan Australia and pretty much told bad luck - it’s standard
So amazing !
This car gets me where I need to go at a quick pace and also I love the style of the car! I’ve gotten so many compliments on how stunning it looks! I’m so in love with it and the car is so amazing ! The interior is gorgeous and my other friend is purchasing this too because of me!
Never buy another Nissan period. Oil leak after 1000 km service ...Ticking sound when accelerating
Owe Nissan D40 before beautiful car doing 230000 km not a lot of problems.
Decide to upgrade to Np 300, beautiful interior but the drive is terrible.. Ticking sound when accelerating in gear 1 and 2 with loss of power. Oil started leaking after 1000km services. Took it back but oil leak again after 2 days then they change a holes and that fix the problems. Mention to them about the Ticking sound and a drumming noise from the back, was told no fault and normal Diesel engine sound. Very disappointed with Nissan.
Will never buy another Nissan period.
I’d rather ride my push bike for reliability.
Driving experience dramatically improved with an aftermarket suspension kit from TJM,
Reliability is an absolute joke, 55,000 on the clock and I’ve had 4 boost solenoids fail,
3 intercooler hoses leak oil and one of which blew off and couldn’t be reattached sending the car into limp mode.
4 CV boots come loose spraying grease everywhere, finally on the 4th go they replaced the whole CV shaft and haven’t had an issue with that part since,
2 rear main seals fail,
2 timing case seals fail,
Drivers seat foam fail,
Rust above the windscreen and behind the rear window seam from delivery.
Paint is thinner than toilet paper.
Output shaft seal fail, ...

4x2 DX Navara NP300 two thumbs up
Had a 4x2 since end of 2015, it's been a great run about with no problems at all, they sent a recall a little while ago, something to do with the computer not registering a fault with the o2 sensor. All fixed with a quick trip to the dealer,
Drives great, quiet inside the cabin considering it's a base model, also safety, Bluetooth, cruise control, reasonable fuel economy, it no race car but does the job admirably, gears were notchy a bit when new but have now settled in to the selector nicely, first gear could have been a bit taller but bigger wheels fix this a make it more on pace through the gears.
New Car Rust - Denial
This is what you get when you buy a new Nissan Navara RX (4x2) SC - Rust in an area where no one looks.
A week after I bought the Navara on 12/01/18 I saw some adverse reports on rust issues with Nissan and decided to take a closer look only to find rust inside both front wheel arches. I booked it in for a check at Aspley Nissan and was told that all new cars have rust. I immediately notified Nissan Gladstone where I bought it from and asked for a new vehicle without the rust or a refund. I then sent Nissan Aust. the photos and was asked if...
Plenty of aftermarket Parts
So many aftermarket parts for np300 to choose from... pity the steering on the car and shortness of 1st gear (manual) in the D23 let it down. Nice ride in suspension though. Bit basic inside compared with other utes in the market. Thats probably why their are so many aftermarket options ! Capable 4wd though
Right Hand Rear Axle seal leak
I have had my NP300 STX since December 2015. Great car but sagy rear end when towing my caravan.I fitted air bags which fixed this problem. In June 2017 the car went in to my Nissan dealer to get the RH rear axle seal fixed & the brakes replaced due to the oil on the brake shoes, then again 1 month in July then once again in November. The car is again leaking for the 4th time and is going back to Nissan on 30th of Janurary 2018 for the 4th time??? I don't understand how Nissan can let this continually happen, what do I have to do just to get my car fixed they just seem to not give rats.I find it very disappointing concidering they make such a nice car.
Anyone got the answer

This ticking noise is intolerable .
I don't know what I am going to do ?
Car is still pretty new 1500 km ,but has ticked and flutter right around the driving rpm and throttle position .
First trip to Nissan ,and they can't hear much of a problem ,They say they heard it faintly and advised bring back leaving overnight so it is cold for testing , I believe it is much louder when cold , when ever your coasting down hill you get this weird noise sort of what I'd say a fluttering butterfly valve noise .opening then closing very rapidly ,it almost the opposite of the acceleration noi...
Hideous ticking noise on acceleration and deceleration...
Hideous ticking noise on acceleration and deceleration, can't believe Nissan make such crap in this day and age with such advanced technology available... Oh and if you think you can ask service about it, forget it as their standard line is its "normal" for the engine to make that noise!!! And its normal diesel engine sound!!! Rubbish, I've owned diesels all my life and they don't sound like an old cattle truck the day you drive it off the lot....
June 3rd 2018 Update: Injector rattle
Insane injector rattle... Worst car ever...... The inj...ector rattle will drive you crazy!!!!! It's embarrassing when you have passengers..... Can't wait to sell it and tell everyone I know how bad it is.. oh and don't think service will fix it, standard reply is "it's normal" .. shame on you Nissan.... DO NOT buy a Navara........
Couldn't drive anything else
I love everything about my navara, the new coil spring suspension made it an easy choice for me, it has a great driving position it doesn't do as good on fuel as it use it but still reasonable at 10.5L per 100kms
My only complaints is that there is very little storage internal and the plastics on the doors scratch and mark very easy which is not practical for a tradesmen!
A reasonable car. But feeling dated
I've done 20,000 ks in 7 months in my STX. And I gave come to the conclusions of.
. Great on fuel. Averaging around 8.3 lph
. Mines a 7 speed auto, and the Transmision is nice for a big car.
. The engine lacks torque compared to the Colorado ltz I had, but it is alittle more refined. Although I'd still rather the Colorados engine.
. The entertainment system including the Satnav is absolutely rubbish in todays day and age.
Comfy for a cab chassis
The best turning circle eva no horrid noise in full lock!The interior is awesome very car like., all the bells and whistles and mine is the standard 2x4 DX, plenty of legroom and power windows. l highway travel to work 40 km so I set the cruise control and do a tank of fuel in 6 days.it lacks get up and go when towing a reasonable load so being a 6 gear petrol traveling in 6th is awfully sluggish. Bit all n all I love my ute. Thank you Nissan
Questions & Answers
Hi. I have a new 2020 Navara ST D23 series 4. There is no battery sense module on the negative terminal and I am wondering if the vehicle has a smart or variable voltage alternator. I am fitting a dc2dc charger to a hybrid camper I’ll be towing and it will make a difference when installing an Anderson plug
