  1. Low MPG vs Advertised on 1.2 TCE

    Hi. I got my 1.2 Kadjar sig nav on 30th September and have already covered 11000 miles! Have just completed my longest trip so far - Inverness to Birmingham 443 miles at an indicated 38.1mpg. That’s about the best I have ever achieved, round town is closer to 30mpg. Nowhere near the figures quoted by salesman (high 40’s ha ha) but it is a really enjoyable drive, very comfortable and so far everything works as it should!
  2. 1.6 or 1.2 Tce Signature S Cosmos Blue

    As someone who came from a 2.0 BMW diesel to the 1.2 Petrol Signature I was very doubtful as to how I would get on. However, I really enjoy the engine - it has plenty of power when you need it, and I had forgotten how quiet and smooth a Petrol motor is to drive. You do have to use the gears more to get the best out of it, and Ted is quite right when he says that diesel is a lazier drive, but I’m quite enjoying the difference. Only thing is the fuel consumption is horrendous - 37 or 38 at best on a long run, and 29 around town.
  3. Walk away door locking

    And I like it too!
  4. Hi. You must have CarPlay enabled on your iPhone, and you must connect your phone to the car via one of the USB ports. CarPlay should then appear at the bottom of your screen - touch that and you’re in👍
  5. As a very new owner (picked car up 3 weeks ago and have done 1500 miles) I must agree with you about the fuelling system. Every time I have put fuel in I find myself standing by the flap trying to open it then remembering I haven’t pulled the little flappy thing inside! Then takes what seems like ages to unscrew the very cheap feeling filler cap! However that is so far the only minor annoyance compared to so many positives. The looks (in glorious red), the way it drives, the pano roof, flawless keyless entry and exit and dare I say it the so far faultless performance of Rlink and Apple CarPlay have really made it a pleasure to get in and drive. Long may it continue😁

    Well, the day finally arrived and I picked up the car this morning. First impressions - delighted with the way it drives and best of all no problems with pairing my iPhone at all! Makes calls, plays Spotify over Bluetooth and disconnects and reconnects every time (so far).🤗. Will give a bigger and better report over the coming days, but meantime if anyone has any questions fire away!

    Car has arrived at dealers and I’m picking it up on Saturday morning. Really looking forward to getting to know the car. First problem I can foresee is when the sales guy tries to pair my phone to rlink - I have an iPhone running iOS 11🙁!

    Another update today. Car has been built and left the factory😀. Now waiting to be put on a ship to Southampton. It's getting closer!🤗
  9. Spotted two poo colour kadjars

    Had an update from the dealer today. Apparently system is showing car due to leave the factory on 1st September. Any idea how long it takes from factory to dealer?

    Hi Marc, how are you finding the petrol engine? That was my only worry after coming from 10 years of diesel cars. How's the power and mpg?

    Thanks guys, look forward to learning lots of useful stuff from the forum while waiting for my car to arrive. Could have had one next week if I chose black (had a black car before, never again!) or blue, but just think it looks its best in red😀

    Hi. Rather than start a new topic thought I would join in this one, as I too have just ordered a Kadjar Signature nav 130 petrol, also expected delivery date 27th September! Mine is a red one though😁. They must be getting built and leaving the factory at the same time🤗
