Re: Expected delivery and subsequent delays

I’ve just seen mention, on one of the Facebook groups, that some dealers/car manufacturers are only supplying one set of car keys with new cars at the moment (not Nissan). The poster didn’t elaborate which manufacturers were implementing this policy, if it is at all true? :?

Another ‘71’ plate in Magnetic Blue on the road today (possibly a Tekna) 👍

Re: Expected delivery and subsequent delays

A poster on one of the Qashqai Facebook groups took delivery of their “Arctic White Tekna Xtronic with LED fog lights” yesterday, after ordering it in June :)

Yes, you can turn off the Steering Assist. There is an option to disable it in the “menu” system and also a “physical” button you can press too. I believe it’s turned “off” by default when it leaves the factory ;) 1709523E-4527-4BAA-A7B2-B6761B1E092C.jpeg Sandgrounder,so steering assist turns out to...

Re: What would make you cancel your J12 order.

The Drive Assist feature on my manual transmission QQ is quite good, to be honest - a step-up from the cruise control I’ve had previously. I had to turn off the Steering Assist feature as that was too fussy and seemed to be constantly making minor adjustments when driving on a dual-carriageway, for ...

Re: KIA EV6 Gloucester launch - October 2021

You would be changing the batteries in the key fob on a regular basis too, I reckon! :? I have just come across this feature but I am pretty sure if it takes that long to park the owner will not use it or too much abuse will come from other motorists. Possibly a new set Alloys would also be needed -...

20 used cars that have shot up in value in the last six months // Qashqai at Number 12

The Nissan Qashqai has been the most popular SUV in the UK ever since it first hit the market in the mid-2000s. Despite there being plenty on the road - and a new model hitting showrooms this year - values of second-hand examples are going up. A three-year-old Qashqai with 30,000 miles tallied up i...

Re: Where are all the New J12

I’ve seen another ‘71’ plate in Magnetic Blue this morning. That particular colour seems to be a recurring theme, similar to when I had my previous Qashqai in Vivid Blue!

Re: J12 Tekna // Two-tone Ceramic Grey with Pearl Black Roof

Overnight temperature dropped and it was 6°C this morning. I’m pleased to report that the heaters work quickly. By the time I had reached the end of the street, there was already warm air flowing! 👍🏻

Re: Where are all the New J12

I've seen five new J12s on the road around Preston in the last couple of weeks. Two '21' plates, two '71' plates and one 'personalised' plate. Four of them in Magnetic Blue, the other one in Storm White(?).
