Split in­de­ci­sion

Herald Sun - Motoring - - Ask Smithy -

MY wife ran off the road in our 2008 Nis­san Navara STX and hit a bump and the car broke in half. We had owned the ve­hi­cle since new and it had never been in an ac­ci­dent. Our in­surance com­pany de­clined to fix the chas­sis as they say they don’t re­pair such faults. I have been told that you have had some other prob­lems with Navara chas­sis re­ported to you. I would really like to con­tact those peo­ple so I can take it to the De­part­ment of In­fra­struc­ture and Trans­port. I see this as a ma­jor prob­lem with the Navara.

We­haven’t had any other re­ports like yours, which shows ma­jor crack­ing of the chas­sis, enough to make the ve­hi­cle a write-off. The best course of ac­tion for you is to con­sult an en­gi­neer who can as­sess the fail­ure and hopefully de­ter­mine what caused it.
