Was a little apprehensive about buying a car with 120000 miles on the clock. I have now had the motor 8 months and the mileage has climbed to 127000. Very economical car, never let me down and a great tow car for my 20' caravan. The car is 10 years old but the engine sounds like a new one! I have bought and sold nearly 40 cars in my driving life and never had one longer than 3 years but I love this motor and hope to have it many years!… Read Full Review

I bought the car privately last year with 83,000 miles on the clock. The test drive was very good but cut out when we finished the drive. I thought it was because of low fuel. Filled it up got home but cutout on tick over and bad starting. My son who is ex Nissan mechanic said it was the camshaft sensor as he had replaced a lot of these because of the same problem. Put new one in and it did not correct the problem, so went on line and saw the next thing was mega bucks to fix. So we decided to… Read Full Review

This is an honest dependable work horse, From new it has averaged around 40mpg under mixed driving. I have used it on road, off road ( tracks, rivers, across fields and through deep snow and hard packed ice) It has now got 146,000 miles (yes thats right) and according to the local Nissan agent the highest mileage they have seen. Problems have been limited to Accelerator pedal (fly by wire therefore very expensive part - I complained to Nissan about the… Read Full Review

I searched high and low for the perfect 4x4 for me, something that was economical, not too big, but could pull a small horse trailer and cope with my very bumpy track and muddy fields.
All was well until yesterday morning when I got in the car to find the oil light on. I immediately filled up and the light went off. However, the engine seemed very restricted, with no pull or drive up hills and through the changes of the gears.
I got a neighbour to look at it last night (mechanic and car… Read Full Review

We have had our 54 plate X trail only a few months and it seems to need something on a monthly basis: Air Conditioning Fault (apparently comon with 54 plates), intercooler has burst £533+vat + fitting, fuel and oil filters have been replaced only a couple of thousand miles after the last service and MOT and were completely choked, can;t blame the windscreen chip on the car. Fuel efficiency so far has been well below what reviews led us to believe and the black smoke coming out of the exhaust… Read Full Review

Bought this when I retired, since then it has had one intercooler, 4 turbos and 3 fuel boost sensors replaced. I currently have a problem with the battery discharing over night. It has never gone more than 6 months without a problem.
As I am retired I cannot afford to replace it, getting close to the point where I cannot afford to run it either.
I contacted Nissan to bring their attention to my plight, all they were interested in was whether or not I would buy another Nissan, after… Read Full Review

Mine's a 2007 Aventura. A very nice compact 4 wheel drive, being the Aventura it has all the kit like sat-nav, heated leather etc. all for a sensible price as well. Bought a petrol one as I strongly dislike the Renault Diesel engines, they have far too many major problems which makes them not worth buying especially once out of warranty - check on Google if you are unsure. The petrol gives really good economy if driven properly as well, which some people might find surprising. Good reliabilty… Read Full Review

The Cold Start Engine Clatter is Back again on Our Nissan X-Trail 2.2Di Sport but this time Nissan Have agreed that there is a problem and are going to replace 3 more injectors , That's the 3 that were not replaced last year...................SO IF YOU HAVE THE SAME CLATTER TAKE IT BACK AND INSIST ON NEW INJECTORS. I THINK WE ARE WINNING!!
Nissan will issue you with a Customer Service Bulletin, read it hand it back amd insist on new injectors.
i have it on good authority that Nissan know there… Read Full Review

My Nissan X-Trail is a 2004 2.2dci model. Engine was missing a beat and not allowing me to accelerate past 2500rpm earlier this year and after much messing about by local Nissan Dealer, they replaced the fuel filter and all was fine until this week. Problem has returned with vengeance so heading off once again to have another fuel filter fitted by a local mechanic.
I have done 25k miles since the last replacement in January, never let fuel run down, always fill up at Tesco and do mainly motorway… Read Full Review

The Nissan X-trail is a good car, on '05 plates, no problems. The interior could be better but hey. For those complaining about small whells, and low power. What do you expect from a small 4x4, ITS A DIESEL, not a Lambo!… Read Full Review

It has got tremendous power for its class. The mounted headlamps in the roof rails makes it cooler looking. Good four wheel drive system. Its a good suv for its money. I think that Nissan could have fitted it with a bigger wheel to make it more cool looking and produce a better engine that has 200hp but still is cheap… Read Full Review

I am a professional engineer (Chartered Mechanical) and have worked in Automive Component Supply for 20 years. Even with my 'insider knowledge' I was caught out by the Nissan X-Trail. The 2007 new X-Trail has even more BHP out of a smaller diesel engine - very worrying.....my personal recommendation is forget Nissan all together, they use too many Renault parts now and that means higher variation = lower reliability. By a Honda, Toyota, Kia or a Hyundai if you want peace of mind. If you want… Read Full Review

Mine is an early 2003 model, ie. the lower bhp version. However it is undoubtedly more reliable than the upgrade Nissan did in the second half of 2003 to the higher bhp model judging by what I have read. Now has 82,000 on clock and still goes very well. Always serviced at correct intervals. Have to be careful not to overfill with oil; it seems to have a very shallow sump and this possibly could cause smoky exhaust? But passes emission test OK. Seems very reliable so far. But after reading so… Read Full Review
