The range on our 2013 Nissan Juke 1.6 DiG-T is hopelessly inaccurate. Even with a full tank of fuel, the display will say 90 mile range. Two franchised dealers have told us that there is no fault code...
Now that we have better quality sensors and electronics, is it not possible for car manufacturers to fit accurate speedometers? On a section of road works where the speeds are closely monitored, most drivers...
