    My car

    Test drove the Qashqai this afternoon, the Acenta 2.0 litre automatic.Fell in love with the looks, both inside and out.The seats are blissfully comfortable [ I suffer chronic back pains..slipped disc for 30 years].At last perfect driveable leg room for my 34" legs..Im 5'10. Only went in to look, have ordered it in Fired Iron with chocolate/orange for the inside...yummy!I need good seat height as suffer arthritus in the knees as well as the bad back [ poor lil ol me! ] Its easier to get into than my Honda CRV , which Im allowing hubs to have..more leg length, more seat comfort, easier entry [ as long as you duck your head!!!] So easy to drive, no worries at all, cant wait till end of July delivery.IM IN LOVE WITH MY NEW CAR ..TOTALLY!

    My car

    The car is fantastic but I have to agree with others - without the DFI filter there's no point in buying the 1.5 DFI with Euro 5 just around the corner, because it is going to be difficult to resell.

    It has a great interior and general looks. I hope that Nissan wisens up and update the 1.5 with a DFI filter.

    My car

    After 1500 miles in six weeks, the new car novelty has not worn off yet - I love it. My last car was a new Saab convertible and I wanted something totally different - this is it (although I do miss that turbo).

    With the elevated driving attitude of a 4x4 but the handling, agility and parking convenience of a medium hatchback, it is quite something - a bit of a Tardis. The interior and controls are smart and the optional sat-nav incorporating the stereo, Bluetooth, reversing camera and onboard computer is superb.

    The only minor niggle is the steering column stalk controls, being difficult to see whilst driving and impossible to tell whether you have them on, off or auto. I went for the CVT and my only reservation with that is the noise it makes when accelerating hard from a standing start (maybe I shouldn't do that). I test drove the 2.0 manual and that was fine, so I guess it is the gearbox, not the engine.

    In praise of the CVT though, I like the way it 'brakes' when you take your foot of the gas, say going downhill. The Saab auto tended to run away with you, so you were either braking all the time, or changing down manually (defeats the object of the auto box). I had planned to wait for the 2.0 diesel, but at £1300 more a quick calculation proved it would take me 3 years to break even on fuel cost savings, so that was a no-brainer as they say.

    My first Nissan and highly recommended.

    My car

    The Qashqai is a great car both inside and out, only problem is there is not DFI filter (even as an extra) on the 1.5 diesel and this has put me off buying it especialy as Euro 5 comes into effect in a couple of years.

    I think it is pretty short sighted of Nissan to offer a diesel with out the filter when every other car manufacturer is offering diesels with the DFI filter either as an optional or as part of the package.

    Only option is to upgrade to the 2.0 which comes with the filter as standard. For me the 2.0 is just to big.
