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.
Purchased in September 2015 at Nepean Motor Group for $62,000.00.
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.
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
Great car and great service
I tested all the competing utes and drive a new Hilux ute for work. This is a great car - and super convenient for carrying the kids stuff around.
During my first 6 months I had some minor gremlins - including the fuel filler nozzle and the lining on the drop down tailgate. Both times - easily and quickly repaired by Nissan
Couple of glitches but overall Good car.
Driving and power of the twin turbo engine are amazing.
Handling is very good
Nice and comfortable ute.
Very dissapointed that Nissan missed putting ambient temperature sensor in the car, yet did not hear any excuses for that glitch.
Stoping and braking there is a noise coming from the back of the ute, nissan tells me it is gear box kicking in neutral and it is very noisy.
Very good on fuel but fuel gauge is not very accurate.
Overall its good reliable car with couple of glitches
I love the car this np300 have a 22ft Jayco Heritage 2.5ton & it tows effortlessly, just had 10000 klm oil change don't iike 20000 klm to long I think, my guy at ultra tune tells me I have an oil weep from the rear main any one else come across this, other little issues seem to be common with fuel & so on but all in all I like this vehicle
rear tub leaking
I have an issue with leaking as well. I had a canopy and drawers fitted before I picked up the vehicle. First time I drove it in the rain the trays were soaked to the point where you could slap your hand on the carpet and it would splash water. I took it back to the dealer who told me that the trays were not Nissan (TJM) and that if I wanted them to look at the leaking then I would have to remove the trays first as the problem was most likely incompetent installation of the trays causing damage. When I had a close look myself I discovered that ...at the front of the tub there are holes, or more accurately two holes and a slot, manufactured into the tub forward of the rear wheel at the very top of the wheel arch, put a torch on the rear wheel point up and forward and you can see the light when you are inside the tub, when driving the water was spraying up off the tyres and coming straight into the tub. Took it back to the dealer who told me that it was my problem. I used expander foam and silastic to seal the holes. I suggest you check these out as well as it will certainly allow dust in to the back. February 17th 2017 Update: Good vehicle but it could be better The vehicle is a pleasure to drive, Seats are very comfortable front and back, especially the heated seats in winter, the leg room in the back is good. I regularly carry 2 to 3 good sized blokes in the back without any bitching. The leather seats get a hammering but they are standing up better than any other vehicle I have ever had. Engine is superb. Very quite with lots of power, tows extremely well. Gearbox ratios suit my driving style well, you get the feeling 1st is a bit low until you are towing, then you really appreciate it, especially up hill, off road in 4WD. The sun roof is worth its weight in gold, on hot days I leave it popped at the back with the rear internal window open and the car stays at ambient temperature. After a days work 4 to 5 sweaty smelly blokes can be hard to take in the confines of a car but with the sun roof popped you don't notice it. The air conditioning really works well and cools the car quickly even with the sun roof popped. After 32000K the fuel average is 7.6L/100k, this includes city / country general driving, towing both trailers (regularly) and caravan 2000k aprox trip and off road use. A mate has the same vehicle in auto and is running at 10.1 after similar use. We went on holiday together towing our caravans (same make and model of Van) and his comment was the auto did not know what gear it wanted to be in and kept constantly changing up and down gears. He has the same issue towing his work trailer around Sydney. He was up around 18L/100k on the trip while my manual was at 9.2. Both wives and all the kids had no problems with space or comfort. Downsides, Suspension had to be replaced at 6000k. It is way to soft to carry a fitted canopy, draws, tools and regular passengers, If you are a tradie like me then you need to factor in a suspension upgrade ($1870) within the first 6 months. GPS is years out off date, for example the hunter expressway was opened 4 years ago and the map shows you driving through paddocks. Makes navigating around new suburbs really hard. The rest of the software is good, especially the blue tooth. The 12V power outlets are good and get a lot of use, especially the one in the back which runs a car fridge round the clock. Steering is positive and the turning circle good for a 4WD. Rear tub leaks badly through manufactured holes put there for some unknown reason, it was OK after sealing which I had to do myself as Nissan refused. If you are going to get trays fitted then seal the holes first as its a absolute pain in the you know where to do it afterwards. Not suited for heavy off road use as the tow bar drags and gets caught up and the large bonnet seriously restricts you vision when approach obstacles. The ground clearance under the vehicle was OK just the towbar let it down. I took the opportunity to raise the vehicle when I did the suspension and it has fixed some of the issues with the towbar off road but increased the problem with the bonnet. For medium type stuff it went well. It eats up soft sand due to the power of the motor. On dirt roads it is very stable and mud is not a problem provided you have the skills required to drive in it. On Balance I really like the Navarra, My wife prefers to drive it over her Commodore. The only real issue is the GPS and its a disgrace that Nissan sell a 2016 vehicle with what must be 2012 vintage software. The suspension was disappointing but given the gear I carry not unexpected. My mate is selling his as he has had enough of the automatic gearbox. He says it is OK empty but as soon as you load it up it cant seem to work out what gear it should be in leaving it either revving its head off our bogging down. I will be keeping mine.
Looking good so far
10,000k on the clock and no drama's so far. I had a 2011 STX D40 for 5 years before I brought the NP300 STX and the NP300 beats it hands down on looks and comfort. Can't tell you about overall reliability as it is still new but I'm hoping it's as good as the D40 as I didn't have 1 fault in 5 years but I did service it every 10,000
Better overall finish and looks than the D40
Great driving lights
Seats are better and offer more comfort for short and long drives
Better suspension - I have upgraded to 2" Old Man Emu lift kit as I have a bull bar and winch
Sat Nav in STX - Software is 3 years old but it still works well
Better noise protection in cab ...
