I'm about to do some fleet purchasing for our company and I showed them and they liked the BA Ute - so we'll def. be getting a BA Ute (just XT, but hey, 182kw will do
and probably a Ford Van.
Now, the guy we dealt with at Jarvis Ford on North East Road in Adelaide was very good (And VERY enthusiastic about the new models, I think he was loving it that finally he didn't have to work hard for the sales, they were just walking out the door.)
But my mum is also looking at getting a new car - she currently has a Prado and wants a smaller 4WD.
So I says, "No worries mum, lets get have a look at the escape." She looks at it, like it a lot, looks in the cabin.
It's a ****ing column shift? Whats that all about? She hates them (wont buy a Honda CRV because of them) and so now she wont be getting the Escape. If it had a normal auto-shift on the floor she would more than likely by it.
So we went at looked at a top spec Nissan X-Trail - very cool car, will probably end up with it.
Anyone got one and can give me some feedback on it?
The other contendor was a Sooby Forrestor, but its a 1450kg car with 112kw - the new GT model will not be available until mid next year.
Now, to me, 112kw in a car that heavy that will also be used for carrying stuff is **** all, if the GT was available (again) she would probably get one.
So, does anyone have a current spec Forrestor, and what are they like? I'll probably test drive one next week, but I just get the feeling its going to be gutless - even my mum thinks that a little too much power is better than a little too less.
So yea, if anyone with either an X-Trail or a Forrestor can give me some feedback, please do.
