Reliability & safety Rating

3.8 out of 5

Most pickup trucks have a hard life, plugging their way around farms or building sites, towing heavy loads and generally getting beaten up, so it’s important they’re very reliable.

Nissan Navara reliability

There’s no reason to suspect the Navara won’t manage to stay reliable. All its parts are well proven and the 2.3-litre diesel engine has found its way into more than 300,000 Renault and Nissan commercial vehicles already without any major problems being reported.

Nissan's 11th-place finish in our 2020 Driver Power owner-satisfaction survey represents a drop from fourth place in 2018 but few participants were Navara owners. Generally, Nissan drivers are pleased with the infotainment, technology, safety systems and the practicality of their cars. Just under 16% of owners reported a fault within the first year of ownership.

Safety

When it comes to safety, the Navara is pretty well equipped, which helped it achieve an impressive four-star rating from Euro NCAP. This is about on par with its rivals. As well as the mandatory stability and traction control systems, all models get seven airbags and a Forward Emergency Braking system, which can detect an impending collision, warn you about it and apply the brakes automatically if you don’t react in time. There are two ISOFIX child-seat mounting points in the rear and all models get LED daytime running lights.
