Nissan Navara 2012 Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Nissan Navara 2012 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Which 4x4 Dual Cab ute should I buy?

    The very fact that you’re looking at two vehicles that fit into your budget but have travelled such vastly different distances should tell you all you need to know about the Nissan. Frankly, the Navara D22 and D40 don’t age well. In fact, many owners have found out the hard way that a Navara just can’t match the Toyota HiLux of this vintage for longevity and the ability to cop punishment over time.

    I’m certainly not saying that the HiLux was perfect, but compared with the Navara’s litany of faults and problems that covered everything from rattling timing chains to coolant leaks and odd design elements such as the bottom of the radiator being lower than the lowest part of the chassis cross-member (not good for off-road work) the Toyota was much better. Granted the Navara you’re considering has very low mileage, so it should be okay for a while…just about till you hand it over to your son to break.

  • Nissan Navara 2012: Differential failure

    It's unusual to have a major failure of the front diff, unless it has been left in low range four-wheel drive on the highway. If that hasn't happened I would request a full explanation of the reason the diff has failed.

  • Nissan D22 2012: Cracked radiator

    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.

  • Nissan Navara shift shudder

    We have been told the same thing, that it's the way it is set-up and that's it really. I don't believe it would be too big an ask for Nissan to have a service fix available for those people who, like you, find it annoying.
