Using common sense before uploading stuff goes a long way. Once something is made public on the internet it will never go away again.

Youtube may have blocked the link above... try typing 'navara crash russia' and see what happens.

I don't think it's fake, when an artic fully loaded at over 40ton slams into something weighing 2.5ton the result will always be what you saw in the vid. Either that or the Nav would have been crushed under the lorry.

Looking at the end of that vid it's clear that the lorry took a lot of damage too, but in an accident i know which vehicle i'd rather be in.

Still think it's shocking that so called "friends" would surrender this footage to anybody? :(

and this is why the navaras part time 4wd system is useless for half covered snow roads, unlike Mitsubishi's part time system, you cant have the navara in 4h when on the dry tar mac, but if the sides of the road are covered in snow and you touch them the nav turns into one of the most tail happy cars i have ever drove, it literally steps out sideways instantly. i really wish Nissan used the same system as the path finders or the Mitsubishi pajero/hairdresser wagon. because even if the roads are well coverd in snow and your in 4h turning corners is shite and the front wheels have to spin so they loose traction and if you hit a patch of grippy tar you get wind up.

you could do in a straight line - that guy could have had 4wd in where he was with no problem, I would have done if the road was slippery

slow down, then its fine. Any 4wd vehicle in snow will tend to understeer, its no problem if you are going at condition appropriate speeds

As i said on another thread according the the service manager at my local dealers, it is a compleat myth that the Pathfinder TC is any diffrent to the navaras
all it has it a computer that takes it out of 4wd when its not needed so although it would appear its in 4wd it actally isn't hence no wind up, some people swap the computer unit back wtih one from a nav as they prefer to know when its actall in 4wd and when it isnt

even in 4wd, if you had the wheels on one side on tarmac and the other side on ice you would still get spun toward the ice, infact in 4WD it would be even worse
no 4wd is not a substitute for correct driving technic and appropreiate speed it jsut helps you when stuck
