Nissan Navara 2014 Problems
No car is perfect, but we've gathered everything relating to the Nissan Navara 2014 reliability here to help you decide if it's a smart buy.
Nissan Navara 2014: Oil leak
There’s no rule about when cars should or shouldn’t need repair. That Nissan has offered you a deal to cover half the cost of a replacement turbocharger is tantamount to an admission that the turbocharger shouldn’t have failed at that distance. If you feel that Nissan’s offer isn’t up to scratch take them to VCAT.
Nissan Navara 2014: Dimensions
I'm not sure what dimensions you are looking for, but it's 5296 mm long, 1848 mm wide, 1795 mm high, the wheelbase is 3200 mm, the front track is 1570 mm, the rear track is 1570 mm, its kerb weight is 2017 kg, gross mass is 2805 kg and its braked towing capacity is 3000 kg.
Which dual cab ute should I buy?
The new HiLux and Triton will arrive in the first half of next year. If you're planning a five-year run for your new ute it would be worth waiting to see how the pecking order changes once they're in place.
Nissan Navara 2007: Known issues
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.
Ranger, Amarok, Navara or Colorado?
The Ranger gets The Tick and is a clear winner from the Amarok. The all-new Navara is not even close. But we're expecting a new Mitsubishi Triton and Toyota HiLux in the first half of 2015, so check back nearer then.
Nissan Navara: Twisted chassis
Talk to the dealer and request that Nissan send a tech rep to inspect the car with you, and then work out a plan of action for Nissan to address your concerns. Nissan cannot walk away from the problem; you are perfectly entitled to demand they fix the car. If it can't be fixed, then I think you have good justification for asking for your money back.
Nissan Navara D40 sump plug gasket
It is an often reported problem with the Navara. It's too late to fix your car, but it's important that the sump plug gasket is replaced every time the oil is changed, and that the plug is not cross-threaded when installed, which could have happened at a previous service on your car causing it to jam in the thread, and that it is not over-tightened.
