2000 Nissan Stagea now sold

Car now sold, thanks for all the enquiries!

Car now sold. But here’s what it was!

2000 Nissan Stagea Series 2

Factory Rear Wheel Drive (Not AWD converted)

RB25 Neo Turbo Engine

226xxx kms

Original OP6 Turbo blew on the journey from the Gold Coast QLD to Albury NSW and has been replaced by an R33 Factory turbo. New gaskets and fluids used during install.

Tiptronic Automatic with steering wheel shift switches

Stock standard aside from the wheels and Splitfire coilpacks. Everything else is factory including suspension.

Wheels are 17inch Stern 3 piece with some gutter rash (comes with McGard locknuts and removal tool). Unexciting tires have plenty of tread.

The good

-Aircon works well, nice and cold

-Oil changed every 5000k or so with Penrite Hpr-5 and 145a oil filter

-Power steering rack rebuilt when I first moved to the Gold Coast

-All drive belts recently replaced

-Comes with all mats, cargo net, cargo blind and dash mat. Door weather guards still holding on. Also Stagea manual in Japanese!

-No more loud turbo noise since replacement

Rocker cover leak all fixed

-Pioneer in car entertainment with bluetooth, usb dongle and digital radio. 6 inch speakers in each door.

-Great for a small family (handy when moving houses too!)

-Good on fuel when doing freeway driving (short trips not so much)

The bad

-Will need a timing belt

-Rust under both mirrors in the front doors. Pretty common with these models. No rust in the strut towers though which is usually where rust also appears on these cars.

-Front struts leaking with noticeable vibration at highway speeds

-Transmission leak at speed sensor (needs new o ring or convert to manual..)

-Gas struts on bonnet and boot worn

-Various scratches and marks on car (pretty much expected on a 20+ year daily)

-Front bar cracked from parking accident and a few scratches

Sadly it no longer gets used as much as it used to (used to be my daily, now walking to work daily) and for the occasional three hour trip from Albury to Melbourne, we’re looking for something a little cruiser and more comfy. So as great as it’s been, it’s time to move on.
