decent car if you are not a person who repairs own cars

dont bother buying any xtrail if you are a handy man my father owns one not the easiest car to repair sensors are quite common to go on these cars
good luck if you have a crank angle sensor to replace its at the back of the engine quite expensive to have a mechanic replace replaced my fathers very painful job such a nightmare cv joints are prone to fail all the time stay away pos to be honest Show details

The car I cannot wait to part with!

Unfortunately my Nissan X Trail 2020 model failed to deliver on comfort, fuel economy and extras and I cannot wait to part with it.

Whilst the size is good on the inside of the car and boot, there is little else I have been impressed with.

I feel Nissan stripped the car of all added extras such as seat adjuster on the side of the seat.

I purchased the car to drive to work In and use over the weekends, as a result it is used daily.

Our main issue is the poor suspension that we have had checked numerous times and have been advised it is standard and nothing is wrong with it. Most of the family get car sick in this car whilst not in my husbands car, I have also found to to be quiet jerky and far from a smooth drive. Show details

Nice to drive

The Nissan-Xtrail 2022 . I have just bought this car at one year old. It’s got a sunroof and tan leather seats. Drives lovely. The speakers have lovely sound. The aircon and blue tooth all work great. Nice amount of room in the boot with separating panels for organisation.
I didn’t want CVT but in the end I got a car with CVT. It makes a little more noise but the CVT is not too bad in this car. Overall it’s a nice drive. Show details

X-trail - not happy

Brought a brand new Nissan X-Trail in 2019. They only gave 3years warranty. Car just under 50 thousand kilometres and Lots of money I have spent on the car. I couldn’t fix few other ones as it was too expensive.
1) car’s electric seat motors failed. Not moving forward and back. Not repaired as it’s cost is too high.
2) car not reading key- not able to start. Called breakdown to take to repairer
3) unable to unlock steering wheel. Called breakdown to take to repairer
4) having suspension issue which is not repaired as it was too expensive.
Never recommend Nissan to anyone. Show details

Best new car I have owned

If there was a 4.5 I would give that. It drives well, super spacious compared to the competition, heaps of power, very comfy and has never had an issue.

Battery died at year 4 so no surprises. Manufacturer issue was a couple of panels came off the roof racks but Nissan was happy to replace them under warranty.

Am about to buy the new xtrail because I’ve had such a great experience with this car.

Highly recommend as a new car- unsure how they perform after year 5. Show details

Luvin it

Everything feels good. CVT transmission is the only bummer, lack of pick up, but no harm done. Does what a 4WD does + comfort. Show details

Very reliable and versatile but has some flaws

I drive 2011, petrol, FWD, and manual for over 5 years.
Purchased it in SEP 2017 with 130000km and doubled its odometer since.
I'll be focusing on the flaws:
The 1st speed and the reverse are quite fast, which means, to drive very slow under resistance (like towing or going uphill), you have to work the clutch and accelerate its wearing.
The clutch is a "Dual fly-wheel", which makes it extremely expensive to be replaced (like 4 times the price of another manual minivan's clutch).
the distance between the roof racks' bases is extremely short (less than 80cm) and fixed. it makes it valuable to the vertical forces applied on long cargo's edges (e.g. the front of a 4.2m long sea kayak). Show details

Perfect Adventurer on a Budget

2008, 2.0L Diesel, Manual. Used as daily, small bits off road use so far, performed well on the beach.
Averaging 1000km to a tank combined city/highway. So much power out of such a small engine.

Comfy interior. Huge amount of space. I have slept in it on a double air bed with back seats down.
Had enough room for 4 people and gear for a week away. Show details

2008 xtrail 2lt, diesel, keyless entry and start.
No previous problem, it will not start, engine turns over but does not fire up, my thoughts the car and keys have lost communication, what can I do to rectify this, if this is not the problem what else do I look for, nissn dealership has no idea so far.

My 2008 T31 Nissan XTrail has a CVT transmission that emits a whirring/whining high pitched sound whenever I take my foot of the accelerator. I have changed the CVT fluid and ensured that it was refilled at the correct level but the sound is still there. Can anyone help with this problem?
