2007 Nissan Qashqai Tekna 2.0 from UK and Ireland


My first Nissan, and highly recommended


Minor rattles.

General Comments:

Well built, with a good comfortable driving position, and copes well with road defects and speed bumps.

Performance is acceptable, and the CVT gearbox, although noisy when pushed hard in low 'gears', is clever and 'brakes' when you take your foot off the gas - good for hill descents.

Loads of gadgets in the Tekna spec - enough to keep anyone amused.

Great owners website with a useful forum - www.qashqaiclub.co.uk

2007 Nissan Qashqai Accenta 1.6 16v from UK and Ireland


Quality product



A welcome change after the horrors of the Renault Grand Scenic.

The worst I could say is that some of the interior trim is loose. I suppose this will improve as they build more, ours is one of the 1st off the Sunderland line.

General Comments:

It handles well, is economical, looks great, is loaded with kit, is relatively cheap to buy & is as reliable as you would expect a Nissan to be. If I could afford it, I'd get another one to replace our 2nd car with, it's that impressive.

Definitely worth a look as an alternative to a Focus, Astra, Golf, Megane etc - the 4x4 style looks & driving position, coupled with the handling of a normal hatchback, give you a great driving experience.

Loads of space inside & in the boot.

Good dealer network.

Well in fact, it isn't. The 1.6 liter has a Nissan engine!

Update for this car.

Car has now covered 20,000 miles.

No issues with build quality or electrics on ours, although it is a worry to see that others have not been so lucky with theirs.

Remains exceptionally reliable.

One issue has been belt noise that the dealer rectifies only for it to return a few weeks later. They have struggled to identify the cause.

One recall for rear suspension struts.

We will be changing the car when it is 3 years old. We are seriously considering another Qashqai.
