Looking to buy a L200 or a Navara, what MPG do you get out of them and what are they like for reliability? Thanks :thumbs:

L200 300 miles on a tank, fortune when they start going tits up, £600+ to change out timing belts etc, £500 to change out a leaf springs & the insurance companies will have your pants down with “commercial” insurance.......

navaras better on fuel by miles and l2s have big engine problems too. in my opinion get a well serviced navara!

Ive had a navara for 3yr's now and touch wood it has been a dream to drive and ive had no trouble at all with it.. i have just recently done a trip of 190miles in it and it cost me £28 so if there is anyone out there that can work the MPG out go for it.. http://www.thehuntinglife.com/forums/pub... ..

Me and hippy chick have just had the calculator and conversion chart out and we came up with 31.5 MPG and i did not go to school either.. http://www.thehuntinglife.com/forums/pub... ..
The miles i done where a mixture of motorway and country lane's and sometime's my foot got a little heavy when over taking.. http://www.thehuntinglife.com/forums/pub... ..but never over 80MPH..also the back of the vehicle was fully loaded with equipment so im thinking if i done 65/70MPH all the way with no extra weight i would be getting 35+MPG..
One other point the oil filter is a piece of piss to change also they have a timing chain so they is no belt to change..

i didn't do that bad, 2 mpg out :D still good though :D

We've got a Navara, on a 01 plate.
Had it 3 years and not had anything major go wrong on it. Love it, great to drive for such a big lump!
Would recommend good tyres tho, stop the back end sliding in damp/greasy conditions.
Fuel wise... re reckon we get about 25 - 30mpg depending on how /where it's driven.
