Forum nissan qashqai passion



Don't be fooled - this is a Focus sized car at best. We are selling as the rear is quite cramped and the three year old's feet are already against the front seat. The boot is an ok size. but the my Wife is moaning about the lack of space.

That was the clincher for me - with 3 kids even the +2 wasn't quite big enough (the 20" bike with wheels on boot test..)

We bought one about 6 months ago, a 58 plate 2.0 diesel. It's the wife's car really and I was a bit meh about them and had been looking at something more fun as the second car. However, it's really good. Economical, quick enough, comfy and plenty if space. To be honest at 6 months I'll still take this rather than my V60 if nipping somewhere local at a weekend. Paid £7300 for a 58 plate 2.0d with 30k on the clock.

Would not touch another Nissan or Renault of which they are the 'Renault–Nissan Alliance'

Terrible build quality on the Micra and Renault cars I've had, you name it, electrics, mechanics etc.

Had one, loads of problems
With it, the dealers and Nissan UK. It was one of the first ones rolled out so it was always likely to be problematic. Driving position is great, nightmare in the back with anything more than two people. You barely fit a child in the middle.

I've had one as a company car for the last 3.5 years. 2.0d Tekna plus 2 version with manual box. Fantastic car that I have enjoyed for every one of it's 109000 miles and I will be sad to see it go. It has never had any problems and the selectable 4 wheel drive works well. The driving position gives an excellent view in traffic and if Nissan hadn't dropped the 2.0 diesel engine I would have got another. As for transporting bikes, I use a Thule roof bars/carriers.

Interesting didn't know that (I don't look very hard!)

My old Nissan was nails, and I'd been looking at them on that basis. A friend in Belgium had more than a few issues with his and Nissan lost a 20 year customer on that basis.

JD Power survey 2013 it was rated 19th out of 116 on customer satisfaction. Not the best (Skoda Superb), but certainly not the worst by a long shot. Interestingly Nissan Micra came 98th and the highest rated Renault was 45th and most considerably lower than that. So can't really compare all models by the same manufacturer.

We've got an 08 2 litre petrol auto. Mid range spec.

It's quite small on the inside. No more room than the likes of a golf. It's quite noisy and the height makes you really feel any side to side knocks like one side going through a hole. The seats feel very low quality to me. I dislike it. I'd say build quality was pretty poor but then again it was cheap. And the steering wheel has melted in the sun. No major reliability issues though. Gearbox not as nice as other modern autos I've driven but not a disaster. And it drinks fuel.

So it's fair to say it's not my favourite car ever!

Having said all that I'm also biased by not subscribing to this idea that high up cars are a good thing. Give me a normal hatchback any day. We just ended up with it temporarily because a relative was replacing it.

My sister had one and hated it, poor build with interior trim coming off and the most boring drive ever according to her. Then my partners nephew bought a new one last month due to growing family and he hates it too. It sucks the life out of him and he wished he never bought it.
