Nissan Xtrail - Best Value for money

published

Best of the xtrails are those built between 2002 to 2007. Mine is auto has done 200k and still drives like a new vehicle. SErvicing is cheap approx $250 every 15,000km. Drives like a car whilst also get the benefit of all wheel drive.

Update after 6 years

Excellent fuel consumption from the auto. Normally around 8.6 l/100km. Comfortable on long distances. Great tourer. Not sure about the rated 3000kg towing capacity though! (more like 2.5k) 4X4 capability quite acceptable I have no need to climb mountains any more. Paint work will fade like all new cars. reversing lights are poor, even when fitted with stronger bulbs.
Great car. Drives well, comfortable with plenty of space.Fuel consumption. Looks good.
Hate the small instruments on the dash Problem with fuel gague never showing full. Apparently a commom thing for this model.

+1 on the boot mat. What sort of economy are you getting? I took mine ( 2007 ST-S) to Sydney airport and back with a round trip of 640km and after dong the math it worked out at 8.48L/100.

Now 125k on the clock never a hickup - loveit

published

Mine is an early model 2003 4 door, bought it at 79k on the clock in 08 and had a full service replaced all belts and lubes and fitted a new battery and BTA towbar. The car has been great for work and play. took us up through lake mungo nat park last chrismas, now at 125 k it hasnt missed a beat. I did get used to the centre mounted dash in about 3 mins. fuel eco is good a bit thursty when in 4wheel lock.
id by another xtrail whithout hesitation
ergonimic and comfortable to drive and ride in,
no mat in the back, I cut one from some carpet, vision when reversing, needs sensors or camera, I fitted a reversing beeper tells the kids to get out the way

A very good car and one we will keep for years. We got a demo model with 5000kms on the clock and it has never let us down. The 4WD auto function is fantastic in the wet and gives you extremely good traction. Nice and light if you wanted to go on sand. In all a very good buy for the price.
The features it comes standard with are very good quality. The rubber matts seem to last forever and the towbar is unbreakable. Ample power with the 2.4L 4 cyclinder.
A bit of a fuel guzzler on the highway when the cruise control is switched on. The quality of the original tyres are suspect as well.

We loved our Extrail. I was a great car for driving to work. It doubled as an adventure car for the week ends.
Ecanomical and easy to drive
No cons to mention.

It's a great crossover apart from the minor steering and ride comfort issues.The fuel consumption is amazing!.And the towing is spectacular.My favourite thing about the car is the styling.The styling is not too girly but it doesn't look angry.
Very good space,great fuel effiency and towing.
Ride comfort and steering.

I think it's a great 'family' car, however I took it on the beach and the 4X4 light came on after 20 min of driving, this means the car goes in to front wheel drive mode only. This is not ideal when driving on sand! Some people call these cars "soft roaders" and if you keep this in mind you can't go wrong.
X-Trail Ti: The car goes well off road as well as on road.Unreal twin spot caliper brakes.The engine makes good power.If you get the luxury pack it comes with just about everything accept a coffee machine.
Nissan claim 10 litres per 100km (no chance), try 12 litres per 100km.Interior scratches very easy.Cup holders when used also scratch the dashboard.In the automatic version you cannot empty the ash tray without selecting a gear.
