    My car

    I got this car delivered on 1st March 2008. I have yet to find and use most of the accessories that come as standard, but overall it seems very well equipped.

    The heated leather seats are great at this time of year. The sat-nav works well and seems as good as my previous one on the BMW I had.

    The rear-view camera works well when reversing close to other objects or cars. I'm a little disappointed that it didn't come with an iPod plug, as many new cars have this facility now.

    The new 173bhp diesel seems to perform well and pulls very strongly, although I have to yet get more than 33mpg either on motorways or in urban driving.

    All in all, I'm very happy and think I made the right choice when comparing it to the new Freelander, which was another £5000 for a similar specification.

    My car

    We just picked up our new X trail yesterday, and i can honestly say wow, its every bit as good as we hoped and better. Our previous car was the old x trail and we was very happy with it, but the new one is much better, more refined, spacious, much quieter, quicker and over all a very nice and classy grown up x trail, Highly recomended.

    My car

    I had the MK2 2.2 SVE. After 4 turbos and 1 intercooler, I said I will never buy another Nissan! (I've had 3 new over time and all have been good).

    I drove the new X 2.0 Sport 171 - it was great, more comfy, better gearchange, better road manners, good ride, with camera park assist. I like it so I ordered a new soort. Will let you know how i get on.

    My car

    I've owned this car now for just over a week and am very impressed with what I've seen so far. Having just had a 2yr old Audi A6 I expected the Nissan to be a sizeable step down in quality but that's far from the case. OK so the materials aren't quite up to Audi's standard but it's very well screwed together and has a comprehensive list of equipment as standard.

    The satnav is excellent as too is the built-in Bluetooth carphone.

    The engine is responsive and quiet for a diesel the ride is significantly better than the Audi, body roll is limited too for such a tall vehicle. The gearchange is smooth and initial MPG over the 1st 1000 miles is in the mid 30's which I expect to rise as the engine loosens up.

    The boot is vast and the clever underfloor storage is a real bonus. Headroom front and rear is fine contrary to some reports, rear legroom is adequate. The centre rear headrest is full height despite what the guy said in one of the previous reviews.

    Overall I'm delighted with my purchase so far and would recommend to anyone as a practicle and comfortable family car.
