Owned my '05 Xtrail since new. Just passed 250,000 kms last week.
Just replaced the tires (4th set) and rear struts.
Other items - O2 sensor, cam sensor, crank sensor, iridium plugs (190k), fluid changes (tranny/coolant), front tie rods and rotors (3rd set)
Routine maintenance - oil change (every 6k) and brake pads (ceramic with a lifetime warranty - change as needed).
No bearing issues (knock on wood!)
Same issue as Oreo with the upper catalytic convertor. Started in the spring. Ok for now, may have to look at in the future. Passed the Drive Clean test in Ontario in August with flying colours even with this issue. SES light on dash is only a minor annoyance.
Another 2 to 3 years, then maybe a Murano or Pathfinder?
My 06 dCi is reaching to 160,000 km by the end of this year. Everything working beautifully and can't complain.
A few month back i changed the bushing set in the front end, replaced both front bearings.
Just gave it to the mechanic last week for a general checkup and absolutely nothing came up, couldn't be happier.

I purchased min a while back almost new 4K (Miles) on the clock, some guy bought it for his mrs, had the extra's put on, Body kit, sat nav, did a few hundred miles then she complained it was to big and part chopped it for a toyota corolla. I took my mrs looking for a new yaris, bought the yaris, I saw the XT 2003 (53) 2.2td SVE with 4K and bought that as well and I have love it ever since, its got 42,500 miles on the clock and hasn't missed a beat, I've had a few jobs done BUT nothing major,
When I first bought it it was one of the last 114 bhp's, I had it re-mapped which pushed it up to 140bhp. in April next year it will be 2 years we started caravaning and I bought a senator virginia its a big van pulling on the flat was ok but on the long inclines I had to go down the box, So 12 months last october I had the turbo hybrided and pushed the power up to 175 bhp and now I dont even know the van is on the back. she is a beaut. I have looked at new ones BUT why spend money on what I'm already happy with
