Just flogged one for 20 Michael - and then was driving past near our place the other day and noticed a 2007 auto Ti like my 2010 model , it had a bull bar and so I stopped and knocked on the door to ask a question - no word of a lie , out comes this women , apologizes for taking time to answer the doorbell - next minute she is telling me her husband passed away recently and she getting rid of the car , anyway I'm getting a story I really didn't bargain on but after a while she says shes probably going to give it back to the finance company for the $29k left on it.

Lifes a lot of fun , for the hell of it I just drove around to see how she fared and some things had changed , its an STL L=luxury and price had gone up to
it has only $92k on it though.

For Uppy - the Ti only came in autos.

Nissan stopped making manual 4800 Patrols by 2006

Hello Uppy

I had 2 4800 Patrols , 1 manual 2002 with 250,000 on it and 1 2011 auto 4800.

Kept the auto - because there was no new manual replacement.
Hard descision as we go on long harder trips and auto uses more fuel.

250,000 is not a lot on these cars as they have very strong relatively simple straight six engines with lots of torque - more than their v8 rivals.

Mine never did use any oil or had other issues , even plugs only get changed every 100,000.

Valve adjustment is a pain , but I monitored mine and at 250,000 a couple were slightly loose but acceptable.
Its something I would check - I.E. check for excessive noise on startup preferrably when cold.

The drive train on all Patrols is straightforward and easy to live with.

I replaced the clutch at some 225,000 - didn't have to but it ,like brakes and even starter motors and batteries are things that do wear.

Hi Michael
She backed of from that price when I saw her last night , but if I didn't already have one I reckon I could strike a deal.
