100000km All the trouble starts
Had my NP 300 since new, haven't had any issues except a bit sloppy in the rear end when loaded which air bags fixed. Just clocked 100000 km and engine malfunction light came on throttle body had stripped the gears so new throttle body, then engine malfunction light comes on again back to the mechanic he tells me there is excess oil in the intercooler hose. So advice from the mechanic time to sell it before it blows up. So

Lost trust in this D23 Navara
Bought new May 2019.Stood 7 months at dealer with diff (x5), turbo, brake booster, climate control and key fob problems. Dealer repurchased from me at 9000kms. Bought a Toyota HiLux instead even though Navara has more features and better ride and fuel consumption.
Purchased in May 2019 for $30,000.00.
60 000 ks hasnt missed a beat.
Use the car every second day. Off roading casually not too much. Drives well and no issues. Except x2 of rear main seals that were covered by warranty. Its a manual and pulls good.
Purchased for $58,000.00.
Test drive all competitors.
Perfect for bush. No issues yet with 122k on clock. Steering wheel horn is a pain though. Easily bumped. I saw many reviews on all 4x4s and all where Inaccurate. The 4 coils in the bush leave the competition behind in comfort and flex. If I want to carry heavy loads how easy is it to upgrade coils to bi rated for flex and load, I mean trains use coils so they can carry the heaviest load of any wheeled machine, it's got me buggered why they still use leaf in the day and age. The power to fuel usage must be one of the best if not the best in the ...world, I mean 2 ton of vehicle having that much go and using so little fuel. I cant believe I was thinking hilux before testing them. Also 20k oil change how goods that! Although I'll do it every 10. And yes the engineers have done there home work, this motor has been around for some time now outside of Australia and has proven itself, yes I did my homework too. But on a last note I would say the best and favorite vehicle I have ever owned and awesome in the bush..apart from that bloody horn its spot on. Well done Nissan

Best ute I've owned
Purchased the 2018 D23 last year, I previously owned a Navara 4x4 D22 that I purchased new in 2010
The D23 Navara is miles ahead of the D22, Comfort, safety, performance and fuel economy.
Really nice to drive
Bought new, 2018 ST model. Now at 43000km. Haven't missed a beat so far.
Taking this on soft sand beach, the torque it produces is astonishing. Auto gearbox keeps revs well below 1500rpm ploughing through the sand. The ride comfort is the best I have felt in any ute so far. Service intervals every 24000km. Works out cheaper to service than my wife's Honda Jazz!
Watch for Oil Leaks!
I have had my 2017 NP300 RX 4x4 work vehicle since 2017 and it has now travelled 80,000km, 80% highway, 20% offroad. The NP300 is a comfortable and quiet ute on the road, and is economical. However, it is not what you call tough offroad or reliable. I have looked after the vehicle and it has been serviced by Nissan since new. Issues I have had include :
- Oil sump leaking oil (wife not happy with driveway) - Fixed by Nissan under warranty
- Fuel filler cap stopped opening
- Oil leak between engine and gearbox (approx 70,000km's) - Nissan needed...
Used in North-Midlands WA as an agronomy vehicle, commuter, boat launching and getting thrashed on gravel day-to-day. Everything holds up great even towing a 4 Tonne boat to the ramp, or towing a large trailer carting sheep. Has plenty of power to overtake on highways, just drop down a gear and let the twin turbo's do the rest. Has clocked over 200,00 k's on mainly gravel roads doing 120km/h or on farms on rough paddocks.
Very comfortable for trips to Perth (3 Hrs) and has all the fruit you would expect in a modern vehicle.
Will be buying again.
Purchased in July 2016 for $55,000.00.
Not a problem
I use this car everyday for work and use it for camping. I have 85k on the clock and it hasn't skipped a beat, I get around 850 per tank and I'm running 32" Ko2's. Really enjoy driving it and highly rate it.
Purchased in October 2017 for $43,500.00.
Great dual cab at a great price!
I've put 9000 k's on the clock in about 6 weeks including 1200k trip in one go. Found it was comfortable enough to not need a break from it. No issues what so ever! Not sure what road noise everyone is complaining about, no better or worse than my last 2 lease vehicles (Captiva and a D40). Only negatives are lack of in car storage and the advertised fuel usage is not right. Average 9 L/100

