Only just discovered the diagnosis for mine as it’s been creaking at the back for some time

Nissan are cheeky as they acted like they’d never come across this problem before and didn’t suggest what it was - it was only when I took it to a local independent that they diagnosed it.

Car just over 3 years old so will be contacting Nissan asking for at least a contribution to replace the rear axle bar which is defective!

The car is a good car but I don’t like the way Nissan Operate (always in denial and against the customer) so won’t be tempted to buy another Nissan after I get rid of this one

The service you get depends very much on the dealer you use but Nissan don't seem to do anything about the bad ones.

Considering the turnover of Nissan and the success of the Qashqai I personally find it quite disgusting how Nissan tend to 'fob off' customers who are just out of warranty who have a blatent design flaw or defects that should never occur in a car. Since when did we all need to replace our rear axles due to wear and tear?! Absolute nonsense.

The Nissan dealers (who are ultimately the face of Nissan) tend to palm it off to say 'its in Nissans hands' and take zero responsibility.

I got this same attitude from BMW when my Mini Countryman was still in warranty..I suspect most manufacturers do the same!

Personally, I dont think I will by another new car unless it is a total bargain like my current QQ. At least with a secondhand car you can drive it before you buy it.

I've had the same creaking noise for the last 2 years on my 14 reg Qashqai. A year ago Nissan offered to pay half, leaving me a £600 bill, which I did not feel was a good deal at the time, so I left it. Now its worse. I had an independent garage confirm, yes new rear axle required, so its back to Nissan. Then I saw this - sounds just like the noise I have :

Hi,
I've purchased a new Qashqai and the rear axle was immediately diagnosed as faulty. Will be replaced by the dealership. Great job on detecting the issue.
