Hi, we've had a 1.6 SE Black Nissan Note from new since early 2006. Really like Nissans but our Note has caused lots of issues - good to see them mentioned on this forum too. Whereas our Micra has given us years of trouble free motoring the Note has been troublesome.

Disappointly for Nissan we've found the official dealer to miss issues, charge too much and provide poor service. Local garage has been splendid. Our dealer in Cambridge (Marshalls) charged a huge amount of issues that 'weren't covered by warranty' - eg bearings issue in right wheel axle - whilst the warranty coverage was being checked the wheel nearly came off. Local garage fixed it properly and we haven't been back to the dealer since. Find types quite costly to replace, have had the knocking issue that others mention on the forum and a few other issues.

That said, if my wife hadn't had these issues, we'd love the car. We've tried really hard but next time we're in a position to get a car I don't think it will be a Nissan.

No - it is rather random. When it has been looked at by local garage (plus kwick-fit on holiday) they found nothing. Identical issues to those mentioned in the main thread on this forum. Seems to happen sometimes when in 2nd / 3rd gear when turning or going around roundabout. Probably happens about 5% of the time.

The serious bearing issue with the back right wheel was really serious - garage said the wheel could have come totally off. Hence concern about the knocking issue too - plan to print off the main topic and share with garage. It is always the understandable issue that when they test they cannot find it.
