Everyone gets a window seat

The patrol was the best fit for our family at the time of purchase in 2020.

It has adequate space to carry all the family’s things comfortably while towing our camper trailer too.

The patrol has reasonable fuel economy on the highway but likes a drink in stop start traffic.

The patrol is so much more vehicle when compared with the Ute based SUV’s and is considerably cheaper than the Landcruiser.

Very happy with the patrol after three years of ownership, no issues mechanically so far. Show details

far better than toyota

Had a lc200, bought new in 2015 pre dpf, i wont own a diesel with a dpf as they all cause issues so went to Patrol as petrol
its a far better vehicle, uses less fuel than the LC200 which surprised me, towing 2500kg van with lc200 used 25l per 100, towing a 3300kg van with patrol uses 23l per 100, its fast t handles well and i saved 35k from toyotas overpriced crap---the modern diesel is so choked to death, youll have dpf issues, you need catch cans, you have high pressure fuel pump issues, turbo issues, injector issues, the Patrol is under stressed, non turbo, and simple and reliable, oh and that V8 sound with a good exhaust is amazing i would buy again Show details

Love my Patrol!

I was tossing up between the landcruiser and Patrol and chose the Patrol for the amazing value for money and the power it has! The landcruiser is like driving a boat compared to this weapon.
Yes we did a tune up and put some bigger tires on but we still saved around $60k going with the Nissan over the Toyota. It’s the best decision we have ever made. I have never really loved any of my cars and upgrade every 2 years. I don’t want to ever get rid of my patrol it’s my pride and joy! Show details

Paint Quality, Poor service

Never been off road or on a beach/sand. Massive issue with paint flaking off EVERY panel even inside door jams. Some came off with a garden hose. Has rust on 3 doors as well. Car is 3yrs old and Nissan have denied it’s an issue. They said it’s caused by external sources. Would NEVER buy another Nissan unless it’s in writing from the dealer that this will be covered under warranty. Show details

Love my Patrol

This is our family car and work vehicle
We use our car every day. Very economical
The fact that it only needs servicing twice a year is a financial help
Highly recommend Show details

Quite comfy and that V8 :)

Bought new in april and have put 10k kms on it, gets used on road and off road! Love it!
Around town averages 14.5ltrs per 100, out on the open roard averages 12ltrs per 100.
It feels very nimble for a large car, there has been a few rattles and squeaks in interior but nothing to hard to fix..
Offroad its very capable, all the different modes and diff lock is very handy..
Very happy with the buy.. Show details

Poor Quality Paint and Factory Tyres

After owner a land cruiser for last 10 years I made the change and regretting it already after 20,000kms. Going through the forums and from my experience Nissan Patrols paint is not up to Australian conditions unless you don't ever take it of the bitumen. Paint chips everywhere and Nissan can't explain. seems like a common issue. Also factory tyres are shot after 20,000kms and need replacing again. Alignments all in spec but no explanation or acknowledgment from Nissan, There customer service team are useless. Buyers beware! Show details

Helen · Y62 Ti-L (2013-2024)

Hi I was wondering if anyone knows if my Nissan patrol y62 has factory wired CarPlay or Apple car play please. I’ve checked the manual which doesn’t really specify. If it doesn’t could I use a wireless CarPlay adaptor

No carplay or android auto
But the Bluetooth works very well for your music, i don't miss android auto as the system works fine

Hi thanks for your reply. Do you think a wireless CarPlay adaptor would work. I have a iPhone 14 and I don’t really like the maps and other features through the radio/phone

Dose anyone no if the current model extractors and cats would fit a 2014 model?

Hey there, in the Ti-L can the kids watch different shows on their screens? Or both have to watch the same? Has anyone figured how to get content off phones/iPads?

They have to watch the same thing. There’s only 1 DVD player, just with the 2 screens :-)
