Hi all, thought I would  give some input into long term Qashqai ownership. I picked up my Qashqai on 14th March 2009, and have now covered 20,100 miles. In this time my Qashqai did have a couple of recalls, all of which were dealt with quickly and efficiently by Glyn Hopkins Leyton.

All servicing has been carried out by Glyn Hopkins, 2 tyres and  also 2 headlight bulbs being the only additional outlay. Tyres were ú80 each, half the costs of the original Brigestones and so far seem just as good! Reliability has been 100%, starting first time without fail. I'm now scratching my head trying to think of dislikes!  Perhaps thats why Im hardly on here, too busy just enjoying my QQ Embarrassed

In all seriousness, anyone who has ordered a QQ and  questioning whether they've made the right decision or not? From a very satisfied long term owner, my QQ has been ( is ) a joy to step into every day. 

ps I do not work for Nissan! LOL

Peace

I've got the Acenta, at the time I bought it Tekna was the range topper. The replacement tyres are Nexen, never heard of them before, but they're just as quiet as the Bridgestones and ride / handling seem fine.

Peace

Hi Fee, yes I'm still around and enjoying QQ motoring! Time really does fly, remember the days of looking forward to the QQ launch in 2007? I guess like most forums, people will post when they've got problems or unresolved issues. This obviously can give a false impression and cause concern.

I've not posted for a long time, because I am more than happy with my QQ. I suppose there are many others who are the same. However I thought it would be helpful to post a honest long term review. Okay,  the newer engines etc are better without doubt, but the original appeal is still fresh to me.  

I do roughly 6K / year, still go down to Devon a couple of  times a year, and the 1.6 is adequate but no more than that.

Been keeping well!  Big smile
