I have been unable to get reverse gear. I took it into a garage and they found that the lower end of the gear lever had broken away. They have ordered a new one from Nissan and to get it fitted it will cost 200 in all. The Qashqai Acenta 1.6 manual is nearly 5 years old and has done 21000 miles. I am considering sending a copy of all the paper work  incl bill to the  Customer Service  at Nissan HQ saying this should not have happened and will they consider a contribution towards the costs.

This turned out to be the gear lever gate which broke at 21000 miles. I got in touch with Nissan as the car is  only 4 years old. They declined to make a contribution stating that the car should have been repaired by a Nissan dealer and not  Halfords. I did point out that this was an emergency repair as the car would not go into reverse gear.
