Hello everyone in the NV200 community. Recently installed TSW 20 x 8.5 wheels and 245/35/R20 tires. The previous set was TSW 18 x 8 and 245/40/R18.

Hello, everyone. My name is Ty and I am from Pennsylvania, USA. I bought a used NV200 to operate my mobile bicycle repair shop and I absolutely love it. I am glad that we have this site for help and advice!

Hi from sunny Yorkshire in the UK. I've just bought a white 2013 NV200 that's done 15,000 miles. Bought it as a runabout for my wife as she wanted a van! I drive a double cab Nissan Navara.
First job is to fit some bigger wheels than the tiny 14" rims we get in the UK. Have seen a set 16" alloys with 195/55 R16 tyres for sale quite cheap so thinking of fitting those.

Big differnce in terms of Fuels comperative to Navara I asume....

Hi Everyone. Just got my 2015 Black NV200. Loved these vans for years but had a T5 camper, so sold that and got an ex-tradies van. They kept it really nice and is just panelled and has a roof rack, ideal for a hobby van. Well into cycling and paddle boarding. I live on the south coast of England, so plenty of opportunity to get out there and enjoy, especially the south downs. Not too much planned for the van, I want to keep the load capacity and original look. Might re-do the cabin carpets and while I'm at it, carpet the rear. I've got some Dodo sound deadening to get the rear and side doors to 'thud' like the front. Looking forward to sharing what's happening and happy to hear from anyone. All the best Maff in Hampshire.

Hi Bob, I'm sure you've checked out the difference in speedo readings as they can be drastic. No doubt they will fill the ample wheel arch really nicely, but you may just want to check out Tire size calculator: compare tires online to know what the difference is. Hope this helps. Myself I've looked into 15's at 175/65/15, which has only a marginal impact. Maff

You physically can't go larger without modifying the body.

Hi everyone new owner here 2013 Tekna with 18000 miles,yes only 18000, metallic grey,a cracking van and everything working good .The only thing I have noticed is that there is no side light / headlamp light on the dashboard (the blue lamp) everything else working fine. can any one confirm that it does have one fitted, before I pull the dash cluster out. main beam light works fine.
Cheers

There is no side light indicator - the only indication you have that you've switched the lights on is that the dash light go dimmer - this confused me when I got mine couple of years back.

I think I got it wrong - it's the instrument lights come on when you switch lights on I think - that's the only indication. Battery out of mine at mo so can't check, but I remember it foxing me, chasing a fault that wasn't there

New to the Nv200 - company delivered a new 2020 to my door this morning..
Im in Tennessee .. I drive an average of 400 miles a day .. over 2 million miles on the road.. you can say I drive a tad.

What made me look at the nv200 was the company I work for .. would have rather had the nv1500 ..but I dont make the choice :)

Hi all,

Jon from Sussex, England. Bought an NV200 (1.5DCi,90bhp, 7-seat Acenta) last summer and have been converting it to a day camper.

I have a couple of mods that people might benefit from knowing - I bought aftermarket alloys - 16x7 (w/40mm offset), fitted with 205/55/R16 all-season tyres. Would recommend this to all. Vehicle stays in a straight line now, great handling, barely changed fuel economy, pothole-resistant, impressive stopping-power, and has 'fixed' the speedo over-read so it is now bang-on. Tyre diameter changed by 5.5% so I lost that in acceleration. Slightly more revs needed on hill starts, which brings me to my next mod:

Recently got a custom ECU remap from AMD Tuning near Dartford. Excellent service - took it from 94hp to 116hp! with similar bump in torque and shockingly improved throttle response. Overtaking feels much safer now, with no drop in fuel economy (possibly better town/country mpg - more testing needed). Happy to talk more about this if you are considering one.

I've put sound-deadening all over, and foam insulation. I can advise on how much you'd need as I overbought. Doors sound executive now - highly recommended.

Thanks for the info I've read on this site. Hope I can give a little back.

. I'm in the US. Getting close to pulling the trigger. There is really no other option for what I want one for & that is a small, short term camper. We don't get the manual trans option here, which is what I would choose over the CVT. Last year, I went van shopping and ended up buying a new 2019 Frontier 4x4.

Not sure how that happened..🤔 I suppose it was learning the 5 sp. auto frontier was going away.. Hopefully, I'll come home with what I intend to buy this time.
Edit- I took another short interstate run in an NV200 and at the end thought for sure I was going to buy in May. I had just bought the frontier in march of 2019, so, was trying to stretch it out a bit. After the afternoon passed, driving my frontier, I realized I wouldn't be content traveling long distances in the NV.
It's a great little van with potential if they'd have fitted it w/ a better, more robust drive train. I tried the transit connect in the past but it failed my EMF meter test. There is massive radition in those & they won't tell me how to disable it if I were to buy one. So, I'm done w/ the new stuff I guess. Will have to go retro.. Rear drum brakes on the NV anyway.. so.. that will be the case w/ an older van. Just venting at that lack of choices here in the US. Many of us know why that is our current reality. 😴😑

2021 NV200 Compact Cargo, glass-less

Hi, NVForum
Yesterday I sent my 2000 Toyota Land Cruiser to live with it's new daddy, so ...
Today I took delivery of "The Fridge" this AM. An NV200SV, in white, window-less, compact cargo van. Here in Northern California the NV200s are going fast, so I was glad to get one of the last no glass examples around.

The LC just never seemed to fit what I was hoping to do with it, and what a thirsty old girl she was, Gallons to the Mile, almost. I'll be looking into camper stuff as I will be using it for fishing rampages and general escape stuff. It may even see a motorcycle on board once in a while.

Cheers!
