2005 Nissan X-Trail SVE 2.2 turbo diesel from UK and Ireland
Love my X-Trail, but concerned about future turbo reliability
Turbo has failed at 22500 miles.
Inter-cooler leaks oil.
Love the comfort and driving position.
The only vehicle I have owned that will negotiate my sloping driveway in the snow.
Concerned that the turbo and inter-cooler failures seem to be a well reported common fault. What happens after the warranty period has expired?
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I have exactly the same issue with my X-Trail. After 16,500 miles the turbo developed a whistle. Replaced.
Another 16K miles and the replacement develops the same fault. This is replaced.
I have terrible burning smell which the dealer has failed to prevent. Suspect this is the same intercooler leak - so will try getting a different dealer to look at this.
Apart from that love the car.
