Why is my new Qashqai misfiring?

I have a new Nissan Qashqai 1.6 dci manual. I bought it four months ago and it has 2000 miles on the click. However, last week, it developed a "misfire" usually in fifth gear. This currently happens infrequently but usually once on my 18 mile commute. Have you had any other reports and any suggestions before I take it into the dealer?

One report in August 2014 of intermittent hesitation at 65-70mph, cured by a dealer TSB software upgrade that took two hours to programme in: www.honestjohn.co.uk/carbycar/nissan/qashqai-2014/...d
