Just curious, not being rude, but when I first suggested a Note to the wife as she needed new wheels she suggested it was a "granny" car. She changed her mind when she actually saw one in the flesh and then it was the only car she wanted.

Just wondering what ages you have on here. You can lie if you want, I guess, but I'm interested

I'll start: 29

Aye up
I know what you mean, the general age, by my view is, it's an elderly persons motor, by the amount of cars I see, but why should they have all the fun

I'm 44, going on 14

Don't get me wrong, she loves it now! Or at least she did when she went out in it the first time so hopefully she's still keen on it. Practical is what we need so as long as it stays running like I'd hope from a Nissan, we'll be happy.

1st Japanese car (albeit built by Maccums) so hope it does as well as I'd hope after the little Citroen.

59 when I bought mine, having had a 1995 Nissan Sunny beforehand, and that was sooooo reliable.


I saw the Note, liked it and bought it. Looked at Citroen C4........Berlingo, Mitso Colt, Ford Fiesta......but went for the Note. Better spec(not that I wanted all that tech stuff), and never looked back.


My only gripe is that spare wheel.

At least it has one and not a puncture "repair" kit.

Yeah, you're dead right......that would have gone straight in the skip, or on Fleabay.


I bought a proper wheel and tyre.


I've seen the mess they make, when it comes to replace the tyre, and the extra cost.

The Note is the sort of car you buy when "practical" is your first concern. That doesn't happen until you have 3 kids growing up.

I'm 5 (in elephant years)
We also had the 'granny car' and 'shopping trolley' comments from friends until they actually saw it parked in the drive. And when they sat in it there were a few green faces too! The person who made the most disparaging remarks had just ordered a new Golf and was really trying to rub our trunks in it...but when the fabled VW arrived it had NOTHING but a radio/cd in the way of equipment. WHO'S TRUMPETING NOW!
((((((((((((((((((((((((((((oo) AROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

I'm 37, before the Note, I've had any number of different motors over the years. The Note really appealed to me for 1) It's practicality 2) It's fuel economy 3) Nissans bulletproof reliability.It possibly does have an 'older' image, but I personally think the styling is the best of all of its competitors. And in the right colours, looks very trendy. There's a few styling tweaks available too, for those who like to tinker. (Personally I can't leave anything standard!)

I'm in two minds re the spoiler. They are quite subtle, but I do like the cleanliness of the square back end. It reminds me of the wonderful Cube.

Rear spoiler.
.......waste of money, and it just creates more drag, and more places for crap to accumulate.


Not as if the Note will be travelling fast enough to gain any benefits, except maybe to keep the rear window cleaner, but that's what wipers are for.


But, what ever floats peoples boats.
