Why won't my Nissan X-Trail start?

I doubt that it’s the battery or starter that’s causing your problem. I would suggest digging deeper into the engine itself, perhaps even check for a leaking head gasket.

Nissan X-Trail: Car repairs are taking too long

Answered by CarsGuide 3 May 2013

Talk to a senior manager at the dealership and ask for a report on what they're doing to fix your car and a timetable for when you will be able to get it back. If that is unsuccessful, go to Nissan and make the same demands. To step it up from there you could approach Consumer Affairs and enlist their help. You could also demand the use of a loan car while yours is being fixed. The service you have received has been nothing short of disgraceful.

Answered by CarsGuide 8 Mar 2013

It seems Nissan has agreed to fix the issue under goodwill, so I would start by going back to the company and get that happening. If you don't feel you can do that, there's no other option but to pay for the replacement air box yourself.
