  5. Reasons not to buy a Kadjar

    Hi Me tooooooooo👍👍👍👍😀😀😀 JC 😎😎🥃🥃
  6. Hi We had similar on motorway 3 bikes on rack on back of car in front then hey presto all three came off at 70 mph stayed upright and carried on down motorway for 200 mtrs tied together but not to rack ?????? ooooooopppppppppss 🙃😟 JC😎😎🥃🥃
  7. Hi Yes ours is 1.6 4x4 and on a good run with lots of motorway we get middle upper 50’s quite easily best 63 mpg which I think is quite good for a 4x4 hope this helps and yes I would buy same again good car in my opinion JC😎😎🥃🥃
  8. Tonychip

    Hi Yes my point was think you you need all windows to be one touch closing for auto close and kadjar only has this on drivers door again Nissan kit maybe wrong ???! 🙃😟 JC 😎😎🥃🥃
  9. Tonychip

    HI Yes the koleos had auto close on all windows when locking with card or door button but this is down to auto windows not walk away locking and yes this is a very good feature to be honest i cannot recall if megane had this or not ---=only did about 120,000 miles in that one and yes most of down sides are of nissan origin it seems JC
  10. Tonychip

    HI We had a new megane bought in 2004 1.9 dynamique sold in 2009 for a new Koleos top of range model and neither of them had walk away locking here in uk, so not just kadjar it would seem ????????????????? and yes our kadjar was ordered in oct 2015 so is an early one no walk away locking or mirror folding but i did not expect it as it was not on demo that i drove BEFORE purchasing JC
  11. HI Yes I think all UK KADJARS have sat nav and r-link fitted seem to recall this in adds at launch time , our previous car a renault koleos 2009 mark one did not have a nav or a code for radio !!!!! JC
  12. Hi Radio code do kadjars have a radio code??????????🙃🙃🤔🤔 JC 😎😎🥃🥃
  13. Hi YES do not rule out manufacturing issues lots of us who had a shakee ass megane had problems with rear axle alignment ours did only 6000 miles on rear tyres dealer noticed excessive wear to inner half only at 3000 miles fronts did 22,000 after much arguing by dealer renault paid for new rear axle after that it did about 12,000 miles on rear so while not good a lot better as for the junk theory think this would make wheel now that said rear may have hit something hard a kerb- pot hole whatever your problem maybe convincing renault it is not your fault not sure about junk on hub as this would make wheel wobble and i would think you would notice the vibration from this as for steering wheel not being in centre this is just a matter of adjusting track rod ends correctly this does take a while sometimes and if you are not happy take it back and let them have another go , now when you say car is pulling do you mean if you let go of steering wheel it drives to one side or if you hold wheel in centre it drives to one side in which case car is probably ok JC
  14. X2 loud beeps on locking??

    Hi Yes me toooooooooo always wanted a beeeeeeeep !!!!!!!!!!! But with all the problems with these early ones 🙃😟think going to leave it alone 👀 JC 😎😎🥃🥃
  15. X2 loud beeps on locking??

    Hi Yes ours never makes a sound when locking and never has the koleos and Megane we had before kadjar never made a sound either !!!!!!🤔🤔😟 JC. 😎😎🥃🥃
  16. Grinding suspension

    HI YES sounds like a dealer job . Why not try a different dealer if not happy where you have been previously ??????? J C
  17. R-link 2

    Hi Wales how does the DPF work ???????? JC 😎😎🥃🥃
  18. Instrument panel light dims

    Hi Yes ulfire is correct turn lights on to make adjustments should be ok then JC 😎😎🥃🥃
  19. Hi Yes not had this one on ours but do you think it could be rear light cluster seal 🤔🤔 JC. 😎😎🥃🥃
  20. Hi Yes but also you could if you wanted to , add a second 12v battery run side by side wire negative to negative and positive to positive that would give extra capacity I think ??????? Now to starting problem is it not under warranty get it in to a dealer and get it sorted for free seems most sensible to me but hey always was a little slow myself ( not that bright) JC😎😎🥃🥃
  21. Hi. ROXY1234 as you say tread depth in an ideal world best same but also do not forget different tyres / makes have a different rolling radius for same size of tyre that is to say different revolutions per mile so could in theory upset 4x4 but I suspect this was all taken into account on that drawing board , will I think be more of a problem in locked 4x4??? JC😎😎🥃🥃
  22. Hi Yes i know what you mean I to prefer all tyres same on 4 x 4 but in auto back only comes in if front rotation is greater than rear so if front tyre is larger then it will have to slip more for rear to come in if front is smaller then it will in theory cause rear to work sooner maybe all the time now that said what if you use front only for say ten thousand miles now fronts are worn and now smaller so if you engage auto will it do any damage I would not think so , so the answer is no, don’t worry but I would go fo all same when new shoes needed JC😎😎🥃🥃
  23. R-link 2
