  1. Reasons to get a new Kadjar

    Same here even though there are no restrictions on that members postings ? Motormouth might know if you can find him🤔
  2. Reasons not to buy a Kadjar

    Totally agree with what you have just said, if I don't like something I will change it , trade in, sell on whatever, not start a topic on reasons not to buy a kadjar ever again.
  3. R-Link Download Manager mystery

    We do have a dedicated R link section on the forum , we asked motor mouth when he 1st took over to set up a section for the r link for the very reason the postings in other sections were getting flooded with r link issues and mods had to spend a lot of time moving postings to the correct section, I did ask for 2 sections originally one for R link and another for the R link 2 but binned that cause the new unit is still r link but with apple carplay etc, myself and shedder are still occasionally having to move posts to the correct sections but it's a lot better than it was. Members old and new should really look into the, how to section 1st before they post for info or use the search function if possible. Remember anyone can post helpfull info in that section of the forum so please do . Lots of handy info in there from fellow members.😃👍👍👍👍👍

    Replaced my front tyres at 19,500 with Kumho Ecsta PS71 225/45 R19 Y (96), Reinforced x 2 £124.21 per tyre, wasn't paying for continental at over £200 each and so far so good, no worse than the contis and they have good reviews , service advisor told me when in, they have had a few owners not happy with the life on the contis and also told me about another model of Renault which has 20" alloys and apparently you can only get replacement tyres for them through Renault, can' recall the model, but thought that was a bit odd you would have to replace tyres through Renault, maybe someone on here knows which model it is.🙁
  5. Reasons not to buy a Kadjar

    Don't take it as a dig, it's just my opinion and you know what they say about them, it's obviously not perfect the forum posts speak volumes on that but overall for me it's not been a bad car, I accept the car was rushed out to keep up with the SUV market and a few things were not 100% R link etc, but me driving a 65 plate can see that Renault have introduced new tech for that, CarPlay for instance which wasn't really widespread back when the 1st models came out and most car manufacturers are constantly updating models year in year out, ford for instance, Christ how many times has the feesty been remodeled over the years with different body shapes and new tech, pretty sure the new Kadjar owners are a lot happier than the Guinea pigs who bought 1st ( no offence to Guinea pigs by the way) I have been around long enough to know that buying Renault can be costly regards parts, servicing etc but knew that when I purchased and bought the kadjar mostly on the looks and previous experience from owning a Renault in the past. I haven't had any mechanical issues and have learned to live with the tech issues so is difficult for me to form a negative but I acknowledge its not for everyone . 👍👍👍👍😋
  6. Reasons not to buy a Kadjar

    Got to put my tuppence worth in, had kadjar about a year now and don't actually think it's that bad a car, granted when I bought it was naive about low profile tyres and that soon became a bug bear with me especially with the state of the roads nowadays but over time have managed to live with it but if I could turn back the clock would have went for model with 17" alloys and fat tyres. What some people have mentioned in here as reasons for not buying again are ridiculous , example lack of sensors on this model cost me an excess and no auto locking, Christ I remember when you used to have to use a key and even turn it to open doors and don't agree the build quality is that bad, trust me after been given a Dacia as a courtesy car while it was in for a service last week the build quality ain't that bad. Would I buy another one, no for the simple reason I have already had one and like to try different models. Will be keeping it for another 2yrs so opinion might change.😁
  7. R-link 2

    No update available for me and mine also goes in for service end of month, will ask when its in as someone with same details as me on previous page was able to update.
  8. Steering wheel noise

    I also have noticed this scraping noise from steering from time to time, had no idea what it was, seems to intermittent, will mention to my dealer when it's in for a service in February , will this be covered under the 4yr warranty ?
  9. Active emergency braking

    Click on the following link which explains it https://www.manualslib.com/manual/1047016/Renault-Kadjar.html?page=138 Hope this helps
  10. Active Braking

    It's probably just dirt on the sensor, does mention keeping sensor clean in drivers manual also explains how it works - see below
  11. Happens now and again with me and I also lock with handle or tailgate button, convinced it is because I didn't dead lock it -single press instead of a double. Didn't realise it comes up on dash when batteries on keycard are running low, handy info . Try dead locking from now on to see if it still occurs best advise I can offer based on my experience when it's happened to me.😊
  12. remote locking (Tanker)

    I had a 16 plate Megane a couple of months ago as a courtesy car and that had it , don't think it was introduced to the kadjar range till this year but I could be wrong.
  13. Where can I found this?

    Razvan, please update us all as to the meaning of your post, question , pointing out something or whatever so that we can respond with sensible answers for you.😀
  14. System Update This Morning

    Think it will take more than tapatalk issue to kill this forum. 😕
