Cars seem to be getting bigger and wider all the time .
You are right they are definitely more economical we have been very pleased with our car .
The only drawback is that it is a diesel which I supose makes it worthless now .
No matter we shall keep it till its end .
I don't like range rovers because they have that 'roll 'feeling .
I always have the feeling they will roll over !
And they are also Automatic!.....

I would imagine that you get a lot more MPG with the diesel, my petrol version does approx 26mpg and about 31mpg on motorway runs. As you say though, they are very high off the ground and great for getting through floods let alone snow.

Yep! Then I wouldn't have such trouble finding a new one!

I average 50mpg in my 2 litre Nissan Qashqai Muddy, and like all diesels, servicing is a cinch. It'll even run on 'chip fat' ...

That would be a dream for me. They are very heavy cars though aren't they and very comfortable on long runs.

My Qashqai is the two wheel drive version Longdogs, I understand the four wheel drive version is hard on tyres, and at over one hundred quid a piece I'd like them to last as long as possible. Also, because I never have had the need for 4WD - I only drive on roads and don't go out if it's deep in snow - I've never found a problem with 2WD.

I occasionally go long distance, mainly on motorway, and I have achieved 55mpg on some long runs. I'd certainly have another Qashqai when this one gives up the ghost, provided I haven't gone first......

They are good looking cars. I almost got one once but really wanted the 4 wheel drive version. I seem to remember it's a x2 which can be changed to x4 but yes, I do remember reviews on tyre wear which also put me off.
