- Running Costs:
- Value for Money:
There was a time when a pick - up was suited to the building site and were built accordingly. Almost over night they became the choice of company car for many due to the attractive pricing of the commercial vehicle tax rate, and as a result chrome finishes and luxury interiors began to emerge on pick - ups in place of sturdy and rugged design. The pendulum has swung again towards the centre, and many pick - up manufacturers aim to give the best of both worlds, as typified in the Nissan Navara Diesel D/Cab Pick - up.
Pick - ups do tend to be sturdy workhorse beasts even if the interior is carpeted and often the school run is its intended use. For a more conventional pick - up load, the Nissan Navara 2.5 diesel engine gives a drive 190 bhp and a torque of 450Nm at 2000 revs. This pulling power rivals Land Rover, and is highly impressive especially as the 31.4 mpg beats the Land Rover on fuel consumption too.
The Nissan Navara has a payload of 1110kg which is similar to many panel vans. Like all pick - ups it feels the bumps and lumps of urban roads, and its bouncy drive can be a little unsettling. Nissan have done a fair job however of keeping the suspension in check and when compared to other pick - ups, the Nissan Navara's drive is as smooth as any other.
As the Nissan Navara is designed to take the children to school as well as the materials to the building site, it has by commercial vehicle standards a luxury interior. The 6 multi - changer CD stereo can be accessed via the controls on the steering column. The Nissan Navara comes with ABS, EBD, brake assist and ESP traction control. All good for off road drives as well as negotiating busy urban streets. Both a driver and passenger airbags have been fitted together with side impact airbags, which is unusual in many commercial vehicles. Just to round it off curtain airbags have been fitted too. Electric windows complete the luxury.
The Nissan Navara represents a good attempt and design at providing a crossover of a practical commercial vehicle and the comfort and drive of a standard saloon. If the nature of the role of the pick - up is to take loads off road and to take little Tommy to school, then it is difficult to think of a better model than the Nissan Navara.

Fantastic, practical, good looking, economical, robust vehicle. Absolutely love this vehicle.
I had no problem with my old Navara but this new model is a different class.
Had the car for week, have done quite a few miles already and found it very comfortable and easy to drive despite its' size. It handles well for a pick up truck and is nice and modern inside.
My husband and I are over the moon with the truck in every area👍😃.
Loved the old style Navara but the NP300 is fantastic, 100% better than the old Navara model.
This is the ideal vehicle for the purpose that we require it for.
It's very comfortable, just what I was expecting but a more modified design. I'm impressed with it and lot of my customers very impressed too and wanted to know where to get one. I must have told at least 20 people already!
Its a nice pickup.
Very surprised on how comfortable it was.
Hard to say only had it a week, but good so far.
Very good truck but should come with mats, liner, and tow bar at least, should not be extra's.
Great vehicle. Does what we want it to do and more. Superb build quality. So far, very pleased.
cabin space is too small if you 195 cm tall -not a comfortable driving position!!!
Excellent. Annoyed the dealer couldn't be bothered to supply rubber mats?!
Its my third Navara and it's just a brilliant all round performer. I wish I had known sooner about the facelift that is forthcoming though, I might have waited.
Great but disappointed on its fuel consumption of 26mpg. Was expecting 30.
Everything is fine but maybe the practicality of it for my useage may be questionable. My fault
Only had 1 week so difficult to review, but the pickup seems very good and fit for its purpose. The fuel consumption does surprise me as I'm getting 40+mpg on the 22miles over the moors, back and forward to work. 36mpg on motorways at 70mph.
It's great, almost too nice to use for the work it's required to do.
Everything we needed.
Nice to drive, adequate for my personal need, but fuel economy is similar to a Formula 1 car.
Very good all round truck!
Nice to drive, very comfortable, looks goods, does the job I need it to.
Love this Navara, everything about it is better than I had hoped for. Fuel economy is not as good as an Amarok but £100 a month cheaper for the hire more than makes up for that! Great spec, Leather, Auto, Climate, Rear Camera, the list goes on and is better equipped than my BMW.
Having owned Navaras in the past, I liked the ability to fold the rear seats out of the way, providing additional floor space. Still too early to comment on reliability, but happy on handling and features.
Exceeded my expectations. Very happy.
Can't really comment on reliability as I've only had the truck 2 weeks, but so far very pleased.
Excellent performance, great truck. The V6 is miles ahead of the 2.5. Test drive both before making a decision.
Only had the vehicle a day, but it's exactly what I expected.
Well equipped for a pickup. Engine a bit gruff, but it will do the job.
I am totally happy with my choice and service so far, but have only had the vehicle for 3 days so do not expect any problems yet!!
