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

Oil Leak Rear end
Car drives fine upgraded the suspension to pedders suspension. (Due to Front Bull bar nosediving) x2 warranty claims on read end seal covered. 2nd time around the oil leaked on rear end brake shoes which also had to get replaced at same time. (Due to safety precautions) I don't get how new cars with 40 000 ks have leaking issues... They seem to not make cars as they use too.. other than that can't fault it. Drives well on road and off road. Fuel no where near what they advertise though is not good advertising information when is not possible.

Nissan fobbing off older NP300's
Vehicle returned from dealer, no fault found for worn rack mount bushes, but only 200 metres on odometer after drop off to pick up! Obviously no road test. Told they have had 3 NP300's in from my wheel aligner, same fault. Okay, truck 6 weeks out of warranty, but problem not picked up at final service, not at 60,000 k's either yet. Vehicle serviced at required intervals by dealers, I change the oil every 5,000 k's & filter every 10k.
If they give the series 2, 3, & 4 5 year warranty, are they making money from the early model in repairs?

Not as off road tough as they advertise
2018 St-x, vehicle was towing a 13ft hybrid camper van. Van weight was approximately 2t with the gear it had in it and the ball load was measured at 185kgs loaded.
The van was towed through a soft sand section of around 50 meters and then another 5kms of hard packed sand. After pulling up to enter a campsite, it was noticed that the chassis had bent.
When returned to the Nissan dealer and inspected, their decision was that they would not cover it under warranty due to it being off road.
I’m sure everyone has seen the tv ads with Ute being loaded with slabs of concrete, off road tracks etc. just beware, you may not be covered
Traded the BT50 for a NP300 Navara...
Feeling underwhelmed. Traded a BT50 XTR for a 2018 NP300 ST-X. It looks good, love the leather and sunroof but feeling underwhelmed overall.
- Seriously lacks power, especially when wanting to overtake on single lanes.
- Fuel economy is far higher than what was listed on the windscreen.
- feels very top heavy when cornering and frustrating when you feel the cab roll out of corners.
- gearbox is crunchy, and even more so when you try and shift gears quickly. Delay your change out of first and it settles slightly.
- sound system lol ...

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.

My third Navara; it's a curious experience..
Having had a Nissan Navara ST-X petrol, an ST-X-550 diesel and now an STX 2.3 litre twin turbo diesel, all crew cabs, I'm not exactly sure what I have this time. It appears to be the first of a new generation of 4WDs: built lightly (or it appears to be) and a "small" high performance diesel engine.
What does Nissan seem to have fixed since the last Navara?
- they fixed up the bouncing, slumping loose rear end when cornering. The car now handles really well although seems to be lighter, missing some weight on really uneven roads.
- and ...
Worst car ever!
Rubbish car rubbish service no warranty back up Blackburn Nissan only want your money then shaft you and make excuses ignore calls. !! Avoid like plague as an ex mechanic the reliability of the vehicle is very poor not to mention cheap thin paint that chips at the gust of wind let alone stones.
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
Awesome Ute - reliable
I bought this Ute about two and half years ago and has been awsome. Used a daily drive and also week end leasure off roading.
Ute is serviced every 15-20k Only issue I have had was the reverse camera darkening and flipping. Replaced under warranty thanks to Nissan Ipswich. Happy days.
Update.It has now at 63k in the Ute with no issues to reports still drives the same when I first bought it. Can’t fault it.
Great ute at an affordable price
This is my second np300 stx there are a usless 4x4 standard. However a excellent daily drive. At 51k driveway there great value considering 3 years later got 38k for mine and only paid 45k
I think at the end of the day you lose 7k over 3 years is too bad and done 60000kms.

VIBRATION ISSUE - 2017 NAVARA ST-X
Purchased new in Jan 2018, vibration from the very first day, thinking it was tyre pressure or being new it will disappear as it wears in. Appears at low speeds & constant through to higher speeds, first reported at 2,300k now 8,500, had it to them 3 occasions they balanced it, changed drive shaft, swapped rims & tyres from another Navara but problem persists. It’s with them now for approx 3 weeks & not resolved as yet SO FRUSTRATING. Can feel vibration in seats & body ITS TERRIBLE hate driving it. Apparently it’s a production issue which Nissan will never admit to & WHY WOULD THEY. I have read many post / forums & it is a common issue - recommend if your considering purchase then think again, do not DONT BUY.
Suspected turbo oil leak
I recently noticed oil spots on my driveway and occasionally smelled burning oil and smoke out of the engine bay. Booked my navara for check up with the dealer. Hope everything goes Okay. Would write the review later after the dealer inspection. The ute has only done 15000k. The car has been serviced by the same dealer just 3 weeks ago.
Vibration and fuel consumption
The vehicle vibrates at 88 km to 110km from day one .. it has been in for service 4 times and the sevuice manager is also feeling the vibration .. they can’t fix it .. first they blamed the rims and tires that was supplied by them as a upgrade. We been 3 times for wheel balancing and alignment nothing worked. Then Nissan fitted original tires again nothing the vehicle vibrates through the front seats and mores visable when taking bends on highway driving. Feels like your in a vibrating machine.. terrible . Then they suggested I add a app on my...phone to test vibration.. as they tried to tell me it was exceptable .. so I did my on testing and it was shown a it wasn’t within giudlines. I have Nissan customer care and the dealer ship trying to say it’s normal. I’m not excepting it as they have said it was a problem with this series .. when I first brought it to there attention. Also we have had the manifold changed at 10,000 km as it was a known problem and haven’t made it aware to the public as yet. As for fuel consumption I’m getting 11.8 km per 100km which is terrible and that is suburb driving no where near the 7.9 combined .

30000 on the clock and no problems yet
I upgraded from a Nissan D40. I liked the exterior styling, and the SUV style interior. Certainly an improvement over the D40 interior. I hated the factory suspension, it was way to soft, and the front end bounced when going over bumps. I've been told it has been changed in later models. I put after market suspension on it and it's fantastic now, it handles better than the D40 and other utes I drive for work. If you are thinking of buying an early version of the NP300 you might want to consider that.
It has great fuel consumption, I can...
What a bucket of crap
Buyer beware of car and company. I recently bought an upgraded Nissan Navara from a dealership (dealership upgrades) and the thing is a danger on the road. Vibrates, loud and just unpleasant. Nissan Australia want nothing to do with it, Dealership wants nothing to do with it - there blaming each other and you won’t get anywhere. If you want to buy a 50+ vibrator - go for it.
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!
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
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...
