Mitsubishi ASX, Qashqui or something else? (for the wife)
Looking for a new (secondhand) car for the wife
Aiming around £10/11k ish max, 3/4 years old, ideally cheaper
She wants a high driving position
Was looking at a Nissan Qashqai but seen a few Mitsubishi ASX’s that also look good value (£9k, less than 20k mileage in basic petrol ‘2’ spec ) and reading up it seems quite economical (another important consideration)
Boot space is important (she carts a fair bit of stuff around for her (kids swim teaching) business but anything will be bigger than her current Citreon C3 so it’s not a deal breaker, she won’t entertain an estate car (and saloons are out as cant get the dog in the boot!)
Most of her driving is local but It would also be used on longer motorway journeys
Toys are nice but spec again not a deal breaker, (when she got her last car she was over the moon it had a CD player!)
Any experiences with the ASX?Posted 4 years ago

Looking £14k for a duster with a spec similar to other cars the basic spec is laughable, given both my wife and I will drive it an adjustable steering wheel and a radio would be nice!
…and poor NCAP scores, another consideration with a 3 year old in the back
I’d rather go secondhand and get better spec for less with someone else having taken the hit on most of the depreciationwitherseaMember
Blimey that much. We had one of the first qashqais and loved it and hated it at the same time. Numerous faults, poor dealership support, poor replacement parts (no fuel pumps held I’m the UK when mine failed) and then the internal door handles failed (very common fault) just outside warranty. So it was a thank you and goodbye. Can put some of it down to it being one of the first from the production line I suppose.

I had the same dealer, parts problem with my aventura navarra. Engine went pop 1000 over warranty despite being serviced religiously by main dealer.Posted 4 years ago
They couldn’t get an engine as all navarras went pop at the same time. So common fault you would have thought? No according to nissan so I paid in full after eventually getting it back 5 months later.
Good luck if you get nissan.jambalayaSubscriber
Rav4 or CRV. We had a second gen Rav4 (2000) and it a great car, compact enough to park in town, good for kids and that model the rear seats came out and it was van like load carrier. Downside is they hold their value well so I doubt you’ll get a 3yr old one for your budget. Ours was 2l auto so not economical but I think the diesels are okPosted 4 years ago
