Two into one goes well!

NISSAN QASHQAI 1.5 dCi [110] N-Tec+ 5dr (Review date: 28th February '14)

5

Having downsized from two cars to one we needed a vehicle which would suit both my wife and I. The Qashquai has proved to be the perfect solution as both of us love it!

We love the colour, the way it drives, the running costs are minimal and the high driving position suits us really well! Imiss the automatic gearbox of the Mondeo and the key-less entry and the swivelling headlamps but only just as they are a fading memory.

NISSAN QASHQAI 1.5 dCi [110] N-Tec+ 5dr (Review date: 8th February '14)

4.8

So far so good , the Qashqai drives well but the first and second gears are small. Once up to speed the car is very quiet and responsive . Good layout of steering wheel controls and a pretty nice sounding factory fitted Nissan connect sat nav/ radio that will take very much anything you can plug in to it, usb , ipod etc. the car is # #### ##### but I will say that the dci engine is very clattery until warm. If you are over six foot tall I would advice you to watch your head on the tailgate as for a high sitting car the tailgate does not lift too high. All in all very pleased with my car. If you want a nice economical family car that has a high driving position then the Qashqai could be for you.

Great all rounder

NISSAN QASHQAI 1.5 dCi N-Tec 5dr (Review date: 28th December '13)

4.5

Had this car for a month now part ex my focus diesel after a lot of thought, it was between a kuga and the qashqai the kuga out priced itself would have spent over ##### more on one and I'm very happy I didn't. The Nissan is very comfy and easy to drive with plenty of room for a 6 footer+ the extras speak for themselves Bluetooth,reverse camera pan sun roof folding mirrors. fuel cons is great average 59 to gallon on my 60 mile round motorway trip to work, the power is more than ample being the wrong side of 50 my interest in speed has long gone it's comfort and mpg for me and this ticks the box .Would defo look at getting another one in a few years time ,the only thingies will miss is the heated front screen on the focus but a small price to pay

Quashqai brakes fail

NISSAN QASHQAI 1.5 dCi [110] N-Tec+ 5dr (Review date: 31st August '13)

3.3

I was generally pleased with my Qashqai having bought it from a Nissan dealer in Knaresborough and was glad to buy British. It is just about a year old but the brakes failed recently when the kids were in and neither the dealer or the Nissan warranty people will re-imburse me for the costs of repair. Luckily no one was hurt but i feel badly let down by the after care. They are like a typical insurance company and looking for ways of avoiding paying for the consequences of their quality defect.

Disappointed and let down!!

NISSAN QASHQAI N TEC + 2013 DCI

NISSAN QASHQAI 1.5 dCi [110] N-Tec+ 5dr (Review date: 9th July '13)

1

Got this car 1 week ago after owning a Qashqai and its not how it should be:

The roof is leaking !! yes a 2013 car and the roof is leaking

The panels are all out of line and the quality is appalling to say the least.

I took it to my local dealer and the technician said it needs to go back, then i get a call off Nissan saying all the faults can be rectified and thats the course of action they will follow.

So i will be stuck with a car that may have it,s panels and welds moved to try a line the panels up and to have a new glass roof fitted.

Who wants to keep a car like this ??

It will be sold and i will take a hit but i will not be fobbed off with a car that is not fit for the purpose.

Be aware and go around the car with a fine tooth, they are not what they used to be and nissan just fob you off.

More than disappointing...shocked and really upset at the moment

Just not a Nissan

NISSAN QASHQAI 1.5 dCi Tekna 5dr (Review date: 5th June '13)

3.5

What can I say. It's time to get rid of it...

It could be an excellent car but the quality is ridiculously bad. Plastic trim and loose panel fixings all over the place.. It feels thrown together- and it's now coming apart...

All the luxuries : panoramic roof: rattles like a pram when open ( along the runner and trim); headlight washers: activated and fell off! Leather seats that are more plastic than plastic seats...

I've had plenty of nissan's over the years: 3 Cherry Turbos (incredible cars ), 1 Bluebird (great) - all Nissans. Not Renaults thrown together in the North East.

