I stumbled upon a Facebook group concerned with D-40 Navara chassis cracking, which causes the truck to basically fold up under stress. Has anyone been affected here in the U.S.? I wasn't able to find any mention of this on CF.

This seems to affect both UK and Australian vehicles (2005~2011), and the video below stated in passing that the chassis were made in Spain... Nissan is apparently buying them back if they're beyond repair.

Thoughts?

Suddenly our radiator cooler failures don't seem so bad! ;)

Got the opportunity to look over one of those spanish built ones once. While they look like the North American versions, they are WAY different. The chassis is one of the items I was surprised was so different. The crossmembers are not even the same. We don't get diesels either. They have rear drum brakes. Looking at the ARB catalog, the number of ring gear bolts in the rear axle even changes.
