Summary:

Great car... worrying engine

Faults:

DPF light came on, but blew it out as per directions from the dealer.

Now have engine management EGR light on... told it will cost £200 to replace valve plus £200 work costs.

General Comments:

I am seriously worried now, having read the reviews on this site... my Nissan Aventura 2.0 ltr drives like a dream... but the light stays on EGR. Problems say the dealer???

The service manager says that they do not have many problems like this... as an 08 Xtrail arrives on the forecourt on the back of an AA truck???

Nissan need to accept that there is a problem with the EGR / Turbo thing, and get to grips with it...

I bought this car to tow my caravan... I am not satisfied that there will not be other problems... think I'll be going back to Ford...

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

I was looking seriously at these here in Australia, until I found out the diesel engine is from Renault. Not worth the risk after all I've heard about Renault products. Think I'll keep my '07 TDCi Focus.
