What should I look for in a used Nissan Patrol 4x4?
The Patrol is a pretty solid workhorse, and has rightly earned a reputation as a tough and reliable car. There has only ever been one recall and that affected just over 100 cars built in 1999, and centred on the brake pedal pivot pin.
Warranty Direct has no figures specific to the Patrol, but its engineers tell us that reliability is basically good up to about 60,000 miles when there is a risk that the head gasket can go and the gearbox can fail. Both will take a four-figure sum to put right.
