    Re: Np300 4x4

    Good question. As the previous Navara replaced the range-topping Hardbodies in 2005, it is possible that ultimate build quality of the Hardbody and NP300 was not quite up to the same standard as...

    Re: Np300 4x4

    Apart from the Patrol and perhaps NP200, these days it seems as if Nissan bakkies are constructed out of matchsticks and tinfoil. The NP300 collapses during a crash, the new Navara collapses under...

    Re: Is this it?

    You asked what's all the hype about, not what's new. Many owners prefer monocoques for dual-purpose 4x4's over body-on-frame because of generally superior roadholding and ride.
