Re: Grand Scenic discounts

Sorry I've got no idea with regard to your questions above, however I've just found this by the man himself Honest John

The Nissan Qashqai has the same excellent Renault 1.6DCI 130 engine on which no problems reported at all. Renault did not fit its EDC twin clutch box to this engine because it could not take the torque. The new Qashqai has an entirely different CVT transmission, well proven in the previous Qashqai and Juke.
From Honest John to me that's praise indeed, he was absolutely bitterly against Renaults 2.2 dCi engines well no, not so much the engines as what he called the completely insane service schedule 18,000 mile oil changes which are totally mad.

IMO 6000 miles is more sensible with the a diesel engine produces
