Nissan qashqai ti is all looks and no performance. Avoid! Avoid! Avoid!
Ok - you want objective and accurate facts? The Nissan Qashqai TI is a vehicle to avoid for many reasons. Yes - it looks wonderful in the driveway, eg: you can reverse out with ease due to the 360 degrees around view monitor, but that's where it loses its edge. While riding fabulously high & up with the big boys, the car's technology is heavy towards being parked or avoiding low-speed collisions. Around town, the CVT motor acts jerkily & is unresolved until above 90 km's. At that point, it transforms into a regal ride, sitting on it's 19 inch a...lloy rims, but I don't spend my life commuting. Not a smooth ride from 20 to 90km's, no refinement in engine control and braking is spongy at best. So, like any female fashion Model showing off a size zero body, it's all looks and no performance when and where you need it - proving that nobody, and especially not a AUD $41,000 SUV like the Nissan Qashqai, can survive on just looks alone!!!!!!!!!!!!!

A dinosaur of a car
I bought a 2015 Nissan qashqai a couple of years ago and as a car it's not bad at all when you look at its entertainment system/Bluetooth system it's antiquated and decades behind its rivals this makes it unsafe as you can't voice dial or answer everything has to be done manually Nissan connect is so bad even Nissan gave up on it and introduced apple car play in its newer models but left the rest of us hanging in the wind
Purchased in August 2015.
A thoroughly adequate car with out being special. Great packaging (though not a "family" car). Good ride and handling.
2019 Qashqai ST, automatic, white. This Qashqai was a long term (six months) work vehicle. Usage was commuting with some other driving, normally with one driver.
Length = 4.39m
Weight = 1376kg
2L 4 cylinder, 106kW (@6,600rpm), 200Nm (@4,400rpm)
The Qashqai is a thoroughly adequate vehicle with good ergonomics and comfort, great packaging, solid ride and handling with few vices. What you see is what you get.

Love my car
I use my car everyday and for camping trips. I wanted a car that is stylish but had the space. I have never had any issues over the 6 years of owing it. The only let down is that the interior door panels have a black seal on them thats peeling. Ive always kept undercover so its not sun damage just wear from opening the door and using the widow buttons.
The only thing that has let me down on this car was the dealership. Bought this car new 2014, Diesel Turbo. Now 165k and only maintenance costs have been battery and tyres. The diesel has more power than the petrol (which I test drove) and runs well around town or country. I'm an hour from Townsville and have towed trailers from Cairns no hassle. Interior still perfect except for door trim.
A great A-B car
I purchased this car in 2017 and use it daily. I've only had one issue - a friction sound from the steering column which, when investigated by Nissan, resulted in the steering column being replaced (free of charge, as the car was still under warranty).
There's no Apple CarPlay or Android Auto in this car, but I don't give two hoots about that.
Overall, this has been a comfortable, reliable car, with a decent amount of space given it's a compact SUV.
The only negative I've found is that it's a bit of a thirsty car - not as economical as some others in its class.
Love the blue
Have purchased my second nissian qausqaui
Had a 2015 Ti , great car sold it after 3 yrs and brought the new stl 2019 model good upgrades, less road noise with this later model

Don’t be fooled. Car purchased in 2015 from Liverpool Nissan NSW. Used for work commute and weekend travel - 200kms give and take so regular services done. 160k on the clock. Within 4.5 years I have replaced 4 batteries - only 1 replaced under warranty as it was within the year of purchase. Transmission replaced, fan belt replaced, intercooler replacement, pipe that connects to turbo replaced, moon roof second time replaced due to material not rolling back smoothly. First time warranty second time out of pocket. Centre console light bulb blown,...seat clippings continuously coming undone. Close to 12k repairs paid on car to date. Current dispute with Nissan Australia. Clearly I’ve been sold a Lemon. I was told battery replacements were caused from the stop start feature. Why have a feature that doesn’t support the product. I always turn that feature off anyhow. Chullora Sutton’s wanted to charge me $529 for a battery. $286 for diagnostic testing, only to be told the day before collection that needed a new alternator and a new battery. I thought a car is thoroughly checked during diagnostics not after the turbo pipe was replaced. DO NOT BUY A NISSAN UNLESS YOU WANT THEM TO KNOW YOU BY FIRST NAME BASIS HENCE THE ANOUNT OF REPAIRS.
Great car for small family. Has Isofix for baby seat. Nice and sleek interior and exterior. Spacious boot. Great value for money. Good safety features and driving aids. Highly recommend this suv.
Love the car hate the GPS ALMOST USELESS
Bought Qashqui STL in Dec 2019 from Total Nissan in Perth. Excellent service delivered to my door on time with full tank of fuel. Have since driven from Perth to Cairns no problems at all, EXCEPT the GPS is a real low end Bosch product and is very annoying as it call the exits too late, doesn’t always direct the quickest way when compared to using Google maps at the same time! Have spoken to Nissan who upgraded the GPS with latest version software but still same problems. Great car but the GPS is very so so in my opinion. I’ve driven and owned a few cars with GPS and this is disappointing as I specially wanted the GPS so went for the STL model. Just wanted to share my experience with others.
Started off well, but problems starting to show
Bought the car new in 2017, it's auto, petrol and currently has done about 100k. Still gets great mileage, is nice to drive and size wise suits us. However, within the last 12 months, things are going wrong. The film/skin on the front door handles is peeling off, brake warning light comes on and in some cases the rear brakes lock on. A second warning light has started flashing and the vehicle has now started stalling (twice in a month).
Apparently the door film/skin is due to contaminants such as sunscreen or moisturiser being applied to it (s...

