Yeah, I think I'll have to as well. I have collected evidence, and this is a common issue. Which in itself, is evidence.

Re: 1.2 DIG-T - Oil loss

Next step try Nissan. They've said once I've authorised an inspection they'll look at it themselves. If they find the engine needs replaced they will not release the car to me as its not fit for the road. Also, I would have to pay for the new engine (£6500). The car is out of warranty, and they don...

Just inform your dealer that you have sought advice and have been advised to initially, formally aproach the dealer/manufacturer and request that the defect is made good and that the response from the dealer/manufacturer will decide if further action needs to be taken Thanks for your reply.

Re: 1.2 DIG-T - Oil loss

So pleased I found this forum, I have a that seems to be burning oil and have a piston issue. Just out of warranty. In for diagnostics this week, hoping that Nissan will sort it out. It falls within the serial numbers listed in the bulletin. I will be taking this all the way, as I bought from a Nis...

Re: Noise / rattle when engine cold

Could you give us an update if you have one? So they looked at mine yesterday... They did a diagnostic, a remap and another diagnostic and who knows what else. In the end they decided I need a whole new engine. They told me that there was more than 25% difference in pressure between the cylinders! ...

Re: Noise / rattle when engine cold

I'm not sure if there is a direct correlation between rattle and lack of power, but there is very little power below 2k from the 1.2 anyway I feel. The engine itself is prone to issue though. There's a huge pinned thread about the engine issues and even a newspaper article about it. Have you had a ...

Re: Noise / rattle when engine cold

Funny you should post this. My QQ is booked in for next Friday for the exact same noise. My rattle occurs between 1.4 - 2k revs. You can hear it best in second hear (road noise is less). When looking under the bonnet there were no obvious signs (apart from the air intake not held on to the slam pan...
