I purchased an Xtrail Diesel 6 speed auto last november for my wife.
After driving it a few times with her I noticed that for the auto box to shift into 6th I need to be doing 77mph.
Now the national speed limit in the UK is 70.
I have also noticed that whilst driving her car I can change the gears a lot earlier into the next higher gear with no struggle from the engine.
It is as if the vehicle has an overdrive option. (but it doesn't)
Driving along our local A road at 60-70 the car just sits in 5th gear, where as I can manually change it to 6th at 50.

Upon a recent service I brought this problem up with the service manager who said that many xtrail drivers have noticed this but Nissan are not prepared to do anything about it.

If you are experiencing the same problem please let me know your contact details and also send in a letter of complaint to UK head office. As they ought to offer a remedy for this in the Uk otherwise is false advertisment and not fit for the UK market.
