3 Engine Oil Leaking problem of the 2011 Nissan Juke

Many 2011 Nissan Jukes were part of a VIN specific recall involving a manufacturing defect causing the the timing chain to stretch. My vehicle was not a part of this recall but I have recently had this issue with my car, rendering it unusable. Nissan has been contacted but is claiming it is a warranty issue (they have not been working with me to escalate this issue). I have also notified my attorney generals office who recommended I reach out to you. I had two mechanics look at it before going to Nissan and a Nissan tech confirmed that this is, in fact, the issue with my car. I found out when my car just stopped running while in idle, and then it would not start again. My mechanic found an oil leak, and a second mechanic (my first was too booked to dig too deep into the issue) found the timing chain issue and recommended going straight to Nissan. Since the issue occurred the car has not been driven and is currently at Nissan.

4 Engine Oil Leaking problem of the 2012 Nissan Juke

My daughter purchased a used 2012 Nissan Juke from a Nissan dealer in 2014. Recently, she had a very large oil leak. We had the car towed to the dealer who told us there was a hole in the timing chain cover and something inside is rattling, but they can’t tell what it is until they open the case which takes 6 hours. They also said they need to rebuild the cams and all top seals in the camshaft area. I asked what could have cause this and was told it looked like friction from the broken part inside caused the hole in the timing chain cover. I was told the cams and seals needed to be redone due to loss of oil pressure. The car was not driven with the oil leak, we would have noticed in on the driveway. The oil had just been changed a few weeks before. After doing research on the internet, I found several reputable sources saying this make/model/year of Nissan Juke has many incidents of the timing chain stretching and damaging the cover causing oil leaks and engine damage — a manufacturer defect. The cost of the job is $2,900. (plus rental car) it also appears Nissan isn’t addressing the issue as well as it should (consumer reports). I’ve called Nissan USA customer service and after speaking with a representative, asked to speak with a supervisor. I was told I’d get a call back within 4-8 business hours. It’s now been double that time and I haven’t received a call. It appears Nissan knows of this defect and isn’t willing to repair it after it causes damage or after the warranty expires. I feel this is unacceptable!.

It was only «patched and not fixed» states the mechanic from ed hicks Nissan. I purchased the extended warranty for 100,000 miles and at 108,000 miles the engine blows and Nissan does not want to claim responsibility for the damage. I took care of my car since it is all I have and believed in Nissan mechanics when they said it was fixed and ready. Not having my vehicle has caused so much stress in my life.

8 Engine Oil Leaking problem of the 2011 Nissan Juke

I helped my daughter purchase a 2011 Nissan Juke in November 2015. In April 2015, the check engine light came on in the vehicle. She immediately took it in to a wal-mart service center. The wm technician told her that there were metal shavings in the oil pan and that the timing chain needed to be replaced. He suggested that she take the vehicle on to a Nissan dealership which she did the next day. The service technician at the Nissan dealership told her that ¿wal-mart didn¿t know what they were talking about,¿ and that there were no metal shavings in the oil pan. They did, however, replace the timing chain since there was about to be a recall, and they also performed an oil change. Last week (October 2015), the car went dead in the middle of the highway. My daughter took it the next day to the same Nissan dealership. The same service technician as the one in April told her that there were metal shavings in the oil pan, there was no oil in the vehicle, and that due to her negligence the engine would have to be replaced at a cost of $10,000. When she pointed out that she told them in April about the metal shavings, the service tech told her he had no recollection of that. She and I both talked with a Nissan regional specialist. We were told, ¿sorry, your powertrain warranty ran out at 60,000 miles. ¿ as I looked over her receipt from April, I noticed there were items listed that would be used to stop an oil leak (this was confirmed by a certified mechanic), yet no such problem was mentioned to her or checked off on the inspection sheet they gave her. When I asked the regional specialist to speak to the fact that there had obviously been an attempt to patch an oil leak, he replied, ¿I can¿t speak to that. I¿m not a mechanic. ¿ Nissan has been absolutely no help.
