Very Reliable.. 350,000 Km Without Problems Worth Mentioning — Fuel consumption is high.. Hand Brake seldom has worked properly.. Tappet noise always prevalent in V6 motor. Has needed starter motor repairs. Rust beginning to be a problem. Drivers seat partially collapsed. Fun to drive in the country on rough roads

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Great camping vehicle if you like the outdoors

Cons: Heavy on petrol

1997 Nissan Hardbody — Good truck, reliable. First car I bought new. I had it from 1997-2000. It was a good truck, went pretty fast for a 4 banger and was very reliable. I also liked the color, they look best in black IMHO. Mine did not have steel rims however, it had the aluminium mags.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Reliable, good gas mileage

Cons: Rather boring

Nissan 3.0 V6 Hardbody — look it aint a pretty bakkie but it does its job. its very strong seeing as its a 3.0l v6. i got it when it had 104000km on the clock... but its more then just a very strong bakkie, volvo's cant stay with me and only the big bmw's can catch me after 200km/h... plez do note that speed kills... problems i did have with it is like nothing... i had to overall the gearbox but that is my own fault for not checking the oil... other then that i will neve sell it and the day that the motor desides to go i'll just put in a v8... lets see you catch me now...

Pros: power, consumption

Cons: not too pretty

Useless Truck — Spent more money on repairs than anything else. Hardly any room in the cab.

Pros: Did 12.20s in the 1/8th mile(high mileage, raced in the 1/8th to protect engine better). Fairly well on gas.

Cons: Feels like your driving up a rocky mountain going over a few bumps. Handling is awful. Oil filter is a pain to get to cause it can only be accessed from the side of the engine through the passenger fender well.
