Nissan Urvan URVAN DIESEL 1987 - 1996

5 star review

Bought this van used 7 years ago, amazing machine, was a working van up to 2012 when I converted it to a camper as I did not need it for work anymore, still on its original battery, famous TD series non-electronic diesel engine (London cabbie's favourite) still starts first go, hot or cold. None of that horrible common-rail junk, cast iron cylinder head used here, with gear driven injector pump & camshaft. No belts and no chains to stretch or break. It is the last of the true proper Nissan vans, the Primastar which followed it is just badged Renault junk. Only mechanical items needed was a new alternator and recon front callipers. Main gripe is the shoddy painting & rustproofing carried out by the OEM. These vans and their Hiace brethern are now sought after for export to Africa because of the rugged simple mechanicals and lack of stupid electronics. No oil leaks, diff & gearbox perfect, all electrical items work as intended and lovely to drive, if a little noisy because of the engine's location in the cab.
