Road Test - Nissan Teana 250XV
16 Dec 2008  |  Nissan Reviews
Does the Nissan Teana deserve all the cold looks it gets sometimes for being an unhip, "uncle's car"? Now, we haven't gone insane, but we think it's rather cool. Read More

Review
Bought this car used @70k km and has since owned this car for the past 6months. Have clocked in additional 15,000km on it since then. Smooth V6 + CVT, quiet & comfortable especially when driven sedately at up to 140kph on the North South Expressway.However engine does make itself heard if Sport mode is engaged and driven hard. On a 50% 50% city highway, i can easily clock 9.2 - 9.5km/l. On the expressway when driven at a constant 130kph, FC is around 12km/l. Not bad for a gigantic car like this. Due to the V6 layout, 80% of max torque is available with the engine just above 1.5krpm. CVT programming will always keep the rpm low for max fuel efficiency.Ample power is available when the accelerator is floored, without the jerkiness of those conventional gearboxes. Due to the smoothness of the V6 + CVT combo, full throttle accelerations feels slower than it actually is. A quick glance at the speedo will show you that the needle will swing north very rapidly if the pedal hits the metal.

What I like
Ventilated seats, huge boot, ample legroom front and rear, comfy sofa-like chairs. HID headlamps with headlamp washer. Rear powered sunshade to sheild my baby when he is sleeping. Very cold air conditioning c/w Sharp Plasmacluster. Reasonable FC for a 2.5L V6. Huge 70L petrol tank! Front pasenger seat comes with electric ottoman adjustment.

Parts are cheap for such a big car if you know where to hunt for them. Low maintenance costs & very reliable.

What I do not like
Beige interior stains ultra easily. Its a PIA to maintain properly. Lots of funny interior noises which requires time and effort to troubleshoot and isolate. Very common to have leaking shock absorbers after 50k km. (luckily only rear shocks are affected and costs are quite low). Ugly GPS interface and fonts (by AsiaGIS SG). Huge turning radius, must be very careful when performing U turns.

Overall Rating  
Not so good as a LUXURY car.

Review
Tried the 2.5L version...

The exterior looks appealing and had a bit of the Infinity look.

Boot space is adequate but no electric tailgate option at all, even 3.5L

Drive was ok on straight road but engine is pretty loud when rev, despite similar engine with Murano.

Gear change not that smooth compared to Murano despite same gearbox of X-Tronic CVT....not sure why the difference.

Features are pretty basic too...not as much you can see, other makes should have more to give in this category.

Overall, too basic for a car that is categorised as luxury model.

What I like
Cozy interior feel
Smooth drive on straight road
Electric seats given for front passengers (only 2.5L and 3.5L)

What I do not like
Engine Noisy when throttle
No choices of interior as only one type
Most luxury add on are found in the 3.5L (i.e. Sunroof)
High FC
No electric tailgate for all ranges
Auto rain sensor or Auto headlights as only one is given

3. Push Start/Stop Button

5. Good Respone in pick up
6. Nice tail lamp
7. Great noise insulation
8. Built in GPRS

Review
The reason I choose Teana to Honda Accord is because Accord's price is too high & the boot is too small, and it is made in Thailand. For Toyota Camry, their sales reps are too "ya Ya",and the model is too old. Furthermore, it is made in Thailand. Teana is a new model and it is made in Japan. Its price is also cheaper.
I have been driving the Teana 2.0XL since 2008 Dec. I got the car at a very reasonable price, As everyone refers the Teana as a "UNCLE CAR", I like it because i'm an UNCLE too haha.
I can say that Teana is the most beautiful car in Nissan history, except GTR, 200SX...
I like this car for its large interior space and especially the back tail lamp. But the interior is too simple. As I always travel highway 90% and city 10%, FC is ard 11.6KM/L. For a 2 lit car this is ok for me, but abit under power.
i dont like the agent's after sales svs. When i got a car after a week, my steering wheel made some sound. I went to 2 svs centre to check and ended up it took me a mth to settle, so after the warranty, I went to outside repair shop for servicing and the price and servicing are much better than them.
For Teana owners, i recommend u all to buy the original spare parts from BKK, CHINA, TAIWAN NISSAN dealer, the price is much cheaper than local.

What I like
1, CVT engine.

2, Interior space.

3, Push button start.

4, FC @ 11.6km/L

5, Nice tail lamp

What I do not like
1, After sales svs

2, If forgot to off engine,when u lock the door,engine still revving.

3, Under power.

4, When the engine is started and the air con is on, there is a foul smell.

Review
I was driving the J31 Cefiro 230JM 05 model comes with reserve camera only. Thats cefiro is a good car but because its a 4speed auto you should FC is high. And the suspension is very soft. Overall a good car.

For Teana its a very good car to drive and relax, many feature in it. Much better than the previsious cefiro. I have not regret buying this car. I dont think i would wan to judge other brand. I only can said i been compare Honda accord 2.4 and toyota Camry 2.4. If you considering this car go ahead.

Even my Wife love this car. (very few ladies will appericate this car)
Overall Very Good

What I like
1. Ventilation Seat,
2. Soft Leather Seat
3. Push Start/Stop Button
4. Better Reserve Camera
5. Better Respone in pick up

What I do not like
1. Interior leather color (Beige white) very easy to get dirty
2. Boot size seem to be same as before
3. Xenon head light low beam(white) High beam(yellow) Weird
4. Fog Lamp looks very small
5. CVT engine (need sometime to learn how to control)
