Default Looking at a 2010 3.0L GU7 Patrol - Thoughts?

Hey all,

First post to the Patrol4x4 forum - looking for some thoughts on a Patrol I'm interested in.

2010 Nissan Patrol GU7 3.0L CRD, 116000 on the clock, $24k (will knock that down a bit) - Carsales link below.

https://www.carsales.com.au/dealer/d...3132735/?Cr=11

I've read a lot about quite a few of the older DI models being prone to some issues; what I can gather they improved after mid 2004 (or the GU3 models), and the '07 on wards CRD engines were better again. Trading my Chrysler in on it - missing owning a Patrol ever since I sold my GQ.

Whats the thoughts on the longevity of the 2010 3.0L CRDs - granted it hasnt been thrashed? Plus, whats some key signs I should look for giving the troll a check over before buying? Will get a mechanic to inspect it as well but for my own piece of mind

At the top of the page your thread is in, is a sticky about buying a ZD30, it covers all commonly known issues and the CRD doesn't really rate a mention because they are fine as long as your not buying a thrashed or trashed one. The only real issue with the CRD is varying fuel eco and the fact that like all CRD makes, fuel quality can be an issue.

Why not go into our new members section and introduce yourself?

It will be a good thing even if thrashed.
I put mine up as an example.
They love it, and so will you

Almost impossible to thrash a CRD auto. They can't be hurt by revving and they won't lug as the auto will change back.

That one looks like it's in pretty clean condition, maybe a Gov't department foreman's car, except for the wheels. Can't see cars well in photos, though, or smell them or check underneath.

Missed that first sticky post - thanks for the heads up . Heading over to introduce myself now.

Cheers for the positive steering guys, definitely pretty keen to get into one!

We have a 2011 GU7 and love it. Tackles everything we throw at it, spends up to two months a year living on the beach, tows our trailer, easy to modify and get parts and tough as nails. I know many people with 3.0 crds and none have any problems and some have well over 300,000klms on them without a problem. Get it looked over first, as with any car, and if all good go for it.
