Chassis Control

Post by Orpheus » Fri Feb 08, 2019 10:58 am

Hi All,

I am the new owner of a 61 plate (pre facelift) mk2 Qashqai Tekna. Had it for a week and thoroughly enjoying it!

One thing I am struggling with is trying to work out what features my car should have!

I’ve got chassis control, and in the guidebook and everywhere else this is spoken about as having 3 components (where fitted), but I can only see trace control in the menu.

As my Tekna was top of the line I assume that either the manual was printed knowing that these extra features would be added or it was an added extra. Can anyone elaborate? Also does anyone know where I can find a definitive list of the features my car has?

Thanks,

Someone may have access to the Nissan brochure for that vintage.

Welcome to this forum. I'm a bit confused by your description. I'd have said the J10 is the Mark 1 and the J11 (late 2013 on) is the Mark 2.

The J10 had a mid-term facelift which occurred in 2009/2010.

So I conclude you have a late 2011 - early 2012 facelift J10 mark 1 Qashqai... * see below

Let's see what my archive reveals...

Well I have a brochure dated both 10/2011 and 2012/04 so that should cover it.

[ EDIT - if you can't read that save to your computer and open it from there - that gets you the original resolution ]

Neither of the words "chassis control" or "trace" occur in the document however.

All trims have "Electronic Stability Program" (ESP) and "ABS with Brake Assist and EBD"


* - you could I suppose have a Mark 2 J11 (2014-2018 pre-facelift) with a personalised numberplate making it look older than it is? If so could we have the exact spec and year?

Sorry for the confusion, my mistake! It’s a 16 plate Tekna, so mk2 J11 pre facelift.

I have a 65 plate Tekna, so only 6 months...ish difference. What exactly do you think you're missing ?

It’s not that I think I’m missing anything, I’m just confused as to why I have part of the chassis control, so I’ve got active trace control but not active engine brake or active ride control.

I’m sure it’s only a feature of the ‘auto’ version of the QQ.

Both engine brake and active ride control? That would explain it!

I don't have engine brake or active ride control either. Never heard of them, so as gvmdaddy say's, maybe it's on auto's only.

The spec for a May 2016 Qashqai - all models - lists:

Chassis Control (Active Engine Brake*, Active Trace Control and Active Ride Control)

*Xtronic auto transmission versions only


... so you've got Active Ride Control! :)
