Do you own one?

I can go on the internet and find an article on somebody hating anything.

If you specifically own and hate it then post that.

My neighbor has one. He said that the lack of an engine hump between the front seats allows him to carry longer length lumber inside.

But that's at the cost of a longer vehicle....

Re: Article On Why I Hate The Nissan NV Cargo Van


I have had one for almost 3 years now. It is longer, and takes a little while to get used to. Other than that, it has been a fantastic vehicle. Decent mileage, very low maintenance, and some clever innovation. Rear doors swing open into magnets to keep them from flying shut, pre threaded holes for cargo shelving attachments, etc.

Sounds like my Ford Transit.

Not sure what the max length you can carry in the NV is since it doesn't have the hump. The longest transit can carry some 16' lumber inside. My medium length is limited to 14' which is kind of a pain with trim stock.

Re: Article On Why I Hate The Nissan NV Cargo Van


We all got a point.. so what. I dumped 2- sprinters for 2 of those ugly fkn dog nose mofo nv ... Don't care. Best value out there. Walked of the out for 24and change v6 2500 high top. . Sticker was 32. Tax credit business finance incentive even gave me 2500 for a wrap. Only down side... I lost 4 1/2" 12" up from floor due to bulk Head which is 3/4 ply. I can still fit 10ft lumber up to 12". Could go higher but too busy to give crap and too lazy to cut it higher. I don't care cause 95% of my stuff is roof top drop off by boom or crane. And I have roof rack for when I'm in a pinch for bug ladders. Go buy em really is Best value on market. If you do not need longer like 12' bed. Im in the City and have hard enough time finding a 20' parking spot. The nv is 19.6 bumper to bumper.

As long as you're happy. I opted for a custom 4x4 cube van.

That's the beauty of it though, physically it's probably a couple inches shorter than your NV, has a tighter turning radius, a shorter wheelbase, 4x4, can carry almost 8000 pounds with the body and has a GCVWR of about 20K. I work mostly in the city as well.

I haven't fit up the inside yet, just built a few ladder hooks and a shelf for wire boxes. I used 80/20 and aluminum angle extrusion. It's a work in progress...

Not many disadvantages. Price? Ride quality? Fuel economy? What are the inside dimensions?

In Canadian dollars the cab and chassy was a hair under 60k, the body was a hair under 15k....so not exactly cheap.

Ride quality is what you would expect, leaf spring on all 4 corners, right over the front axle, no air ride cab. It rides harsh...and it's slow.

Fuel economy is what you would expect, the mileage computer is saying 13.5 MPG but I'm thinking it's somewhere between 12 and 13...but I haven't been keeping track.

The inside useable dimensions on the box are around 12'7 long, 6'6" high and 7' something wide.
