Hi all ,  just thought I'd write a little review of my new QQ. I've had several Nissans in the past including the SVE and T-Spec Primera well as an Almera and a couple of Micras. I switched to Vauxhall due to the milage I was doing and service intervals (12000 as opposed to 20000 with Vauxhall.)
Firstly the negatives ( and this is only my opinion and based on comparison with other cars I have recently owned over the last few years).
The interior plastics have got thinner and flimsier , especially the centre pillar , already have marks where the seat belt returns.
The attention to detail/finishing seems lacking ,a little rough around the edges  ie still have bits of paper/polythene on some interior parts (seats , interior light.) Not to mention the gap between the rear light cluster and boot.
The interior pillar covering also appears thinner than it used to ( cost cutting??)
Now the positives and there are many.Smile
The AVM is brilliant as is the Connect system.
The road/cabin noise is quieter than my Insignia.
The  heating system is much quicker and hotter than any car I've had.
The road handling is good.
The engine is one of the best in it's class as well as great mpg.
What I would have like to have seen on the Tekna is...
Auto window -down and up.
Full body coloured bumper/mouldings/ trim.
Electric seats and lumber support ( I have crushed discs and getting the exact lumber support is essential for me ).
More power sockets in rear ...not just on the QQ+2.
Choice of wheels Wink
Saying all this (and it's only my opinion) I would not change my QQ for anything else at this time.