Overall, pretty happy with the truck. It's a little "plasticy" but considering the price, its good value. It has some great little features like the music box, heated seats, speed limiter as well as the cruise control. Nice high seating position, which makes it feel very safe on the road.
Looks like a truck, drives like a truck! Can't yet comment on reliability. Overall very pleased.
It's early days, as I have only had the vehicle a couple of days, but so far I am very impressed with it.
Comfortable to drive, great torque combined with the auto box. Good quality interior with the Connect pack being a great addition for the reversing camera and music box system. No complaints at all so far.
A good quality vehicle with great benefits to make driving a pleasure
Really comfortable drive. LOVE the parking camera - thought it sounded a bit unnecessary initially having parked without one for 30 years - but now I've got it - it's BRILLIANT! Also love all the compartments for storing receipts, water bottles, tape measures and other necessary work objects. All in all, a great buy for a landscaper with a family.
Lovely vehicle to such a high spec, would recommend to anybody! Driving to work in style and comfort, will double up as a great family car as well.
This is my second of these. Well specified and more value-for-money than many others. Some minor issues with first pickup and local dealers not ideal.
Having just had the Navara for four days it is hard to comment on performance, however first impressions are very good and the level of controls is excellent. It is so quiet in the cab you do not realise the speed you are doing. I had no problem setting up Bluetooth with my phone and the reception is excellent, also the navigation system is very easy to program and use. The reverse camera is very clear, however sensors would be a good addition. Overall I think I have made the correct choice going for this model.
So far loving it. Many thanks.
Really happy with the vehicle.
Lovely to drive, nice place to be, really pleased so far.
Great looking truck. Great drive and great spec.
What a superb truck, the equipment levels are phenomenal, things that i would only expect in a top of the range luxury car, it handles brilliantly, bags of torque, with lots of thought gone into making it a user friendly work horse, Build quality and looks first class. Very satisfied.
Very nice. It has a car like drive and handles all that we can throw at it :-)
My 2nd Navara from Pickup Trucks Direct and I had no hesitation in ordering this one after the first one was so impressive on all aspects. Performance, reliability, creature comforts and quite economical to run. A great pick up truck.
A practical value for money vehicle
brilliant drives well handles well looks the nuts
I love the truck. It's big and comfortable and has all the features I could have wanted. I'm so glad I got the option with the parking camera though. It's a beast to park!
Very difficult to comment on most things so far, but after a 200 mile journey today I was pleased with the Navara. I have always run Land Rover Discovery in the past, and this Nissan follows 6 Discoveries, so things are bound to be a bit different. Leaf springs obviously give a firm ride over bumpy roads, but it isnt uncomfortable. Low down power and torque is unbelievable. On my 60 mile commute yesterday the Navara averaged 30.8mpg, where the Discovery 3 TDV6 would have done around 27mpg. So far I am pleased with it.
Great truck (again). This is now my third !
I have already owned the Navara before so I knew I would be pleased with it. The only things I would say is that I was disappointed Nissan have only got one electric seat in the front ( Drivers ) my 55 plate had both. Plus a minor downside is the arm rest storage. My old one had two trays this is just the one box. Both very minor but a backward step by Nissan I think .
Love it, being an ex Mitsubishi shogun owner making the switch to a Navara was not easy but I love driving it. Fantastic pick up, surprisingly good on fuel!
I have owned Nissan Navara for the last five years and am happy with the new model.
The Navara is very good, having had a 11 plate before this is very much as good. Very comfortable and quite with all the toys.
It's a very nice pickup more like a car than van.
Lovely motor, good MPG for the vehicle it is
I have had one of these before and find them to be ideal for my use, good for work and pleasure.
Good vehicle , good value for money , mpg not great but really practical .
Very nice in and out side
Its the first Navara I have had and it is everything and more than I wanted.
Very happy with the vehicle, it looks great and I'm enjoying driving it.
Can't believe how good a deal this is
I am pleased with the vehicle. It is just right for my company.
It's my second Nissan truck and I'm very pleased with new one
Really impressed with the standard of equipment and comfort. Drives really well and with the added roll bars looks the part! A great pick up, hard to beat!
the best one on the market at the moment
Excellent Truck - first Navara. Fuel was better than I thought (31.6 mpg on a run) - very easy to drive would recommend
This is my 4th Navara and 2nd from Pickuptruckdirect-overall very happy.
Perfect for what I need it for, something to carry all my building stuff, and look professional at the same time.
Does what it says it does, were happy
Too early to say proerly but if its as good as my previous Nissans it will be fine. The new HD Sat nav system is awesome.
very good truck.No problems yet (10,400 miles)
Love my navara, it's my 3rd and all have been great.
disappointed ! We went for the same truck as we had and unfortunately this year there was no sunroof no electric seat adjustment for the passenger which were all as standard before and now you have to pay extra. We will not be choosing Nissan next time.
