  1. Kadjar Facelift 2019

    See what you're saying could end up with the 3 brass monkeys treatment or maybe add a 4th monkey ...see nothing , say nothing , hear nothing and wouldn't do anything about it anyway ....some may say it's already here but I wouldn't dream of it
  2. Kadjar Facelift 2019

    Mitsubishi ? I would have thought the Mazda Sky Activ X would have been a better option
  3. Kadjar Facelift 2019

    I'd read that too . By that time my car will be gone ,most likely me too and maybe all of us . Also The battery technology will have moved on a lot by then . The plug in version of my car presently has a 29 mile EV range , 21 mile increase in 22 years shouldn't be a problem
  4. Kadjar Facelift 2019

    Same here . The Scenic Hybrid Assist did cross my mind even though I'd lost faith in Renault , I really loved my Scenics . My present car is capable of driving in EV only mode for several miles dependant on gradient and engine temperature . I lost about 30 litres of boot space to the Kadjar , which was no problem for my usage . Also , I wasn't totally convinced about the higher driving position on the Kadjar . I find it just as good on a fastback styling as with the Kadjar in fact better for parking , especially with rear camera throughout the range .
  5. Kadjar Facelift 2019

    Not surprised , didn't do enough to convince me ( and many others I suspect )
  6. Kadjar Facelift 2019

    All I can comment on that Ted is that ,in my case , the engine delivers 106 bhp and the electric motor brings it up to 149 bhp when required , So I suppose the answer is yes , as long as as Renault do it properly ( what am I saying )
  7. Kadjar Facelift 2019

    So's global domination by oligarchs ( oh no !!! that's already here )
  8. Is it diesel or petrol ? If diesel it could be a clogged DPF or it could be a false warning . I had a 1.5Dci Scenic which gave me that message . Diagnostics indicated a faulty injector or DPF . I had the injector changed on warranty ( the last day of warranty...phew ) , a month later it came up again . Turned out to be a duff battery , even though it gave no problems starting or driving . Maybe worth having it tested ?
  9. 1.2 TCE EDC

    Fair enough for a diesel , but the OP is driving a 1.2 petrol . Efficient as it is , that's a lot of weight to pull around for that size engine
  10. 1.2 TCE EDC

    Should improve on that journey . The Kadjar is not really a " knock about town " kind of car .
  11. Tried the voting ...didn't work for me
  12. More on the roads

    Yes , my wife made that observation yesterday . I see at least ten every day around my way . Different picture to when I had one 2015-2016 .They were like rocking horse pooh then . And yes, it is a lovely car to drive
  13. Qashqai wheels fitted

    I don't think a TPM emulator would be legal in the UK , instant MOT failure
  14. france

    Nice mod, the cannon ...come in useful up the Gurnos
  15. New Tyres

    Fair enough but they were no problem at all handled as well , if not better , quieter , better ride and better wear than Contis . I understand where you're coming from though
  16. New Tyres

    I had Delinte for £80 a corner . Definitely better value than the Conti's
  17. It powers down with the ignition ..if I remember
  18. AIR CON

    They do tend to mist up easily , I found a dehumidifier best . No creaking and moaning though
  19. How does the lift kit affect future MOTs ?
  20. Rear Parking sensors

    On my SNav the pictures you refer to came up on the display too
  21. I also noticed that whenever i drive through an average speed camera it keeps telling me to "reduce my speed" every 15 seconds even when I have left the motorway and come to a full stop at traffic lights. Haven't they sorted that yet ? I had that problem with mine and I got rid of the car in December 2016 . Also had the same treatment of Renault , numerous " software updates "which fixed nothing along with " we've never heard of that before " Best of luck
  22. LED headlights

    That's why I didn't take the Heads of the Valleys road to Birmingham ...just as well . The mountain roads were closed out of the Rhondda anyway but it only takes 3 or 4 flakes for them to do that these days ....softies
