    My car

    Owned for 4 months and drove down through France in summer, fantastic holiday car with loads of space for family and luggage. Have managed to get 44 calculated mpg over a tankful which I think is fantastic for size of car. Looking forward to testing its winter capabilities. Whole family love this vehicle !

    My car

    I've owned this X-trail for just under a year (62 plate). During that time it has been totally reliable and is a pleasure to drive. It copes well in really bad weather (snow and flooded roads during the winter months) and also the many pot holes that seem to be the norm now. Having, owned a CRV in the past, I do concede that it is less car like, but that does make it more rugged. Many don't like the boxy looks, but I kind of prefer it to the curvy looks of the many other SUV rivals. I suppose the sign of a good car, is whether you would buy again, and if that is the case then I certainly would. Many may prefer the more prestigious brands LR, VW and so on. Having had a VW in the past I'm not too sure what the fuss is. Anyway, I digress overall the X-trail is a good buy and I don't think you can go far wrong.

    My car

    I have just picked up my X trail from a Cambridge dealer even though I live in West Yorkshire. Why?...because I managed to save almost £7k off the list price. The 160 mile drive back home allowed me to get to know the car faster than usual. It must be said, I am very impressed. The 2.0 diesel engine has plenty of oomph!

    I used to have the SE+ in 2002 and the improvement is phenominal. Great specification including Sat Nav, 6 disc CD system, bluetooth handsfree phone setup. Slightly puzzling is the six, yep count 'em, six cupholders in the front, I don't think it matters how far I'm driving, I couldn't drink that much! One slight issue relates to the auto box. Although its a very smooth change,

    I did notice that 6th gear doesn't engage until 76mph. Not ideal on a 70mph speed limit. The simple way round is to knock the lever over to manual and shift into 6th, helps with the fuel economy. I bought this vehicle as I have bought a caravan and will be towing this year. I'm hoping that the auto box combined with the cruise will be a great combination.

    I will update this review during the course of the year to include the towing feedback.
