Nissan vehicles are among the most reliable mass-manufactured vehicles on the market, benefitting from a rigorous research and development program, high-tech production facilities and Nissan’s impressive attention to detail, even on its affordable vehicles.
As a result, there’s nothing to suggest that Nissan vehicles are any less reliable than their major competitors, which the manufacturer backs with a five-year, unlimited kilometre warranty program.
In terms of monthly sales here in Australia, the Nissan Navara ute is currently Nissan’s most popular car, according to monthly sales data from the latest Federal Chambers of Automotive Industry VFacts report.
The Nissan Navara sold 15,133 units here in Australia throughout 2021, which was followed by the Nissan X-Trail, Qashqai, Patrol, and the Nissan Juke.
When judged by outright popularity, the Nissan Navara ute as well as the iconic Nissan GT-R sports car are the most popular Nissan cars.
Currently, Nissan packages its vehicles with a five-year, unlimited kilometre warranty program that matches the industry standard of warranty coverage, although this is less coverage than the seven-year warranties you’ll find available from some of its Korean rivals, and half of the coverage you’ll enjoy from Australia’s longest current warranty program from Mitsubishi.
The braked towing capacity of a Nissan vehicle depends on which model you’re looking at, with its urban commuter, the Leaf, rated with a towing capacity of just 680kg, while the compact SUV, the Juke, has a braked towing capacity rated at 1,250kg, and the Qashqai is rated at 1,400kg.
Moving to the X-Trail brings the braked towing capacity up to 1,650kg, while the V8-powered 4x4 Patrol has a braked towing figure rated at 3,500kg, and the Nissan Navara is rated up to 3,500kg.
As a general rule, two-wheel-drive vehicles are more appropriate for those simply driving to and from work in a largely smooth, urban environment, where they offer some fuel economy bonuses from the fact the engine is powering two wheels rather than all four.
If you’re looking for added stability on loose road surfaces or rough road surfaces, or plan on taking your vehicle off sealed roads, onto off-road trails or on the beach, for example, a four-wheel-drive system is a must-have feature for car buyers.
The ability to power all four-wheels gives you added stability during regular driving, as well as far more off-road potential to overcome loose surfaces and obstacles that a front-wheel-drive vehicle simply can’t navigate.
The NissanConnect service offers a huge number of features, including remote vehicle access and engine start features, the ability to lock or unlock your doors, flash the headlights or honk the horn, as well as emergency features like connecting to roadside assistance, sending location data to emergency services and hands-free assistance with single button.
The NissanConnect service also allows you to create time or location-specific alerts, locate a lost or parked vehicle, connection with a concierge team, or the ability to receive live software and map updates for the infotainment system.
