Hi,

I am the (proud) owner of a Nissan Laurel C32 2.8 Diesel LX. The car is build in (march) 1988. It had one owner from new.
It has always been garaged. The car still has most of its original paint. The odo read 101.900 km when I bought it!

I' ve driven almost 6000 km with this Laurel in the last 2 months.
(now it reads 107.000 km)

And I have to say, it's a great car.
The car (and engine) runs great and the car is surprisingly economical.

However it does need some attention. (like most 22 year old cars)

The rear bumper is slightly damaged (was like this when I bought it).
(so needs replacing or fixing. or I can drive it as it is...)

I've recently replaced a rear wheel bearing (and some other stuff)

I've also just serviced it (with new fluids and filters)

With a bit of extra attention, this is a nice "cruiser".
(and in very nice condition for its age)

I'm not sure yet if I'll sell her or not.

I'm beginning to like the car more and more, so we'll see.

Some pics:

Great car in great condition!

This facelift version looks really nice.
If you have to money to take care of it it's not worth selling it!

Belive me, you won't find a car like this nowadays. They don't make them like this anymore. When you get to know it better you'll start to see the great engineering behind hit. This car was made by people who cared about what there were doing.

Recently I had to stop driving mine and I'm sad ever since. I couldn't find a replacement for it. Something with the same character and comfort.

Take care of it!

Thanks for the compliments on the car.

Sad to hear you don't drive yours anymore Florin.
There are indeed not that many Laurels out there.

Kind regards
Tim
