Go Sunderland!! But where is the horizontal slatted grille seen on nearly every picture when googled? Shame they didn't keep the headlights and fog lights of the Invitation concept. Needs something to lift it above the just-a-facelift looks.
Jazz on the front & Picanto on the rear...hmm...nice...
I've had two of these Notes, a 57 plate one and a 60 plate one. The 57 plate one was the first car I owned, the 60 plate was the first overhaul of the Note and I think there were some changes that actually made the car worse. Possibly the worst bit in it was when they changed the air-con in the top of the range grade to a system with dials which was so hard to control whilst driving. Good to notice that in the new Note the old air-con clear big clear display with temperature clearly displayed is back rather than the one in the 60 plates which you had to look down at to try and see a tiny white dash on the dial to figure out what temperature you were setting (v. dangerous when driving and not what I expected from the top of the range version).
Also we noticed that in the 60 plate version the car never got hot enough with the new air-con in the winter. So hopefully changing it back to the old style will improve it.
Out of the two I'd much prefer to have the 57 plate Note, and the new Note looks ok but is starting to look too much like every other car out there which is boring. I like something which is unique. Last time we got a car we very nearly went for a Nissan Cube, and would have done had the boot not been a bit too small. That was quite uniquely designed, just a shame it didn't catch on in the UK.
