The dual-cab off-roading vehicles have steadily been gaining popularity over the last decade with major players such as the Mitsubishi Triton and the long-loved Toyota Hilux. The Nissan Navara, while often considered a step down from the top names, is making a comfy spot for itself in this rising genre. The appeal, at least in theory, is the capabilities for rough terrain with the toughness to be a work horse, and enough room to drive around friends or children if needed.
The Fuel economy is nothing to boast about except in the occasion of off-roading in the bush where it can comfortable blunder along without revving the engine and therefore uses much less than its petrol counterpart.
Unfortunately, while the Navara was marketed as somewhat of an off-road vehicle, this puts buyers of secondhand vehicles at risk of significant wear and tear. Things to look for are underbody damage, radiator damage, drive-shaft issues, and other problems from driving on rough terrain. As with any used car, it is ideal to get a proper mechanic to check everything out to make sure it’s not going to have a major issue surprise you.
