    Default Hardbody 3.2 SL

    Hi Gents,

    I need to get a long wheel base bakkie for work to cart tools and supplies around. I can get a bakkie as per topic for a good price. This is a 4x2 low line, if that make sense. I don't know the 3.2 at all, can you please give me some advise.

    Fuel economy

    Power

    Reliability

    Spares availability

    Thanks,
    Brynmor

    Plenty spares. The UD20 trucks still use the 3.2D motor and gearbox.

    Unstressed motor, easily get 500,000km if serviced regularly and not abused. Like any vehicle.
    Not a fast bakkie, but strong.
    Consumption you'll be lucky to get more than 8km/l at 120km/h.

    Had a D/C 4x4 for 120,000km with zero issues.

    Plenty truth here.

    4x4 DC :I have mine for 2 years - started giving it the necessary attention, no abusive driving.

    genuine nissan service components
    had the injector tips replaced a year ago. Still drives fantastic (even if it is a bit slow)
