    My car

    Not terribly impressed by the Qashquai as a family car. We had this as a (company) car and I much, much prefer our spacious Tino. I disagree with anyone who suggests its 'roomy' for the category that it's in. It unquestionably feels safe – a bit like driving a tank, the handling is a bit clunky although its comfortable, and I do like the high driving position, I'm constantly worried that I can barely see out of the back windscreen, nor what’s going on around the car in general.. The boot is small - not what I would class as 'family' sized, and once I've got just one childs car seat in the back, I have to push the passenger seat so far forward to allow my toddler room for his feet when reclined, I clonk my head on the doorframe when I try to get in. I don't even think we could put a seat (in recline) behind the driver because my husband needs it pushed right back. It feels quite easy to drive, so quiet that sometimes when reversing out the drive I'm not convinced the engine is on, although it does obviously get noisier at speed. Ours is new and therefore super-sensitive in the brakes department - lots of kangaroo jumps at junctions. The handbrake seems to be in a wierd position, although you get used to it. Its definately a mans car - very boxy and angular - my husband thinks its fine, but agrees its much smaller on the inside than the outside would suggest. Glad we dont own it, but theres nothing glaringly wrong with it, I just don't think it qualifies as a family car.

    My car

    I have now ovned the 1.5 DCI Tekna for nearly a month and love it. the driving position is really good and the diesel is a good little runner will happy go at 85mph on the motorway. The specification is great and is about the best you can get with the money. Kids love the sun roof and it make the whole car feel light and airy.

    My car

    I picked up a pre- registered 1.6 petrol Tekna nigh over 12 months ago. I have to say it is a great family car, not too big & not too small...perfect for my small family with a good image too! My only gripe being is that the rear shocks need replacing, and whilst i am having this done under warranty, my local dealer advise me the parts are on back order due to a common problem with the model...they said they alone have been replacing on average 20 cars shocks per week!!! The problem is identifiable through a knocking noise to the rear of the car when you travel over even the slightest of bumps in the road and whilst the ride seems fine the noise is really annoying. Anyone else had the same problem? A worry i have is when my shocks are replaced my warranty may run out and i end up in the same situation a couple of years down the line - only with me having to foot the bill!

    My car

    I got my new Qashqai in June. On Aug 14th some kids broke into it through the passenger window.

    The Nissan dealership told me it would take 1 day to do the work needed. The latest firm delivery date I have for the parts (trim) to be able to start work on my car so I can get it back is 23rd September. My dealership is 21 miles from the plant where the car is made.
