The Review

About me: Own this model since November 2015. My previous car was Civic 1.8M (2006). I'm a car enthusiast. Engine: Very refined. I can easily rev it to the red line, yet with controlled engined noise. Performance: May not pick up as fast as the Civic but decent enough if you push it harder. At slow traffic, it is better to use the S-mode. It is more stable than the Civic at high speed as it is a heavier car. Despite its large mass, it picks up speed better than the Altis. Body: Body is quite solid. Hardly get any "pimples" on the doors. Very spacious. Very good sound proofing. Fuel economy: For city driving, it can go as low as 8 km per litre. At highway, I could get as high as 17.4 km per litre (at 90 km per hour). Combined, I get 10.5 km per litre.

The Review

I was thinking if I would regret buying the 1.2l Turbocharged Qashqai. I read some negative, mainly local, reviews that there is loss of power for the 1.2l turbocharged version. But this is very contrary to many positive reviews from the Ang Mo reviews from UK. So I decided to buy the 1.2l Turbocharged version after test drove in Leng Kee. No regrets. I would say the torque is adequate albeit not something you expect from WRX or Volvo turbo engines. Overtaking on the road is good. Don't really need to be worried that it does not has the torque and speed. It does. Max torque comes at 1750rpm which is something you will need to hit before overtaking anyway. The Auto Start Stop feature is something I am still getting used to. I probably will disable this feature. It is useful for saving some fuel while cutting off the engine at stop lines or traffic junctions. But how much fuel can you save. I like the map navi that comes with the car. Very quick for signal to pick up. Also the gadgets are plentiful to keep you interested in how to optimise these features. Interior wise, I like the dash quality. Really premium feel. Especially the dashboard, it looks and feels fantastic. I would say most of the Crossovers from the same category lag behind the Qashqai. The front seats are comfortable and spacious. The seats behind are tight and legroom seems to be smaller than the stated 1646mm. Exterior wise, I think it is quite subjective otherwise I thought it looks muscular especially the waves on bonnet feel especially good in black colour.

The Review

I have driven this car for 9yr 11 month, I will be scrapping it next month because I do not think it will survive a COE renewal as it has already done me excellent service of 210,000km. 1. It is reliable and dependable. The only period I had problem was 140k km to 170k km span. During that drive period, the air-con compressor, the condenser fan, timing belt bearing, vacuum tube leak and wheel bearings failed. I changed all those parts with brand new parts (together with radiator fan, just in case), and it has provided me with immaculate service since then. 2. Excellent Fuel consumption. I travel 60HW/40city. The car started at 14.7km/l, and is currently serving me at 13km/l. It is much more efficient using RON98 then RON95, so the efficiency on RON98 used to more than offset the higher cost. 3. Roadholding, acceleration are all excellent for a 1.5L car. I used to drive a turbo charged fiat punto gt, and the last car before my airwave was a civic ek3. All faster car then the Airwave, but still I think airwave performs respectably. 4. The only weakness I found is the noise. It started off not too quiet, but over the years its gone louder. Changing of worn wheel bearing helped a lot. Most of the noise is from the wheel hub, and bearings. But it will slowly creep back. 5. Other concerns are. The CVT must have oil changed earlier then the manual states, I always change 10k km earlier. Also have the CTV fluid flushed. Do not jerk the accelerator, a lesson I learnt in my civic ek3. Do all this and it will provide excellent service. 6. If you experience sensor issue with idling, it is because of air leak in the vacuum tube. This is a hard problem to solve as it is not easily diagnosed. 7. If immobiliser prevents car from starting, which sometimes, though rarely occurs, shift and shake the gear shift and try again. It appears the car may have not done a recalled to do a change of cables, the failure of some parallel importers. If there are low mileage Airwave, its a good consideration for 5yrs COE renewal if you are on a budget. It has done me good service, and that's why I am doing this review for all...Tomorrow I will be driving a new car.
