Underrated and very good value

Hi all,
Here’s an update now I’ve run the Koleos for three years: normal servicing is annual (carried out at my local Nissan dealership - cheaper than the Renault dealer).

The photo shows the alloy boat it tows.

Apart from consumables, the following have been replaced:

1. Driver’s sun visor (became sloppy)
2. Right mirror/indicator (scraped and had water egress, but still worked)
3. Tailgate release actuator (broke)
4. Windscreen wiper motor (noisy and likely to fail - warranty replacement)

I had to call for assistance once when a rental trailer’s faulty connection blew a fuse and locked the vehicle in ‘park’ - perhaps a weak point but it may be a potential issue with many modern cars as they become ever more complex?

Otherwise I remain quite attached to the Koleos, and am in no hurry to replace it (possibly if a very low km BOSE version turned up hmmm?!).

Remember, when there’s fuel in the tank there’s hope :-)
