We have just nbought one for 700 heard some good and some bad things about them but would be nice to get a level headed opinion on them. Ours is a 2.3d gx.
I know they are slow but thats not an issue to us and ive heard they are a bit noisy due to the mid mounted engine. But we needed at least a 6 seater this came up and it was cheap. I plan to put electric windows on the front 2, rear tints,alaram and possibly some alloys to tart it up a bit.
Loads of room in them though with the seats folded away and it should be great for camping and days out, dog walking etc. Plus i know nissan engines are very reliable too.