The truck is perfect for the job. It's large load bed means we can easily carry large loads, and the cab is luxurious with refinements often found in top speck cars. The ride height and vision is great and the reversing camera makes parking a doddle! And then there's the extras - tow bar, canopy and load liner are quality parts and well fitted.
This is my second Navara so I'm more than happy with it, reversing camera is a great addition and the sooner they put them on vans as standard the better, great vehicle.
Its comfortable, practical, easy to use and the amount of fuel used is totally dependent on how you drive it. Only downside is the noise at high speed, but its a pick up!
Having not owned a Navara before, and being a bit of a 'die-hard' Ford owner I am very pleased with the overall quality, feel, reliabilty and performance of the Navara. Having a few 'whistles and bells' in the form of reversing cameras, media package etc just makes it even more refined. All that said, the Navara is a fantastic work vehicle doing everything asked of it.
Superb pick up, V6 is a joy. Fuel economy better than my previous D40 auto.
Its my third one now .... Great trucks, hence why I keep coming back
We really like the Nissan Navara. Great value for money with the high specification as standard. A real good work horse.
4th Nissan I've had and will more than likely have another.
It's a Nissan! My third Navara so I knew what to expect.
The nissan navara is the best pickup i have ever driven, i will probably have another one after this one goes back.
Very impressed and will definitely stick with Nissan trucks in the future
Having never owned a pickup before, overall extremely pleased with the vehicle.
I love it
The Navara is probably the best vehicle I could wish for, it suits my business and personal needs perfectly. I have enjoyed having one for 3 years and I am sure that I will enjoy my new one for another 3 years.
Second Navara, Very Happy so came back for another one
Super vehicle cant fault it.
The ride is a little hard but can be expected as it is a work truck made for heavy loads everything else is great could do to have central locking on the tail gate very reliable and all the kit included you would pay extra for on many other cars / trucks. Would buy another any day of the week
All very good
Our truck does our job well. We have the King Cab and the two doors that open behind the main doors are a godsend. It gives us good access to the cab area free of a central pillar with good loading space for our gear. Many people comment on this when we are out and about. Its biggest fault are its tyres. This winter has found them wanting in the snow. On many occasions we have sat and spun with no grip as the road tyres just sit on the surface and spin. Next winter we will have to invest in off road tyres for the winter.
This is the second Nissan Navara I have leased and cannot fault them.
The Nissan Navara i have has all the extras, only problem i have had is with a small leak from somewhere around the sunroof ,this an issue that is causing problems, but the problems are with my local Nissan dealer nothing to do with pickuptrucksdirect.
The Navara has been great
Great truck, no complaints what so ever.
I have had a failure on the EGR valve but it was replaced under warranty by the local dealer. Despite both long and short journeys and very little towing I only seem to be getting about 24 miles to the gallon which is quite a long way short of the manufacturers stated figures.
Tool for a job but quite pleasing to use.
I have owned a Navara since 2007 so i new what to expect with new one Dash board updated - very nice truck
I knew what I wanted. I had the Navara Avetura previously but really wanted the 7 speed auto V6. It's expensive for a posh builders truck, but the level of equipment and engine improvement over the 2.5 is worth it.
Surpassed expectations of quality and comfort.
Its the third one I have had and the best so I am very pleased
Pleased with the vehicle good fuel figures for a big truck.
Excellent, very pleased.
Does everything I need it to do. Ideal.
The Narava is an excellent choice as an all-rounder. The load bay and cover I ordered works perfectly with the loads i need to carry (and keep dry) and the double cab together with the Connect features keeps all my guys happy when we are all on the road together to a delivery or event.
its the second one of this model i have had, the new updated spec is a joy to use with the touch screen Nav outstanding. My new Navara Auto is a bit thirsty compared to the manual version, im hoping this will get better with a few more miles under its belt.
GREAT ! exactly what i wanted
Good work horse, plenty of power and good acceleration.
The truck meets all my expectations and more.
Can't comment on the reliability yet as i've only had it a day. So far It has surpassed expectations in so much of its driveability and comfort. Best pick up on the road at the moment I would say.
First Nissan Navara I have had & I've got to say I'm impressed - it's great for work and play and is surprisingly cheap to run
significant improvement on my 7 year old one!!
This truck does what it says on the tin !!great specs for both commercial and domestic use - could not ask for more.
I have a pick up because I can only add commercial vehicles to my company insurance policy. Good all round workhorse, performance is better than my 2007 model. Not the best vehicle to cover large distances though as the seats aren't that comfy (very hard!). Hopefully the fuel figures should be better than the old model, but its too early to tell yet.
