The automatic gearbox in our Nissan Juke has seized. Should Nissan contribute to the repair?

My wife’s 6-year-old, 36,000-mile Nissan Juke has a seized automatic gearbox. There appears to be a lot of similar problems with the automatic gearbox. Do you think Nissan should make a substantial contribution to provide and fit a new gearbox?

If the vehicle has a full dealer stamped service history then I would expect them to make a 'goodwill contribution' on your behalf to Nissan UK. Otherwise, I think it would be better to get a second opinion from an independent garage. I would suggest taking the car to a member of:
