    My car

    This is a good car and had it for nearly a year got it with 27,000 miles on it would agree on the tyre choice...there isnt any choice! and the only ones are EXPENSIVE. Car handles well in the country lanes and on the main roads 1.6 has good turn of speed. good interior room and boot space only thing is its slightly narrow in the front seats and you can rub shoulders easily now and again. and the seats themselves are a bit on the small side could be a bit wider and deeper good leg room in front though.

    As Lynn Western I also have a stuck rear seat the large section will not fold down, I would think that they are making a new part for this problem but maybe the earthquake has slowed up parts? will check later this year on a fix for this.

    fuel consumption is okay 42mpg average it seems to be frugal in and around town than out on the fast roads. Had a Peugeot 306 1.6 petrol which was the opposite for fuel (brilliant on a long run but thirsty in town)

    But Note is a good car its got an image problem seems that older people are driving them, WHY?... but its a good sensible family car.

    My car

    Bought new last September and now done 7000 miles. It's roomy and very civilised to drive for a car of this size and price. It's rather low geared which is good and bad as it means it picks up well but sounds a bit revvy at higher speeds. The ride is good and there are enough gadgets to keep you happy. The keyless ignition takes some getting used to and I still don't trust it. Sometimes it's a bit fiddly to get the starter button to turn but that's probably me. The passenger space is great but it would be helpful if the rear seat could be made to tumble forward and thus make the load space more practical to use.My previous car was a Honda Jazz which had the most versatile interior I've ever encountered. On balance the Note is better to drive but the Jazz had a more useful load space.

    My car

    On the road - i've had mine since september and it breaks down alot, you drive along and suddenly the car de-rates itself and puts you into a limp home of 10mph. Brilliant for motorway travel as it certainly keeps you alert as you never know when this surprise will happen.I have had this problem fixed 4 times and it has just happened again so its back to the garage for a 5 time. Running costs - i would recomend you never fill the tank up, simply let it break down and the garage will have put some in for you when they "test" your car

    Nissan aftersales tell you constant lies and they aren't even clever enough to remember them. They always assure me the car is fixed but it usually breaks down within 2 weeks

    I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND ANYONE TO BUY A NISSAN NOTE AND I'M LOOKING FORWARD TO YEARS OF PROBLEMS

    If i could afford the legal costs i would reject the car. And many thanks to the people of the Sunderland plant for my great car

    My car

    good car, easy to drive amd very manouverable. Comfort and space good. Servicing costs too expensive, i.e. £508.00+ 2nd service, not made aware of cost. Will not buy Nissan again after being loyal customer for over 15 years.
