An older man's tip, some will know of it.

To prevent damaging your precious Qashqai when the jack starts sinking into the ground.

Get a piece of multiplex (not soft board) about 20 to 25 mm (3/4 to 1 inch) thick and about 200 x 150 mm (8 x 6 inch)in size. It does not take up space in the boot.

Any surface other than concrete road/paving has the potential for the jack to sink, especially soft ground and even gravel.

Placing the jack on the multiplex will transfer the load over a larger area and prevent sinking also give a more even/stabile surface.
