Which used Nissan Patrol 4x4 should I buy?
Nissan played around with the Patrol range throughout its life, but there was only ever one engine at a time. It began with a 2.8-litre turbodiesel, but a 3.0-litre model replaced it in May 2000, and that's the engine we recommend.
Otherwise, your most major decision is whether to choose the short-wheelbase three-door or the larger five-door. For us, given that either model is pretty huge, the five-door makes the most sense, especially as most versions have seven seats, giving it some useful extra practicality. Besides, from January 2003, the smaller model was scrapped.