Glad I came across the site - pleased with every aspect of the truck.
so far so good - only had 3 days!!
the Nissan is very good generally, a few small things let it down but I am being fussy. Almost too good to be a truck.
Having returned the previous generation of Navara recently, this newer model has a vastly supreior engine, which delivers more power and better fuel economy. The interior refinement in the Techna spec is akin to a well equiped 4x4, and the versatility of these vehicles speaks for itself.
It is a bit too early for me to rate my new Nivara so my scores reflect this. I did a lot of research prior to my selection and owned a Mitsubishi L200 and my early thoughts are that the Nivara is a more superior vehicle.
Can't mark reliability accurately as just started lease! But the Pickup is exceeding expectations after 24 hours of using it!
I've only had it for one day so impressions may change. Initially though it seems to tick all the right boxes for what I need.
So far i am very impressed with My Nissan Navara Tekna
Great vehicle for work & play.
3rd one so I suppose that says it all - 2nd Auto but wish they could do something more with economy !!
Very pleased, much better than I thought
Good vehicle but I don’t put it through its paces as it is bit of a boyhood dream from my days in the USA where pickups are common everyday transport, like the practicality and the overall appearance. I managed to find reasonable insurance given my use but most companies did not want to insure other than a commercial working Vehicle at a very high price. Consumption is not bad at 34.5 over the last 17k on mixed roads but not the race track
It has been great, very practical for work and leisure!! Plus a good looking motor
Love it...fully top of the range, like being in a car !!
have had same model before but this is a lot better and cheaper!
A great truck , only just got it but first impressions are very good , the equipment was much better than I expected.
I love my pick-up to bits I have been waiting ages for the right time to get this pick-up and it puts a smile on my face every day.
Great vehicle it will do exactly what I want it to.
I love my Nissan Navara, the only disappointment is that it doesn't have DAB digital radio, you would think that after paying £2000 for the extras pack that it would have it especially as most new cars have them as standard these days. The other thing is that I ran it out of diesel the other day even though it said I had 40 miles left in the tank. I can use it as my work van and family car which means I no longer have the need for two vehicles so saves me money in that way as running costs are quite high. All in all I think it is a great truck and would recommend it and Autorama to anyone I know.
I obviously like them as it's my second Navara.
Great truck, more economical than I thought it would be. Very nice to drive. Thanks very much.
Only had it one day but couldn't be happier with it at the moment.
It's very comfortable, practical and comes fully loaded.
Great truck, as the last one a bit thirsty but given the price and spec against other manufacturers, it knocks spots off them. Very happy, again!
A lot better than my old truck L200
does what it says on the tin
Only had it a couple of days but first impressions are good, better than I was expecting to be honest.
I was really pleased with the truck, I have been wanting one for a while and it's been all I expected it to be and more
I am very please with the truck and accessories supplied. The truck is very comfaortable and pleasant to drive in all conditions!
I initialy wanted a Hilux, but the delivery time scale was too long, so i chose the Navara Acenta. It exceeded my expectations. It pulls my 1000 litre fuel bowser much better than a Ford ranger and Hilux. I only had the truck a couple of weeks, so cant score reliability.
A little early to say at present. However, thus far the above star ratings apply and we have no reason to doubt that the vehicle will continue to provide satisfaction in the future.
Good solid looking motor plenty of extras, good storage places, will have to get use to the sixth gear overall well pleased
ideal for my type of work, setting up of large air conditioning systems, can take equipment and personal required with ease and in comfort
Very happy with the truck, the whole process went swimmingly.
Exceeded my expectations
Very pleased with the truck, early days to review on reliability, but overall actually better than expected. (ride, fuel economy, build quality etc.)
the product is what makes a business, i love it big comfy drive.
Early days yet, but impressed by levels of comfort and build quality
Suprisingly good considering I'm coming to a truck from top of range Audi.
ITS A GOOD ALL ROUNDER. IDEAL FOR THE FAMILY WHILST ALSO PRATICAL FOR WORK. LOAD SPACE IS A LITTLE AFFECTED BY THE FITTED ROLLER TOP BUT APART FROM THIS GOOD.
love the truck , does everything i expected from it and more.
Excellent truck and lovely to drive
Drives like a luxury car with everything i need for work.
Very happy indeed, thank you very much for a excellent service.
I love these trucks, would have to pretty special to tempt me away.
THIS IS MY 2ND NAVARA - IT "TICKS ALL THE BOXES" FOR ME AND IS VERY SUITED TO BOTH MY BUSINESS AND PRIVATE LIFE!
