Re: What don't you like about your Grandland

On the SE model no folding mirrors,no boot light (It can’t put much on as standard).Gearbox whine and gear crunching.Doors out of line.Stop start a waist of time.Glove box useless.Foot rest to near clutch pedal.Most items are only small grips but spoils a good car

It might say it on the menu but go into the dealer and they tell a different story .This needs changing as to stop confusion.Would be good if it was the price .
