"New" wheels...

My trusty old 1985 Mitsubishi L300 four-wheel drive is due for retirement. You might say "the sun is setting on her"...

Yesterday I got my "new" car, a 2004 Nissan X-Trail...

It's taken me a good while to make a decision so I'm hoping it will give me years of reliable service and let me visit some places I've been avoiding for quite a while now - and I can do it in comfort too.

With my new camera and my "new" car, I really do have to get some painting done now.


  1. May your new set of wheels provide you a lot of comfort and convenience on the road. How is it hanging these days? Judging from the length of time you had your previous car, I guess you know a thing or two about using and keeping a car together. If you can apply that attitude to your current ride and its specs, then there would be not much trouble when driving.

  2. It's simple really - pay someone to keep it going :)

  3. Well, I’d say you made a sensible choice with your new Nissan X-Trail. It’s a very attractive crossover because, not only does it provide you with the same power and activity as an SUV, it also gives you the comfort and luxuries you would normally find in a high-end sedan. Also, X-Trail is built relatively low as compared to its counterparts such as the Honda CRV. That allows for a smoother ride while on the road.

  4. The 1985 Mitsubishi L300 is a dependable vehicle, and it’s tough as nails. But sometimes, you just have to let go when the going gets too rough. For what it’s worth, I think it’s good that you got your hand on a Nissan X-Trail. After all, it had been awarded as “Best Compact 4X4 in 2006” and “Best Recreational 4WD” in 2007. So, you can be sure that the car can get you anywhere you want.

  5. So far, so good. There have been times where I've missed the L300 (soft sand) but the X-Trail is economical and reliable enough that I'm actually going places.
