So, I have observed a couple guys on here who have let their X-Trails go, and moved on to other brands. A friend of mine who used to work at a Nissan dealer, and who owns a later model Pathfinder, advised against anything Nissan, suggesting either a Honda CR-V or a Toyota RAV4. Budget, as usual, is a factor with us, and vehicles do cost a bit more here in Alberta. We will be selling hubby's truck to get the funds needed to get a small SUV to replace the Little Silver Bus, which is now over 435K. I had a 1999 RAV4 before I got this, and am looking at the early 2000s when the body style changed. Also, a Honda CR-V would be good, too. The only Nissan I would consider is another X-Trail as we know what they are like, and ASFAIK are the best of the small Nissan SUVs. Too bad Quad lives in La Belle Province or I would have loved to buy his! What do you guys think??
