1993 Nissan Hardbody Pickup Navara 3.0 V6 petrol/LPG


A ripper really, considering!


Fuel pump failed @ 240,000Km - replaced with an external Holden unit ($550 cheaper).

Lower ball joints and Castor bar bushes @ 300,000Km. Shockers @ 325,000Km.

Front brake pads @ 335,000Km, rears soon!

1 x Injector replaced @ 390,000Km others removed and cleaned.

Water pump seized @ 418,000Km.

Rear spring shackle bushes @ 427,000Km.

Starter motor @ 428,000Km.

Gearbox getting noisy now in 3rd and 5th gears.

Drivers seat collapsed a while ago!

Some rust appearing in rear body, and door window trim area.

General Comments:

Engine has had no repairs since new, runs like a dream, blows no smoke, starts first time hot or cold. I always use full synthetic oils, change engine oil @ 20,000Km, BUT I change filters every 5000Km. I Generally use Shell Helix Ultra.

Lots of squeaks and rattles!

Bad draught from vent in drivers door trim!

Occasionally blows instruments fuse, which stops alternator charging the battery!

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
