Then what happens ?

Constant ad blue problems which culminated with
him being stranded in the middle of a field.
Oil leaks in the engine compartment and suspension problems.
Nissan are substantialy cheaper than Toyota and there
is normaly a good reason for that.
Look at sh values and you have a job selling a Nissan for any value.
Trouble is how reliable are they to keep to get your value back out of it.

Edit
He will probably buy a Toyota shortly.

We've a yr old hilux and it's not as nice to sit in as the older ones. Good pickup but nobody likes it to drive as much as previous models

I would have agreed but the latest front end is just horrible putting me off unfortunately .
Treat the purchase in a similar fashion to dating a lady.

Maybe accept that the front end may not be reminiscent of Megan Fox, but trade this off against longterm reliability and low maintenance costs.

As my grandmother used to say, beauty should not be the primary factor, there are far more serious matters to consider, when entering into a longterm financial relationship.
