  1. Low MPG vs Advertised on 1.2 TCE

    No, I've never used it on the Kadjar. It drives great without and I'm not prepared to jeopardise that just for the sake of a couple of mpg more. I used it all the time on my previous Captur but that was a lighter car.
  2. Low MPG vs Advertised on 1.2 TCE

    I don't think there is anything wrong with your car. The 1.2 TCE, depending on type of journeys etc., is thirsty. I've been getting low thirties all winter and have resigned myself to the fact. I don't have to commute and can please myself when and if I drive. I tend to take the longest route shopping just to get the engine up to working temperature. I realise that this improves my mpg, but at the same time I am having to drive more miles. Therefore no benefit, but hey, life is sometimes shit. I am hoping that the onset of warmer weather will bring improvements. I had my first service two days ago which entailed a 12 mile drive down the M1 to the dealers. My mpg for the journey back was 38.9 (constant 65-70 mph) so anyone having a long commute to work via Motorways will naturally get more respectable figures. Let's hope the new 1.3 engine will be more economical when it comes into service. Otherwise I'll be looking elsewhere for a replacement.

    I expect when Ted finds the smelling salts he'll have something to say to that! Dune doesn't look too bad on the photo, it seems to grow on you.

    Does the Nissan equivalent of our RLink2 in the QQ work more reliably than ours? Or is, as I suspect, their Forum full of complaints from disgruntled Nissan owners? You should know this Ted, I believe you are still a member of the QQ Forum.
  5. Styling bars

    Hi guys, what am I supposed to be looking at here? I can see the puddle lights but not make out anything else. What are styling bars?
  6. Reasons not to buy a Kadjar

    I'm with Kug on this one. I've had mine about 11 months now and I haven't had any major problems so far - touch wood. Any niggles I can live with or work round and I find that it is still mechanically a great car and pretty good to drive. If I have a gripe at all it is with the absolutely crap mpg. The 1.2 TCE is definitely not the car for Ted, he'd have slashed his wrists after a week! I'll probably keep this for another eighteen months or so, and hope that by then the new 1.3 will have replaced the 1.2. Either that or it will have a plug-in Hybrid version. If either of these scenarios becomes reality then I would have no qualms about buying another Kadjar.
  7. Welcome Back

    We don't know the full circumstances Boyko. I'll take three days without access over three months or even longer any day. I'm just glad it's back!
  8. Welcome Back

    Whoever is responsible for getting things up and running so quick Well Done! I also agree with Ted re explanations plus a plan B to guarantee it doesn't happen again any time soon.

    Yes, I second that. I've got the 1.2 TCE too and I find it's extremely comfortable and a great drive. Welcome to the Forum.

    I don't get this "Connect Button" stuff. I don't have one, have managed to update to and also the latest maps 16.12. The car is only nine months old so I am still getting everything "free" so when it runs out do I miraculously get a connect button on my screen?
  11. Same here Dave, I've never had an issue with it. My first car with auto handbrake and I love it. On the occasions when auto stop isn't available I apply it manually. Driving away has always been problemless. I drove my mate's car the other day which hasn't got this feature and I forgot that I had to manually release the handbrake, stalled it twice.

    Thanks Boyko, mine looks exactly as yours.
  13. R-link 2

    I've just installed the map update and it took about the 35 minutes they said it would. No error messages so I assume everything is ok. I checked if anything had changed but it looked the same. Where does it show the map version? It shows but nowhere can I find V16.12. Also with regard to my previous post about download speed, Boyko had the same problem but the files were 4,659 MB. If Robertp's download took a few minutes were they Zipped, mine weren't.

    It took me at least one and a half hours! No joke. I'm using BT Infinity (supposedly faster than average) but it does tend to slow down when the kids from the local school get home. I'm using a Mac but that shouldn't make all that difference. I'll put it down to the superb British infrastructure (Third World).

    Well I've spent a highly productive (?) afternoon downloading the Maps update from RLink Toolbox. When I took the attached pic I was beginning to lose the will to live. Anyway I'm going to install it (hopefully) after tea. I'll let you know how it goes, it said "allow 30 minutes for installation". Nobody can tell me that this is a good method to get updates. If I get another car you can bet it will have Smartphone mirroring and/or updates direct to the car over wifi. It's like the eighties learning MS-DOS over again.