Hasn't missed a beat
Had our 2015 NP300 ST for 3 and a half years now and around 60,000K. Used as the daily commute vehicle, maybe 10 trips towing our pop top caravan (including a recent 3,000K trip), and multiple trips helping the kids move house, tip runs etc.
We had one issue right back at the start with an intercooler hose that wasn't clamped tight enough and blew off - an issue with predelivery at the wharf that was happening with the early deliveries. Other than that we have not had a single issue and very happy with the vehicle. We probably haven't had more that about 200kg load in the back - I understand big loads with the early models can be an issue with the suspension, but we havent seen any..

100,000km has been a great ute minus
Bought my ST 4x4 back in 2015 has been a great ute minus one occasion with the lh rear axel seal being deformed and weeping at 20,000km. Got this fixed under warranty however the dealership I dealt with were incredibly painful.
Just clocked up 100,000km now and the car has had no issues since. Currently has 2 inch lift with 32 inch tyres, bullbar and canopy with drawer system roof racks etc. and get 700 to 750km out of about 65 liters, not dreadful given the vehicles size and modifications.
Purchased in November 2015.
The best by far!
Done nearly 60k in just over 3 years. Extremely comfortable and tows like a demon. Would another tomorrow if the finances allowed. No real issues and mine is a May 15 build so one of the very first. Wife absolutely loves it.
Purchased in December 2015 at Parry Nissan Townsville .
The best thing in my life
I do everything with this truck towing a 18ft boat for hours down the freeway, camping, off road and daily commute and it's so comfortable for long trips long service intervals ate great engine has plenty of power to get the job done and can't even see the filuel guage move
Car went in Sept 2018 for service and oil leak.
They had to replace oil seal (apparently common problem).
My car is now back for the 4th time to fix oil leak. It is now leaking from sump and Nissan can't seem to fix it. The car is now standing there for almost a month.
Had a call from them last week that car was fixed, but when I went to pick it up, found oil leak. Told them that I am not taking the car.
Was totally set on a hilux as a toyota fan but went to nissan for a quick look. The price point and features completely sold it for me. The coil springs while under a bit of scrutiny are fantastic and feels like your driving a car and doesnt bounce all over the place. Drivers assists, and looks amd standard tub liner all suckered me in. Absolutley love it for what i want it for.
Cabin noises from engine
Disappointed cabin noise to loud to have a conversation
Just hit the 1000 ready for first service
Went for a four hour drive .stopped and didnt want to drive any further. The noise from the engine left my ears ringing. Noise causes stress stress causes fatigue. Fatigue causes accidents
Will be talking about this at the first service
This car has been excellent. We are recreational users and have just completed two long trips and the vehicle is great on the road, comfortable for a truck with a car like interior, excellent space and has fulfilled expectations. Over 17000 km in six months. Of course long term reliability yet to be established.
On the negative-Like other companies Nissan needs to get out of the GPS business- Apple Carplay would be much better. Nav is serviceable but we often defer to google maps on the phone. A light on the key barrel would be great and easy to add.
Great 4x4 ute with all the luxuries
Used for every day road use and on the farm. I cant fault my 2018 nissan 4x4 np300 navara.
Its just about to hit 5000kms and so far its handeled everyrhing in its stride,from citt stop start traffic, it averages 8ltrs to the 100, on the open country roads the best ive had it 6ltrs to the 100.
Ive jad the back loaded with literally a ton of weight as well as towing a ton and you dont even feel the difference.
The twin turbos help with the pull and once through second gear its breezes.
It can seem a little noisy when cauising through firs...
Very happy with our decision to purchase the NP300. Great value and service from Ferntree Gully Nissan. My only complaint is that the car does not have iso fix points for car seats, but as long as you don’t mind the old school method of securing them then they fit perfectly. Love my Nav
Questions & Answers
I have a 2016 stx nav and I can’t seem to get the outside temperature on it, how do I turn it on or does it just not have one
Hi just wanting to know if you can put the new headlights with the day time driving lights into a 2015 np300?
Howdy, the ute has developed a serious lack of power below 3000 rpm .. am I looking at a blown turbo?
