2008 Nissan Note Acenta 1.4 petrol


Everyman's car and very nice too!


Had it for 2 months and as expected, no problems with the electrics, engine or finish.

Driver's door latch will need adjusting at 1st service as it needs too much slamming.

Otherwise, first class.

General Comments:

I can't understand why there are not more about. Perhaps the conservative-minded are put off by the looks?


Extremely frugal on petrol, worst 8.2l/100km best 5.2l/100km. Engine powerful enough for long trips.

Very comfortable and the interior space and stowage is breathtaking for such a compact car.

Strong headlights, good ventilation AC, comfortable front seats, rear less so.

Excellent steering & brakes, parking it is simplicity itself, no need for parking sensors!

Rear tables are a very nice touch for when having a break or picnic. A car for all walks of life and ages.


The sun visors are too small and this is annoying.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Car is now out of its 3 year warranty, and in that time did not have to go back to the dealer for anything. Very pleased. Apart from a scratch or two, the car looks excellent inside and out; proven durability.

Fuel economy is very satisfying, will go to 4.8 l/100kms if run at 80 kms; who needs a diesel with this parsimony? A wonderful small car that has lots of space and desirable features.
