    FACT! Nissan is the third in the Japanese automakers' rating (after Toyota and Honda) and the 8th in the world rating. The most popular car is Nissan Qashqai. The name "Qashqai" is taken from the name of the tribe living in Iran.

    You might start looking for the Lexus badge because there is about as much of the old Nissan Patrol left in this as there is loyalty in Queen.

    Most buyers chose the turbo diesel over the petrol engine as it has the low-end torque that makes it a good towing vehicle and delivers decent fuel economy. Alternatively the Land Cruiser 76 , despite its lower specification and seating for five is just as evenly matched in terms of rugged off-road ability. Do yourself a favour and test drive one, then tell us what colour u ordered. That said, only if you look after them, like anything in life really. Ends in 3 Days Holden Captiva.

    Nissan Patrol review | CarsGuide

    Nissan Patrol Y61 has been discontinued by Nissan. The 3 litre is known as the ticking time bomb. There might be a fix for this but the one I owned blew an intercooler, overheated on hills, and was generally a pain. The suspension was very hard even when the tyres were let down. Needs adjustable shocks or something. Not buying another Patrol. I owned a 4. The diesel was a real hardcore 4x4, also used to go on family holidays due to the great load capacity and the ability to take abuse inside and out.

    I serviced the diesel myself very cheap and simple to maintain and two words describe it Not the most comfortable ride as I had 33" tyres, 4"lift and heaps of aftermarket gear fitted, but a fearless machine which will never let you down. That said, only if you look after them, like anything in life really. Lovely to drive, very spacious and comfy inside, yet keeping it simple which in turn means greater reliability less electrical gremlins to worry about.

    If you're a semi competent diy'er, basic maintenance is also a breeze and parts are plenty, so cheap to maintain. Overall the best large 4x4 in my biased opinion: I've owned a Land Cruiser which is also a really great car, so comparing the two I'd say the Landcruiser is marginally more refined on the road, whereas the Patrol beats the LC doing 4x4'ing and harsh overland trips.

    Only negative with the 4. Do not purchase if you're concerned about fuel usage. When purchasing a used Patrol, besides the usual checks, have a good look for rust engine bay, roof gutters, etc. If they're not looked after, it can be an issue, specially along the roof gutters. The 3L diesels before don't have a great reputation due to the engines blowing up. This shouldn't influence your decision to get a 4. I took back there and the guy that sold the car tried to tell me that some how it was my flat Excellent towing and climbing with stop holding ability on steep loose rocky and slippery grassy slopes.

    Easy manual gear change. BUT, Brakes failed during emergency when car cut into my safety space. Near nose to tail. Faulty master cylinder replaced. Worn out at K. What will be next?

    All confidence in vehicle lost. Despite the bad rep ZD30 Nissan Patrol's have been getting since they were first released into the market, they really aren't a "lemon" as so many others say.

    Now I'm not a hardcore professional 4WD driver and expert but with my Patrol, but I can honestly say in my personal experience I have never been bogged Coming from a Jackaroo I almost took a step back in luxury. However i am now in a new breed of reliability and well built.

    The My Nissan program also helps. From factory this went just as far as any other lifted and modified car went, and did it with ease. It is truly sad that due to emission reasons we can no longer get these in Australia. Unfortunatly there is a small engine in a big car 4 Cylinder, 3L Turbo Diesel , and it doesn't have a lot of acceleration.

    However the transfer case and running gear is second to none. Very easy to swap out the factory stereo for something more technical as any double din will fit.
