Re: Adrian Flux Insurance Services - up to 15% discount for Qashqai forum members'........

I always do a comparison with my insurance. Recently SAGA sent me the quote for the coming year Home and Contents and it had gone up unreasonably. I called them and told them what I was getting quoted on the comparison website and they immediately reduced their quote by £20. If they only increased l...

Re: Advice on MK1 Automatic Purchase

Don't buy a CVT there have been problems. Check out the issues in the USA. They had to give 10 year warranties eventually. I have a 14 month CVT and it is fine but had I known what I know now I would have bought a Kia or Hyundai. I was supporting the local industry at Sunderland at the time by buyin...

Re: I've mounted dynamic turn signals :)

I have noticed that some QQ have daylight lights which also go on and off like the turn signals. Is that normal?

Re: Sunderland not now getting production of X Trail

The present X Trail is made in Japan. I had a look at sales figures on carsalesbase.com and Nov. 2018 was the lowest sales over the last 4 years at 2174 so they have really taken a dive from 11330 in Mar 2017. I don't think they are as good looking as the latest QQ so there new model, if it does eve...

Re: Sunderland not now getting production of X Trail

Our local press saying no change to workforce numbers. Mentions more than 10% reduction in sales and also mentions union not happy because of a forthcoming pay rise negotiation. The diesel engine situation has had a massive effect on sales worldwide.

Re: First service due

I had my QQ in for its first service just before when it was due at the end of December. It was £199 and they wanted £12 for picking it up and returning it, a total of 8 miles, but I got them to waive it when I told them I might go elsewhere. I took photos all around the car inside and out the day b...

Re: QQ 1.2 DIG-T N-TEC+

Something else to think about. You are looking at an N Tec like mine. It has the Intelligent Braking System which I thought at first was a good thing but last month it activated for no reason when travelling at about 40 mph on a country road. There were cars behind us and fortunately they braked as ...

Re: QQ 1.2 DIG-T N-TEC+

I have a 1.2 dig T CVT just over a year old from new. It is a nice car and I have had no problems with it. However after reading about problems with the 1.2 engine and in my case the CVT transmission I wouldn't go near it if I was buying now. There have been problems and if you do a search on here y...
