    My car

    I bought a 54-plate SVE with 20,000 miles at two years old. All was fine until the three years was up!

    Then the intercooler failed six weeks after the three-year service was done - it cost £250, then this month the turbo failed. Disappointed or what?

    With the help of the dealer, I raised a complaint with Nissan UK - within two days, they'd offered a free turbo with me paying for gaskets and labour. I'm now working on getting compensation for the intercooler through the same route.

    The car itself is good to drive - it has an excellent driving position and all the bells-and-whistles I didn't know I needed.

    Don't be fooled by the size, though - the haulage capacity of the boot area is less than a decent-sized estate.

    My car

    I've got a 2005 X-Trail 2.2dci Sport. I have only owned it since Nov 2007 and it only lasted 12 weeks before it started to cut out at 2000 revs, which would not be funny had i been towing a caravan. This happened twice before it had to go back and have a new fuel pump. Then in April the Turbo went. Thank god that the car is still under warranty. Nissan still deny that there are any problems with either of these faults. I now see that i have only two options left. I can either sell the car before the warranty runs out or i can need to get an extended warranty that will cover these parts. I really wish that i had read these reports before i brought the car.

    My car

    I've got a 2005 X-Trail 2.2 dCI Sport. It has been recalled twice because of problems with the fuel tank filler tube and the boost relay sensor. In the process it also had two EMS units.

    Last week it cost me £1200 to get it serviced, requiring all new brakes and an intercooler. At 35,000 miles, that was unexpected.

    My car

    05, 2 years and 9month old. Currently in the garage again.

    I'm a electronics field engineer travelling 40K miles per year approx.

    Current mileage 95,000 ish.

    The story so far: 4 intercoolers. 2 turbos 1 waste gate actuator 2 boost relays 2 FUEL PUMPS (BIG BUCKS).... 1 Common rail system and pressure Sensor(BIG BUCKS)..

    Thank god my car's a Lloyds TSB auto lease car.

    We have three of the vehicles in the company, similar problems on all to varying degrees.

    Watch your mileage, and may the force or your cheque book be with you.

    Love the car - hate the engine.
