58-reg Petrol, Owner for Less than a year

I love my new car I was thinking of getting a higher wheel based car but nissan had not crossed my mind for they were very " plastic " inside and the interior looked " cheap "!
But whilst I was at the showroom for something else the dealer rep sugested I tried it on for size and assured me that the cheap interior had been addressed and was lovely now !
I was NOT DISSAPOINTED and decided afte a test drive that I MUST have one !!!r

This car has been totally outstanding, the quoted MPG is 36.6 avg, when on a run we easily achieve 45-50 mpg. 2.0dci auto superb.
When we had the heavy snow this car really came alive, it never got into difficulty and exceeded expectations.
Of course when we first purchased this car we did get a tremendous deal that did help in the purchase decision.

Brilliant car, it has surpassed all my expectations, i have previously owned 2 honda accords before this but the Qashqai +2 is by far a better vehicle, the interior trim isn't quite as upmarket as the honda but the overall package is much better, especially with the excellent finance deals the manufacturer was offering.

Only problem has been malfunctioning sensor unit for water in fuel filter fixed under warranty. Car's running costs are low, with ł30/year road tax and frugal mpg, though mpg is rather less than manufacturer's claimed mpg. can't comment on parts but dealer's fixed price servicing deal was good.

Not yet had 1st service but after 2000 miles absolutely no issues whatsoever. It has the latest 1.6dci engine and is one of the best in its class, low road tax and insurance- I havent yet managed to get the quoted 62mpg but around town and to work it is doing very well.

Previous owner had shock absorbers replaced. I have had no cause to call a breakdown service. The last main dealer service (3 year service) cost ł390 and 2 tyres cost ł140 each. I suspect/hope the next service will be cheaper now it is out of warranty.

Excellent. Servicing through the main dealership is far too expensive forcing owners to have it serviced from private garages.

We have had no problems at all. We would have hoped for more mpg as it is a diesel but some daily journeys are fairly short.