I have had this car for four years and have managed a whopping 186k on the clock. I"ve done a few inter-state trips with family. I will start with the negative points that I can say about this car.
1. Turbo lag. Being the 1.6 turbo diesel there is a little lag from take off. Once you hit over 2000rpm it takes off super quick, but may take a full second to do so. Once you get used to it, you can manage quite easily as you know how your car will respond.
2. Hard Seats. The seats are hard. Not uncomfortable. Just hard. The front passenger seat s...

I have the TS diesel model in manual and bought it new in 2013. The only issue was the battery would die randomly but after 3 batteries we bought a small truck battery that fixed the issue. I have done 130K and it has never missed a beat. Not had to replace the clutch as someone else mentioned so i was puzzled at that.
We would buy another what is now a qashqai as this has been almost faultless. The car is now showing its age. The trim on the door handles has peeled, some plastic trim rattles but nothing else is broken. A great reliable car.
We have recently purchased a 2016 TI Qashqai after driving a Toyota Aurion for the past 3years and are thrilled with our new vehicle.The Aurion has been a great drive but being of the older generation we needed a more practical vehicle.Nissan Aspley were really good to deal with, the Qashqai is quiet,easy to drive,powerful enough,well appointed and economical so it has been a great choice so far.

Love my Ti
Car is amazing to drive. Loads of extras and smart features for a car in this price range. Loads of room for the kids. Boot is spacious. Love the glass panoramic roof option also.
Nice small SUV
Bought this car for my wife a month ago and it has been going very well. Good points are
1. Nice sporty design
2. 360 degrees camera is a fantastic feature-helps with parking
3. Great value for a car of this size 4.4m which translates into space all round
4. CVT drives smoothly and is great for fuel economy
5. 2.0L normally aspirated engine has more than enough shove
6. For a car costing $30,000 it comes with electronic parking brakes, Lane departure warning, autonomous stopping and push button start and GPS which is great
7. Love the DRLs and LED tail gate
8. Electronic power steering is well weighted but not razor sharp
9. 5 year warranty and 3 years free servicing is a bonus ...
Good build quality, some poor design choices.
My partner purchased a midnight blue 2013 Dualis (second hand, near new from a dealership) last year, while it is a well put together car it suffers from a number of design flaws.
1.) The CVT (constant velocity transmission) while a good idea in theory, means that the car accelerates slowly and uses a massive amount of fuel when under load (going up hills, towing etc.)
This is so chronic that is possible to watch the DTE (Distance 'till empty) counter shows we lose about 4km of range each time we go up the short (50m?) hill to our home.
The C...VT also requires specialist transmission oil which may not be easily available everywhere. 2.) The rear seats are no capsule base friendly due to the angle of the seat, we had a nightmare of a time trying to get a near top of the line capsule base to fit this car, ended up giving up and fitting it to an older 1997 dual cab Hilux. (not ideal I know) 3.) This one is more about cars of today than the Dualis specifically, but it has a crazy amount of black plastic on the outside of the car, meaning that machine washing won't really cut it and every wash means at least an hour with Armor All or similar product to prevent fading. (our 2013 model still looks a bit tired despite my best care efforts)

Love my Nissan Qashqai TI
I love love love my Nissan Qashqai TI which I bought in 2015 after doing extensive research on Small/Med SUVs. Found this car to have most if not all features like a luxury car but with a good price tag. Its been 4 years but my car is like new and haven't had any serious problem. I use to drive to and from work and for school pick ups. I am not changing anytime soon :D
Best car for daily use
Nissan Qashqai is the best car for daily use. Comparing with all other medium suv you love it’s safty features. We bought this car after my wife did a very bad car accident.

Hi guys, has anyone else had any of the following issues with their qashqai 2015 diesel?
- 4 battery replacements
- automatic transmission replaced
- fan belt x 2 replacements
- egr valve
- inner console illuminating lights blown

All replaced things listed have been placed (egr valve pending). Oh and check your mud flap front drivers side and fell me it’s still in tact and the bolts haven’t come undone from that guard? Because mine has and I’ve seen 2 other qashqai driving around with the same issue.
