Just orded a new one myself,STR duel cab with Flexiglass canopy. The older Navaras did have a few problems and as with all the early Nissan 4x4 vehicles lacked the quality of the Toyota especialy in the bodywork and upholstry.
I bought my first 4x4 in 1974 and drove Landcruisers til 1995 when I bought my first GQ Patrol. I have just traded my 99 GU on the navara and if I have as good a run out of it as the Patrols I will be happy. Quality of the Nissan have come a long way in the last few years and I belive are equal to Toyota in most respects,they are both good products nowdays.

Not realy, the studs have been left exposed on the cover. The felt protector on the rear center studs is not long enough. It was down to metal within a week!!!!!!! So much for genuine accessories!

hmmm I would be chasing that up with the dealer. I was refering generally to toneau's just rubbing the paint here and there, on the corners etc.