Doing the job I wanted to and a lot more, very happy so far.
Having had a Navara before for a short time, this Tekna Connect model does seem better. A bit quicker but giving better MPG (when driven with an easy right foot!) media centre with Nav and bluetooth is great!
Had a platinum Navara before which was great so now have the Tekna which has all the toys and is again a great truck - shame fuel costs are so high, but hey ho
SMART, A JOY TO DRIVE !!!!
The truck is great
It is what you expect of a Pick up truck, the comfort levels are good and so is the spec of the models we got.
Drives very well and would recomend to others
very impressed with my vehicle, another happy customer.
Overall the truck is as expected. However I am disappointed with the noisiness and general lack of refinement of the engine compared to the other similar trucks that I considered.
I have only had it 2 days but love it.
Having previously leased a Nissan Navara 3 years ago I find them to be very reliable.
Probably the best equipped pick up on the market
Only had it for 24hrs and I'm very impressed.
Better than i expected.
the vehicle is great - perfect for work and pleasure
Automatic Navarra ,a joy to drive !
Having owned the same make of truck for the last 3+ years this facelift model has been improved with just enough upgrades without altering the basis of a good truck.
Immense! Touch Screen Sat Nav and 190 BHP has nailed this truck as the leader for other to follow
The new Nissan Navara truck is a superb vehicle. I have had 3 now and cannot fault them apart from a heated front screen.
We are very pleased with the pick up. We cannot fault it.
Early days yet, but the Navara King Cab seems excellent, very comfortable, plenty of power, fairly poor turning circle but not really a problem. Great truck.
folding mirrors are fantastic, excellent rear camera
My new Navara is even better than I expected. Well built & very comfy inside. Glad I waited that little bit longer for the best Pickup on the market!
Not a Rolls Royce but fine
I have owned several D/Cab Pickups ...Toyota,Mitsubishi,Nissan,Ford and even though my D22 Nissan Blew the engine I have gone back to the Navara because id enjoyed owning the previous truck so much more than the other makes.
The V6 Navara provides luxury with practicality. It was leased to replace a Discovery 3 and has a very similar feel to it. Very pleased so far - only day 2 of ownership though.
Amazing!! Just what I wanted and more, comfort and quality of a top of the range car and practicality of a pick up. What more could a girl want!!
The Nissan Navara is a fantastic vehicle and is definitely the best of the pick up bunch. The refinements and quality of the new facelift model are really impressive, new slate colour much nicer than the storm grey. Really enjoying the driving experience and it looks great.
Great so far, but only had it a day! I'm sure it will be fine, it looks great anyway!!
had one before - some things better as vehicle is updated model
My Truck does everything I need it to do, but could do with doing more miles to the gallon
Early days , but a great vehicle so far .
I am very happy with it.
I like it
I love it!
I love the vehicle.
I am very happy with it.
I think if the vehicle came with a load liner as standard it would help.
Better than I was expecting
second vehicle which says it all, fulfills all requirements
I am very happy with the vehicle.
I am happy with it.
It's ideal for what I need. Lovely vehicle.
I am very happy with my vehicle.
I am very happy with it, more comfortable than what I thought. The turning circle could be improved but it's a nice looking car. Overall I'm happy with it.
I am really happy with it.
Great all rounder! lovely spec and reasonable MPG.
It's lovely and it is what I expected.
I am happy with it, quite expensive to run.
I am not getting as many miles to the gallon as expected, it is approximately 25 miles to the gallon instead of the expected 30.
The reversing lights are very dim and you can hardly see them, other than this it is fine.
I am really pleased with it.
It is very comfortable feels like a car.
good truck, battle with the steering wheel sometimes due to the fact it seems to need turning twice as much round a corner than my old van? The nissan is 10 times better than the mitsi one i had a few years ago, no complaints so far.
Very happy with the Nissan.
It has not let me down - so far I am very impressed.
I am really happy with my new truck.
It does just what I wanted I am very pleased with it.
It is perfect for me I have a family and a dog, it is comfortable and reliable. I'm over the moon with it!
It is what I expected, nice vehicle.
It was just what I was after.
I am really happy with it.
It was what I wanted I am happy with it.
I am very happy with the truck.
I am happy with it.
I am very happy with this vehicle.
I love it! I am still more impressed than I thought I would be.
Its better than what I expected. A good vehicle.
It is a good vehicle, I am very happy with it.
I am very happy with it, it is exactly what I wanted.
It is entirely what I expected I am very happy with it.
Very pleased with the vehicle and I feel it is better quality than the previous model. It is very reliable, very impressed.
