I like the look of them but as you probably know they have had issues with the engines that affected about 5% of those made. I understand it was often poor maintenance that was a contributing factor. Nissan extended the warranty on the engines to restore faith after they fixed the cause of bent con rods. Yours might have been fixed when it was under warranty so service history is a must I guess.

Sorry to give the news if you are not aware. There is a lot of info on the www

My brother in law had one but after head gasket failure and some reliability issues he got rid after less than a years ownership.

Oh yessssss, the YD25 loves to throw the bottom end due to oil pathway issues at around 80k

That's why the TD27 makes big bucks when sent over to our cousins in Africa
