There's an interesting discussion going on in the other forum.   Someone has posted the technical bulletin which lists the vehicle numbers of cars with a potentially dodgy engine. 

Mine fell in this range, and right on cue when 3.5 years old I got the oil usage followed by stretched timing chain followed by having the whole engine replaced...

Affected Qashqais SJN*E*J11U1572966

Interesting - in a scary way - thanks for that Thumbs Up.

Can't recall the VIN of my dearly-departed 2014 1.2, but maybe I escaped in time.

Did you get sorted under warranty?  Hope so.

CONSPIRACY THEORY ...................

Mine is awaiting a recall for that change of VIN (why?) which can take 6-8 weeks while the dealer waits for the revised sticker.  Are Nissan trying to cover up another fault by making sure my VIN doesn't match the technical bulletin when it is issued? Shocked LOL

Only just realised the image has been shrunk and not quite readable. I'll try and reattach.

Affected Qashqais are SJN*E*J11U1000000 to SJN*E*J11U1572966, which means at least half a million (assuming it's a sequential range).

Yes, it was sorted under an extended Cared4 warranty - it would have been around ú8500 otherwise!

I'm actually into the 2nd year of a 2 year Cared4 warranty as I bought the car used in March 2017.  It was an additional ú149 to extend from 1 year to 2 year - best ú149 I've ever spent, and I almost didn't at the time.

I've been fortunate enough to be able buy 5 Qashqais from new, trading in at the end of the 3 years PCP.

If - for whatever reason - one proves to be a keeper - and I rather like this one then an extended warranty will be a must I think.

One problem with extended warranties - I was asking what kind of warranty I get on the new engine, and basically I get none.   The Cared4 warranty on the car is till March 2019, so it's covered by that.   But when I asked about 12 months parts and labour, which you normally get for a new part or work done, I was told because I didn't pay a penny towards the new engine being warranty work then I don't get that.

So I'm in a dilemma now.  If for some reason the new engine is dodgy and fails in 9 months time, I'll be shafted, so half of me thinks it'll be time to trade again.   The other half of me thinks I've just had a brand new engine so it's like having a brand new car (which I've never had in my life).  I could get years out of this one now with a bit of loving care !

Get your thinking.

Best just be grateful that you didn't get stung for the ú8500 Shocked.

If the problem only affected a specific and historical batch of VINs then you should be fine with your new one Thumbs Up

I have assumed that that serial number sequence includes all engine variants and hence the number of 1.2 engines affected is a fraction of that.

Try this one - having problems with page 2 since it's larger than the limit