This is my second Nissan Navara on the trot & they just get better. All my ratings would be 5 star but you must remember this is a large 4x4 pickup & not a car also the running costs in all other ways are 5 star except mpg not the best but ok [190bhp = 30mpg]this is the Navaras only small chink in its armour But mpg aside is King of 4x4 pickups
I am very impressed with the luxurious interior, the satellite navigation system and the telephone system inside. Excellent vehicle.
Great buy does everything required and more - great pick up
It is a fantastic truck and is better than what I expected.
Plenty of room inside the cab loads of gadgets a bit too good for work and a great finish - a good buy? only time will tell.
The Navara Tekna is the best in a very competitive market.
Better than what i expected.
I love my new vehicle it is the best thing since sliced bread!
It is the best of the both worlds - as comfortable as a car and as practical as a van. I love it.
Very very pleased with it, very smart vehicle. Lots of positive comments from friends and family.
It is the best vehicle I have ever driven.
It is ideal for what we want, we are very happy with it. It is hard to score the reliability as it is a brand new vehicle therefore I have rated an average score for this.
I am very happy with the vehicle.
I purchased the vehicle for someone else but they are very happy with it.
Good robust vehicle, with lots of extras. Easy to drive vehicle with good space for goods.
As good as expected. I will just have to live with the economy!!
Very nice truck.
The Nissan Navara is a bit larger than I thought but I am quite satisfied with it.
Great truck and just what is needed within the construction industry
It is a very nice vehicle that meets all our needs.
The vehicle exceeded my expectations, I am very happy with it.
I am very pleased with my Nissan Navara.
A good all round truck.
I personally prefer the Navara, as it has more power.
Can't fault the truck at all.
Up to now the truck is very good and a huge improvement on the previous model .
Great, fantastic truck, does everything I want it to do.
Too thirsty, too big and the seats are uncomfortable, they are more like benches.
The only thing missing from the truck is an Ipod connection.
There is a slight vibration from behind the dashboard which needs to be fixed under warranty, but otherwise I am very happy with the Navara and at the moment - due to its practicality and performance - would not consider any other pick up.
Early days so far, but first impressions are good. Excellent cabin, all the luxuries other cars aspire to.
A good piece of kit, although heavier on juice than I thought it would be.
Definately, the pick of the bunch....
Good truck, no problems.
I really like this vehicle, the equipment level is very good but I think it should have reversing sensors as standard and possibly on the front too as it is such a big vehicle.
Great value for money
Great to have all the gizmo's, I'll just have to find the time to understand them properly. To achieve the items I required, you pretty well have to have every option, which is probably a bit excessive as I do use the vehicle for its intended purpose (for many users it is an SUV). Nice to have - but in some ways too nice for work use, I will enjoy it regardless.
I love the truck.
It does exactly what you expect for a truck.
Good practical truck.
Good all weather vehicle.
Good truck, very happy.
It has a high fuel consumption.
Impressed - drives more like a car than a pickup
Very early days yet so hard to comment. Generally a very nice motor.
Excellent, no nasty surprises. Averaging 33mpg which I think is great for such a big lump of a pickup.
I used to own the same truck 3 years ago, new interior and a bit quicker pickup.
The truck is everything I expected it to be.
I feel this is the best truck around at the moment.
The director who drives the truck has been happy with it.
Heavy on fuel and the black does scratch easy. However good truck, does what it says on the tin.
Fantastic truck, highly recommended.
Good sturdy all round vehicle.
Good truck, useful for the business.
I find it a good all round vehicle, which has exceeded my expectation.
Good practical truck.
Before deciding on this vehicle I had done some research and this is perfect for me.
Useful truck with all the comforts of a car.
It's a good truck, very practical.
The vehicle is driven by my partner - he is very pleased with it.
The truck suits my needs perfectly.
I am very happy with the truck as it has all the features I require.
The Nissan Navara does the job I wanted it to do and is suitable.
It is a perfectly good truck, which does it's job.
Compared to other pick ups, I feel it is the best around.
The truck does it's job well, but the insurance is higher than I expected it to be.
The Navara is a very well built truck.
I am currently very happy with the Navara and feel it is an improvement on the old model.
I am very happy with the truck and feel it is brilliant.
It is a very versatile vehicle, but do feel it is heavy on fuel and the spare tyre is too easy to steal.
The truck is a good tool.
I find the Nissan Navara a useful tool, which does exactly what I need it to do.
Overall I am satisfied with the Navara so far, except for some vibrations on the dashboard when you accelerate which can be annoying
Resonably good, very practical.
Better than we had expected excellent vehicle
very nice truck as its the new face lift model. but only 29.3 mpg.
Excellent in every way. Good standard of finish and very high spec.
