Excellent all round vehicle which i have been delighted with. A lot of space for large dogs, shopping etc. but not a heavy vehicle to handle as regards parking etc.and for everyday journeys, if there had been an automatic diesel engine when buying i would have had one so would consider that next time.

After 25000 miles in 18 months ,we have absolutely no doubts that our choice was correct. During the current winter conditions we did a number of long journeys ,without any worries about getting to our destination. Our only concern regards the particulate filter,this seems to be a problem {not encountered by us} on short journeys.

Very comfortable, reasonably economical. The niggle is the heating system. During cold weather it takes 6/7 miles to warm the interior. The electric heated seats are an essential.

Very good, comfortable, performs well , good in slippery conditions and handles reasonably for a 4x4. Let down only by 3 visits to the dealer regarding turbo intercooler pipe splitting, acknowledeged as a weakness apparently but not strengthend, salesperson even said i can get a better part non standard but paid for by me !!

Brilliant, spacious and practical. Although it's a 4x4 it handles almost as well as my previous car, a focus. I use it for towing a caravan and it's ideal. It will never win a beauty competition though as it has all the attractivness of a brieze block.

My wife and I bought our x trail t31 about 5 years ago. The car was bought for a mixed usage, towing, etc , it even pulls our chain harrows around at our stables. Its good on fuel, reasonably quiet, well appointed and has been very reliable until one day I went to start it using the keyless ignition. The engine started to turn then the battery ran down, what happened next is unbelievable. It would not jump start, so the battery was removed and charged, still no starting on keyless ignition. To cut a long story short the car will only start using the key. The car has been to the agents, so far it's looking like it needs a 'BCM' module (over £500) also its possible it needs another module at over £600 plus fitting and programming. The X-Trail t31 is a very good car, but my advice is change your battery sooner rather than later. Any hints your battery on the way out don't try to start it. A man I know near me did the same and it destroyed the ECU (over £1,500 to fix). To sum up, good car but keep an eye on that battery.

In the main my vehicle is used as a tow car. Towing weight it approximately 1500 kg. Tmrw is approximately 3000 kg. This is usually in europe any where from norway to portugal, belgium to croatia and all countries in between. In looks, style, cabin comfort is super, inside rear carrying capacity is fantastic, fuel economy it is fantastic. Having owned a number of 4x4 in the past twenty years i have found this the best. Down side :- it could do with a low range gears while being used in 4x4 drive mode. This could be an option at first, to see what the purchase response was.

It has lived up to my expectations easy to drive both on and off road. Niggles the secondary contolls are not as easy to use as previous cars. Computer clock not easy to read at night. Headlights do not return to dip when ignition is switched off combined with automatic lights means that lights can come on at main beam.

Pros: Looks nice, like proper suv car (comparing to the other suvs looking like inflated compacts on bigger wheels). Very comfortable but inside seems to be old school rather than one of those twenty-first century cars. But everything is within reach of a driver. Driving is easy. Good, reliable car. Cons: Although my x-trail is sport version it has to be revved high to force it to get a speed, otherwise is sluggish. And it's very thirsty.

I need 4x4 capability, but also doing high road mileage. This car has been an exellent compromise. Never been bogged where i couldn't get free with diff-lock, and long-distance comfort is excellent. Franchised servicing has been very reasonable.

35 mpg when driven hard compares favourably with the last car (2.2 c crosser) which managed 29mpg driven in a similar manner - insurance is cheaper too despite the car being worth a lot more