Very comfortable and practical though! Even if the suspension's now starting to show signs of giving up....

My other car is a Y reg is200. That's how a Japanese car should be built! I wouldn't recommend buying a Lexus 4x4 unless you hike your budget but,comfortable and practical though it is, I wouldn't recommend a Quashqai either.

Fantastic Car

NISSAN QASHQAI 1.6 Acenta 5dr (Review date: 20th May '13)

My Qashqai has been a fab car, as soon as I sat in it I knew I wanted it. I have never had any problems with it (apart from when I ran over a great big spike, luckily I'm in the RAC & I had my eyes checked after that lol) so its had all new tyres since I got it in nearly 3 years ago. The only thing I will say what I think is wrong with it, it should have 6 gears, only got 5, other than that it is a very good car. It is low insurance & low tax.

Not worth £19k new!

NISSAN QASHQAI 1.5 dCi [110] Acenta 5dr (Review date: 12th April '13)

2.8

Firstly I will start with practicality, inside is awfully cramped for me, I am 6ft 5 and I like plenty of space, but it isn't the case in the Qashqai. In order for me to get comfortable behind the wheel, the seat has to be put back so far that the seat behind cannot be used unless you have no legs at all. There also isn't much elbow room, you feel squashed sitting in it, and i'm fairly thin. Never had these problems in the Peugeot, it felt like an MPV inside. The storage isn't bad, I like the design of the cup holders and the centre cubby hole under armrest. The door pockets are too narrow and don't hold much at all.

Onto reliability, my car has been brought back to the dealership on a number of occasions, the engine management light appeared out of nowhere, according to Nissan there was no fault. The second visit was due to the car struggling to start in the mornings especially when it's cold! Bearing in mind the car is 2 years old with 18 thousand miles I wasn't pleased. Again, my Peugeot never went wrong once.

Running costs aren't good, I don't do many miles but the car can never seem to get over 40 MPG. The tax is quite dear for a 1.5 diesel at over 120 pounds, I paid 30 on my old Peugeot 308 1.6 diesel. Also, the most it's ever went on 1 tank of fuel is 490 miles, again the Peugeot done near 700 miles!

How it drives.. Well, it isn't bad, but isn't good. There is next to no support in the seats so you roll about a lot along with the car itself. The 1.5 dci 110 is seriously out of it's depth, the power band is tiny, in some ways i'd call it unsafe.

Great car-1.6 M/T full option

NISSAN QASHQAI 1.6 [117] Acenta 5dr [Start Stop] (Review date: 4th May '12)

4.8

I bought this car since December 2011 brand new, and it is of-course model 2012. It is a very smooth ride i can hardely hear the engine running. Firm on the ground and suspension is amazing, especially when it gets bumpy.Great looks, loaded options..AMAZING.

My other owned car is Mecedes-Benz C200K AVANTGARDE!! For a Benz driver to admire a Jappanise car, that can answer on all the negative feedbacks that made me going crazy to read!!! Most of the creticism is personal problems or driver's attitude (read again the reviews).

Pros:

-Great vision on driver's position (feeling powerfull)

-Easy access over vehicle controls on driver's seat (lovely feeling)

-Plenty of room and space inside cabin (travelling is enjoyable)

-Steering, brakes, audio, and smooooth handeling, and fuel economy (comfortable feeling)

Cons:

-Moderate kick down, expected more, but satisfied with it (one star deducted, cuz nothing is perfect)

Those who plan to buy it, GO AHEAD, you'll enjoy it..

THE CAR WAS EXPENSIVE AND NASTY { NOT CHEAP AND NASTY } plastic inside was left with a lot of sharp edges ignition key was far to large when in your pocket not a foldaway one Service package was not refundable if you did not use it dealership and nissan gb very unhelpful when asked for refund Also not told about the exhaust filters that have to be heated to a certain temprature to clean them out Alltogether a very bad experience with nissan which i will never deal with again
