My tyres would have lasted about 60,000 miles rear at that rate of wear. Brake pads were just a quarter worn down so would have lasted about 90,000 miles.
This vehicle is kind to tyres compared to some Peugeot cars i have owned with replacement at 12,000 miles.
Maybe its because it is an automatic and no jerky pull aways. I do drive at a sedate rate these days but only get 3000 miles from a bike rear tyre as that is hooligan time.
The Nissan was valued at 15,600 pounds after 3 years. Near half its purchase price. I suppose it has been a good car apart from the wayward satnav sending me to the wrong places and taking the long route etc.
Main fault in 3 years was a battery failure and a front strut loosening its top nut. No breakdowns at all and no mechanical repairs. Someone will get a nice perfect 3 year old car. My average mpg for 3 years was 47. This was low for me as the car has only been used in town area this year. Normally, i would have had 50 mpg at least. Not bad for a heavy auto diesel.
Would i buy another British built Nissan ? Maybe,as a new Qashqai will be out soon. During my choosing a replacement, i considered another one but felt i needed to have a different make again.
As an SUV vehicle, this Nissan has been the best seller in the UK and i can see why after 3 years sitting around in it. Hopefully the new Volvo will be at least as good. I will suffer a big difference in fuel use with petrol power. Been locked into diesels since 1996 so quite a change in fuel consumption to what i am used too.
