I can't describe in words just how this car this car and the dealership have made my wife and I feel. Its ok to drive, not bad on fuel and looks nice. But for god's sake DONT TOUCH THEM WITH A BARGE POLE! In 2 years the CD player has packed up twice has been replaced but won't work properly in the cold, body mouldings have come away from doors several times and had to be stuck back on, the battery overcharged and nearly exploded, the 'sports' seats are covered in water marks because from the door design water drips onto the edges and now the fuel pump has packed up and is set to cost over £1000.This is a vehicle with only 43 K and main dealer service history. As for the dealer, I have never dealt with such a complete bunch of incompetants. Phone calls never returned, being put on hold for 5 minutes while they go through the charade of checking that work is being done 'as we speak' only for me to pop in and find it still parked where I left it 2 days prior! The saga of waiting days for a loan car to be available then driving over 20 miles to find the've given it to someone else. the list goes on. The dealership staff couldn't care less Nissan UK couldn't care less and bat it back to you to take it up with the dealership because its a franchise. From other reviews its Turbos and fuel pumps that are shot and Nissan are happy to let that continue.....WALK AWAY from the showrooms now................
I bought an '04 plate 2.2 Sport brand new. It has now done 18600 miles & the turbo has blown! This is despite having it's scheduled services carried out at Nissan dealerships. Thankfully the dealer finally agreed to cover the £1500 bill. This episode has shacken my faith in Nissan. From reading the other reviews posted on this site it's clear there's a problem with the turbo unit on X-Trails. I'm not sure I would risk buying another...!
Well, I bought this car used for my first car as i just passed my driving test in November and have had it for one month.
It is a 2003 X-Trail Sport 2.0L petrol. Now it says avoid them but i did not because of the 2.2 early diesel's had a fault with the turbo that could take the engine out.
It is a superb drive with great on- and off- road driving! Great on motorways and feels massive - i'm driving it like a lorry! It is very stylish as i like the Tonka interior - it shows off it's 4x4 toughness! It's handling is 5 out 5 - dead on perfect. The manual gearbox is great and all electronics are great! I have done 3000 miles in one month and it cannot be faulted on anything. It starts, drives and everything is 100% perfect!
Now the bad bits: PETROL PETROL PETROL!
Do i need to say more? I live in London and petrol kills me, especially since i am 18! I travel to Cheltenham every weekend and it costs me £30 one way. Well, as you say, you pay for luxury.
Around town it does £7 with no re-filling for about 2/3 days. So not really bad.
Interior is so comfy, but don't opt for leather. It is cheap and stretches and tears easily. the sporty cloth interior is much more stronger and stylish.
Tax in London is around £130 every 6 months so that'svery expensive for a first car, but great for a farmer or anyone who can afford it.
I have had this car for three years now, and when it was new, it had loads of electrical problems - it was always in the garage.
Now at 70,000 miles the car has started to have a dangerous engine idle fault - when you stop, the enguine will not go over 2000 revs. I booked it into a Nissan dealer - they put it on for a diagnostic check, but now it will not start. They say it will cost £2000 to replace the fuel pump.
'Why?' I said. They said it wasn't their fault. I called the head office, but they do not care and said I must pay. I got nowhere with them. My advice is to steer clear - apparently they have big problems even with the new model.
