    Have you had any problems with the car?

    I do now regret buying it and would SERIOUSLY warn others from buying one of these due to a desgn fault that Nissan will not rectify. Basically the pipes that run to the rear heater are badly positioned and corrode through allowing coolant to drain out. To replace the pipes it is necessary to remove the body from the chassis which I find totally ridiculous! Price to repair £1,750 plus!!!!!!! My T-Spec has done less than 50,000 miles and to face a bill like that is ludicrous. The pipes run from the front bulkhead right to the rear of the car in one piece so it is not possible to replace just the rotten section. To check it on your car take off the rear offside wheel and you will see the two aluminium pipes tucked up under the suspension mounting bracket.

    What's most practical about your car?

    It is a good sized vehicle and fairly economical. I wanted it as an upgrade from my Terrano to tow a fair sized trailer which it does reasonably well.

    Favourite gadget, option or accessory?

    The rear camera is handy when reversin up to the trailer.
