Nissan Dualis 2010: Should I change to a single-mass flywheel?

Answered by CarsGuide 18 May 2018

The dual-mass flywheel was introduced to reduce the vibrations in the driveline, so in that sense the mechanic was right, but unless you’re very sensitive you’re unlikely to be bothered by any vibrations that might result from changing to a single-mass flywheel. The advantage of switching to a single-mass flywheel is that the clutch is likely to last longer and be cheaper to replace when it does wear out.

Can you recommend an SUV for my family?

Answered by CarsGuide 9 Sep 2016

Both are well suited to everyday use around town. They're comfortable, fuel-efficient and safe. The Dualis is a little cheaper than the Sportage, but I would definitely go for the Sportage. I would expect them to have a similar resale value when it comes time to sell, but the reputation of the Sportage for quality and reliability would make it easier to move on.

Answered by CarsGuide 31 Jul 2015

The Avenso Versis is a good all-rounder in the people-mover class. Other people-movers you could consider are the Honda Odyssey, Kia Grand Carnival, or VW Caddy Life, you could consider SUVs like the Ford Territory or Nissan Dualis.

Nissan Dualis 2010: Noise when cold starting

Answered by CarsGuide 2 Jun 2011

For starters, make sure the oil used in the service was the correct Nissan recommended oil. Even if it was have the oil changed again. The spare wheel is a full-sized one, being a normal 16-inch wheel, but because it isn't the same size as the road wheels, which are 18-inch, it is speed limited.

Nissan Dualis 2010: CVT gearbox quality issues

Answered by CarsGuide 13 Jan 2011

It would seem you have a number of valid concerns about the car. Write a letter to your dealer detailing the problems you have experienced with the car and your disappointment, and request a meeting with them and a Nissan representative so you can express your concerns face to face and thrash out a program of work to fix the car.

Nissan Dualis 2011: Airbag light flashing

Answered by CarsGuide 17 Nov 2010

The dealer’s advice to drive “carefully” is appalling. If there is a risk of the airbags not working they should have offered you a replacement car until yours if repaired. The part required is probably coming from overseas, but Nissan could airfreight it here and have it available within a day or two. That the dealer has had your car for nine weeks is, again, appalling. The best thing to do is to get on the phone to Nissan headquarters and express your disappointment with the treatment you have received. If you were unfortunate enough to have a crash you would be liable, I doubt that Nissan could be held accountable, but you would need to get legal advice on that.
