  1. Engine Failure hazard

    So what happened to the timing chain, this is surely not normal by any standards?
  2. Engine Failure hazard

    Only 15 000km and a timing chain replacement already? Did you perhaps mean to write 150 000km?
  3. Reasons to get a new Kadjar

    I am positive the seats are fake leather (vinyl). British cars have a much longer and stronger tradition of leather seats in cars than Swedish cars, and I believe they think vinyl will have to do for us.
  4. Reasons to get a new Kadjar

    I don't think the seats are the same in the Kadjar as in the QQ. But the seat heating is certainly not very good in the Kadjar leather (vinyl?) seats. I have not felt this slow seat heating in any other car, and then all cars have heated seats here in Sweden.
  5. LED headlights

    There is not a big problem with snow, but the salted winter roads really make dirt cover the headlights until they burn like a faint candle. I was a little woried myself when I bought the car with LED headlights, but it's usually fine. But I have the headligt cleaner also. The heated windscreen on the other hand gave me a positive surprise of how efficient it is. It's nothing like a slow rear window demister at all, it heats away hard ice in a minute or two and you can then just wipe it off with no effort. I believe all cars in Sweden are sold with high pressure headlight washers, be it H4, H7, Xenon or LED, as well as heated front seats. And winter tyres are mandantory during winter. And all who have access to an electric outlet close where they park have a block heater installled as well.
  6. It could be that a rear light rubber gasket is not seated right.
  7. Here I found a short description of DRL history: https://www.motorists.org/issues/dlr/history/
  8. Reasons not to buy a Kadjar

    The lack of 4wd together with automatic transmission is a strange decision. Toyota RAW 4, Subaru Forester, Ford Kuga, Mazda CX-5, Honda CR-V, KIA Sportage, Mitsubishi Outlander, and a lot of others all give you the possibility to combine 4wd with automatic transmission. What's the problem with the QQ/Kadjar powerline that prevents this?
  9. Crome grill

    I think the chrome grill looks just fine.
  10. Roof bars

    I have the Thule bars. They are fine too. They can be placed more freely lengthwise than the original, that I believe must align with the holes on the inside of the railings.
  11. Qashqai Convert

    I believe it's the Qasqai +2 (7-seater) that has the proper 17" spacesaver, not just any Mk2.
  12. Automatic headlights

    I would say that's not a solution, but a work-around.
  13. Automatic headlights

    My main complaint with the automatic headlights is that they do not light up the mmain beams until 30 mph/45kmph. I want full light even when driving on narrow and winding forest roads to properly see the moose and deer that lurks in the dark, and 20 mph/30kmph would be more suitable. I guess there is no way to get this, without a major update release of the car software?
  14. Latest map update

    Could you do it while driving the car?

    I believe the infamous high front wing edges is part of the good side wind handling, together with the integrated roof rails, they break the side winds without creating lift. The Edgy Renault 16 from the 60's did the same thing with the sharp front wing edges and the recessed bonnet center, and it also had the raised edges along the roof sides. And, it went straight like an arrow through heavy side winds.
