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?

I have just purchased a Nissan xtrail 2021 ST model with 18000 klms. Vehicle jerks slightly when going uphill at 20 + klms plus when driving between 50-60 klms. Should I be worried about CVT transmission. Plus intelligent key sometimes opens all doors, most of the time just opens drivers door. This happens when using control near car as well as when I press the button on the door. (Don’t have key in my hand). Also no beep sounds when in reverse ready to move, if vehicle or person goes behind you. Bev

nissan xtrail stl 2013. Temperature on 18 and 19 on control knob blows cold air but when changed to 20 on dial it blows hot air. There is no slow change. How can this be fixed.

Our 2016 nissan xtrail SUV has air con problems since the second year . The aircon blows hot and cold air when it likes and moves through the auto and inside and outside air when it turns off the cool air?
Nissan put German aircon in this model after using a japanese one. Had aircon checked no leaks.
2024/ aircon still not working properly ? Bayside Nissan say we should replace the compressor at $2000 and then recheck? Ridiculous! Have been told to check electrics component only $600 too and then recheck? ReallY? Heat sensor or electrical will get checked.
Anyone know in my model what was common fix in the aircon in the states?

I have exactly the same issue, I got it repaired under warranty then once it was out of warranty Nissan wanted nothing to do with it so I payed $1,500 to get it fixed 2 years ago and it’s now doing exactly the same thing again and I have no idea what it could be

Typical xtrail air con every one of them are no good, The problem is in the condensor its leaking gas, so when they replace them they are replacing them with the same condensors with the exact same problem Nissan went from Japanese Nippondenso brand to german manufactures. Nissan just turns a blind eye to it they know what it it is

Same problem with mine, fixed it under warranty, they replace some parts, I think high pressure pipe, but problem came back. then I found out from other xtrail owner that it's a faulty evap sensor. I replaced mine, fairly easy cost $35, no problem since.

Same issue with me. After 3rd year, the air cond is having the same issue as yours. Brought to Nissan service center, they asked me to replace the condenser and it cost a bomb. Then it happened again few months after that, they told me it was a censor/ temperature control. It keeps recurring every now and then. Never ending story...

For people with AC issues, folks in the US are seeking legal avenues to get compensation. See “nissanairconditioningproblem dot com” we need this in Australia!

The North American owners took a class action against Nissan over the X-trail cvt failings and won. They achieved an extended warranty and service bulletin to address this issue.
Nissan Australia has not sought to follow suit as they have little customer care and know the likes of VCAT look after them rather than owners

Btw, the second time my aircon went, the first at 80k and second around 100k, I got rid of my x-trail and vowed never to buy another Nissan.
Now a Kia Sorrento owner.
Service, support, quality, running cost, reliability and warranty leave Nissan for dead.
114 k now on the speedometer with no regrets

Hi All, I have a 2009 Nissan X Trail 2.0diesel T31 with a knocking sound that got louder and quicker when i acclerated. No smoke at the exhaust and starts first time every time. It had a P0488 error code. Changed the EGR valve and still a knocking sound. Changed the belt and also put in fuel cleaner and oil cleaner. However still knocking sound. Do i need to drive the car for so many miles. No error code at the minute. Thoughts experts please....

The transmission issue may be serious and you better get it checked ASAP (Not sure whether the steering issue is related).
What type of transmission do you have, is it CVT?
There is a great community of "Australian X-trail owners" on FB.

I have a 2017 Xtrail at the time of purchase had under 20,000Kms was a great. I purchased from a Nissan dealership, I get it regularly serviced at that Dealership. The car is used for me to tavel to and from work and take my children to sport etc, only ever been on the bitumen around Perth. At a service car had 69,000kms I was told they had to replace both upper arms on suspension costing me $1778. I was due for another service this week now I being told the gaskets around my timing belt/chain need repairing at an estimated cost of $3,200 car now has 76,000km. The Nissan dealership I purchased the car from and has done all the servicing since. Has anyone else had similar problems with their Trails, I feel that for the low Kms my car has these repairs don't seem right. Any feedback would be welcomed. Thank You/

Have been trying to remove the "blank" next to the Hill Decent Control to check size required before purchasing a switch I need to install there.
Forums say to hit the blank with screwdriver handle and drive down and out. The one fitted is a tight fit and not sure I will get it out without damage to the blank. Tried a little Silicone spray to ease it but no joy. Any alternative methods would be appreciated. Cheers
