    Default Defected to the dark side and bought a Nissan !!!!

    So the Mrs has been running the Astra Coupe now for around 4 years as her daily driver and loves it. However with the recent bad weather making the 60 mile round trip to her dads in the high peak twice a week almost impossible in addition to the constant pothole dodging she has do (the joys of lowered suspension and 35 profile tyres) she decided that something more suitable was in order. So today we purchased an 04 Nissan Terrano 3.0Tdi SVE as our daily beater. Its had 1 previous owner with 82k on the clock, its in lovely condition for an old truck but has a very old school chassis, engine and transmission but being the later sve at least does have some creature comforts like heated leather and a leccy sunroof etc. Best thing of all is that I now get the Astra as well as the other motors ive got lol

    Get a good warranty, Nissan is Renault owned now so expect the usual French build quality to be in it.

    Some where built in Japan and some in Spain. This one is Spain built so will be Renault I guess. Its 9 years old so anything that's going to fall off will have done at least 2 or 3 times already lol. Its a very old design based on a Ford Maverick so hopefully no Renault influence has gone into it lol. I bought it locally and it has been mot'd and serviced from 6 months old by a very good friend of mine who I have know 20 years, he knows the truck inside out and assures me its been well looked after and is as good as it gets for a 9 year old truck.................
