Hi all,

had a chance to upgrade to my dream car and made it happen - X-TRAIL Tekna dci 173BHP the very last before the remodel. Got an excellent trade in from my local dealer. So happy to make the switch.

My observations from a soon too be ex-Dacia owner:

PROS

10 months of trouble-free motoring and 14k miles

Go anywhere car

Cheap to run

CONS

Seats are dreadful - uncomfortable on log journeys.

Gear ration on 4x4 is annoying. Gutless engine

carpets would have been better with carpet tiles than stock thin horrible carpets

too much plastic

Doors slams don't inspire great solid build

noisy engine even on the revamped 2014 UK spec - foam does not do much

it needs a 7th gear - you do 70MPH and you feel like you are doing 100MPH

It's been fun though and carried all my music gear with ease and bags of space to spare!

Hopes your experience with the X-Trail is at least as good :)
