I agree the nissan a more comfortable car like ride which is fine if you use it as a car but as a truck (which is what they are) the ranger is better, it is better under load and carries more, it is better at towing, it is better off road, it can wade through 800mm of water (deep!!!) oh and don't forget the first pick up truck with a 5 star ncap rating! And the ranger looks great!! So if you want a car buy a nissan, if you want a truck buy a ranger (lol) (y)
Had a ranger a couple of years ago but didn’t get on with it. A very hard uncomfortable ride and a bit cumbersome round corners. Had the Tekna version of the new Navara for a couple of years and find it much smoother and pleasant to drive. 5 year warranty on the Nissan is a bonus. Worth paying a bit more for the Tekna version. Bit cheaper here
When was the recall, last I heard Nissan had not recalled these Navaras and were dealing with complaints case by case. There is a massive group of owners who were last I read making a claim through a firm of scolicitors. I heard Nissan have been repairing vehicles, replacing chasis, implimenting preventative measures and even buying affected vehicles back from affected owners but I don’t think there has been a recall.
Massive main dealer recall on the older shape model,chassis rusting out and some being painted under warranty and others being written off.Hopefully as mentioned already problem now sorted.
Yep, I had one 2006 nice truck but I sold it when 3 years old before any mention of chasis problems. If i Bought another I’d only keep it 2 or 3 years anyway. If your worried just get it filled up with waxoil. Ranger is a better truck anyway
