Is the latest QQ any better!?

Post by beeker » Thu Nov 23, 2017 4:40 pm

Hi everyone

I took delivery of a Tekna QQ in April and everything was great to start with then more and more problems began to happen.

Rattles in the dash.
Creaking noise from the rear.
Clunking noise from the rear which sounded like metal on metal.
Loud rattling noise from the rear.

7 visits to the dealership and all they have manage to fix is the rattle in the dash board.

They replaced a rear light cluster that didn't need replacing. This started off the knocking noises in the rear. They have now replaced both rear light clusters but the rattling and knocking noises remain, albeit not as bad. Dealership are useless. Went out with the technician and he could hear all the noises mentioned but returned car after 2 days with all but one of them fixed!

I've had enough now after 7 visits and I am getting rid. I was wondering does anyone know if the latest 2017 face lifted QQ is any better? If it's not I'm going elsewhere.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Beeker, I do not think this will really help you but over the years and there are many of us that have been around since 2014 and are satisfied with our QQ‘s. It has been stated regularly that the QQ has had problems and most members seem to have experienced similiar or suffered the same problems, but in most cases they have been corrected.
Now from your comments it appears to be a „Dealer“ Problem and this comment appears to arise very often when these problems occur. It has also been mentioned that if you do find a good Dealer then hang on to them as they do make life easier.
Just to mention it again if you are not satisfied, talk to the Dealer General Mgr. and Air you views through NCS by phone and definitely by email as it is then in „Black & White“, do not keep quite on it as you have been relieved of a lot of money. Sorry but we have the earlier J11A model not the new J11B so cannot compare - All the Best Dave ;)

Have a look at this viewtopic.php?f=31&t=5677

Or rear axle for strange noises, a well known and recognised problem.

Loose roof rails.

Or..........................find a decent dealer.

If they "returned car after 2 days with all but one of them fixed", which is the one noise left?

I had the dasboard rattle and a sensor issue. Both resolved very quickly at the dealer.

Thanks everyone for your input. Does anyone know if the latest model are having these issues reported? I would consider buying the latest model if these have been ironed out.

As stated before these problems are by no means common in J11a models, but it's no reason to change up to the latest J11b variant. Find a different Nissan dealer to sort I'd suggest.
