Kind of people that drive them?

They a bit heavy on gas, parts not a problem, pretty durable suv

Really like these xtrails. It can do some basic offroading. Good ground clearance. The engine is notorious for overheating tho.

Mostly girls and old retired people drive them.

considering buying one fused or a local xtrail classic... leaning on this because I'm upgrading from a car with a qr20 engine (p12 primera)... shouldnt the overheating issue (never had any with my car but i know is prevalent with the qr20) and gas consumption be less?... are these MR20 engines interchangeable with the ones in the slyphy and serena?

The Police have the T30. Any vehicle that last 2 years in Police hands is a good vehicle ( technically it is 6 years, as a Police vehicle run for 3 shifts a day......24hrs).
The T31 carries the MR20 which is in the Serena and Bluebird Sylphy. While many taxi drivers have installed a transmission cooler in the Serenas, I do not think that there will be need for that in the T31.
I have imported a few, and I like them. They carry the X-tronic (Extroid) CVT which has been pretty sturdy. The fuel mileage, despite what one contributor earlier said, is quite good, especially on the 2WD model. Though the Nissan NS2 CVT oil is expensive, about $475 a gallon, it is easy to change on the T-31.

The engine room is not cluttered, and the do-it-yourselfer can do quite a lot for himself.

Personally I like the look of the T31, unlike the new T32 which is starting to resemble the Korean SUVs. I dislike rounded-bottom vehicles, CRV included. The RAV 4 can still pass.

Go for it.
Peace. RR.

The 2.5 will be extremely costly.
45% Customs Duty plus 15% VAT. $54,000 Motor vehicle Tax.

The 2.0 is cheaper.
35% Customs Duty plus 15% VAT. $25,875 Motor vehicle Tax.

2.0 feels a bit weak though. If you can go for the 2.5 you won't regret it.

Money is mainly the reason why, (to exaggerate a little) some of us drive Jimnys, and some drive Range Rovers.

If a 2009 T31 2,000cc cost US$11,000 to ship to Trinidad, the cost is as follows:
C.I.F price US$ 11,000.............................................TT$ 70,950.
35% Customs Duty..................................................TT$ 24,833
15% VAT.................................................................TT$ 14,367
Motor Vehicle Tax.....................................................TT$ 25,875
Small charges..........................................................TT$ 3,600
Grand total without Dealer markup............................TT$ 139,625.


The same 2009 T31 with a 2500cc engine at the same US$11,000 price to ship to Trinidad:
C.I.F price US$11,000...............................................TT$ 70,950
45% Customs Duty...................................................TT$ 31,928
15% VAT..................................................................TT$ 15,431
Motor Vehicle Tax......................................................TT$ 54,000
Small Charges..........................................................TT$ 3,600
Grand Total without Dealer markup............................TT$ 175,909

We have a price difference of TT$36,284. If the 2500cc model should cost more from Japan, then the price difference obviously, will be greater.
Your insurance will be more.
Your gas consumption will be more.
Parts would be more readily available for the MR20.

Yes, one would agree that the driving experience will be different.

............the main reason why some drive Jimnys, and some drive Range Rovers.

Peace.
RR.

What about the ride quality/comfort on the NT31 (4WD model)? I don't expect it to be like a Teana, but would it be as harsh as a pickup?

Really good ride. Not as cushy as the cefiero but I don't really notice little bumps in it and this is the one with standard 18s. I will say that stock tyres are really noisy, Dunlop sp7000 iirc.
