2012 Nissan Navara Standard 2.5 turbo diesel from Malaysia
Power steering oil leak, engine oil leak at drain hole, flywheel broken, suspension noise despite change the absorber mounting.
Not reliable, high maintenance cost, and the low body is not suitable for off road use.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

You don't even say how it drives, off road handling, fuel economy etc. I know of people with similar models, but they are quite happy with their ride. Your car must be a lemon.

I have been driving my D40 since Feb 2012. Almost 7 years now.
1. What I have done:
a. Body lift 2.5 inches.
b. Suspension lift approximately 1.5 inches + OEM spring lift.
c. 33” or 35” tires.
d. Regularly a medium to medium hardcore off-road in a tropical environment.
2. Here are what I have gone through:
a. Turbo fan cracked because I wrongly fitted a K&N air filter (not oiled). Hence dust entered and damaged the turbine blade (not the manufacturer’s fault).
b. Speed sensor faulted ONCE and lost 4 wheel engagement. Will be restored after the mud has dried.
c. Alternator bearing (finally the wear and tear issue) broke and the flywheel dislodged - replaced 2 bearings, 1 shaft and belting.
Other than that, absolutely nothing. It has the power and torque. Suspension is the best in its class. Off road performance is excellent.
I have driven my D40 to Cambodia from Kuala Lumpur (2500 km one way) on 4 occasions and twice to Phnom Penh.
Numerous trips to Thailand.
100s of genuine hard medium to occasional hardcore off-roading.
It outperforms all other models.
