posticon Moving on


We've had our Xtrail 2 years and last weekend we traded it in on a Hilux dualcab; we had loads of fun in our Xtrail and it took us places we'd never have gone otherwise; this is why we traded it; we want to go further, so we did some research and lots of test drives and the Hilux fitted our needs; sad to see the Xtrail go but life goes on.

As a last recommendation I bought a Waeco 8 litre Cooly fridge which is ideal for weekends away it carries a couple of cartons of milk and the butter etc, it sits in the middle of the rear seat under the centre strap and plugs in the ciggy lighter, I use it all the time for work and its ideal for short breaks without breaking the bank, $80 from supercheap auto, buy one they're ideal.

Best of luck with your xtrails get out there and explore they will go further than you realise and do a training course, we did and we haven't looked back

Hi Bob,

We're sad to see you go but happy to see that you found what would best match your needs.

Good luck mate and keep in touch, all our EX-trailers are still part of this little community.

How much did you get for your trade-in? just curious, as I know yours was a Ti.

Re: Moving on


We were initially offered $22500 as a trade in, we laughed at him, eventually got $27000 and a 12 month warranty which they don't have to provide on a commercial vehicle, this was at a dealer in Parramatta.
We didn't take this offer, we didn't like the guys attitude.

The car we did buy was from a 4x4 dealer in Richmond who we felt was honest and fair and presented his vehicles in excellent condition and knew his vehicles, we did a straight swop and are completely happy with the deal we got.

Trading cars is a mine field of morons who try playing all sort of mind games with you, you need to do your home work know what your trade in is worth and exactly what you are looking for, stick to this rigidly and walk away if you have any doubts or reservations; there are literaly 1000s of vehicles out there to choose from.

Nice choice
I know the diesel has an absolutle outstanding low range. A tip, I have from a friend with one (if you are taking it in mud ect) is to fit diff breather extensions, beacuse the standard one apparently is just a little one on (about a grease nipple size)

Thats what he said anyway

Good Luck to bvoth of you emoticon

Re: Moving on


Thanks for the tip Pete; we bought a diesel the 3 litre without the turbo, it's not so quick away from the lights but once rolling it's very torquey, I wanted a simple vehicle mechanicaly so I can service it myself (I have some mechanical background), it's also proving to be quite economical; after two tanks I'm averaging 10lt/100kms which is what the Xtrail used to do.

Bob.
