    My car

    Mine was white but apart from that this car is great in almost everything. The ride, handling and spec are all very good for this type of car. It's not fast but then it's quick enough to not get bored, the handling can be a bit like a lardy lad in the waltzer, but it gave enough feedback to make sure you didn't go daft. The 7 seat option was very handy at times when needed and overall it is really hard to find genuine faults. which for me is its problem, I m a grumpy fella and like to have a moan but I couldn't until that was when I needed to sound the horn. YIPEE it has a fault, the horn should be a loud baritone PARP instead it squeaks and I laughed so loud, the person I needed to use my horn for heard my guffaw's instead of the horn. In fact I kept pressing it to make sure the squeak was the proper noise and it is. Imagine Joe Pasqualie on the Helium, at half volume, then you get the picture. Thank you Lord I can moan. Having said that the sat nav was great and so was everything else, so support the guys in Sunderland because they have built a world beater in this car.

    My car

    Had this car (a 1.6 petrol Acenta) for just over a week and in my opinion it is the worst car I have ever driven. I picked the car based on the reviews (the majority of which praised the Qashqai) this was a big mistake, with the benefit of hindsight I should have test drove a car before making a decision. From the start I noticed a really bad reflection in the windscreen from the instrument binnacle, no doubt due to it be a different material to the rest of the dashboard - i.e. a shiny plastic, the gearbox is noisy (especially so in 2nd and 3rd), the road roar is excessive (Bridgestone tyres), when its been raining it sounds as though the rear windows are open, the car feels underpowered (especially on hills, of which there are quite a few where I live) and I find the ride to be choppy - contrary to reviews. It is a shame that these problems detract from the driving experience because the car handles really well and has a good specification. I might add that it seems to go against the grain writing a poor review of the Qashqai in light of the number of favourable reviews, though as they say 'there's nowt as queer as folk', in other words what suits one person doesn't suit another. To make matters worse I got the car on a personal contract hire and will be stuck with it for two years at least. I really don't want to wish my life away as it is short enough but I find the car so bad overall those two years cannot end too soon. C'est la vie!

    My car

    this is my second qashqai this one is the 1.5dci 360 special edition. excellent finish with all the extras you would want,you need to push the accelerator when in low gear but once up and running it is very smooth . averaging 48.8mpg that is on short journeys will expect better on a longer run.great car and I can highly recommend.

    My car

    This is my second qashqai visia. I had the last one 4 years with no trouble. I bought my second one in Sept 11. In Feb 13, the rear lights started coming on for no reason. Long story short .... it took 4 weeks for Nissan UK to do the repair under warranty. It needed a new wiring loom, which for some reason, you cannot buy off the shelf. It took a further 11 weeks to make and fit the wiring loom. 13 weeks in, they afforded me VIP status and gave me an XTrail, having previously supplied me with a Micra (4 weeks) and an astra (9 weeks). I love my qashqai, but it's not all sweetness and light.
