APPALING CAR AND COMPANY

The SHORT VERSION of events - we have a 10-plate Qashqai N-Tec 1.5dCi... covered 42000 miles and was 3yrs 9.5 months old up to the date it died ! It has been serviced as per the requirements by reputable, all be it, non Nissan dealers. The timing belt has failed, Nissan of quoted approx £5900 for the replacement of the engine and have refused any form of goodwill on the basis that the car was purchased outside of the Nissan Dealer Network.

In April of 2013 Nissan recalled a number of Qashqai's (mainly '09 and '10 plates) affected by premature timing belt wear due to the poor positioning of the fuel pump in relation to the belt. Despite the fact that my vehicle falls into the date range of the recall notice Nissan have checked my chassis number against their records and have stated that this particular chassis number was NOT part of the recall. If you go various forums you will see a multitude of similar complaints regarding premature timing belt failure.

The car may not be in warranty but with a defect such as this, that has affected vehicles of the same age then surely Nissan can not wipe their hand of the situation ? But it seems they have.

Please beware if you still intend to buy a 1.5dCi - check the state of the timing belt... and keep a very close eye on it. You can find more info by searching google for #MyNissanHell
