Yes, Canadian X-Trail. Good to know about the OEM bars. I'll start looking.

meisanerd I'm half looking at one for a second vehicle, haven't quite needed one enough yet to justify buying, though.

My mechanic buddy that used to work at Nissan says that they were one of the better vehicles of that class due to the way they distributed power in their AWD system, makes them super good in the snow, and loads of fun to drive. Also, you can get them with a manual tranny...

General_Tarfun I've seen the X-Trail a lot in South America, it's not too bad looking they're kinda like the middleground between a real body/frame SUV and a crossover.

Lakebeard The X-Trail was available here in Canada for just the 2005 and 2006 model years, and as has been mentioned dealers in the US never carried them. I drove a 2005 for about 7 years between my '99 Pathfinder and last November when I picked up my Xterra.

Interesting that a user claiming to be from the US has access to an X-Trail. Did your girlfriend come from Canada or Mexico?
If I'm not mistaken at one point you could actually buy both/either or in Mexico
