Whenever I visit the dealer , I take a look at the new cars.
I see trends in gaps on the Qashqai , and a lack of consistency from side to side on the car.
As a mass produced car - I imagine there is a min/max tolerance that is allowed by quality.

We , on the other hand are obsessed by gaps , but then it reflects in the cost per car and hours per car to produce.
