  1. Split leather on drivers seat

    Hi Folks, update so far. My car went for its second service yesterday and to be fair to Renault they are going to replace the leather seat cover, apparently the sides are reinforced leather. I still think it’s vinyl... either way they have ordered the parts. They are replacing both headlights. They say this is a first and they’ve ever seen this, I get the impression that people are just accepting it as the norm and not reporting the misting/staining of the lense. They did say that the headlights need to be ventilated as they get hot... do LEDs really get hot? I’m not too concerned as they are replacing the lights 🙂 The reversing camera is being replaced as it flickers after driving in the rain. prior to taking it for a service I did photograph and document all the faults and emailed them to the dealer including Renault UK who called me back to discuss the issues, they also contacted the dealer prior to the car going in making them aware of the issues. The seat cover is on back order so I imagine it could take several weeks for that to arrive. All in all so far so good! 🙂
  2. Hi, my 1.5 auto is going on for a service later this month, it’s part of the pre paid service package. When booking I’ve been asked if I’d like the engine cleaning out for an additional £29.99... is this required/worth it? The car has only done 14000 miles.
  3. I have the auto and don’t have any issues with reversing lag, the only problem I seem to get is an occasional grating noise when it changes from 1st to 2nd gear...
  4. Hi, does anyone else find that when you start your engine you get a loud beeping coming from the engine compartment? It very rarely happens but when it does it’s really loud and lasts about 5 seconds. Usually late at night 😂

    Thanks for that 🙂 hopefully mine will be also. I can stop worrying about it for now. I will let you know how I get on. Cheers
  6. Split leather on drivers seat

    I paid a lot of extra money for leather seats so if there not leather side panels I will be asking questions! When I sit on the seat it’s split on the exact crease. I don’t see how anything sharp could of ever split it... I’m furious with certain parts of the Kadjar in terms of quality. If the things I’ve listed are not covered under warranty I may actually do my own Kadjar YouTube review on my personal experiences with the Kadjar. Such a shame as it’s a lovely looking car.

    I also have this problem, i just noticed it yesterday, i have the s nav bose edition and paid extra for the leather seats. So along with this, the headlights misting up and staining the inside of the fitting, reversing camera working when it wants to and sensors having a lag my second service next month will be fun! The car has only done 13500 miles! Hopefully you can see some pics attached.
  8. Disappointed so far, anyone got similar issues.

    Hi, are you asking about the initial start of the thread? If so the dealer bought back the car no issues, Renault UK apologised and was give £1000 towards a new Renault. I bought a new Kadjar SNav auto via good deal Flame Red. The only issues I've had are with the Rlink2. The car is fine just not as refined advice it could be, some switches are in very strange places, i.e. Cruise/speed control heated seats... I love the car it's really practical and I enjoy driving it. If I was to buy again with hindsight I would probably consider a Kia Sportage. Hope this answers your question? 🙂
  9. 8 weeks in and no complaints from me ☺☺

    That's very tight parking! Almost a handbrake 180 degree job! Them we're the days lol [emoji23] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Hi have you swapped your wheels for 17"? I'm thinking about it as the tyres are cheaper and looking for added comfort over the worst roads in the U.K. Warwickshire! I too have the Bose edition great car but lacks a little refinement compared to my previous Kia Optima. If I was to buy again I'd consider the new Kia Sportage but price for price you get a lot more with Renault. I have the auto diesel with real leather heated seats and it's great. Just some silly items missing which some I believe have now been addressed by Renault, Interior glove light box, illuminated buttons, auto fold wing mirrors. Bose Sound system is OK nothing to get excited about nothing compared to Bose products in the home... I've also purchased a spare wheel & Jack. Overall I'd give our Bose edition S Nav Flame Red 8/10 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Oil levels

    Hi, it's a combination fill and dip if you open the the yellow fill point where you add oil you will find attached the dip stick [emoji594][emoji846] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Thanks very much for the colour code for my Renault kadjar in cosmos blue it will save me a lot of time .Do you have any idea who stocks the correct paint for the Kadjar or scratch repair kits Best regards Stephen

  13. Tyres

    Thanks I thought that... I was just curious as fat tyres are cheaper and was hoping for more of a soft ride, I'm considering buying some 17" alloys I know there not as pretty as the Bose edition but I'm thinking of my comfort and long term spend on tyres.

  14. Tyres

    Hi, I'm not mechanically car minded at all unlike some of you so I thought I'd ask. I have the 19" wheels with a 225/45/19 profile... do you think 225/55/19 would work or perhaps rub the underside of the vehicle, or worse make the vehicle unstable? Thanks Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
