Always wanted to drive a pick-up? Read our Nissan Navara customer review

Always wanted to drive a pick-up? We’ve been speaking to our customer Richard, who we recently supplied with a Nissan Navara on a personal lease contract.  Read below to find out more on how his experience has been so far.  

What previous car did you drive? And what made you choose the Nissan Navara? 
I used to have a Mercedes A class. It was great but with a change of job and move to a new house a larger load lugging automatic was a top pick for me. I don’t need a truck for my work but the huge amount of storage space the Navara has to offer is perfect for me at the weekends. It has all the comforts and gadgets that I want and I can haul mountain bikes, dogs, camping gear and anything else without an issue.

How has your driving experience been so far? 
After a long weekend completing the ‘North Coast 500’ around the perimeter of Scotland, I’ve already clocked over 2000 miles. Loving how comfy the Navara is and have been happily surprised to find it returning over 40mpg on my daily commute.

What do you like most about the Nissan Navara? 
For me the Navara is top of the class for double cab pick-ups. Great engine and in the top spec it has almost every option you could want. The Navara has a really comfy driving position and the 360 cameras are a dream for parking such a large vehicle, which comes in especially handy when you live in a city like we do!

How easy was the process from ordering to delivery? 
Previously I had not had a great experience with a leasing company, however Neil Barlow at CVSL was awesome. Right from my initial enquiry he knew what I wanted and was able to secure me a stock vehicle in my colour and spec within 24 hours. The whole process, right the way through to delivering the truck to my place of work, was perfect. I will be recommending him and no doubt using CVSL again when we are looking for a replacement for our other car.

Looking to lease a new van? Here are some things to consider…

By only considering an initial quote, you could find what seems to be a cheap option quickly becomes one of the most expensive. Take the time to investigate the following factors to make sure that you really are choosing the best van for you.

  1. Service interval. How far will your van go before it’s going to cost you money? Most vans will make it to around 25,000 miles before they need servicing, but there are some that can manage 30,000 miles before you may need to pay a visit to the garage. Doing your research before choosing a van will save you money in the long run.
  1. Service costs. When your van does need a service, how much is that going to cost you? Even if you don’t plan on having maintenance included in your lease contract, get a quote done anyway. Quotes are based on predicted mileage and predicted costs over the term, so can be quite telling as to when the cheapest van has the potential to turn into the most expensive.
  1. How far is your fuel going to go? If your mileage is high, this factor could well outweigh the initial leasing charges. For example, a newer model might cost more than previous versions, but at 10% better efficiency it will swiftly make up for that in fuel costs.

Everyone’s situation is different and it may well be that the cheapest headline quote ends up being the cheapest option for you. But it’s only when you investigate all the factors that you really get the true picture of how much your van is going to cost you in the long run.
