The Nissan Navara “snapped” chassis issue is the latest defect of a major manufacturer to grace the news. Thanks to a report from The Sun this week and a growing Facebook group called “Nissan Navara Snapped Chassis” the Navara is definitely getting a lot of attention for all the wrong reasons. The problem is contained to the Navara D40 produced between 2005 to 2008.
The overall issue appears to be that rust gets to the chassis rails which corrodes and weakens the vehicle. Eventually leading to the vehicle essentially “snapping” in half. There are plenty of pictures on the internet and it appears that many customers are upset, with the formation of groups such as Nissan Navara Snapped Chassis Group on Facebook.
It appears that Nissan are aware of the issue and made it completely clear that they are “backing customers even with vehicles as old as 12 years by offering free and independent inspections of vehicles where appropriate. If the inspection shows there’s an issue, we’re do the right thing by the customer under our warranty and customer service policies.” However, no official recall has been announced.
