We bought a nearly new Tekna 1.3 after a previous diesel Qashqai. . It was £27,000 NEW in 2018
We had problems with the child lock engaging when driving and unable to disengage. This was erratic and they replaced one under the warranty but as they couldn't witness the other one, they refused to repair. Eventually, we had to take a video when it (inevitably) occurred again and they agreed to fix it.
We have recently had gear change problems when we try and change gear in the lower gears. We tried Nissan but they can't see us for two weeks so as it's out of warranty, we took it to our local garage who believe it is the slave cylinder and will immediately repair. It also takes a lot of revs to release the autobrake leading to dangerous situations driving off.
But it only has 35,000 miles on it and we've NEVER had an issue with any other car like this so early on. As the original poster said, we haven't suddenly changed how we use the gears. And our VW which we have from new in 2017 still has lovely smooth gear changes.
It seems Nissan are going the way of Peugeot and instead of producing good cars are now producing bad ones. This will be our last Nissan. 😟
I have a Nissan X-Trail T32 (2017) 2.0dci 4x4, with the N-Connecta package. As I wanted some additional functionalities, I did the following updates as on the Tekna model:
Changed headlights from normal H11 to OEM led version, using this conversion cable.
Added the OEM chrome door stripes on the lower part of the doors (as on Tekna)
Installed two additional USB ports for charging the phones.
Added the OEM 19inch wheels fro, as the standard 18inch were not on my taste.
Now, I am looking if it is worth to upgrade:
Navigation system, to the version with Android Auto / Apple Carplay. This guys sell the conversion cables for 300 USD and additionally you the sat-nav version 259158FW5B, an additional 300 USD... and seems quite a risky investment, not sure it is worth?
Is it worth changing the seats to the leather version for the heated seats option?
I saw this upgrade which I really loved
Did you find any other interesting updates worth doing?
