I have recently bought a 1.4 Nissan Note (more of which at a later date) which has a cam chain rather than a belt. Chain drive seems pretty rare nowadays but what are the advantages of a belt over a chain. Seems that the belt just means a copuple of hundred quid down the road to replace the belt every now and then.
Someone had to come up with a reasonable rival to the Honda Jazz. And while the Nissan Note doesn’t break new ground like the Jazz did (and still does), it has enough to commend it to win friends and influence poeple.
