2001 Nissan X-Trail Sport 2.0 litre petrol
An absolute disaster and money pit, with appalling dealer customer service
Suddenly burning massive amounts of oil, with billows of smoke from the exhaust, just 800 miles after purchase.
Rear cat replaced at 59800 miles.
Both lambda sensors replaced at 59800.
Reconditioned engine bottom end fitted at 59800.
Front cat replaced at 59800.
RH rear wheel bearing now failed at 66000.
RH rear ABS sensor failed at 66000.
Self selected 4wd at 66000.
Bought from a dealer with a full service history.
However, as out of warranty, no consideration for all the faults!!
Repairs have cost more than the car car cost.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Here in sunny Japan you get into the last owner mentality. A 10-12 year-old X-Trail is so cheap at auction that you can afford to scrap and replace it when the 100,000 km service falls due. Run it over until the next Shaken and then it's heading for the great carpark in the sky where scrapping is free.
