I took my 2012 Nissan D22 4x4 on sand and ended up with a cracked radiator after a creek crossing and some wild bumps. Nissan claims that the independent front suspension on modern 4x4s is at fault. Is that right?
I wouldn't have thought that the independent suspension would be the cause, but whatever the cause is I wouldn't expect the radiator to crack to early. I would be pressing Nissan for a replacement.
