    It comes with a cigarette lighter – that’s all you could ask for.

    No mention of safety, or lack thereof given its very average frontal offset crash score. Good car otherwise considering its age, but given virtually all it’s competition is 5 stars… NEXT!

    I have had the diesel manual TL spec for over four years and its a tireless gutsy vehicle.  However had a ride in a Kia Sportage Platinum today and just wish Kia would offer this vehivle in 4WD manual.  The interior, drivetrain and handling of the Kia though smaller, walks all over the Xtrail.

  • bad news

    Yes time for a new model looks tired and ugly now

    • The Real Wile E

      Yes is going to be called N Trail

    • Zaccy16

      yeah agreed, it is way behind its rivals and has awful handling

      • Hung Low

        In what way is it behind? It rides and steers better than the IX35, has more cargo room than the Tiguan, CX5, Sportage, better off road than a Rav4 and most of the competitors, higher towing capacity than most. The styling is generic off roader and many do not mind that it sits outside the new styling mould for SUV’s.  The Xtrail ticks the boxes in most areas without excelling in any, it is still a decent no frills practical package and its sales figures represents this.

        • Zaccy16

          Most people do no off roading at all, it’s ugly, unrefined, slow, low quality
          And rubbish to drive, I do agree though that it is better than the horrible ix35

          • Karl Sass

            I think you’re missing the point of the car Zaccy. It’s supposed to be practical, with a bit more off road capacity then the competition. I don’t mind the way it looks. Sure, it’s not as sharp dynamically as some of the others, but it’s not low quality. Some people actually use their SUV’s off road but don’t need a Prado etc.

    Nissan briefly sold the X-Trail in Canada but it didn’t do well.

    • John

      Um, ok.

    • Canadian X

      I had a 2005 X-Trail SE in Blue in Canada, I, my wife, and my best friend loved it. Nissan Canada only sold it in Canada in 2005 and 2006. The dealer said it created too much competition for their X-terra. Nissan stills sells the X-Trail in Mexico, not Canada, but they don’t sell the X-terra in Mexico! Go figure!

  • Deeps

    Scared of X Traps parked on the sides of the roads behind bushes. Its the favourite vehicle of mobile speed camera operators. 

  • John

     What silly comments. Low quality ? How ridiculous. If it’s that bad you’ve probably not driven the ‘rubbish’ much. I’ve had one for 5 years and can see why it’s one of the popular vehicles of it’s type in Australia. It’s built for a purpose and accomplishes that. And always gets good reviews. Not supposed to be an F1 car.

  • Mthrmouse

    I have a 2006 X-trail with 240K kms on it, it has been inexpensive to maintain.  I wish they still sold them in Canada. Travel 100km each day. This is our nineth Nissan, is there any other products out there?

  • Kasslerchop

    I’m considering buying another X-Trail. I bought one many years ago when they were first released in Aus, I think around 2001 or 2002? I had nothing but problems with it, such as cracked engine mount and a cracked clutch pressure plate. One of the engine cyclinders went oval in shape and it went through an entire sump of oil doing a 400km road trip. This resulted in the engine requiring replacing. And I had a few other smaller issues. I’m in two minds in regards to buying another one, as much I like the practicality of the car, and it ticks most of my boxes, as the same time I’m once bitten twice shy. Since my experience with my first X-Trail, have Nissan improved the quality of the car?

  • Mfor

    The X Trail I owned for a year was the most expensive car I have bought and by far, the worst built. It had clunks, rattles and vibrations which Nissan claimed didn’t exist (under warranty ). The air bag system failed and all the wiring had to be replaced. The windscreen came loose. The CVT was erratic and slow to respond. The interior started separating at joins etc etc. Every time I took it in under warranty Nissan tried to avoid responsibility. Anyone who thinks this is a decent car has never driven a decent car.

    Hi Augustus the X Trail here, Um what can I say, I’m a 2010 manual diesel X Trail, and my owners love me, I was delivered by Ferntree Gully Nissan and they have been awesome. I go like a cut cat, and still deliver great economy.

    I just had a brake upgrade to DBA T2 4×4 rotors (Awesome) Munroe Shocks Great, (wish OME did some for me though).

    I have a Hi Tech Mufflers Cat Back exhaust, Brilliant, made 25% more torque on the dyno, sounds awesome to and yet not loud, this was bought through the online X Trail Shop as were my steel bashplates, I have ARB Intensity LED Flood lights, Spastic light! and I’ve just been fitted with a “Chip My Diesel” pro chip which un-tuned made an extra 25kw on the dyno, with more tuning to come. Put simply I fly and get 6.3L / hundred on most trips, no matter how I’m driven. I’m about to be traded on the last of the great X Trails a 2013 as my owners don’t like the new one, You can find me on the Australian X Trail Forum.

    I go Bracket Racing over the 1/8th mile and I’m very consistent, I love going off road, you’d be surprised where I’ve been, my first trip was to Cape York! I’ve crossed deserts and love getting Muddy! ;)

    Put simply I’m ultra reliable, heaps of fun to drive, (love the looks on sports car owners faces when I leave em at the lights, LOL) and a lot more capable off road than most serious 4x4s, if driven sensibly. I love balancing on two and three wheels, I’m good at it and surprise lots of other 4x4s at how agile I am, and yet so comfy to drive.

    Say G’ Day to ya car for me, and I’m off to Get Muddy ;)
