Bullet proof engine absolutely outstanding longevity perfect runaround car.
Had this car for the last 5 years from my boss who sold it to me for $150 . cost $600 to put it on the road done now around 300Thous clicks been through Hell and Back I mean everywhere from city to Bush to high country even some 4wd tracks and its absolutely bullet proof. Just give it the old 10km yearly service and You can't go wrong I mean it will not disappoint you and never let you down .
I use it to work and it's a definite investment for cost savings very cheap to run .
Not worth buying this car. Don't waste your money
I brought this car 3 years ago from his previous in 2017..just driven to work and home in Sydney metro area mostly. Always regular service with registered mechanic. Extended warranty expired few months ago. 80k transmission failed. Mechanic told me its a common problem with this model of Nissan and second hand gearbox will cost around 4K plus $800 fitting. This car not worth buying and Nissan Australia is not helping at all to sort this. Don’t waste your money.

I brought this car two years old from his original owner in 2015.just driven to work and home in Sydney metro area mostly .always regular service with registered mechanic .Around 85000kms transmission failed.so my mechanic told me its a common problem with this model and after contacting Nissan they agreed to repair as goodwill.So beware of this model with transmission.

2014 st-s hatch Auto
Took a risk on buying this car has it was an x rental but was so cheap I decided to go for it as car came with full service history and a list of all issues it ever had. Brought her in 2017 with 45000k’s 3 years later she has now done 88000 and other than regular servicing we have not spent one extra cent on anything. The car has good power considering only 1.6, the roomiest back seat of all the hatches and uses around 8ltrs per 100k’s. So for $10000 it’s been a fantastic buy and we couldn’t be happier.
Purchased in November 2017 at Hertz Rental for $10,000.00.
Good honest car!!!
Purchased 2012 build Pulsar ST-L sedan, 6 speed manual, with 175000 klm on the clock in late January 2020.
Purpose of car is for learner driver education (driving instructor vehicle)
Bought via private sale with fair/good service history. As expected, body/paint, engine/transmission, interior all fair to good condition for age and kilometres travelled.
Everything works with no signs of misuse or abuse.
This vehicle is an everyday drive, with learner drivers operating with ease. Nothing unusual or complex to operate.
First service since buying...
Purchased in January 2020 for $6,000.00.
Beware CVT Transmission
Car is mostly driven on a freeway, family car & meticulous service history. At 160000kms the CVT transmission went on the vehicle. It has got a lot more kms than most who have CVT issues but 160000 for the trans needing to be replaced is not acceptable. Nissan haven't wanted to know about the issue, i will never purchase another Nissan again, or any vehicle that has a CVT trasmission.
Purchased in September 2018 for $12,000.00.
CVT transmission failed second time
CVT failed second time. It is a known issue to Nissan
First time they replaced the whole CVT and at that time my car was under warranty. Now it would cost be a lot. They should cover it under warranty as CVT should come with separate warranty.
This is absolute failure of Nissan but they are not fixing the issue
Purchased in June 2013 for $26,000.00.
Don't buy Nissan Pulsar Please!!! CVT failed
CVT transmission failed at 100,000km then It costs around $6000. I would read reviews before my purchase. Nissan's known fault with the CVT transmission Again please don't buy NISSAN PULSAR
Purchased in October 2017 for $10,300.00.
Reliable and well built
This has been an excellent car. The only thing that I has an issue with was the rear view mirror fell off but Nissan replaced it even thought it was out of warranty. Its not the speediest car but its reliable, safe and very economical. It has amazing handling. I would defiantly purchase a Nissan again. Only annoying thing is the stereo does not pair with IPhone contacts.
I bought a 2005 Nissan Pulsar last week with 140,168 klms on it. On the way home with it there were times it would stall and need to be restarted. This week it cant start and the compression is very low on all cylinders. What a complete piece of junk. I have always had Toyota in the past and this kind of problem will never exist with any Toyota that only has 140k on it.
I should have known better from the problems with the Navara I had, never ever ever buy a Nissan......
Excellent medium sized car for daily driver
I've owned this car from new for six years and done 190,000 km in it. Apart from an inexplicable early failure of interior heating element replaced under warranty, I've had no issues at all. Only replaced tyres, battery, windscreen due to stone chips and rear shocks. It is the most economical and super reliable car I've ever owned and at 61 years of age that's saying a lot. It's also a comfortable car for long drives and fits four adults easily. The boot is massive too. My only complaints would be it's got no pulling power if you are loaded down and climbing hills or towing but it was never built for that and the back seats don't fold down. That's it for complaints.
Bought my B17 in March 2018 2nd hand. In December the CVT transmission failed as expected at 67k. Fully replacement of transmission made by Nissan Australia under warranty.
Made to 85k in 8 months and still going.
Purchased in March 2018.
If I knew about the CVT in Nissan Pulsars B17 wouldn't of brought it.
Brought my secondhand Nissan Pulsar B17 2013 from Carzoos got a 3 year standard warranty and has to be taken to Torque to be serviced every 6 months. Driving to work the car was making a grinding sound from the motor and when I would stop and go it wouldn't change down was like it was going to stall only had the car for 18 months I have done 14,000kms. Next day rung Torque book the car in he rung said it wasn't good news it's the transmission the car had only done 115,000kms. He said to ring Nissan Service Centre rung them booked car in for Dia...gnostic Service rung me said it's not good it's the CVT and I can't drive the car said she is doing the paper work to send through to Nissan Australia. If they knew there is a fault with the CVT and put drivers at risk especially stalling and not having acceleration can be very dangerous don't think it's right maybe Nissan don't have a conscious. Waiting to hear back from Nissan!
Purchased in November 2017 at Carzoos for $11,100.00.
Great for the price but CVT went Kaput just like many others.
I used this car for almost 4 years as a commuter special and it has plenty of up and go but it didn't inspire me with 100% confidence around corners, better tyres made a big difference. Fuel Economy was 7.5 litres on mixed freeway/city driving.
It has a huge back seat which was a big plus for the kids and passengers but the negative is the boot it's a little small compared to others in the class.
It was heavily discounted as they sold quite poorly.
It was serviced every 10000ks and everything was going well until the weak link showed it's ug...

