The 2012 Nissan Navara has a pretty good reputation for passing the MoT: vans.honestjohn.co.uk/mot/nissan/navara/2012

However, when it comes to everything else the Nissan has a mixed report. Timing chains are known to break and halfshafts are also known to wear rather excessively. Personally, I wouldn't go near one without a full service history. For the full used Nissan Navara buying guide, see: vans.honestjohn.co.uk/used-van-buying-guides/nissa.../

If you want alternatives, I'd check out the Ford Ranger vans.honestjohn.co.uk/van-reviews/ford/ranger-2011/ and the Toyota Hilux: vans.honestjohn.co.uk/van-reviews/toyota/hilux-200.../
