    2007 Nissan Patrol opinions?

    Hey all,

    I have no idea about 4wds let alone diesel 4wds.

    I have seen a 2007 Patrol DX for sale. $17,000 manual and with quite a few extras.
    3.0L TDi.

    It has done 286,000km.

    Is this too high? Things I should look out for? Should I steer clear?

    Any help would be appreciated!

    I'm also looking for something to Tow stuff with.

    Seems to be a lot of information out there but hopefully antilag experts can help? The Nissans suffer cracks when Towing large loads? (not the Patrol but the Narvada) The colorado is just crap?

    def get a mechanic you know and trust to look at it... also does it have a service history.... plenty of moderate km cars like this will have had no diff or gearbox fluid changes since they were under warranty... also has the injector pump ever been touched.. friend brought one recently even with a decent check and within 6 weeks up for new/recond injector pump...

    so I would definitely have some dosh aside for unknowns in first 6 months (but then that pretty much applies for any second hand performance car or 4wd ).... some reading for homework:

    somelinks to diff between 4.2/3.0 http://www.ausfish.com.au/vforum/sho...3-0l-TD-vs-4-2

    hope that helps....... .
    p.s: don't listen to toyota people they'll always try to throw you off your game ...

    Mate of mine has this for sale and has replaced all the usual things that go wrong on these. Selling due to buying new Navara. His old man has it listed and will be taking calls for it at the moment due to him being at work.

    they don't call the ZD30 engine a grenade for no reason get a pajero instead unless you want to do fully sick 4wding, if you do then get a landcruiser

    x2.

    Just sold my Paj for $10k, was fully geared for towing. 3.2 diesel auto is a beaut and much nicer to drive around town than a Patrol/Cruiser.
