Thanks guys it was first registered in March 

as long as the wife can stream her music she will be happy 

The difference in quality between bluetooth streaming and cable attached streaming is quite significant even for people with hearing disabilities. Hope you won't regret it afterwords, having in mind the year old delay in map updates. With Android Auto/ AppleCarPlay you wouldn't bother at all...

Well, if you put it that way, you're right. I'm constantly using Spotify and that's why it really matters to me, though I also have USB stick always in. At least it's a reason to negotiate price ;)

Sounds like you should be taking it straight back to the dealer

It’s going in on Monday they asked me to take in on the 19th I laughed and told them I would drop it off Monday and collect my refund

apart from the issues it seems to be a lovely car and I’m very surprised with the 1.2 engine 👍

Interesting, I can see you posted before you even got the car so that rules you out of the "he only joined to complain" faction. People do sometimes assume that.

You seem to be another of the not 100% happy section, way too many in my mind. Give them as short a time as possible and be certain you raise the "I want to reject this car" banner.

By the way most people are more than happy with their choice, trouble is to many badly presented cars coming through.

Well, only the fuel cap is a new thing. Everything else is long discussed in the forum. (Though my cap froze once in a cold weather and it was a struggle open it up. Still free from the other problems. Only my steering creeks when steering in place to the right and when cold).

I never joined to slate the car 

just to see what other people make of them 

and get some ideas of what people are doing 

see I can leave cars alone 

when these issues are fixed I will be 100% happy with it 

this is the wife’s car 

these are my toys

Didn't mean to suggest that you were slating the car . My Kadjar was sound mechanically , no issues at all . I just thought it best take the car taken to the dealer to have your issues logged and rectified at Renault's expense not yours . If you're happy to do that , all well and good :)

Ulfire never suggested you did. Maybe you got crossed with my post saying YOU DIDN'T join to "slate" the car??

 

Plus if we are all bragging this was my car; Now in a museum in Hollandimage.thumb.png.9f607c303c458163911c4c4527c38806.png
