  1. HI Just had 4 new tyres fitted on 4x4 KADJAR 1.6mm left on both rears and 2mm left on both fronts all 4 original contnentals and have been moved front to back think about 9000 miles 16520 miles on clock now which considering i drive slow and smooth this i think is not good last car did 40,000 on 4 again a 4x4 (renault koleos ) now point of this post only done a bit of local driving BUT the new shoes are in my opinion lots quieter at 40 mph with window open than continentals with window closed much much less noise new tyres have a B rating for economy and a B for wet grip and 68 dB noise tyres fitted ROADSTONE EUROVIS SPORT 04 225/45ZR 19 96 W extra load paid £100 each will post on wear and motorway speed noise levels JC
  2. HI Ours is 1.6 4x4 March 2016 and YES it does have eco mode switch below steering wheel right hand side ( RHD car ) and yes comes up eco on dash when in eco bottom right on ours but this may vary as to which dash screen you are using as to the possible slight hesitation i find ours fine WITHOHT eco but yes maybe a little hesitant when in eco at very low revs to be honest i never use eco but thats just a personnel thing J C
  3. Hi Your welcome 👍 hope you get sorted soon JC 😎😎🥃🥃
  4. Hi Yes true RAC do this for Renault I believe should be a sticker on car with TEL number ours is on screen but suppose up to dealer as to where to put it. tel 08000858005 or 03332023005 think both free phone good luck JC 😎😎🥃🥃 MPs think you will just need reg number when calling
  5. DRIVING ON THE CONTINENT

    Hi Maybe depends which lights you have on your vehicle ??? 🤔 JC 😎😎🥃🥃
  6. Hi Yes as I say bump start go to work and then call assist may fix at work or take to dealer for you??? JC 😎😎🥃🥃
  7. Hi Is clicking sound near glove box or could it be from under bonnet 🤔🤔 might be worth checking battery leads 🤔🤔. are tight but dealer for you if leads are tight warranty job me thinks recovery worth a try might get quick fix while your at work????? good luck JC 😎😎🥃🥃
  8. Engine temperature gauge

    Hi Yes diesels take a while to warm up and cool down quite quick to as not reving as fast as petrol also in cold weather most of us have heater on which cools engine even more as cold air coming in to car takes more heating but that said if driving at say 60 mph plus on motorway I would expect four bars or middle of range on gauge I am talking uk here suppose in colder climes it could be lower🤔🤔 JC 😎😎🥃🥃
  9. Diesel or Petrol

    Hi I have to I am not sure about this particulate thing but something for all to think about in2009 I bought a koleos 2 litre 150 bhp engine now this needed to be driven at a constant speed for as long as it took to clean the filter think I did this once maybe twice in six years and 90 + thousand miles no problem really now if I had bought same car with 2 litre 175 bhp engine it cleaned the filter as you drove in any situation no need to drive at a constant speed and both of these were renault so maybe saying Nissan has x is maybe not so relevant , maybe we all need to try and find out what system is fitted to which KADJAR as if my previous experience with koleos is correct 1.5 and 1.6 KADJAR may well have a different system just had a thought has any body looked in the hand book ???? JC. 😎😎🥃🥃
  10. Diesel or Petrol

    Hi Yes ours is 1.6 4x4 particulate filter on ours just cleans it self when needed at idle in traffic town driving motorway makes no difference don't worry about it. We had a koleos it needed a constant speed for 10 20 mins or so JC😎😎🥃🥃 Ps. stevieboy I would try another dealer if you can't get a sensible true answer from yours 🤔
  11. Hi Yes once or twice ours has not worked as should new batteries in remote solved it for us seems to be quite fussy about batteries cheap ones are useless for some reason , fit Duracell to be sure and don't forget , switch or similar parts WILL be under warranty 🤔 JC 😎😎🥃🥃
  12. Kadjar 4WD owners

    Hi How long is long term we had a koleos New in2009 did just under 100,000 miles in 4x4 no problems but remember 4x4 is not permanently engaged only comes in when front wheels rotate faster than rear that is in auto , in lock it is what it says 4x4 50% front 50% rear but above about 20 mph it unlocks and returns to auto mode 😀 JC😎😎🥃🥃
  13. Hi tempus what , what does that mean??? sorry have not mastered my native English yet only 66 so may have time , or maybe not , time is running out perhaps time for a brandy me thinks😀😀😀 JC. 😎😎🥃🥃
  14. Hi Maybe maybe not 🤔 JC 😎😎🥃🥃
  15. Hi Here here I thought it was a KADJAR forum🤔😀😀👀🙃😇 JC😎😎🥃🥃

Hi RTFishall Yes long warranty is good but don't forget fair wear and tear is not covered 😟battery is two years 😯etc etc etc 🤔few unhappy owners out there with regards to warranty check mrs google out looks like its not a full seven years more like three perhaps mileage etc 🤔🤔 All is not always greener may well be different if you own 😯 JC😎😎🥃🥃
  17. Kadjar 4WD owners

    Hi Yes Lower mpg maybe down to driver style but as I said above that extra diff / drive train takes energy to turn it energy is fuel renault states a different mpg (lower) for 4x4 version all part of the joy nothing is free but 4 wheel drive has the odd really good moments like when I just drove down to daughters house in snow when a Mercedes was trying to get up the hill 20 mins later I drove up hill no problem he was still trying to get up the hill and on to main road JC 😎😎🥃🥃
  18. Kadjar 4WD owners

    Hi I have not checked mpg in 2 wheel drive as I don't think there will be any difference auto is in effect on demand 4x4 so only kicks in when front wheels are moving faster than rear added to this weight and drag are the issue when it comes to mpg Yes 4x4 is heavier and matters not if in 4 or 2 wheel drive it has more drag as when moving it has a second differential at back which turns when moving now using 4x4 energy from engine will be used in 2 wd diff turns from rotation of rear wheels which in turn are powered from engine so little or no change in mpg I think🤔🤔 JC 😎😎🥃🥃
  19. Kadjar 4WD owners

    Hi Yes agree completely in auto 4x4 is there if you need it 😀😀 JC 😎😎🥃🥃
  20. HI But is that not the one with steamed up headlights ????? JC
  21. Hi Yes ours got some marks from wire to coffee cup not good but hey rest of it is ok ( except map thing) nothing is perfect 🤔🤔 except me of course 😇😇 JC 😎😎🥃🥃
  22. Kadjar steering wheel not centered

    Hi Ours is dead centre as it should be and yours should be also back to dealer me thinks for you good luck JC 😎😎🥃🥃
  23. Signature S nav or Dynamique S Nav

    Hi Yes tend to agree with Johnbridge bit more cash but will you regret not getting sig spec later I got a koleos in 2009 dynamic s always regretted not getting the privilege JC 😎😎🥃🥃
  24. Hi Yes you may be surprised how many being broken , may be worth a look 👀 on eBay 🤔few on there.👀👍 JC. 😎😎🥃🥃
  25. Hi For none bose ones full size spare if price ok should fit in boot I think as Renault do sell them you will need correct size to suit your tyre size .May be worth trying to get hands on a 5th matching alloy .Space saver fine but restricted on speed you should drive and only to get you home.Thats my thoughts on subject hope it helps JC. 😎😎🥃🥃
