2005 Nissan X-Trail Elegance 2.2 dCi


Not perfect, but a very good SUV


Intercooler broke on 50.000 km (fixed under warranty).

Turbo broke on 52.000 km (fixed under warranty).

General Comments:

The doors refuse to shut in very cold weather, especially when there's a rapid difference in temperatures from warm to cold..

Very good 4x4-capabilities due to instant 4x4 instead of "real-time"-systems. I use it often to tow boats from the beach with sand and high attack-angles, but smells like burned clutch...

Good comfort & powerful engine.

Navigation screen very sensitive to cleaning fluids - screen was totally screwed up after using window cleaning fluids, but replaced under warranty.

Excellent service from my Norwegian dealer.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
