Nissan Pulsar 2013 Q&As
Check out real-world situations relating to the Nissan Pulsar here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
Why does the gear stick randomly go into reverse in my 2013 Nissan Pulsar?
Changing a clutch in any car is a big job and can easily cost the sort of money you’ve been quoted. And when that car is a front-wheel-drive vehicle, there are a lot of things to remove (like the driveshafts) before the gearbox can be removed and the new clutch fitted.
While I agree that the symptoms you’re reporting do sound like a worn out clutch, I’d like to know what else the mechanic thinks will be wrong. He or she may, for example, be budgeting for the removal and machining of the flywheel as part of the clutch replacement, That can easily add a couple of hundred to the bill. Also, where is the mechanic sourcing the new clutch? You may have found a replacement kit online for the $500 you’re quoting, but is it a quality part from a reputable brand or a no-name piece of rubbish from an internet clearing house?
Nissan Pulsar 2013: Why won't it shift into reverse?
Try gently releasing the clutch while you’re holding the lever in the reverse position. It’s probably an adjustment issue, it could be a clip that’s broken, and nothing serious. I would take it to a mechanic who should be able to tell you exactly what is wrong with it.
How to get Nissan to replace/refund my 2013 Pulsar?
If we were in the USA your car would be called a ‘lemon’ and you would be getting a refund or a replacement car. Unfortunately this isn’t America and we have pathetically weak consumer laws and an even weaker body (ACCC) overseeing them. You could try to negotiate a deal with Nissan, who I don’t think have a leg to stand on, or get a lawyer involved.
2013 Pulsar transmission failure
You would like to think that it shouldn't happen, but the reality is that sometimes it does. As it's out of warranty it's up to you to try and negotiate a deal with Nissan to cover at least part of the cost of the repairs. Do that by going directly to Nissan's customer service (1800 035 035) and requesting them to help out. If that fails you could seek help from the Victorian Government's consumer affairs department.
