Nissan Frontier/Xterra Automotive Repair Manual

About the Nissan X-trail

The Nissan X-Trail is a compact crossover SUV produced by the Japanese automaker Nissan since 2001. It was one of Nissan's very first crossover SUVs and was released about the exact same time as several other companies competing car-based lightweight SUVs including the Suzuki Grand Vitara, Ford Escape and its Mazda Tribute sibling, the Hyundai Tucson, Honda CR-V and the Toyota RAV4. The X-Trail is positioned below the truck-based Pathfinder and Xterra and was never offered by dealerships in the United States. The first generation was available in Canada until it was replaced by the Rogue. Nevertheless, both the the X-Trail and Rogue are sold in Mexico. The Rogue shares the same platform as the second-generation X-Trail and is very similar to the Qashqai. The X-Trail's All-Mode 4x4 transmission transfer case enables the motorist to select between 2WD, 4WD or 4WD Lock through an electronic switch on the dashboard. The company currently offers a hydrogen fuel cell model named the X-Trail FCV on lease to businesses.

The main production plant of the X-Trail is in Kanda, Fukuoka, Japan; though parts and engines that are produced in Japan are also assembled by other Nissan plants in numerous countries.Available only in the Japanese market is the SR20VET that produces 206 kW (280 hp) and is used in the X-Trail GT. The Australian model is powered by a QR25DE 2.5 L 4-cylinder engine initially producing 132 kW (177 hp). From January 2006, the Australian-spec engine was detuned to 123 kW (169 hp). Also offered is the QR20DE 4-cylinder engine, creating 103 kW (140 hp) or 110 kW (150 hp) with manual or automatic transmission. The biggest selling engine in the United Kingdom is the YD22DDTi, a 2.2 litre turbo-charged common-rail diesel. The X-Trail has had three model revisions, the Series 1 and Series 2 (using Nissan FF-S platform) and the Series 3 (using Nissan/Renault C platform). There were different cosmetic and engineering changes made between series 1 and 2 but the series 3 is all new despite a similar appearance with new engines apart from the 2.5L which has been retained.

The first-generation X-Trail uses the Nissan FF-S platform, shared with the Nissan Almera and the Nissan Primera. The X-Trail had been sold in Canada for the 2005 and 2006 model years (but Nissan Canada continued to promote the X-Trail until 2007), and in Mexico since 2003. The X-Trail has been sold in the Philippines since mid-2003, and received facelifts in very early 2005 and May 2007. In the United Kingdom the first-generation automobile had been available in S, Sport and SE+ between launch and 2004. The trim levels were then revised to SE, Sport, SVE and T-Spec. At this point all models were equipped with full electric windows, electricity adjustable door mirrors (on SVE & T-Spec they were electrically folding also), environment control, single car cd player, 4 airbags and remote central locking. The trim levels were once again revised in 2006. Nissan is still selling the Nissan X-Trail T30 model in some countries, where it is called the Nissan X-Trail Classic. In 2007 the Yulon manufactured model version got a facelift.

The 2008 Nissan X-Trail gave its public debut at the 2007 Geneva Motor Show in March, and went on sale in Europe in the third quarter of that year.Slightly bigger than the previous model, it is based on the Nissan C platform. This X-Trail appeared in Europe in the very first component of the 2007 and towards the end of the year in Australia and Mexico, but not in the United States and Canada where it was replaced by the Rogue. A facelifted model appeared in August 2010.
