fortuner should be comapred to Xttera...... do they still make Xtrail?

Nissan Xttera is good...

fortuner is better than xtrail, for sure!

By clareth• 5 years 1 month ago.

tnx baldrick2dogs and formatted, i did the comparisson for the two based on it's price,since the agents offered us a huge discount for xtrail,2011 model is 86,000 from the original price of 96thou and the fortuner is 98thou,but can be discounted with 7thou so it's 91thou.

i cannot afford the xterra,lol! any idea with fortuners performance?tnx!

86 to 91....just diff of 5K, I think go for fortuner,

with 2.7L engine it gives 'enough' power to this huge spacious car

I suggest forget the xtrail or the Fortuner.Go for the Pathfinder instead.A good car.The Xterra isn't so bad as well.

By happygolucky• 5 years 1 month ago.

clareth... check it out at Nissan showroom on salwa road.. I was there this saturday and thats what I was told...

Go for Toyota Fortuner but make sure you get the 6 Cylinder 4.0 ltr engine :)

For sure you will not regret it compare to Nissan X-Trail.

I m also planning to go for Fortuner, can you please let me know the details of agent,who is offering fortuner for 91thou. this seems to be a good price. And what is model.


By clareth• 5 years 1 month ago.

thank you so much everyone!your comments really helped us lot! @rabdulahed-that discount is a company discount,for an ordinary client they give 3thou discount.

As a rule if I want to buy a car I always look in the internet for reviews, specially from consumers. There you will find a lot of helpful informations.

I had an x trail before and had an expensive engine repair, its a fact that they have some design flaw in their engine. Fortuner in the other hand is based on a pick up truck, so don't expect a comfortable ride, besides its prone to rollover.

Maybe you can consider a honda crv, its not perfect but much better.

Note: previously owned a toyota and nissan before presently happy with honda now.

Using Fortuner for the last 3 years with no problems whatsoever. Used Scorpio earlier & managed to get rid of.

Used Mercedes & Land cruiser also earlier & looking forward to go for 4wd BMW now.

Fortuner is made in Thailand or Indonesia and X-Trail is made in Japan. However, the Fortuner is a bigger car.

I would take any Nissan over any Toyota any day. I hate Toyotas. They do cost cutting in places you don't even want to imagine.
