Re: Latest connect / infotainment question

Ask for your deposit back & go buy something else, well that's what I would do. It's not like there is a shortage of cars out there. On the website of Nissan here, they mention that nissanconnect with android auto and CarPlay comes as standard for every Qashqai edition above Acenta. I purchased the ...

Re: Latest connect / infotainment question

Do you think this is by accident or deliberate? No need to answer. If any car manufacturer made a car fully upgradeable, they would lose so many sales they would collapse into liquidation. So they do the opposite and make the car non-upgradeable, so you have to keep buying another car. Very bad for ...

Re: Qashqai Turning off after rear end accident

Hi,

This feature is in most modern cars, if not all of them. Its designed to turn off the fuel/fuel pump after an accident to stop the car from catching fire if a fuel line was broken.

Re: Can't remove glow plugs!

Nick, No idea when to find instructions specifically for the QQ. But there are loads of stuff on YouTube. Removing the glow plugs and disconnecting/replacing injectors is quite straight fwd. Can be a bit messy and they can get stuck in hard. Also, you will need to replace the gasket/seal for the inj...

Re: Intelligent Emergency Braking

I totally agree, its only ever going to work with close combat ; :twisted: Yes Daewar i am quite aware that the blind spot monitoring is for traffic approaching from the rear. I probably should have said upcoming instead of oncoming. Problem is, if you are travelling at 50 mph and an upcoming vehicl...

Re: Fuel for 1.3 Dig-T PS140

To take advantage of high octane fuel the engine needs to have been fitted with an anti-knock device, this allows the ignition to be advanced by the engine's computer. My previous Mini Cooper S had this. Apparently, it's not instantaneous, the computer needs to learn / calibrate over a period of tim...

Re: Intelligent Emergency Braking

northernbeat, You do realise the blindspot monitoring is for cars coming up from the rear, not approaching you from the front? I have it on my QQ and it works very well, if anything it's oversensitive and indicates a car is in the blind spot when nothing it there. I'm happy it's oversensitive, rathe...

Re: Just ordered a Tekna plus.......

Hi travel, you are easily pleased, which is nice to see. Personally, I think all the QQ's are very slow and lethargic, but for the most part is sufficient for what it is and with the low power engine usually u get great fuel mileage. Picked mine up on the 30th Nov 2018 . I was only test driving it a...

Re: Electric Push

I suppose they won't be so likely to get overheating batteries as its often very very cold. 🙄 It appears that a third of all cars sold in Norway last year were Electric and the Top Selling Model was the Nissan Leaf - Dave 🙂 https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2019-01-02/electric-cars-on-course-t...
