    My car

    This is an absolutely fantastic car. It is totally different from the last model (apart from the looks). All the the niggles with the old model have gone.

    The six-speed auto gearbox is a dream, it drives well and the build quality is excellent.

    I was not happy with my previous X-Trail but this is so much better. I cannot fault it any way. Well done, Nissan.

    My dealer is good too!

    My car

    i have driven the nissan x-trail aventura+ down as the aventura explorer i am really pleased with this car and i now own one i would never consider the honda crv because it is to ugly slow and plasticy i was at the traffic lights the other day and there was a honda 2.2 litre crd engine and he tried his best to keep up with me but failed and we were going down side roads and the x-trails handling and comfort kept me well ahead and i love the idea of having 2 modes comfort and sport mode the inside of the x-trail is very well built and hi tech as well as simple i like the idea of having a rear reversing camera so when you flick it into reverse a picture of whats behind you comes up on the screen i would also never choose the toyota rav4 partly because it is too small and slow in the interior it is bland and it is the same on the outside.

    My car

    Very nice car the New X-Trail. But it has one big flaw. And its a massive one. Try and get three people on the rear bench. The width is fine. But the head rest in the middle seat makes it impossible for any one over 5'4" to sit comfortably. The head restraint does not go high enough to be against the back of the head of any one taller. It therefore not safe and its extremely uncomfortable for any normal sized teenager or adult. Dont believe me? Just go try it for yourself. I find it amazing that such a family targeted car can be so flawed. So Nissan has just lost a sale.

    My car

    This is our second X-Trail and we have been very pleased with the car, at least until the turbo failed at 27000 and we found the main dealer to be defensive, unfriendly and not helpful in arranging a repair under warranty. We are doubtful if our next car will be an X-Trail as we are worried about the unrelability issues that are well catalogued in the Readers Reviews at What Car?. Perhaps a Honda CRV next?
