Nissan Cabstar E CABSTAR E SWB DIESEL 2000 - 2004

4 star review

i have own this Nissan Cabstar E95 SWB tipper for about 6 months now. and for a 14 year old truck it has its moments steering always seems dodgy but that is one of the perks about sitting ontop of the front wheel. my bedford rascal was the same. these type ones are known for head gasket problems so chances are someones taken the thermostat out of it because its over heated and then some more. which results in a cracked cylinder head. which by the time you get that sorted the brakes seize on. make sure you get one that has a tip-able cap too. makes life so much easier. and also one with a plastic tank ans these metal ones rub and corrode on the tank hangers. i have welded mine up due to pin holes in the tank. other issues i have came across since. is previous owner to loose the fuel cap, and being a tipper had a loose load of stone. which most of it ended up in the fuel tank and other dirt blocked the fuel filter resulting in a breakdown the AA sorted out for me. ans 20miles down the road happened again. as i was doing 70mph. (unladen) so i could not do more than 60mph due to the fuel filter stopping me. got to my destination and got a new filter from halfords. and borrowed a filter strap from them and sorted that problem out there and then. and as soon as i got back home i done an oil and oil filter change. and cleaned the air filter out as it looked quite new. got a tow bar on it and fitted a treat no problems at all. only other thing i have to do is stop the brakes binding for some reason on the front. (think its the master not returning fluid.) overall. a really good truck on a good day. but i only recommend them if you can personally maintain them yourself. as i spent £500 in parts alone. the amount i done to it so far i could have easy spent £3000 on labour. more than what the trucks worth. overall i love it. so i give it a good 4/5
