gday ,picked up the new navara str 2.5 great work car , pulls to the left heavly
nissan said they will fix , but the thing that bugs me ,the headlights were shining to the moon and the speedo is 11km out so about 122km gives me 110 km and 68km is about 60 km , i asked nissan about this , there is nothing they can do it comes this way from the factory and it is deliberatly done apparently so they cant be sued , i found that a sorry excuse but speaking to a few other people its the norm , so when you see all these people going slow . well they think there doing the limit , what the world coming to

I think you'll find the speedo error is a standard requirement these days - saw a thread on this not so long ago.

As for the pulling to the left - mine did this a little. Suggest you get a proper wheel allignment done asap - I have replaced a set of tyres already after 20,000km as the inside of the tyres was worn badly. Hopefully the D694's I've put on last a lot longer than the 693's!

So let's all take this in ....
avoid Nissan We should be getting a better deal on new vehicles these days.

If I were looking, I don't think it would be NISSAN

Some one out there must have connections with Nissan....what do you think?????

I checked my speed against the GPS and it came out almost spot on.

Cheers Dave

I have the 2007 D40. Found the same 10% variance in speedometre, I think to do with ADR regulations. When measuring distance with the odometre no variance over 100 K's travelled. That said it allows you to step up to the larger tyres and your speedo gains accuracy. Original tyres done 70'000 K's. Replaced front brake pads and rotors at 50'000 K's. Winged to Dealer thier reply, "your lucky most only get 30'000 K's. Motor and Auto, fantastic. All round it does what i need with ease and will be going to the cape next year.

Your problem sounds like tyres, if you have non standard tyres on it, then your speedo willl be out, then again I could be wrong.

When I put on Cooper ATR Tyres on our D22, it did the same, pulled to the left, severly.

I gave the Cooper rep heaps over this, as with the standard tyres on it, it drove perfectly.

One option was to give it a full wheel alignment, front and rear together, and Cooper's were gunna arrange it. But I got onto a bloke that got it almost perfect.
Standard alignment price, $30, and I have never taken my vehicles to anywhere else since.

Your headlights are easily focused, as I found out when put up against a shed wall, (found the vehicle was cross-eyed).
A few beers later, and a bit of "hang-schyte", mate and myself had fixed the problem.
