    The Dualis was created, and named, for serving as a family-friendly hatchback as well as it’s dual purpose as a small sized SUV four-wheel-drive. This unique vehicle mash-up was essentially the first of it’s own category here in Australia and ranked up some healthy sales in each of it’s sections.

    While it has more ground clearance than most hatchbacks and handles off-roading relatively well, it doesn’t quite have the height of typical four-wheel drive. Interestingly enough, most of the actual sales made in Australia were for two-wheel-drives, indicative of the intention for most buyers. That said, some do opt for the 4WD to cross more rugged terrain in the Aussie bush. If you’re into that, allow for a good few days to get parts imported if something goes wrong. As long as the issue isn’t with the standard fit safety equipment, most mechanics should be able to do a sufficient job at repairing a Dualis. Otherwise, there are dealerships in many areas of the country as Nissan has been driving the Aussie roads for over half a century.

    While this particular Nissan was made in a UK factory as opposed to the original Japanese factories, the quality appears to be on par and still decently reliable, compared to other Nissan models.

    The 2012 Nissan Dualis is fitted with a 2.0 litre 4 cylinder engine with option for a 6-speed manual transmission or Continuously Variable Automatic transmission that has an option for manually operated ratios.

    When dealing with a used vehicle, whether buying or selling a Nissan Dualis, the transmission and gear changing is one of the first things to look for. Any excessive noise, roughness, or stickiness on shifting should be inspected by someone experienced in transmission issues.

    While the Dualis is marketed as somewhat of an off-road vehicle, the 2012 and later versions, especially two-wheel-drives, aren’t really designed for too much wear and tear. If the exterior looks pretty dinged up, you’ll want to make sure the car has a regular service history and proper detailing.

    The 2011 Nissan Dualis hovers between the small car and medium SUV categories, aiming to please an extra group of drivers and squeeze in just a few more passengers. If you read reviews of the 2007 model, you’ll consistently see how the Dualis struggled to make its way into the Australian market. By 2010, the higher driving position and option for an extra row of seats along with its price shift and extra features gave it a foot in the door and eventually a solid spot in the compact SUV genre.

    The market for used 2011 Nissan Dualis cars starts with an asking price in private sales around $8,000 and goes up to roughy $19,000. The amount a Dualis will actually go for depends largely on the number of previous owner and regular, documented, service history, the odometer, extra features, and overall wear and tear on the body and interior.

    The Dualis comes as either an ST or Ti variation with some nuances within each version, and all have the standard 2.0 litre, 4-cylinder petrol engine. Options for transmission include a CVT auto and a 6-speed manual with a standard front-wheel-drive and option for all-wheel-drive. The engine makes 102kW power and  198 Nm torque which doesn’t exactly make it an accelerating powerhouse. In its favour, the Dualis delivers punch when needed around town and provides smooth gear-shifting while quietly gliding over bumps in the road. For anyone with basic city-driving needs, the Dualis provides all you need.

    The Dualis is best used as a family car in which backseat passengers are almost always small children, as the roominess of its quasi-SUV identity slacks off a bit toward the rear. Even with roomy front seats and plenty of legroom, taller passengers may find their hair brushing against the ceiling in the second row, and may even make solid contact in the third. The boot is a spacious 410 litres so you’ll be able to pack in plenty of groceries, some luggage, and definitely a pram.

    An upside for anyone considering buying a Nissan Dualis is the low carbon dioxide output at 192 g/km and the reasonable 8.2L/100km consumption rating. If you want the full picture however, it’s important to consider potential downsides, especially with the used Dualis. A few things to note:

    -The Dualis engine was downgraded from the X-trail from a 2.5L to a 2.0L and the loss of oomph is definitely noticeable, especially if you plan to move lots of passengers at once.

    -Only the top of the range Ti version has side airbags and stability control so if you’re looking at a different version you’ll need to check if the optional safety package was purchased. All models did receive a 5-star ANCAP rating however.

    -Check rear shock absorbers for an oily film as this is a sign of early failure, common in some Dualis cars. The Dualis is known for its smooth sailing so if a test drive proves to be rather noisy and rattley, you know something isn’t right.

    -Disc rotors have reportedly worn out around the 50,000km mark so make sure you get the brakes checked if you’re buying a heavily used Dualis.

    -Several cars were recalled for steering issues and some consumers reported other steering issues that were costly to fix or resulted in a power-steering failure that left the car drivable but with much more driver effort, reducing the safety.

    As with any used car, it’s important to have a trusted mechanic perform a thorough inspection so you don’t have any surprises on the road. If you’re selling a Nissan Dualis, it’s good to know about potential setbacks that may affect your potential asking price.
