Nissan Navara 2016 Problems
No car is perfect, but we've gathered everything relating to the Nissan Navara 2016 reliability here to help you decide if it's a smart buy.
Nissan Navara 2016: Fair price
It’s at the high end of the range, but it seems fair.
Nissan Navara 2016: Sump leak
Unless it’s a massive leak that drains the oil from the engine, which is most unlikely, it won’t affect the engine.
Nissan Navara: ST and ST-X upgrades
We contacted Nissan seeking answers to your questions.
We didn't get anything on upcoming upgrades, so can't help you there, but they did give us some information on bullbars that might help you. "There are two genuine accessories bullbars available for the current-model Nissan Navara: aluminium and steel. Both have been locally developed (which included crash-testing) and the Navara retains its 5-star ANCAP safety rating when either of these genuine Nissan bullbars is fitted. An authorised Nissan dealer can fit either of these genuine accessories bullbars. Heavier-rate front suspension springs are needed with the steel bullbar due to its weight. This is to ensure the vehicle performs as designed, in terms of both driving and safety, when this additional weight is added to the front of the vehicle."
Nissan Navara: Comfortable diesel ute?
Today's utes are all more comfortable than the boneshakers of old, but they still ride relatively hard because of the load they have to carry. The high-end models are generally more comfortable than the lower level models aimed more at the tradie, so perhaps look at those. If you're not concerned about brand, consider the Nissan Navara.
Grand Cherokee, Navara, Everest or Hilux for towing?
The Navara and HiLux would be out, for me, because they are utes and you shouldn't be buying a truck just because it can tow well. The Grand Cherokee is a great drive but I also hear lots of complaints, so the Everest — engineered in Australia and based on the classy Ford Ranger ute — would be my pick as the smart choice.