CVT failed at 67998 kms
My car is a 2014 Nissan Pulsar auto ST (B17). I live in Sydney, on 15 May 2019, on our way to Canberra, the CVT failed, car was taken to Nissan Dealer in Mos Vale. I made the Nissan Dealer aware that this particular Nissan Model had previously reported problems with the CVT. On Monday the 20 May, I was told by the Nissan Dealer that CVT has failed and Nissan Australia has accepted to replace it under warranty. I picked up the car on Saturday the 8 June. Mos Vale Nissan has done an excellent job and now I feel its like a new car with a brand new CVT. Have noticed a an improvement in fuel consumption.
Purchased in October 2015 for $15,000.00.
- Pulsar B17 (Sedan) (2013-2017)
- Verified purchase
Excellent car and price is affordable
Have been driving my pulsar for 8 months now and love it. It’s 2015 build, automatic, runs perfect and very good on fuel, only takes about 6litres per 100kms.
Spacey inside and the boot can fit a lot of things - pram, bike, other bags, e.g groceries.
Runs smooth and gets up to speed quick.

Pulsar 2013 , transmission gave up on me at 80000kms
I just use the car locally for shopping or picking up and dropping off the kids. The car is serviced every 6 months regularly . I don't do more than 13 000 KMs a year at a Toyota service centre . I only use unleaded 98 fuel , top range petrol.
The car failed in the middle of a busy road . AAMI towed it to a Nissan dealer . 2 days now and haven't heard from them other than transmission problem. Toyota gave me 5 years warranty including manufacturing warranty . It is apparently expired . The cost to replace transmission might be up to $7000.
Anything can be done about this transmission short life ? All mechanics say Nissan pulsars have a faulty transmission by nature
