I am about to have a 20000km service done to my 4.2l GU Patrol. After reading the "smokey patrol" thread below, having had a poor 10000km service performed at Port Augusta, and being warned off Nissan service in Alice Springs and Darwin, I am very reluctant to book my vehicle in with Nissan here in Parkes. Does anyone have any comment - positive or negative - about services being conducted by the Nissan dealer here? Is there any good alternative in Parkes. Thank you for your comments.

I had a Nissan a while back and found Frank Spice in Forbes to be helpful. That was a few years back though.

hi Lynton B
i noticed in your profile that your 4.2l GU is a 2000 yr model 13yrs old
how come its only done 20,000km or is there a 0 missing off both quoted figures 10000km's performed in augusta
or has it spent most of it's life in the shed waiting for the big trip
cheers

There are some things to be done every 10,000km and probably some additional at 20,000km intervals and now he is up to the 20,000km interval and possibly it has done many thousands of km ie 200,000km or more.

What he asked doesn't indicate it has been up on blocks waiting at all.

Ross you are spot on! The vehicle has done 320 000. I thought Mazcan's response to be irrelevant as it did no address my query. So have not responded.

Thanks bazz. I should get a workshop manual and learn to service the vehicle myself; but I have little mechanical aptitude. Replacing deteriorated belts I would find a little daunting. If I could service the vehicle myself I would know it has been done properly. Maybe I should start with the basic 5000km services. Cheers Lynton
