Hello Paul, what is the biggest problem with Nissan Xtrail cars? Would you recommend it? Mwesiga

Hello Mwesiga, often, the biggest problem with Nissan Xtrails are users and the choice of fuels and lubes. The failure to carry out periodical (100,000 km) service of the fuel filter leads to damage of the sensitive fuel pump or fuel injectors.
Also, failure to service the engine with quality engine oil and fluids on time exposes the valve train to premature failure.
Cutting corners cause costly engine breakdowns. Opting for cheap counterfeit oil filters, not using recommended engine oil, avoiding to replace the fuel filter and air cleaner on time causes performance challenges and breakdown.
