Nissan Navara 2013 Problems
No car is perfect, but we've gathered everything relating to the Nissan Navara 2013 reliability here to help you decide if it's a smart buy.
Nissan Navara 2013: Flat battery
I suspect that it’s the battery, that there’s not enough charge to crank the engine and provide the spark to fire it. Have the battery checked.
Nissan Navara 2013: Can I replace the media system?
It wouldn’t be a straight forward take one out and put another in sort of job, it would fiddly, but I’m sure it could be done. Look around for a specialist in that area.
Nissan Navara 2013: Suspension too soft
The explanation you've been given doesn't sound right to me.
It needs further investigation and I would suggest you take it to a suspension specialist and have them give you a report on it.
Even though the warranty has expired I would believe you have a reasonable claim against Nissan on two grounds. First, you initially reported it while the car was still under warranty, and second, if the suspension is faulty as Nissan seems to be suggesting you could claim that it is unfit for purpose under our consumer laws.
That is providing you operate within the Navara's load and towing limits.
Nissan Navara D22 2013: Differential failure
We don't have any specific information that might be of use to you, but I would suggest you seek the advice of a differential service. I'm sure they would be able to tell you of any other failures they have seen, and probably give you an opinion on the failure of yours.
Nissan Navara 2013: High oil consumption
Ask them, why, if it's normal that they want you to take it back every 1000km. That's not normal. It's clearly using oil and they are clearly checking it to see how much it is using. Quiz them about the reasons for the check, and what they plan to do about fixing the car.
Nissan Navara: Servicing experience
That's bloody ridiculous. Nissan has a responsibility to fix your car, and while they do appear to be trying, they have failed abysmally. You have given them enough time, it would seem that you have been very patient, so I would recommend that you step up the pressure on the dealer and Nissan itself. Demand a timetable for the repairs, ask them why they haven't called in specialist help, even from Japan, and consider demanding a replacement car. I am usually loath to recommend asking for a replacement car, but I think in this case you would be justified in demanding a new car. If, as I expect, they refuse, press for a temporary replacement car while they find out what's wrong with yours.
Nissan Navara: Faulty battery
That's a tricky one. Nissan's warranty doesn't cover the battery because it's regarded as a consumable, but the battery itself is covered by a warranty issued by its manufacturer. So, who's responsible when the battery is faulty? I would suggest it's Nissan in the first instance because they sold you the vehicle, the battery maker next as they produced it. Nissan should have replaced the battery and got their money back from the battery maker instead of putting the responsibility back on you as the customer.
Nissan Navaras drive vibration
The vibration you refer to is caused by the torque converter locking up at too low a speed. It's done for fuel economy, but I reckon Nissan has got it wrong in this occasion. They might say they have had few complaints about it, but I bet there are lots of owners out there putting up with it because their dealers have told them it's "normal".
Issue with Nissan dealership
What you should take away from this experience is that not all dealers are the same. You should have gone looking for another dealer to do your work a long time ago, one that is closer to your home than the one in Warrnambool. In terms of the servicing of your vehicle, you can get it done at any competent mechanic, providing it is done according to Nissan's schedule. Repairs, however, would need to be done by a Nissan dealership if you wanted them covered by Nissan. If you want to pursue Nissan for lost earnings, then take legal action.
Nissan Navara STX loud noise
I suspect you could be correct. I would certainly get the injectors checked.
