Hi all.

My hubby went into dealer today to purchase a 1.6dci 4WD QQ and was told we couldnt as there no further orders being taken till at least 2015.??

When we asked we were told it was such a popular engine? Have I missed something, is this the case or is there a more fundamental fault that I wasnt aware of?

Sorry if there is a known fault that you all know but can you help? G also looked at an ex demo XTrail but really does prefer the QQ..

Thanks

Hi Fee, sorry to say but this is true. New orders are going well into the New Year despite a full production run at the factory.
Two bro in laws working flat out overtime, but there was a part shut down on the lines a few weeks back due to overrun on maintainence.
Glad to hear you're thinking of the QQ again

We visited the factory and asked this question. It was suggested that as the new X-Trail uses the same engine, and as the X-Trail was so successful after its recent launch, so they just don't have enough 1.6 engines to meet demand and the X-Trail, being the newly launched, is getting priority.

How true this is I don't know but it seems plausible.

.. Thanks guys!! At least its not a fault.. i have a very suspicious mind!!

I still have my wee Juke but a new job is forcing G to get shot of his BMW (woohoo- old mans car , hate it!!) and get a 4 WD.

The numbers need to improve but it looks like it'll be Nissan , if we can get an ex demo QQ that may have to be a consideration...

Cheers guys, thanks for the replies!!,!

Yeah, i was looking too...Thanks!   He cant wait till next year as he needs a car pretty sharpish so I reckon we'll be looking at the X Trail.... Cracking car but I must admit, ride in the back seat was pretty jarring with the 19" inch wheels!!

There are a few ex demos out there just now.. Maybe get a deal on one of them...

Cheers

Delays on the QQ are due to non planned critical repairs on one of the main presses at the factory.
 
The workers are still trying to catch up, plenty of overtime available.

Far be it for me to question someone working at the plant but that doesn't make sense to me... the delays I have seen have been with the 1.6 engine and in particular the CVT. Surely if it were a press causing these delays it would affect all QQs wouldn't it?

Not trying to be argumentative... just trying to understand Smile

I have put the word out Fee 1.6dci 4WD what spec?

To avoid 19" wheels I'm thinking Accenta Premium?

Cheers Frankie...

Acenta Premium would be Grand.. G isnt as fussy as me when it comes to wheel style..

We are still looking up here...no ex demo 4WD only 2WDs around?

Fingers crossed Fee.
My dealer called - still no date for my 1.6 CVT.
Ordered 24.04.14.
Did I see here that others who ordered after me have delivery dates?

Incidentally does the Premier Edition have a spare wheel or tyre repair kit... i was always on the understanding that 4WD models had to have a spare???

Had a conversation on the "delays"...

It seems no matter how much Nissan planned ahead on the number required again they have been caught completely off guard on the demand, with the factory running at 105% production.

They (Nissan) have "instructed" dealerships to push the X-Trial to reduce demand as it is not built at Sunderland, (So not British then    and all those "imports... tut tut!) the planned expansion of Leaf production and Pulsar builds in the future at Sunderland are all taking second place to the Qashqai line.

There are plenty of engines and transmissions but not the time / space to build them into Qashqai's at the required demand rates.

Those of you who have been to Sunderland will know how difficult it would be to increase supply further.

To quote a Nissan Press release from Sept 2007: "The new models give Sunderland the potential to produce 400,000 cars in 2007, markets willing." Despite the "credit crunch" the anti 4WD lobby Qashqai went on to date to sell over 3.5 Million units....

You have to feel, for those waiting, the hard workers, and management at Nissan!

Thanks Frankie, but........

If they have plenty of engines and gearboxes then why did the Nissan UK Marketing Director we met at Goodwood tell me it was specifically a CVT issue, why the rumours of press problems and why have they closed the order books only on any 1.6s?

My cynical brain tells me if you get too many different answers to the same question then it is none of the above.

.........and why - 5 months after I placed my order - is it not yet on Nissan 's system when my dealer checks?

Bit too vague for my liking.

I wouldn't treat my clients that way.
