Although we have only had the Qashqai for a week we have discovered an issue with the throttle and engine pick up.
When pulling away, if you press the throttle slowly to get a slowish pull away then nothing much happens for a short while. Then, all of a sudden, the engine picks up and the car has a little surge forward.
It certainly isn’t dangerous but it is very disconcerting especially if you want a pull out into a gap… for a short while you feel like noting is happening!
The dealer is looking at it tomorrow. They thing there is a software fix.
More when I get back.
