Hi all,

I'm looking for a van and think the nissan nv200 could be perfect!!

I want a van mainly for transporting my ktm dirt bike around and for the occasional weekend trip camping.

Is the Nissan nv200 big enough for 2 people to sleep in?

What sort of mpg should I expect? I do 70 miles a day (67 of which is motorway miles)?

How much is the road tax?

Are they powerful enough to comfortable do 70mph on the motorway?

Most importantly - are they reliable and what sort of things do I need to look out for when buying one?

Thanks in advance

Pete

Pete-

I bought mine about 6 weeks ago, and I'm in Massachusetts. I'd say you're good on most counts.

good length, good depth at 48" between wheel-wells, many attachment points to secure the bike. I do highway at 60-65max @1600rpm so should be no problem at 70.

So the van should be underpowered, but I'm loving the CVT transmission gives it better performance I think than if it was geared. Its kinda always in the right ratio. Its a pleasure to drive on SMOOTH roads, And light so you'll notice it getting blown around on a windy day.

The main issues I hear of is the proprietary tires wearing quickly, and CVT failure at 50k is a possibility. Oh and a floppy visor.

But I love mine totally, and think its a great choice for my AV (TV & theater & sound) business. Id say compare the NX200 to the Ford Transit Connect. Theyre both nice, yet have some reliability issues.

Good luck!

I use mine every day I get about 35 to 37 MPG runs great I have 22k on it . got it in Dec. of 15 just keep the oil clean.. I did a drain and fill on the trans. it takes 3.5 Qts. on a drain and fill only and have changed the oil every 4k rotate the tires at each oil change . this thing will last forever

Are you in the US or Europe? I think the vans are slightly different sizes. Mine is averaging 46mpg on a euro spec van. Should get better as the engine loosens up.
