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 2008: Going into limp-home mode?

Answered by CarsGuide 15 Feb 2011

For some reason it’s going into ‘limp home’ mode and the reason for it doing that needs to be found and fixed. You have clearly had the runaround from the dealer and Nissan, and you would appear to have been extremely patient, but it’s time you got nasty. You need to take control of the situation and demand that the car be fixed. Ask for a meeting with the dealer and a Nissan rep and request a plan of action they will undertake to fix the problem. If that fails use the powers you have under the new national consumer law to pursue Nissan. Don’t worry that Nissan’s warranty might have expired, because the company is still responsible for the product under the consumer law if it has sold you a car that is unfit for purpose or they have failed to fix a problem with it. I think you have a very good case against the company under the provisions of that law. Phone the ACCC on 1300 302 502 or go to for more information on the law.
