Finally Free From The Cursed Qashqai

After buying a 2014 1.2 Qashqai back in April, I'm finally free from what has, by far, been the most problematic and disappointing car I have owned in my 15 years of driving. A large portion of the disappointment has come from Nissan customer 'care'. I work in the motor trade and understand that new...

Re: System fault

New camera fitted today and recalibrated.

I've been assured this is a rare problem and this will fix it.

Only time will tell...

Re: 1.2 DIG-T - Oil loss

Picked up the car this morning following a rear camera replacement and to follow up on the oil loss. Rear camera was replaced with a new one and recalibrated. Seems to be working ok with no warnings or 'system failures'. In terms of the oil loss, they basically said to bring it back after 3100 miles...

Re: 1.2 DIG-T - Oil loss

I've reported an oil loss problem to Nissan this past Monday. I have asked them to look into the problem by means of a leak down test rather than a compression test. Had a phone call about an hour ago to say that because I had the timing belt tension replaced (under warranty), that I would have to w...

Re: System fault

After the last time I was in, they said it would need a new camera. They said they would book me in for two weeks time to allow the part to arrive. An hour after dropping the car off yesterday I got a phone call to say the part hadn't arrived and that it would arrive and be fixed by today. Got a pho...

Re: System fault

I did initially take a photo of the warning light and showed it to them the first time but they said they couldn't do anything unless the light was actually on, was really frustrating. The light came on again recently and I took it straight down to the dealer with the engine still running so the lig...

Anyone else disappointed?

Generally I try to look for the positives in situations and am by no means a 'moaning' person, but I have to say I am really quite disappointed with my Nissan QQ. It's the newest and most expensive car I've ever bought and since the day I got it there just seems to have been problem after problem. N...

Re: System fault

I'm still having this issue. My QQ was in having the timing chain tensioner replaced and I mentioned the blind spot system failure had kept coming back. They scanned the car and said there was no fault codes. I've now got to wait until the warning light comes on again and drive it straight down there.

Re: System fault

I've recently had the same issue. I took the car back to Nissan for some recalls and mentioned this at the time, they said they cleared the old fault codes and said to see if it comes back. So far it hasn't but every now and then the icon will flash on and off for a few mins and then go back to norm...

Re: First Time Nissan Owner

Thanks for the welcome guys :) Just picked the QQ up from Nissan, they done two recalls and determined that the rattle was the timing chain tensioner, which I have to take it back in June and leave it with them for two days. I would ideally not drive it any longer until that work was done but the ea...
