My Nissan

My trusty Nissan Navara, it was a company vehicle and I loved it. Regularly had it up to it's nuts in the sea when the company finally went bust and the receivers took it back there was not a spot of rust on it. It was not too bad on juice, (average 30mpg) and over the 3 years I had it I put 15K of diesel in it, thank god for the fuel card, (no wonder they went bust)! It had a new engine at 60K.
All the diving gear or tools for work went in the back and the cab stayed clean.
What a machine, I really miss it. My only gripe is it had a dire turning circle.

What do I drive now? I would love to buy British, I really would but I am afraid they are just pants (I'm sorry landrover lovers).

I currently going through a couple of Isuzu Troopers, (the older 3.1's). Great machines, utterly bullet proof.

So landrovers are unreliable eh?

Why did you need a new engine at 60K,

must be Nissan engines are crap then!

Why are you going through a couple of Isuzus? is it not reliable enough for you to have 1???

sounds like typical Jap crap to me!
