Do not buy unless you are prepared to subsidize Nissan by acquiring replacement parts. Turbo pipes split every half year @ £216 each time. DPF blocks at £250 each time to clear which happens when the turbo pipes need replacing. Tyres wear incredibly fast so you will need a new set annually as well as the brake discs, yes discs not just the pads. I bought this car because my previous car was over 10 years old and was costing around £2-300 in repairs each year. The cost of my nearly new Nissan is 3 times this much. Serious loss of power if you need to accelerate hard such as overtaking. Plan well ahead or just don't risk it. When it works it is quite smooth, but as the damn thing keeps showing warning lights and the lovely garage rubs their hands at each call, I'll be getting rid of it as soon as I can. I no longer feel safe when driving this vehicle. The best part of driving this car is the sense of relief when reaching your destination.

Bought car November 14 with 39000 miles. Now has 53000 miles and I've had faults with the battery, starter motor, turbo pipe, dpf has been replaced and numerous bits of trim restuck. It suffers an annoying vibration from its engine bay when cold. It has a damp interior, too. Its the worst and most expensive car I have owned. If my wife didn't love it it would be gone.

I bought my Qashqai second hand as I don'y drive a lot. I just drive between 2,000-3,000 miles per year. Six months later, the engine power cut off during driving and wouldn't start back up again. I called recovery to pick me up and take to a Nissan mechanic, who found the water pump had stopped working, the valve damaged and the timing belt gone. All of those parts, plus gasket, oil filter cost €1,100. 800 miles later and I noticed smoke coming from the bonnet. I opened the bonnet and saw a lot of diesel had leaked all over the engine from the injector. I wouldn't recommend this car.

Abs control unit failed and the have such poor stock control that they can't get the car back on the road for 3 months. Not what i would expect from nissan. The dealer and nissan never talk to each other never call when the say they will and one of them likes to lie to get out of difficult questions.

Great car ,perfect for three kids and two dogs. Nothing else on the market offered seven seats, sat nav, ipod connectivity, blue tooth, colour screen reversing camera and glass roof for anything near the price of the qashquai. Plus it runs well and looks good , well pleased.

Very impressed overall. performance and economy very pleasing for a 1.5 cc engine. I would recommend as the down sizing from the xtrail has gone almost unnoticed in terms of most aspects other than the power, but the extra 2oo miles per tank and more than make up for that!! This is the first time i have stuck with the same brand but my nissan experience to date has been excellent.

Car is very good but next time would choose a bigger engine 2 litre would be better than the 1.6 i have as it sometimes feels a little under powered

I love it! I had some problems when i first bought it, but these appear to have been the result of an accident the car was in before i bought it. These were sorted out promptly by the nissan dealer. I love the comfort and handling of the car, the style and look of it, and the level of kit. The only thing i would say is that the heater takes a while to heat up so that i was home by the time it got warm in the recent ice and snow whilst my previous citroen c4 heated up really quickly in the same weather conditions.

Superb car but the only thing i find irritating is the windscreen (other)washer nozzles freeze and even on long journeys when the heat of the engine should defrost them, they remain frozen. I can't complain about any thing else. The car is otherwise excellent.

For a family it is a good choice, but it is not an inspiring drive, nor does it make you feel good. Engine is noisy especially when cold, and cold starting on frosty days is poor. Quality of aloys is appaling (all 4 replaced under warranty but only after a fight with the dealer)

The worst car we have ever owned (over a period of 50 yrs). Interior finish suggests a glorified van at best. Complaints from rear-seat passengers about sickness-inducing travel. The ludicrous electric sun-roof (designed not to open, let alone tilt) provides a greenhouse experience of value only to tomato growers. Sat Nav unreliable from day one (after one year Nissan wrote offering an upgrade at a princely sum) so has never been part of our travelling experience. The poor arrangement between the front seats mean the driver needs to be a contortionist to use the USB port. The utility aspect of the rear storage is very limited. Nissan customer service is so shabby, indifference with a token veneer of concern, which from day one convinced us we have made a wiser purchaser. Our previous vehicle, for eight years, was a Toyota Hilux Surf SSRX which in terms of quality of finish, extras, comfort, convenience far outstrips the limited Nissan Qashqai.

Worst company car I have had in over 20 years! Engine blew at 12,000 miles due to faulty injector it took the dealer / Nissan the best part of 12 weeks to replace the engine. Exhaust valve then went faulty. Eats front tyres. MPG on dash always says about 52 - 54 MPG real MPG is nearer 45.

I think the drive and feel of this car is great but I have had problems with it that make me unable to recommend it. Following a wobble on the steering when the car was 9 months old I took it to the dealer who informed me that the brake discs were rusty and needed all-round replacement. When I asked about the warranty I was initially told that it was wear and tear, and not covered. After a heated exchange with Nissan over email I asked how long they would warranty the brakes for if replaced and they told me 12 months! (9 month old car!). After pointing this out they finally agreed to replacement of the front brakes only even though I was told this could not be done initially. Rattle/Squeak of drivers seat, took to one dealer 3 times and they said there was no issue and that it had been tested against a new car. I asked the question of Nissan "Are you aware that your new cars have a seat that rattles?" I had to laugh when they said take it to the dealer. Out of frustration I took it to another dealer who immediately found the problem, the seat frame had broken. But rather than replace the seat Nissan decided much to the confusion of even the dealer to authorise welding it rather than replacement. However, this did sort out the problem for about a month after which I felt the weld go and I took it back to the dealer who now can't find an issue with it. Frustrated because I like driving the car, but I think that the dealers have driven me to another make.

Purchased this car on a recommendation. Pros: The space provided is fantastic; the rear two seats do feel like 'proper' seats (albeit that you would need to be under 5' to sit in comfortably); the middle seats slide forwards to provide additional space. Cons: Fuel economy is dreadful; the 1.5-litre engine is sluggish and would fail to get you out of a tricky situation; the position of the sat-nav is too low and frankly, dangerous (have had comments to this effect from all others who have driven car, without any prompting!); the interior is tacky, reeks of cheap plastic and has cheap-looking stitching on the leather seats; only one USB port and its position is awkward (would be better to have one on dashboard and one between middle seats, with cigarette lighter point); no hanging point on the side of front seats for coats, so the only place to put them is blocking the rear windows - not great for rear passengers - Nissan, you might want to look at Volvo in this respect, who do this simply, but very effectively; car grinds going into second gear. Overall, I would not buy this car again. There are far better (and nicer) cars on the market. For the price paid, I would have expected a better quality finish to the cabin and more attention to detail.

Quite expensive for a car, but this generation of crossovers has been excellent and the fuel economy has been better than expected, but the suspension needs improving. Great ride and nice high up riding position, pity the rear seats cant fold completely flat, like our other car a honda jazz. I like the rugged utility look and feel, and have taken it on to quite wet and muddy flat grass areas, so for a two wheel drive has handled quite well. Could have had the four wheel drive but didn`t think the extra money was worth it, considering the times it would go off road. Overall, quite a nice practicle vehicle and drives really well, with good upper range power for a 1.5 deisel.

Having been a driver for many many years i am extremely pleased with the qashqai's comfort and reliability. It was one of the first batch on the road and has had recalls for shock absorbers- once when the rears failed and again to up rate them- both under warranty. My only complaint is the front alloy wheels which seem to corrode easily from brake dust. They have been replaced under warranty but are again showing signs of corrosion. I would strongly recommend nissan cars.

Nice idea, but not very 'clever'. Surprised by the electrical problems i have had, with the car being japanese design.
