Re: Diesel vs petrol MPG

My first QQ was a diesel and I regularly got mid-60s mpg

My current QQ is a petrol and I get mid-50s when I take it really gently

Re: Anyone upgraded to a X-Trail?

I was sorely tempted just before I bought my current QQ. Unfortunately, it was around the time they were tinkering with the X-Trail specs and they had dropped the particular model I wanted. I had hired a Rogue in Colorado in 2018 and really enjoyed it and from memory there was (unsurprisingly) certa...

Assuming you purchased it from a reputable dealer, take it back and make use of the warranty
I brought it private so don't have that option unfortunately

Re: 2017 Facelifted car, with SD card - downgrade headunit?

Until I got CarPlay I also kept my iPhone in my pocket (unless it needed charging) I think it’s Siri that makes the call. Mobile data on Bluetooth on Press and hold the button (essentially you are pressing the Home button on your iPhone) Siri makes an electronic beep Say "call Joe Bloggs" Siri/phone...

Re: Potential Qashqai owner/Buying guide help

Welcome to the forum. I can’t really answer your questions, sorry. Although, note that my last QQ was an n-connecta but when I bought it from new I added heated seats and windscreen. The devil will be in the detail of the car you are looking at w.r.t. the actual spec. A good friend had a 2014 J11a d...

Re: 2017 Facelifted car, with SD card - downgrade headunit?

I’m not entirely sure I have heard of the system you describe. My 2014 Juke and 2017 QQ (with the wheel and connect unit you describe) both worked well using the steering wheel controls. Incidentally, I 100% prefer the controls on the steering wheel, less time looking away from the road and no reach...
