Re: Turning the lights off when indicating right..

I couldn't understand this problem so had a look at it this morning. I use the middle finger of the left hand whilst keeping my hand on the steering wheel so have never switched the lights off. However if I grabbed the indicator with the thumb and forefinger with the hand off the steering wheel then...

Re: red management light, now smoking

Re: Keep or Change ??

Approaching 10000 miles on ours and it is 18 months old. No problems apart from 3 activation's of the auto braking system for no reason. Lovely to drive, looks great and good mpg. But I am uncomfortable with it having the problematic 1.2 petrol engine and the CVT as the mileage increases. The 1.3 DC...

Re: UK well placed to meet growing demand for Electric car batteries

Rare materials, expensive to buy and replace after a relatively short lifespan, difficult and expensive to recycle but don't worry we will just stockpile millions of them somewhere. Not environmentally friendly at all.

Re: Extended Warranty

Qashowner, That is good to see that you have done 35000 on your QQ CVT box. I would still like an extended warranty in 18 months time if I keep the car as the cost of replacement is very high. Having read reports especially from the USA and the fact that Nissan have discontinued the CVT in favour of...

Re: Extended Warranty

Qashowner, You say you have the CVT. What mileage are you at and have you had any problems with it?

Re: Independent Servicing

Dave, thanks I have found someone from your post who is only 1 mile away so I will use them in the future. Had I known in Dec last I could have saved £60+ instead of paying the Main Dealer £199.

Re: Emergency braking system fault

Thursday we were travelling slowly through a small village which had a lay-by on the nearside of the road. A passenger was getting into a car so I gave him a bit of space and moved slightly into the oncoming lane which was completely free of traffic and then moved back to the normal road position. A...
