What used Nissan Patrol 4x4 will I get for my budget?

How much does it cost to run a Nissan Patrol 4x4?

The Nissan Patrol may not be the cheapest 4x4, but it is an awful lot of metal for the money, and prices are on a par with the likes of the Toyota Landcruiser.

Likewise, no one can pretend that a Patrol will be cheap to run, but it's perfectly acceptable.

Only fuel economy is a little disappointing. Official figures say the 3.0-litre engine can get 26mpg on the combined cycle, but that compares poorly with the Shogun and Discovery, both of which will return nearer 30mpg.

On the positive side, though, you shouldn't have to pay too much for unscheduled repairs. Warranty Direct says that Nissan labour rates are among the lowest, and that the average cost of repairs is comparable with other off-roaders.
