A mate of mine bought the dualcab in the 550, got 30-45k on it soo far ??
No issues, that engine is a pearler !!!
As for cruise control.. no issues.
take it back to the dealer.. .....
his is auto..and its really good on the fuel.
nissan would kill the wagon market if the 550 was put in the patrol....
idiots that they didnt
and they would sell alot of cab chassis if theyd have that engine in it than the pathetic 4pot oiler in it now

Wait until he tries to lock it in low 1st for a hill descent and it takes off because the gearbox wont hold a gear then holes the sump because there are no guards. Great on the highway, but basic things missed in the design unfortunately.

There is a mod you can do...
its online... and a good sparky should be able to help...
been mentioned on outerlimits4x4 discussion board...
but the original thread is somewhere else....on the web
it uses a wire and a switch...
to stop it from runnong away on you..

If you did not purchase the extra warranty then the warranty ran out at its 3rd birthday.

Earthing issue possibly. Common issue with aftermarket cruise control in particular. Have you checked out the Navara forum?

Good luck with it.
