    Hope that’s easily fixed.

    I really like the Renault badged version of the Navara (Alaskan), but even the oldest used ones go for over €30K which is way more than I’d foolishly hoped to spend.

    Yeah me to - I got a good price on this and really like the vehicle overall to be fair but it has already been a bit of hassle. If I decide to keep a pickup long term I think I will go for the Amarok.

    "Exhaust Gas Recirculation Throttle Control Circuit "A" Range/Performance" - dunno much about that part of the system dunno if it was due to the extreme cold though a vehicle like this should handle it really hah. Gonna hit up the dealer Monday.

    More time I spend with this vehicle the more obvious it is Nissan have cheaped out, often for seemingly no real good reason, wherever they thought they could get away with it - not my first experience of this with Nissan - which is kind of sad as otherwise this would be a decent vehicle. Puts me right off ideas of a GT-R down the road. Glad I didn't pay that much for this one.

    If I decide to keep a pickup long term will be going straight back to VW with the Amarok.

    At the expense of posting several times in a row - they are going to replace the whole EGR valve they tried refurbishing it but after a few miles of testing it would throw up the same error again so looks like the sensor is faulty (second faulty sensor we've found so far :( ). From a look at the computer - 22,000 miles at an average 15mph and a bit of interpreting the previous trip history data it looks like it has spent most of its life in start-stop traffic meaning the engine (diesel) has never really got to run properly - it has not been used off-road or as a workhorse, etc.
