1986 Nissan Hardbody Pickup LXI Z24I
This truck makes me NOT want a new truck.
Three failed water pumps 100,000 175,000 and 250,00 miles respectively.
Transmission bearings and clutch replaced at 170,000 miles.
Replaced the speedometer at 90,000 miles.
Exhaust manifold has been cracked for four years but doesn't seem to be getting worse.
Many times throughout the 13 years I've owned this truck I have overloaded and overworked it. It ALWAYS runs.
The fuel economy isn't great, around 19mpg, but I can count on it to be the same no matter how much of a load I put on it.
This pickup is one of the few vehicles that I can still repair myself. Transmission, electrical, or whatever else needs repair.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
