    Posted: 09áJaná2019 at 10:04am
Hello everyone,

Quick introduction:
I am Portuguese from the metropolitan region of Lisbon.
I was anxious to get a Qashqai because of its usability on rural roads, and dirt roads with rain wholes.
Until April 2015, when I got an Accenta 1.5DCi

What a disappointment the car has been, let me share with you my dislikes:
- Radio bluetooth
Some days pair, others not.
I have to delete the phone from the device list over and over and re-add almost every time I get in the car.
The hands-free bluetooth connection has stopped working. 
It took 4 visits to the service to solve and only solved replacing the whole radio on warranty. Just because of the mic.

My biggest complaint:
-Suspension
How horrible. Looks like I ride in a 1980 jeep with  simple spring suspension.
Poor absorption on the road.
It seems that you are undergoing a Thai massage in the lumbar , but the Thai woman is angry with you.

Little things that irritate:
- When you enter the car and turn the ignition just to power on the radio and window (without engine start), the radio turns on and stars pairing the phone.
But then, you  turn to start engine and everything goes off and on again. 
Obviously it takes time again to pair with the phone, if it does not fail ...
Is this is a poor design of the electronics around the engine start process, or is it something wrong with my car  ?

- Do not have one-touch power windows for windows other than the driver's.

Is it just me or are there more owners / drivers complaining about the same things?

I joined the club to try and get an idea if this happens with a lot of cars or if people just don't even bother with that.

Hi and welcome Big smile.

Sorry to hear about your problems.

I am on my 5th Qashqai and can honestly say I have had no complaints regarding any of these issues with any of them.

I will however agree on..............
  • Hard ride - but I always go for the biggest wheels, so that is the price I pay for looking Cool.
  • Audio restarting at engine start - but I guess that is the way it should be.
One-touch passenger windows are on the current model, but no - I don't think they were on the 2015.

Phone pairing should be automatic and unnoticeable - which phone do you have?

I assume you took a test drive before buying. You would have questioned the suspension then I would have thought.

Why buy a different car to the one you test drive. You would not try out Samsung S series phone then go and buy a A series.
