11 years of X-trail ownership,started with a silver 04 plate 2.0 petrol se.6 years we owned this.
Then a 2010 thundercloud 2.0dci aventura,5 years we owned this till today.
I now have a 2014(64) N-tec 1.6dci in black,first impressions are smooth,very quiet,***** complicated with lots of toys.But i feel the steering is a little to light.
In the morning i will sit on the drive,press some buttons and see what happens.

So why change?
My T31 developed some problems,the turbo oil seals leaking.A new turbo needed was the diagnoses.Also new rear brake backing plates and hand brake cables(dealer only),also a ball joint.
A bill of around £2000+ on a £6000 car.
A very good px price saw my 3rd x-trail arrive on the drive.We looked at a Mitsi outlander phev this interested me but the white one i looked at,looked like a fridge freezer.Next we looked at a Range Rover evoque,over rated,expensive and to small.A Discovery sport far far to expensive and over rated.A BMW X5 very nice powerfull but 23mpg Mrs R drove it and she could only get 23mpg as well,no good to me. I didn't fancy any thing from Kia or Honda/Toyota so that brought me back to the X-trail,i didn't want or need a 7 seat and i wanted black,i would of liked a Tekna but none around.So a n-tec 5 seat in black was found.

Hmmmmm.... For what I know, the our is 50 - 60 €. Without VAT... So, you can imagine the bill is always (too) high. Talking about Netherlands. Think UK is the same...

I reckon it's at least £80-90 inc VAT in the UK for main dealers, probably a lot more for some brands.
My recent 'major' service (incl brake fluid change, supposedly) from Nissan was £269 which showed a £170 labour charge inc VAT, which at most should equate to 2 hours work - in reality more like 1.5 hours so then your're actually paying more than £110 an hour...
I know the invoice is thrown together to reach the fixed price but it's a guide.
Seeing as the technician is probably paid about £15/hour, that's a fair overhead for the privilege of having it done in a nice shiny workshop! All to get a main stealer stamp in the book eh...

Here in dealers 50-65€/h with VAT

Private shops 30-40€/h.

Bigger jobs like HG, engine swap/rebuild or gearbox are usually in agreement price or afterwok sidejobs/unoffically . But the shop still must take responcebillity for the job. Small city/country and the word gets loose, when somebody is trying to rip off.

Ok time to try again..

So after a week and 360 miles how do i feel about my T32?

I like it,not as ruffty tuffty as the t31 but very smooth.

I like a lot of us was concerned about going from a 2.0 170bhp to a 1.6 130bhp,but there is no noticeable differance,the engine revs smoothly through the rev range the turbo comes on around 1800rpm.It is also quieter.

As for mpg the worst is 39mpg the best 59.9mpg.

The seats are very comfortable there isn't as much adjustment as the electric seats in the t31 but still good.The kids love the stadium seating in the back.It would be alot better if the rear seats folded flat with the seat base folding forward.

As for the toys,so many,most not needed but nice to have i suppose,a lot take your eye off the road.
The electric handbrake takes some getting use to Mrs R does not like it.Our drive is on a slope,the first time i reversed off it i was unsure as what to do.2 seconds from brake pedel to accelarator and find the biting point. I now know that i can press the brake pedel and drive away,but i still like a lever.

The boot is a different shape with different levels but i liked the draw to keep all the bits and pieces in.
This is the first and last black i have owned,the paint seems very soft.

So,yes i like it. It has moved on. Roll on the snow,the T31 was good in the snow but not as good as the T30.
What i dont like..The electric hand brake and the soft paint.

Interesting read this thread. :thumbs:

Mrs Rappy really likes the T32's. I'm still undecided. The T30 is still behaving & I think we will be looking at the T32's but I have asked that we wait till there is a 2.0 option.

I may even go & take a closer look at one now. I agree about black cars.

All the best,

Rappy :cool:

OK back again.

Thanks rappy.
Toys,toys and more toys
Anyhoo back to the car,it has an electric power rear door this is niffty and made of plastic it beeps when opening and closing.
Also comes with parking sensors all round and 360o cameras so i can view what is coming around a blind corner.

It also has traffic sign recognition,this comes up on the info screen on the dash between the rev counter and speedo, what the speed limit is on the area of road you are on,handy when limits change often on a strech of road.

The satnav also comes up on the info screen.It has am radio,fm radio,dab radio a cd player and aux points.
Tyre preasure monitors,lane departure,autonomous braking however that works. A speed limiter.
It has some 4x4 gauge that i think tells how much power is going were,and when.
There is a lot more toys and buttons i will come back with more musings later.

Hi mark-r
The autonomous braking may sound a bit nanny-state-ish but I was caught out once with person in front slamming on brakes for no reason after entering roundabout and it kicked in as I was checking for traffic coming round. I had been thinking it was all a bit much with its toys but was very pleased to have them that day.
Not filling me with confidence on the black paint point, have just confirmed order with local dealer for 2nd T32 taking up £5500 off offer, only colours available before deadline for n-tec were black or white, and I've gone with black.
Kev
