New hilux invincible or navara tekna

Recommended Posts

One problem I have heard about with the new Navara ( from the Nissan mechanic Dez from Yorkshire engine supplies vid Youtube ) is there is something that rubs and eventually wears through the bottom radiator  hose and dumps all your coolant . This is prevented buy the simple fix of attaching a cable tie to it to keep it out of the way . If you want to know all about Navaras , pros and cons its worth watching his vids .

The only trouble I had was the starter went 3 months ago apart from that never skilled a beat. 

Only trouble I had was with forward facing camera housing trapping moisture and tripping out all the features. It was eventually acknowledged as a type fault and remedied with a Toyota mod which included a heater element in the shroud. 


That and disappointing early onset underbody corrosion. 


Other than that, all was dandy.

Not sure about that.


I had the 3l invinsible on a 65 plate.  Sold after a year as I moved to Norway.  I bought the new shape here in Norway and it is great to drive.  I would even say it surpasses the older model.


My 3l felt almost tractor like when I upgraded it from my Navara Tekna.

I like my 3ltr invincible, but often think about upgrading mainly for the need for 3,5t towing ability,

navara n-guard is top of the list if I go for a new mainstream motor, better spec, warranty and can tow 3,5t
