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

Body roll on the road, but the best off road! Short wheelbase has very tight turning circle and is amazingly easy to park- despite width - Another storey with 5 door- too big to park in most supermarket spaces (Unless you take a "family one").

Performance

4 out of 5

Gutsy, noisey direct injection diesel, pulls like a train. But gets hot when pushed on long journeys - temp rises and cools when you slow down! Do not drive hard on Motorways!

Reliability

4 out of 5

Pretty good so far (54K). Only normal service costs so far. Rumours of engine problems on Internet - The 4.2 Liter engine was unburstable - we shall have to see about the newer 3 litre.

Bit of a behemoth! Certainly see you coming , and visible in Carparks!

Comfort

2 out of 5

Front seats fine(Arnmchairs) rear seats very uncomfortable - stupid rear armrests, Very small boot - Ideal for 2 passengers with rear seats down with dog crate, for shooting!
