Nissan Owner Car Reviews

2006 Nissan Tiida ST-L review

The unloved Tiida. Is this the most underrated car in Australia? I purchased my 2006 Nissan Tiida ST-L hatch in October 2018. I had seen it on a car sales website for about two months before deciding to make the trip from Melbourne to Rye to see it. When I arrived at the (then) owner's house, I saw a very poorly looking, faded black Tiida with grass growing around it...

2009 Nissan X-Trail ST (4x4) review

When the T32 X-Trail succeeded the T31 in 2014, the TV advert showed a family taking a shortcut through a farm. When they arrived at the other side the kids in the back were covered in gunk and milkshake. Even running over a hose was enough to send a cascade of green slime leaping from its container...

1999 Nissan Pulsar SSS review

After having my Pulsar Plus stolen while I was at work one day, there was a N15 shaped hole in my heart. But after a few months a British Racing Green (as I like to call it) SSS showed up on Facebook marketplace. Not knowing how to drive manual yet, I had the seller drive me around the hills. I was happy with what I saw and $1200 bucks later I had a car that my friend drove home for me...

2013 Nissan GT-R review

So, 10 years into Godzilla’s life and a common question is whether the GT-R, a Nissan - can really be called a Supercar. It is a constant source of conflict between the automotive elite and the surveyors of Nürburgring Lap times. From the exotic, cutting edge lines to the sub-3 second 0-100 sprint time, others are inclined to agree...

2007 Nissan 350Z Touring review

I'd owned my Z for 3 and a half years and it had been a joy. I have always been a car enthusiast and it had been time to buy my first interesting car. I'd wanted a rear-wheel drive manual with a characterful engine. I was also at a life stage where backseats were optional. The 350Z fit the bill and was a very affordable second hand...

2012 Nissan Almera ST review

I borrowed this car for a week on the Car Next Door car sharing app while the money pit was getting some work done on it. I needed a cheap run around that was big enough for two child seats and my work gear. This is a model that I admit I have never really taken any notice of, but after driving the car for a week, it has really gown on me...

2018 Nissan X-Trail ST-L (2WD) review

I’m in my late 60’s and have been considering an SUV for some time, because of the ease of getting in and out, and the elevated driving position. The X-Trail wasn’t on my radar until I drove one - my son’s ST 2.5-litre 7-seater. I was impressed, so when I saw this one advertised I bought it without a second thought...

2010 Nissan 370Z review

I had owned the stunning Nissan 370Z for a very short time. It had always been a car of choice in the current markets against the Mazda MX-5, Toyota GT86, along with the Subaru BRZ. I believe it was aimed for the entry-level sports car market for car enthusiasts and people who’re loyal to the brand...

2001 Nissan Maxima S review

Hello everyone! My name is Kenny and this is my review about the A33 Nissan Maxima. It is a model that I personally fell in love with, and essentially (in my view) it's a forgotten classic in a soon to be forgotten category. Hence this review is to remind every CarAdvice reader of the importance of 4-door sports cars with rear spoilers...

2014 Nissan Micra ST review

I'm an idiot for selling this car. I went on holiday to Adelaide once and had one as a renter and found it a charming little thing to flog around the hills and wineries. I had a tiny driveway entrance at home to deal with, so when it was time to get a car the Micra was top of the list...

2018 Nissan X-Trail ST-L 7 Seat (2wd) review

When our beloved Aussie family wagon of 17 years finally had us doing an expected cardio sessions four times in two weeks, we knew it was time to upgrade, or cancel our gym memberships! After a quick test drive of a sub-$30K ST Nissan X-Trail, I was impressed. The electric steering was light and effortless...
