    Both diesel. Which would you go for? I bought the qashqai few months ago but i hate how it drives too heavy feels like a tank and its so noisy and rattles like crazy when i go over a small bump or ramp. Paid 11500k for it cash and ive been trying to sell it privatly no calls yet. Spoke to a garage that would take it straight swap for a 308 year 2010...

    Not that I think the Qashqai is beyond criticism, but its a fine car and you possibly have a dud. I'd look to get that rectified first then consider changing.

    how much have you advertised it at if you don't mind me asking.
    It also helps to add as many pictures and as much info as possible if you need help with your add let me know.

    The market is flooded with the Qashqai

    I think you need to drive another qashqai and compare. What you're describing doesn't sound typical of how they drive.

    They are a very light car I found when drove 1st one in 07 but like the new car smell


  • Registered Users Posts: 46 lemon3107


    Thanks all for the replies, the car is in perfect condition it had only one previous owner and was looked after like a baby. Its alsofull leather inside so its not like a typical qashqai. I have got it checked out but been told theres nothing wronh with it, its just that the car is heavier. I get that, but theres rattles and squeeqs that i hear coming from the back/ the boot that really annoy me. I had a golf before this and that was so easy to drive compared to this around bends/roundabouts. Im advertising it for 12000 exactly what i bought it for..

    Would it not make sense to source the source of the rattles? Probably something simple, and leather seats tend to make squeaky noises anyway. And the handling you mention should have been blatantly obvious on a test drive. Even though they aren't as bad as you would expect given the height.

    Apart from the terrible cabin, they are indeed a fine car. Is yours the 4WD version? They are very heavy indeed....

    I havent tried any since buying this one,i did test drive a few before buying and they all seemed to drive so nice at the time!!


  • Registered Users Posts: 73,455 ✭✭✭✭colm_mcm


    Maybe take a few for a spin from dealers and compare. What you're describing sounds like a fault rather than a characteristic.

    Since it's taxed on emissions, I don't see why you would be bothered by the size of the engine:confused:?

    Insurance is still based (rightly or wrongly) on CC...can be a significant factor at young ages.
