Having previously owned an X Trail from new I was sure this smaller Note would be as good but if anything it's better. After 2 years 22k miles it looks and drives like new. I look forward to driving it every day as all the technology makes it so easy to drive. Great 1.2 supercharge engine is nippy and it returns mid 50mpg without any problem. The best feature is the cabin size and variable boot as you get a lot space / flexibility when compared to other cars in this price range.
I bought this car on recommendation from a friend and I must say I am very happy with the choice I made. It's reasonably comfortable and very economical on long runs. Engine a bit noisy untill it warms up, apart from that no problems so far - very pleased.
