I've just traded in my car (07 plate) for a Qashqai. This was done purely for space for holidaying but I would like to give others my review for the Note. Prior to the Note I owned a 2.2dci Tino extras and I initially found the drop in spec from Tino to Note a let down. Once I was familiarised with the Note and all of it's trait's I was delighted. It's nippy about town hold's it's own on the motorway and did all that was asked of it. Fuel consumption led a little to be desired when 'the wife' was driving it (very heavy right foot) but I managed a healthy 38-40mpg about town and easily 50-55mpg on the motorway. High driving position is a plus and it seated 4 adults with surprising comfort. This is a very healthily priced car and would have no hesitation in recommending it. My parting shot is there is'nt a huge difference in the cab (space-wise) between the Note and Qashqai.
I have owned a 1.4SE from new, having read the other reviews and having just had my car serviced by Yeoman Nissan in Bognor I agree with the negative comments on the other reviews concerning the dealerships, in fact after the way I was treated today whilst picking up my previously immaculate car, only to find contact scuff marks and plastics damage to the surround of the offside passanger mirror I join the discontented and angry. i was treated as a liar and inconvenience, and a "silly woman" it was suggested to me that the scuffs could have been done whilst the car was at Tescos!!!when i asked for the fact that the car had been damaged on their prperty to be noted on their system before i left it wasnt appriciated one bit by the body shop manager I was trying to reason with and I left feeling that customer care is not a phrase they would be familiar with.
I bought our Note in October 2006 from a main dealer, six months old with 5k on the clock. It now has 9k so you will realise that I don't go far very often. Having read all the previous reviews, it appears that most people who bother to do it at all, are quite pleased and satisfied with the Nissan Note. While some have had serious mechanical and poor response problems from Nissan and main dealerships, most seem to have experienced the opposite. While servicing is definately overpriced, common for most main dealerships, our Note has to date proved quite satisfactory with no significant problems, mechanical or otherwise. Okay, the power and build quality is hardly Mercedes or BMW, but then neither is the price or running costs. My main gripe is that the boot will not accommodate two large suitcases with a passenger sitting comfortably in the back seat. When I bought my car there were several small scratches on the bodywork, and despite my request to have them seen to when I bought the car, the result was very half hearted and the scratches reappeared after a short while. Having over the years bought five different Nissans at different times from that dealership, needless to say my next Nissan will be purchased elsewhere.
