Hello all, we have just bought an 05 plate X Trail, 2.2 dci, SVE with 32k on the clock. It is her first diesel (petrol RAV4 before). Only done a couple of hundred miles so far, but observations so far by the missus are:
**** handbrake.......
Noisy when starting from cold........ (I have had diesels for years so am used to this)
Apart from that she seems to love it.
Anything I need to look out for???
Cheers
Colin

Hi and welcome.

Noise is common from xt's esp from cold.
Have to watch oil from intercooler mainly, seems to spray under the cooler onto pipes - see forum links.

other than that have fun..

Cheers, thanks for the tips. Adjusted the handbrake today at the drums following some tips on here, its a doddle, and took up a little slack at the lever, its OK now.
I have a few gallons of Motrex 15W/40 engine oil, would you recomend it for this car?
As its new to us, I want to do an oil & filter change soon. I normally use Euro car parts for bits and pieces, including oil filters, they OK for these cars?
Thanks
Colin