Having never owned a pickup before i have nothing to compare it with but all seems well put together, getting 30mpg for the first 1000 miles, however with the roll top fitted there isn't as much room as i had anticiapted
VERY PLEASED WITH IT
Nice and big, parking not as easy in multi stores, however great looking.
Love it. Biggest problem is keeping the keys hidden from my wife.
Great fun to drive. Everything is excellent, other than the sat nav which is a little fiddly and without postcode support it is tricky.
Brilliant!..... remember it's a pick-up not a racing car or a rolls royce.
Good vehicle - had one before and back again for another. Had problems with 4WD sensors on the last one, but fixed under warranty - time will tell on the new one !
Fantastic - much better than I expected
Having owned a van and a car for a long while i decided to combine the two and buy an L200, after 2 years I p-ex'd it for an Aventura. This motor is 100 times better all round on performance, comfort, handling and running cost. It was exellent in the new year snow-drove from Cardiff to Birmingham via the Brecon Beacons. It never put a foot wrong. On the down side is the sat nav and hansfree-both rubbish. Also parts are expensive as they are main dealer parts. Check rear diff oil whenever serviced-very expencive if this breaks!
Its great - much better than the Mitsubishi L200 Warrior
Good level of equipment,a quiet drive and a very versatile vehicle
very pleased - vehicle well prepared too when collected- small issue with the closure of the tailgate that was attended to immediately and effectively.
Great I love it
second one in a row that iv bought from pickup trucks direct
You are highly recommended!
I love the Navara it's my second one. Ok it's not the cheapest to run but it does everthing I need it to.
Excellent vehicle combines car comfort with load carrying capability. Not so good for the school run, or a quick nip down to the supermarket, as it's not so easy to park. Seems rugged and well built, and can cope with most things, bring on the snow!
Good all round performance
An all round good quality truck.
Bloody marvellous - thanks John
Very pleased with truck to date.
Ecellent in almost every way., could do with better fuel economy like the toyota.
The nissan navara is at home cruising on motorways or pulling a mini-digger across a muddy field. Its' a luxury car with workhorse performance - ideal
The Tekna Nav Auto is a pleasure to drive and is certainly a step up from my Ranger in terms of gadgets and gizmos and also quality. Only niggle is the slightly worse turning circle, but i knew that before i ordered one. Cabin space is better and the controls are well laid out. The sound system is impressive for a factory fitted system. Doors shut with a thud rather than a twang to further emphasize the quality. The steering is positive and precise instead of the Ranger's vague and woolly arrangment. The ride is slightly harder than the Ford around town but that is soon forgotten when on a dual carriageway or motorway. Economy seems to have settled at 26-28mpg around town and 31-33 on the motorway but i have only done 600miles!
The Nissan Navara kept my 3 man team work through the snow, towing heavy plant in 4WD with ease. Very pleased with a well thought out vehicle. A+++
Fantastic! really pleased.
very pleased with it
Early days yet, but so far great fun. As you would expect from nissan, solid motor well thought out.Very practical for for what i need,looking forward to plenty of miles of quality motoring.
best pick up truck we have had
Perfect for my requirements
so far i am pleased with the vehicle and no complaints, a little uncomfortable in the back so i am told but hey , im in the front.great usable space in the rear cab when no passengers though. i broke the rear roof bar and nissan were really slow to come back with tough luck , not under warranty and no goodwill.i guess i will take care of that myself.the sat nav could do with postal code entry too.
Not as good as hoped. Very spacious but a difficult and agricultural drive. Should have gone with my first opinion of an auto but overall be glad when we swap it for somthing else.
its great vehicle and have no issues at the moment as it is barely 3 months since i have owned it
Excellent work horse with car like comfort
Very good all round wagon
This is our second Navara, which says it all really. We are really happy with it!
Its a great truck the best i have had
It is a lovely comfortable drive and i am very pleased with it. Particulary came into its own with the recent weather, and meant i was able to go to work and still earn money! The only annoying thing is the price of canopys for the back, expensive but essential.
It suits my needs perfectly, the comfort of a new luxury 4x4 interior yet underneath all that a true work horse!
an excellent working tool that gives the benifit of a family car. A good all round vehicle.
Very happy with truck. Fuel economy is awfull
It is fantastic (if a little thirsty) Better than I hope for. Would recomend it to anyone.
Very pleased with my Pickup Truck
Love it. Does the job perfectly and great tax breaks!!
Vey pleased with it
OVER ALL I AM VERY PLEASED
i cannot coment as i havent taken delivery yet. but i am sure i would give 5 across the board
Must be the best value pick up on the market. Does everything we ask of it & made the difference between working & not in the bad weather. Rerards, Craig CB JOINERY
My Nissan not yet received. Ratings from experience of colleagues vehicle.
as above the truck so far is not with me, but i have had this truck before and i would not replace it with another
bought one without a test drive and was not disapointed.
