Hi Rob

Great post. I'm sure we all have something we would like to change about our Antaras.

To be fair the model is well over due for a revamp. The new Antara if its to be called that will be out next year.

I agree about the info screen it is past its sell by date. And mpg obviously matters.

1. The interior dash could be better. I prefer the design of the Captivas dash but both still look dated compared to other SUVs. And make it from better materials that's to squeak as much lol.

2. A proper spare wheel would be nice but will never happen. It seems its going to be run flat tyres or inflation kit from now on.

I'm sure I could think of loads of other things like the folding mirrors working via the ignition although I would still need a switch on the dash otherwise I wouldn't get my Antara in my Garage.

Had my Antara for 14 months and 14k miles now, things to change:

As already mentioned better quality plastics, mine rattles and squeaks from console, dash and doors

Paint chips at the slightest hint of a stone

Seats squeak where leather meets plastic

Display, on mine defaults to trip computer, I don't want/need reminding of how thirsty it is!

Spare wheel sorted - bought 2nd hand alloy and tyre

Plus point tows caravan very well, like the ride height and it handles well for such a vehicle

Try some silicone spray on the plastic trim it works a treat.

I'm surprised by the stone chip issue without tempting fate I have had mine for 12 months now and only 2 small chips and I'm a bit obsessive about cleaning etc.
