NISSAN X-TRAIL Used Car Review

The X-Trail has established itself as one of the most popular Nissan models since its 2001 introduction. It continues to share its platform and other components with its Qashqai/Dualis stablemate, as well as the Renault Koleos SUV as part of the giant Renault-Nissan alliance. The Nissan X-Trail featured a boxy, trad-4WD look for its first two generations before the latest model adopted curvier lines in acknowledgement of its primary role as urban transport.

Pros

Cons

  • Third-row option added for current generation (2014 on)
  • Flexible interior thanks to sliding second-row seats
  • More powerful 2.0L turbo diesel replaced 1.6L in 2017 update
  • Good fuel efficiency from both petrol and diesel engines
  • AWD variants not available with seven seats
  • Current generation dropped clever reversible cargo floor plus drawers
  • Six-monthly service intervals for pre-updated model
  • Foot-operated park brake

  • Common FAQs
  • You can find a 2001 AWD model on Gumtree for only $2,950 or at the other end of the price spectrum pick up a 2019 T32 2WD for $39,989. If somewhere in the middle is your bracket, consider the Hyundai Tuscan.
  • One benefit the X Trail offers is versatility, with five-seat and seven-seat options to choose from. This sets it apart from several competitors in its class with only late models of the Honda CR-V boasting this seating capacity.
  • Of the three engines in the range the most fuel-efficient is the 2.5- litre 4-cylinder, sipping between 7.9 to 8.3 L/100km. If fuel is your key factor, the Mazda CX-5 claims slightly better efficiency, boasting figures of 6.9L/100km.
  • Nissan offers both 2WD and 4WD powertrains for the X Trail, plus a range of model options and accessories. The most recent models are packed with features including keyless entry, cruise control, Bluetooth with connectivity through NissanConnect and a reversing camera.
  • The Nissan X Trail is an enduringly popular SUV in the Australian market, based on its value for money, reliability, comfort levels and practicality. In many respects, it's worth comparing to the consistently successful Toyota RAV4.

Servicing

SIMILAR MODELS TO NISSAN X-TRAIL

WHAT TO LOOK OUT FOR: NISSAN X-TRAIL (2007 to 2013)

Because these were big inside compared with the competition, many X-Trails were used by pet owners and mountain bikers. Combine that with the hard-plastic interior trim that was easily scratched and an X-Trail can quickly look pretty shabby inside.

If the steering wheel or column starts making a noise, pull over and stop the car. There was a recall for a bolt that connected the steering system, which could come loose and finally jump ship altogether and, if that happened, the vehicle suddenly lost its steering.

The diesel X-Trail is, like many others of its sort, prone to blocking up of its soot filter if the vehicle has been used for short, urban journeys. Nissan developed a new program for the computer that altered the way the EGR valve works, reducing this problem, but it's still something to investigate in a second-hand example.

Many dealers uploaded this new software during routine servicing and the owner never even knew about it. But it's worth having the upgrade done as it also liberates a bit more power.
