    When did xtrail became luxury

    Nowadays cost of service is so high, hardly any one get their vehicle serviced.

    any vehicle is a luxury here..

    First this is not a Luxury VehicleAll owners of this make and model should contact the Local Agent for this brand and get a clarification for the cause as there has been so many recalls by all manufactures

    Luxury vehicles, luxury houses, they all fall down these days. Yes, agree with some of the readers. These used vehicles are not road worthy!

    SHUT T UP FOOL

    Truth Friday, 15 August 2014 11:20 AM

    Agree with Kan.. Could be not servicing and changing oil or not getting maintenance done due to unimaginable high costs could be a reason for this

    hrm Friday, 15 August 2014 11:57 AM

    This might be a short circuit. It's hard to believe that some one could buy a brand new X trail but couldn't do servicing due to costs.

    SSK Friday, 15 August 2014 12:26 PM

    I will not call it a luxury vehicle. Looks like a Nissan X-Trail.

    George Friday, 15 August 2014 05:58 PM

    Definitely its an electrical short not using a proper fuse. Using a kambi they think it does the job.. via DM Android App

    The cause of importing cheap used vehicles without proper inspection and road worthiness.

    michael Friday, 15 August 2014 01:38 PM

    That was a Nissan X-Trail with the front fully burnt. It was a K?-series Car
