Greetings folks,

Yesturday I purchased a brand new 2015 NV200SV Compact Cargo van in "Fresh Powder" or let's skip the Hallmark description, basically white.

I purchased a 2015 model since the price was right. I got the Technology Package as optional factory equipment although I would have like to get the rear window package with the van coloured black.

I have no intentions of using it for any type of business related transport. My main objective in buying this "ugly duckling" was purely for transporting my windsurfing gear and for personal logistical reasons (I am having a house built and may need the capacity to quickly transport bulky material.)

Hence, I should not be power or gross weight limited which appears to be major complaint on this excellent forum.

To say the truth, if Toyota still built the 1989 Cargo Van, I would have bought another; the Nissan NV200 Compact Cargo van is the closest thing to what is still the most practical vehicle I owned from 1989 to 2003.

However, the NV200 is a significant improvement from the foregone Toyota Cargo Van in that it has an automatic transmission, cruise control, air conditioning, electric windows, heated mirrors, two sliding doors, two 40/60 split rear doors and more equipment than my Toyota Cargo Van. This vehicle, despite it's limitations for some is a significant improvement over my last cargo van which was also extremely power limited; you press the accelerator pedal and the only increase one could feel was the level of noise vice power produced by the engine but I still enjoyed it and never got a speeding ticket. Let's just hope the power train is as reliable as that of the Toyota.

I hope to contribute to this forum in a positive way.

J'hésite à faire le saut pour un NV200 2015 parce que je roule du toyota et je ne vais jamais au garage , jamais de problème mécanique ...niet . Le seul Nissan ( sentra '95 également construit au Mex. ) que j'ai eu dans ma vie a eu quelque pépin , des ctrl de clim qui lâche et une clutch brulée à 55k . Rien de trop grave . La fiabilité de la cvt me fait peur , ok elle est de seconde genération sur le '15 ( les '13 ont eu des problèmes ...à la Murano et altima ) . Peux tu me parler de ton expérience avec ton Nv . Passe à coté des pneus , ils seront à changer au jour 1 , pour le reste , es-tu tjrs rendu au concessionnaire pour de pépins ??? Aussi j'ai peur que les journée de vent soient un problème avec le nv . J'ai eu un Rondo et je l'ai changer car je le trouvais trop fatiguant à conduire sur de grande distance quand il ventait . Merci d'avance .
