Pre 2021 cars suffer from external water leaks and the stop start electronic system is known to cause concerns but like everything mass produced issues are hit and miss.

As long as you've got good dealer support I dont think youd be disappointed with one. They are extremely popular so that says quite alot.

N-tec specs are pretty high with lots of good kit

As much as I'd love you to stay with the blue oval Mick, the eco-sport is the easiest ford to nick, my dads got done in 12 secs!! The Kuga is extremely expensive to match the spec of a good Qashqai

One of the most polluting cars in existence.

Admittedly, that's a diesel, but still, not a car that I would consider in any circumstances. YMMV (probably will  :D ).

Have you considered the peugeot 3008 ?

My wife has one - it's a very nice car and it only has 3 cylinders so you reduce your exhaust emissions by 25%  :)

Being made in Sunderland you'd think they know about leaks.
Yeah - the N-Tec looks good. Thanks

Comfort mainly. It'll be nice to climb into a car rather than curl myself down into a car.

I've suffered and heard many issues with Poojots in the past. They look OK but build quality was a tad suspect but that was a few years ago.

Thanks for the replies so far.

Can't you trade in your sister and keep your Siesta? I would recommend a Kuga (I have 1) but as someone else said, they're not cheap. Mine is 5.5 years old with 21,000 on the clock. Similar cars but with higher mileage are listed at around £13000 which is more than I paid 4 years ago  :D

I've always hankered after a Cupra Formentor. The VW T-Roc is also a cracker (my physiotherapist drives one).
Don't know where they sit in your budget. You won't be able to afford my physiotherapist, but her car is awesome.

KIAs warranty is the business, never had an isuue getting a repir done.
A mate of mine works in an office which was pre covid full of mummys doing school runs. He always comments when he sees a Qashqai that a lot of people bought/leased one but not a second one!

Have you and a look at Skodas? I have a Kodiaq and it's an absolutely fantastic car. They also have a Karoq which is similar but a touch smaller. The Kodiaq is a really nice drive and a comfortable place to be.

I run a 61 plate Kia Sorento, so a bit larger than the Sportage.  Wonderful car, does whatever I ask of it.  Very reliable, the diesel engine has useful power, and of course the exhibition layout or my drum kit all fits in the back with room to spare:)     I bought it from new after having had a couple of Ford Mondeo estates, I remember there was a review video at the time saying "Sorento goes where a Mondeo can't!"

I'd definitely consider another Kia if the need arose.

I can strongly recommend the earlier Mazda 2 (2002-2007) if you can find a low mileage one (mine is an 07 reg 1.4) 45,000 on the clock.
this one looks OK

My son-in-law gets a new car every three years and the last two have been petrol Qashqais. They have been very reliable. I think the only issue was a failed battery which was replaced under warranty. He's just changed this month but wanted something a little bigger and has gone for the new Kia Sportage Hybrid which is a very nice car indeed and has a huge boot.

I have a three year old petrol Citroen C3 Aircross (have had it since new) and has never gone wrong once. It's very comfortable and easy to drive with plenty of space in the boot for the dog.. Probably the best car I've had since I gave up my Merc about 18 years ago. I plan to keep this for another two or three years by which time it might be worth looking at electric.

Just like for little trains, I have a British & Commonwealth first (if practicable) purchasing policy for motor cars.

Mrs Poppingham and I have had Nissans for years, almost all Sunderland-built.  Never that particular model, though.  Her late father used them for his driving school as well.

They have all been totally tickety-boo and the dealer support is first class.

I had an electric 'Leaf' as a courtesy car and really enjoyed it.  Acceleration like a 'G50' Matchless and a lot less noisy!

I hope you enjoy your new car and have many, many miles of trouble-free motoring.

With all good wishes.

John
