You are correct Sineu.Is it just me or do the amount of posts and visits seem to have fallen off a cliff just lately ?
A lot of people are like this not just on forums but in life in general. Critics love to attack things they have no first hand experience of.Must admit I was a tad taken aback with the negative comments about the E12 when I joined the forum, to the extent that, IIRC, I asked how many critics had actually owned one, or at least had first hand experience of the model.
But I guess many comments on any forum are driven as much by opinion as fact, so we are just continuing to enjoy Mrs B's rubber-band driven DIS-G powered auto E12. (But obviously having it regularly serviced!)
Well said that man. Our E12 was an excellent car, in some ways better than than the Fabia that replaced it, in some ways inferior but everything is a compromise and it was a good compromise.Some E11 owners might just find themselves surprised if they drove an E12.
Nissan dropped it due to poor sales, but in actual fact they are good reliable cars... The proof of that is here to see on the forum with no serious problems as such, just little niggles, and of course the connect radio unit for a few unlucky owners.
We really liked ours and other than the anti roll bar bushes it was trouble free.I never understood the hate for the E12 either. It was just as practical, high up etc. as the E11, but the tech was more swish and it was a little more fuel efficient
We sold ours because as the MIL became less able to move easily she found the higher seating position made getting into the car very difficult. Shows that a high car is not what every wheel chair user needs. After much searching we bought a Skoda Fabia 1.0 TSi 110 PS in SE-L trim. Faster than the Note DIG-S so we are happy, fule economy is very similar (has averaged 49 mpg) so we are happy again and with a height adjustable passenger seat (standard) the MIL can get in easily. The boot is a bit smaller but unlike some other cars we looked at it is still possible to get the wheelchair in standing upright with space for shopping etc.I only sold it as I wanted something a bit bigger to use as a support vehicle for my fleet of classic cars.
