    My car

    Overall quite pleased with my car cheap running costs fuel and insurance costs but service prices expensive at nissan also basic parts very expensive unfortately a vandal broke of my rear wiper arm and the basic plastic replacement part cost a incredible 55 pounds . Found my diesel 1.5 very noisy on start up and you need to get up a bit of speed up before it subsides to a acceptable level. Purchase price high but as i got a good trade in price i was not really effected by this but think i would view it as overpriced if i was paying full retail price . Other then the above its OK and should be reliable

    My car

    What a brilliant car!For a small car it has a. The very spacious and practical interior.The wide opening doors making it a doddle to get in or out. Driving the NOTE is the best part.The gearchange is excellent , the diesel engine is very responsive and smooth,ride is firm but good and the handling and steering are superb.

    You will struggle to find a better family car that is so good to drive and so well equiped.Even better for us was the £1600 discount which enabled us to buy the SVE for not much more than the S varient. All in all a very happy NOTE owner.

    My car

    Having covered 8000 miles I'm still very happy with my new car. No squeaks,rattles or any other undesirable traits have appeared. The inside of the car is very thoughtfully designed. There are nooks and crannies for storage everywhere and you have to see the rear legroom for yourself to believe it! Seating is comfortable, the controls are nicely laid out and the general feel of the car is one of quality. The 1500cc turbodiesel in my car is no rocket,but does have enough grunt for most situations. It's generally quiet and refined, although at 70mph noise is a little intrusive, however I feel that this is a small price to pay for real world 50mpg economy. One gripe about this generally good car is that it could be slightly wider. For all the legroom in the rear, it simply isn't wide enough for three adults. More alarmingly, with the addition of a baby seat- even a Nissan supplied one- three kids become a no-no. Having said that, I can't think of another car that I wish I'd bought instead.

    My car

    I've had my Note for approx 3 months and love it. It's easy and smooth to drive with no complaints of car sickness from the kids. The room inside is very impressive but the interior plastics are not the best. My 4 year old son broke one of the trays within 2 days by lowering it by the bottom of the cup holder. He did not use force - just made a mistake. The dealer (Bridges Nissan of Cirencester) assured me not to worry and that they would sort something out. Great service I thought until the new tray was fitted and the dealership tried to charge me £70+. When I complained I got it for 1/2 price (£36.31) but I didn't think this was reasonable taking into account the cost of the car, the fact it was 2 days old and that my son just treated it like any other 4 year old. Nissan Head office were not helpful either. Also a section of the dashboard had to be replaced as it did not lie flush.

    The car was supposed to be our second car but is has so much space it may become our family car when my husband's car is replaced.

    Overall I love the car but don't think much of the dealers or Nissan's service level and the trays in the rear are absolute rubbish.
