Basically the Nissan Vanette is a good alround small van, cheap to buy, cheap to run, but not really
I lost the master key, and was told after market keys don't always work. So I bought one from the Nissan dealer for £195.
Driver's seat base has split on the off side.
The paint on the door is all scratched where the seat belt flies back when unlocked.
I've got through 2 sets of heater plugs, but that's the only thing that's ever gone wrong with engine.
The engine RPM seems too high for the speed the van is travelling at. It almost feels as if it should have a 6 speed gearbox.
When doing anything more than about 50 mph, it's almost impossible to hold a conversation with the passenger for engine noise.
All the plastic trims have broken by the loading doors; should have been made of aluminium.
As far as load carrying capacity, apart from 1 metre cubes, I think I could get more stuff in my old Mondeo estate car, and I didn't need a permit with the car to go to the local tip, to get rid of house hold waste (which really does annoy me)!!!
I like the ride height, it feels as if you're high up in a truck, but you are not.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
