    My car

    With the kids too big for our aging Pug 306 Convertible it was time for a change. A more practicle car was needed, so what to opt for? We have a motorway cruiser on the drive so small and versitile was the order of the day.

    It quickly came down to the Honda Jazz or the Note, so we test drove both. My wife and I loved the fun, performance and handling of the Pug, but we knew we couldn't get that in a mini-MPV, how much would we have to compromise? We hated the lack of feedback from the steering in the Jazz. Would we have the same experience in the electrically assisted steering of the Note? No! It was a fine drive for such a tall car and offered all the praticality we sought. We've gone for the 1.4 SE because it offerred just the right level of trim we've grown accustommed to, and good economy too.

    This car is a box on wheels - but you can put things in boxes. That's what they do well. The boomerang lights try to hide it, but from the back or the front it's pretty obvious. I don't see the youth market going for this car, but if you need a workhorse to get from 'a' to 'b' economically with loads inside and three lumpy lads on board give the Note a spin.

    My car

    I currently own a Mazda 3 Sport 2.0l Hatchback. Not for long. Sure, the 3 is a fabulous car. But the Note is out of this world. The ride is comfortable but firm enough to be sporty enough for my needs. The fuel economy is great. The cabin quality is superb, it doesn't even feel cheap. It's funky and modern but extremely space efficient. To anyone who want's to buy a small family car that looks like the size of a bottle of coke, but feels the size of the tardis, with lot's of gizmo's. Buy the Nissan Note 1.6 S. It's, and I mean this, perfect.
