Hey all,
Just purchased a Nissan Navara ST-R 3.0 Turbo 2003 model and at present I am quite happy with it. As the engine is the ZD30, same as Patrol minus intercooler, I am wondering if i will get a worry free run. Has anyone heard of any horror storys about the same motor used in the Navara, as the Patrol. I would hope by now Nissan has got of their backside and sorted out any dramas; we will see.

Cheers.

htere is a few threads around i cant remeber what the address is in fishnet four wheel forum about clutch slippage and also 3 ton towing capacity but hey nissan are not saying anything on towing ability when asked but clutch was repalce aparently may be a related oil leak somewhere nearby.

i have a 99 d22 with no dramas (although a turbo would help me on the highway?)
Standard suspension sucks with a bullbar (as most guides will tell you but i guess every one doesnt have one so horses for courses and rear end jumps a little without a load (most utes do) .
i love my ute .
