2015 Nissan Qashqai Tekna Dci Auto 1.6 turbo diesel from UK and Ireland


Not a user friendly car around town and not a happy chappie at all


The accelerator is too sensitive at low mileage e.g. about 15/20 mph. Very jerky and unpredictable. You never know when you're going to get a response, and the car may take off like a rabbit or just a crawl. Highly dangerous at roundabouts and junctions. The dealer has checked it on the computer and nothing shows up, so consequently they will do nothing. 3 times actually I have mentioned this issue and no satisfaction at any time. This is my 4th automatic car, over the past 15 years, so I know what I am talking about. I don't recommend this car to purchase, as driving it is so stressful. This is a £28,000 car, and for that money you would expect a superb car, but sadly this is not a good car. I'll have to keep it for some time yet as I would lose too much money to change it now, but I will at the first opportunity. As of now, I much prefer to drive my wife's 10 year old Nissan Note.

General Comments:

Good to drive when you get up to around 50/60 mph. Economical enough for an automatic. Road noise is very excessive for a car with this price ticket.

Lovely car to look at. Good driving position.

Floor mats supplied with car are so cheap and nasty looking.

Lights are very low, but cannot be adjusted as all this is automatic. Automatic wipers are not fit for purpose either as intermittent does not wipe often enough in a light shower and I have to go to the constant position.

Great brakes.

Finished off very cheaply with various bits and pieces, for e.g. the radio, speedometer and rev counter covers are covered with some kind of cheap perspex. Should be glass. First time I cleaned them with a cloth they became scratched. Never saw perspex used here before.

Very comprehensive computer system for various functions, but I only hope it keeps working as I can only imagine a breakdown here would be catastrophic.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Just had a Juke auto on loan - that was similar - almost undriveable - at low speed it was either "dead" or it took off like I was going Back to the Future!!! Mad!!!
