Nissan Patrol 3.0 Di SE 3d (2000/W) - Owner Review

Acceptable on road peformance, especially on the motorway, but comes into it's own off road, where there'sno equal. Very good tow vehicle, and 3 door is very manouverable - short wheel base, does not "bridge" off road, and easy to park despite size.

Nissan Patrol (98-09)

Value

4 out of 5

Well built, reliable , easy to service, not too "electronic!" - well equipped

Costs

4 out of 5

Surprised to get over 30 mpg, ad even on m-way get 27 / 28 mpg which is remarkable for a vehicle of ot's size and weight! Disposable spares e.g filters and pads etc are reasonable, but main components are exorbitant.

Performance

4 out of 5

Accelerates satisfactorily for large 4x4- short wheelbase ok on corners so long as you accept it is a large , heavy 4X4! Soom body roll when puched can make passengers queasy (if so inclined!). Good caravan / trailer tow vehicle. Superb off road

Reliability

3 out of 5

No problems at 50 K miles, other than slight overheating when on sustained high speed trips on motorway - cools when you slow down! - maybe it is not meant for high speed cruising!

Image

3 out of 5

Not bought for image!- but tough , chunky, reliable and strong come to mind!

Comfort

3 out of 5

Seats like arm chairs! - comfortable and adjustable. Rear seats only for occasional use, and bott very small. Best as a 2 seat sghooting vehicle with rear seats folded, and dog box and equipment in back!

Overheats slightly at sustained high speed - returns to normal when slow down!

Notchy, but ok

Rear load area is too small for 4 persons, best when used as a 2 seater with rear seats down - then fine vehicle!
