Nissan Navara 2007: Known issues

Answered by CarsGuide 3 Oct 2014

The kilometres done are about what you would expect a vehicle of that age would have done, but the price is high. I would think $13,000 to $15,000 is more reasonable. With a 3000 kg towing rating it would comfortably tow your caravan. The things to be aware of are low clutch life and high cost to replace them, and failures of the cam timing chain. The latter is generally put down to poor maintenance, so make sure yours has a credible service record showing regular oil changes.

Nissan Navara 2007: Fuel injector reliability

Answered by CarsGuide 13 Jun 2014

Injector wear is a problem with all common-rail diesels, not just the Nissan. You should be able observe rough running, perhaps black smoke from the exhaust, and high fuel consumption. The chip won't be causing your ticking noise; that will be a mechanical noise. You need to determine where the noise is coming from to be able to locate the cause. One thing I would be looking at the camshaft timing chain, they wear and sometimes break on the Navara, and that's one possible source of your ticking noise.

D40 Navara snapped timing chain

Answered by CarsGuide 9 May 2014

The ute is seven years old, a Nissan dealer hasn't serviced it, and you don't say how many kilometres it has done, so it's hard to make a judgment on the validity of your claim. The only thing I would suggest is that you attempt to convince Nissan to change its mind and come good with their goodwill assistance.

Navara windscreen paint peeling

Answered by CarsGuide 2 Aug 2013

We haven't had any other reports of paint peeling off on Navaras, but we note there are lots of reports of the problem overseas. I would certainly put it on Nissan to repair your car. If you want backup you could talk to a paint specialist like Graeme Cuthbert on 0422 444 335.

Power loss at upper rev

Answered by CarsGuide 18 Jul 2012

I can understand why you would think it's dangerous. We haven't had any other reports of this issue, so can't say that it's widespread as you claim, but it's something that needs to be addressed on your vehicle at the very least. It would not appear to be a problem of the vehicle going into a limp-home mode, as you would expect a warning light to come on. That said, switching the car off and on again usually reboots the computer and eliminates the problem. I would suggest it's a fuel supply problem, perhaps the pickup that the dealer is suggesting, or even the fuel pump or injectors.

Navara injector

Answered by CarsGuide 7 Jun 2012

We haven't been alerted to the injector problem, so it's something else Navara owners should be listening for. With all the problems occurring today, you could conclude that carmakers have been cutting costs.
