There has been, mainly holes blown in no 3 or 4 piston. Although there is sill plenty getting around that have had no problems, some with high mileage.have a look on the patrol forum website plenty of info there.

Blue....the key to his post was 2007. The GU1 & 2 issues have been done to death on this forum and others.

If its a 2007 I am guessing it is the "Common Rail " engine which had very few problems .
If it has a service history that will tell a story. If you can find out its towing history that will help
Many of these cars were used to tow weights sometimes beyond what they were capable of and thats when the engine damage was done

2007 is the same ZD30 direct injection as earlier models. I'm told nissan did a few mod's on these latter engines?

The common rail ones still go bang. Have a good read through patrol4x4.com. Particularly the ZD30 sub-forums of the GU section.

I reckon if you read through the patrol4x4.com ZD30 sub-forums of the GU section you'll find about one or two CRD's that have gone bang. And pretty much unconfirmed if there detonations were for the same reasons as ZD30's.

They don't have the same holing of piston issues that the original ZD30 had. Having said that they come with a whole other range of drama's thats have already been pointed out here.

Check out to find if it has a new clutch installed. The original duall mass flywheel clutches are rubbish.

What about the chassis cracking, the rear door cracking, the front diff housing cracking, the compressor pulley bearing going noisy, intercoolers leaking and.......
apart from thoses thing and the engine they are fine.

Nothing wrong with the truth, Toyota have had a few problems too...... Difference is Toyota seem to fix their problems.

We buy cars that suit our needs and we are not loyal to any brand.

Just some are made better than others!

Hi Spanderman, I'll attempt to give you a clear answer. The 3 Litre engine has had it's problems, it can self destruct. Without pre judging the vehicle your looking at given it has already done 200,000KM's the thousand dollar question is how many KM's does it have left? 50,000?? As mentioned above check the service history, was it doing fairly heavy towing? One can only try to do normal due dilligence on the vehicle to ascertain if it will be a viable purchase going forward? Have the vehicle tested, engine tested etc and consider the purchase price as you are buying a vehicle that has the potential to cost money as it gets toward the end of it's life span.
