Hi guys, i was on the motorway today and decided to use 6th gear (well more like i remembered i had one LOL) went through the gears as normal then into 6th.... not smooth at all, i had to basicaly ram it in with a bit of a crunch...it will go in fine if im just sitting at traffic lights etc but on motorways it takes a little effort to get it into 6th, also nice run to stockport manchester on sunday, i looked at the mpg it got up to 32 mpg ShockedCry surely thats not right at 60 - 70 mph
thanks guys
take care

I've had no trouble getting it into 6th but it feels like you need to keep a slight pressure to the right otherwise you could easily put  it back in 4th, never done it but am always concious of not letting the stick go to the left going  from 5 to 6

I use 6th gear regularly and at no time does it crunch or do I find it difficult to select, I would certainly suggest a few runs where 6th gear is used and monitor the results better to get it checked now with little miles on the clock than letting it develop. If it is causing problems let your Nissan dealer know then at least it is logged on their system so any problems later it can be backed up that the problem did exist.
Some people may say with the car being new the gearchange might be tight then everyone with a new QQ would experience this yet they dont so As I said monitor this over a short period and if it doesnt get better contact Nissan and tell them.
As far as mileage goes I am presently getting 33mpg on short trips the longer the journey the better the consumption gets. Did you reset the computer before you trip or did you leave it at the setting it was on before the trip?
