The Nissan Navara stands out in the dual-cab ute segment by offering suspension more suited to on-road driving than hauling hay bales and towing trailers.
From a purely utilitarian workhorse to a more sophisticated all-rounder, the Nissan Navara ute has gone through a significant transformation since the nameplate first appeared in Australia more than 30 years ago.
With a number of body, engine, and transmission options, there are nearly 40 different Navara variants to choose from – the cheapest of which starts at below $30,000.
The D40 Nissan Navara was built between 2005 and 2015, and its maximum oil capacity depends on when it was built. Models built between ’05-’07 have an oil capacity of 7.6-litres, while ’07-’15 max out at 6.9-litres.
Is the Nissan Navara reliable?
The Navara has earned a good reputation of rugged reliability off the back of the D22 generation that was built in the late 1990s. The D22 is as tough as nails but doesn’t have much in the way of creature comforts. The D40 generation is much nicer inside, while retaining that reliable reputation.
New Navaras can be prone to issues such as fuel-injection failure, roof rust, premature clutch wear, electronics issues, turbo failures, and sagging rear coil springs, so it is worth getting any used cars looks at by a mechanic.