I am very pleased with my Nissan.Allthough a little heavy on fuel( i think all 2.5 pickups are) i cannot fault it, a vast improvement on my old model D22 Nissan
A good tool for any business.
Awesome, a proper truck!!!
It handles how a 4x4 pick up handles. I have had Mitsubishi Warriors etc and the Navara in my opinion is the best of the bunch. It could do with a bit more HP. I understand there is a 200hp upgrade chip available but this apparently invalidates the warranty!!!. The running costs for this type of vehicle are about what I expected. I was please with the tyre wear, I got 32500 miles on the first set. The 18000 mile swervice interval is a bonus. I had one niggle with the headlamp washer fuse blowing. The other niggle is the strap that pulls the load cover shut. This came adrift at the tailgate end and Nissan cannot/will not fix it, as it is not a Nissan fit. Other than that I have had no problems to date. The one good bonus was in the snow, the truck was brilliant, I helped out a number of stranded people, delivered firewood to neighbour and got loads of envious looks. Barrie Hamilton Kroy Europe Ltd
STURDY RELIABLE GO ANYWHERE TRUCK. WE TRAVELLED TO STRASBOURG FULL OF EQUIPMENT AND TOOLS IT WAS A PLEASURE IN OUR TRUCK!
Came from an Audi car so a little adjustment needed. However warming to.
VERY GOOD / EXCELELNT OFF ROAD
I love it !
over the moon great to drive very comfortable
I am very pleased with my new Navara. Since getting it in October I have done 3300 miles, I have driven it on motorways, through towns, on single track roads and over very rough terrain while getting to and from work! It is a very capable vehicle wether it is cruising at 70mph or riding over uneven, muddy, wet round. I will certainly consider getting a Navara again when my lease is due for renewal and have been recommending the pick up to friends.
im very happy with it.
Doing the job i wanted to and a bit more, very happy
Perfect for my business and private use.
I've never driven a pick up truck before. After test driving the Navara at length I say without any doubt, it was impressive. WHY you ask - When a vehicle can fulfil the needs of both work and family life with a high degree of quality but doesn't cost you the earth, then that can only be classed as good for all. I have driven & owned many different cars from luxury 4x4s to £500 runarounds over the years, but if I was to take the fun of the off roader and the practicality of the commercial vehicle mixed with a dash of street kudos. What do you have ? A NISSAN NAVARA (Double Cab of course). The proof of my words is in my actions. I have ordered one today.
comfortable ride, parking can be a problem as it is longer than a parking space, not fast acceleration but was expected, will drive over rough terrain with ease even without using 4wd, built to a good standard, only negative i found is bluetooth phone connection is poor
The model I have is a 2006 Navara Outlaw (Double Cab). Moving from a small hatchback (Golf TDI) to a pickup did make quite a difference. I only bought it because I got an excellent deal on it and am very happy with my purchase. Just over seven months since I've had it and it's been very good. The only disappointment, and a slight one at that, is that fuel consumption is significantly higher than my sports hatch. But that is to be expected from a 2+ tonne truck. This truck has it's own presence, and added to the fact that it's the most powerful truck in the diesel market, it is leaps and bounds better than it's rivals. I'm not just saying that because I own it, but because I used to be a skeptic of Nissan's trucks after the fiasco that befell the older D22's. But, the D40 has sorted all these issues out and has become a market leader. Any buyer will be very happy with their purchase.
very pleased with the Navara its self but the back cover including the spring mechanism could be better.
This is my third Navara and my second new shape. The current Model is much better than old one the D22 I think? It's great for work as i'm a sparks so don't need to carry a load of stuff but even when I do I can get it all in. It comes in really handy for the weekends too as I'm a football coach so I can get all the kit in the back and my boys in the front. I got a great deal on the new one from these guys (although I'm not sure why they changed the name to Tekna as it's got the same spec as the aventura) and they gave me a fair price for the old one. You could do a lot worse than speak to them.
It was our second one - we liked the first one so much!
This is my second and I am very happy with it. The only alternative I would consider next time will be the VW
Once you're out of 1st and into 2nd gear it drives like a normal large family car. You only realise how big (long) it is and how poor the turning circle is when you try to park it in an average supermarket car parking space. It's a bit early to comment on running costs and reliability as it's only 3 months old, but 30-31mpg isn't bad considering the size and weight of it. We'll see what needs changing or replacing (other than oil and filters) at 18,000 miles in 7-8 months time.
It's not a Merc - but then its not a Merc's price.
Very pleased with my Navara , although a little thirsty , this is the best vehicle i have had.
