Im not laughing, early ZD30 ones didnt get much furtherlol @ 100,000km
the real question is why did they dump their coolant and overheat if they were being correctly maintained.Im not laughing, early ZD30 ones didnt get much further
We have a couple of 400000km plus TD42t in our company, both had engines rebuilt after coolant dump and overheat ~ 350- 400km. Not sure if you call these failures a vehicle fault, more the driver not noticing problem. Electrodes now fitted to drivers seat.
The rest of the vehicles dont seem to give much problem
that was harsh but i never knew that, patrol wouldnt up hold against a landcruiser, honestly...How long is a piece of string?
No proper answer to be had here. In general the base mechanicals last pretty well regardless of their use but they are not immune to wear and tear like many on here will suggest. Used onroad only and in gentle conditions then they will last considerably longer than normal passenger vehicles due to their heavy construction. But as soon as you start knocking them about offroad and on dirt roads you will shorten their overall lifespan.
What is for certain is that the Nissan body/interior falls apart much sooner than the mechanicals. Don't expect the body to hold together over hundreds of KM like a Landcruiser's.
One question, why don't you have the 4.2 petrol listed here? I've got one that'd 370k & the only thing I can fault was a leaky power steering hose.ok. . . but first you must realize that the different engines have different uses and lifespans.
general rule of thumb stuff. engine, and "dont buy with 'x' amount of kays or more"
2.8diesel. . .250,000km
3.0diesel. . . 100,000km
4.5petrol. . . 300,000km
4.8petrol. . . to new to say at this stage. . . . only a few people can afford to drive them more than a few meters, and none of them have exploded yet. been out since 03.
4.2diesel. . . too early to tell, -they have only been in patrols 22years, and nobody has been able to kill one yet.
