Nissan Qashqai - Best time to buy?

Post by Gitustoh » Tue Jul 28, 2020 7:30 am

Looking for a used Qashqai in the future, preferably from a dealer, and wanted to know if there are generally accepted 'best' times to buy, by which I mean most advantageous for the buyer.

I've heard around March is good because of the new registrations but don't know if this affects used stock. Am open to alternative softroader suggestions to a Qashqai.

I purchased a 2017 pre reg at end of January 2018. 10k on clock/serviced. Seems the low milers at £17k were in fair abundance then. Thats N-Connecta 1.6 petrol.

I kept an eye on nearby dealers * 2 and 2 around London. I'm in the W.Mids. So had some ammo to take aim at local dealer.

He pulled one out of nearby Heathrow and shipped to W. Mids in 3 days and I went for a long test. £200 down payment to transport refundable on rejection or toward car final price. Cut them down after that and reject all jangly add ons...upto about £800 if I remember right.
