Nissan Qashqai diesel with Panoramic Roof
NISSAN QASHQAI 1.5 dCi Acenta 5dr (Review date: 12th April '11)
The nissan qasqai has been a fantastic car, well built, reliable and economical. The panoramic glass roof has been a really great addition. It has been effortless and enjoyable on a daily basis and always a pleasure to drive. By far one of the best and most capable cars i have ever owned, especially during the unpredictable weather we have had over the last couple of years. I have been the only person in my office to be able to get to work throughout the last couple of winters thanks to the qashqai. The car has always been serviced directly with Nissan and their service has always been to an excellent standard. i would recommend this car to any small family or someone who doesn't want an estate or the cost of a 4x4.
Great Family Car
NISSAN QASHQAI 1.5 dCi Tekna 5dr (Review date: 1st April '11)
Having owned a VW Golf prior i wanted some thing that could match the safety and reliability.
The Qashqai is great to drive and the 1.5 dci model has a fair amount of pull for a car of its size. Having gone from a 1.9 to this i was expecting a drop but it did not dissapoint. The car is full of great equipment that is really easy to use and well laid out. The only slightly out of placed item is the drivers windows controls which you need t rex arms to opperate.
The car offers loads of room for a family without the extra running cost of a full blown 4x4. It handles corners well and is a pleasure to drive. It feels soid and well build stacked with clear ideads that i use daily.
The bluetooth hands free works really well as does the sat nav both are easy to use and the ipod intergration is fantastic.
This is a first rate family car and i was gald to have made the decision to buy it
NISSAN QASHQAI 1.6 Tekna Sat Nav 5dr (Review date: 1st April '11)
I have owned my QashQai nearly 2 years and had no problems, It has a very smooth drive, and is very practical with a great driving position,May not be the best for acceleration, but is fine for a careful driver I have been driving alot more carefully taking note of road conditions and have acheived over 50mpg, and more.The tekna model comes with so many extras included, it would cost thousands on other cars, really impressive nowadays. Great looking car without the expense.
Nissan Qashqai 4WD, a good London car ...
NISSAN QASHQAI 2.0 N-Tec 5dr 4WD (Review date: 27th March '11)
Having recently changed from a Skoda with a similar sized diesel engine to 2Lt Qashqai 4WD, I was initially disappointed. The Skoda, although a longer car, handled better, was tighter on corners and its gearing seemed better suited to urban driving however, I am beginning to enjoy the Qashqai's better visibility, the roomier interior and its smoother ride over the city's speed bumps and potholes.. It sits well on the motorway and I like the cruise control. I have yet to try 4WD and, once I have fitted a tow bar, will pull a trailer.
Generally, I am well- pleased with it - it is what it claims to be, an all-rounder.
My Qashqai 1.5 N tec DCI
NISSAN QASHQAI 1.5 dCi N-Tec 5dr (Review date: 26th March '11)
My Qashqai 1.5 Ntec is the best car I have owned now. The best bit is the reverse colour camara, it has marks on the lense to tell you how far you are away from the object and you can get really close. It is very good around town and even better on the open road. It does not do quite what they say on the MPG but that might be, that I do alot of driveing around town. Good for getting in and out tight spaces. In and around town one might find changing gear a bit annoying as there are 6 gears. But that is the only thing that I can fault
great car !!
NISSAN QASHQAI 1.6 Acenta 5dr (Review date: 23rd March '11)
Having been a ' Ford man ' for many years I decided a change of style was needed so after much deliberation I decided on a Qashqai. I cannot find fault with it ..it is roomy , nippy and more economical than the Fords I have owned. The ' drive ' is great - responsive and of course the high seating position gives a very good view of what is happening around you. The many included extras such as bluetooth and rear parking sensors are very useful. Overall this car has style and practicality and I do not hesitate in recommending it.
Nothing special, adequate for the job but I wouldn't rave about it!
NISSAN QASHQAI 1.5 dCi  Visia 5dr (Review date: 22nd March '11)
WE NEED A CAR THAT IS FAIRLY SPACIOUS , HAS A DECENT SIZED BOOT IS COMFORTABLE TO SIT IN OVER LONG DISTANCES AND HAS A REASONABLE TOWING CAPACITY. INITIAL BUYING COST , RUNNING, MAINTENANCE COSTS AND INSURANCE RATING ARE ALSO MAJOR COINSIDERATIONS WHEN BUYING A NEW CAR. APPEARANCE IS ALSO A FACTOR . THE QASHQI MANAGED TO TICK ALL THE BOXES SO WAS THE CAR OF OUR CHOICE. SO FAR IT HAS MET OUR EXPECTATIONS AND HAS DONE WHAT IT SAYS ON THE TIN. THE 1500CC ENGINE IS PERHAPS A LITTLE UNDER POWERED FOR THE SIZE OF THE CAR AND THE STEERING A LITTLE HEAVEY BUT BOTH ARE THINGS YOU GET USED TO. SO FAR IT HAS BEEN RELIABLE EXCEPT FOR THE FACT THAT TWO WIRING LOOMS COMPLETELY BURNED OUT ( ACCORDING TO THE DEALER COMPLETELY UNHEARD OF) BUT THANKFULLY THE VECHILE WAS STILL UNDER WARRANTY AS IT WOULD HAVE COST US THE BEST PART OF £2000 TO PUT RIGHT. THE DEALER WAS GREAT IN GETTING IT SORTED THE PROBLEM SEEMED TO LIE WITH NISSAN AS THE LOOMS TOOK ALMOST TWO MONTHS TO MAKE IT TO THE DEALER FOR THE REPAIR. A ONE OFF? I WOULD HOPE SO . THE ONLY OTHER PROBLEM WOULD SEEM TO BE THAT THE SUSPENSION BUSHINGS WEAR QUICKLY AND THUS CAUSE RATTLES. NOT A WHOW DRIVE OR LOOKER BUT AN AVERAGE , EASILY RUN ( AVERAGE 50MPG, COMBINED , DIESEL) SERVICABLE CHOICE.
Nissan Qashqai Family Oriented
NISSAN QASHQAI 1.5 dCi Acenta 5dr (Review date: 22nd March '11)
I have found the Qashqai to be a very practical trustworthy car. Even though its a Diesel it runs forever on half a tank of fuel and it offers a very smooth ride.
It is ideal for disabled people as it is higher than a normal car so makes getting in/out very easy and stress free. It offers ample legroom (my hubby is 6' 1 and has no problems stretching his legs. The back is just as roomy and when the back seats are put down gives a very large room to carry large items. I had a very large chest of drawers which fitted easily in the back.
It comes with electric windows, central locking, cruise control and it allows your wing mirrors to close when parked up. Comes in handy when in a car park. Also has reverse sensors which let you know when you are coming close to objects you cannot see.
All in All I would highly recommend the Nissan Qashqai to everybody. It offers excellent value for money and is a very good looking car.
Nissan Qashquai - A Bit Disappointing ....
NISSAN QASHQAI 1.5 dCi Tekna 5dr (Review date: 22nd March '11)
The high driving position and well kitted interior is good (we have the Tekna model with panoramic roof and sat nave etc.) but the build quality is pretty ropey. Some really nasty finishing to the headcloth and around the sunroof which results in rattles that come and go depending on the temperature.
Rear shock absorbers are ridiculous for a car of this price. They need to be upgraded.
It drives well enough for a 1.5 diesel, if a little noisy, with a good turn of speed. Everything's still working well (16,000 miles on the clock). Had to replace two front tyres over the winter - £186 EACH!
So, summing up: Good enough for someone who hasn't driven better but actually very crashy and low rent for a car that can cost £23,000 new!
