Replacing engine at 40K
By tobyc on


2011 Nissan Juke SV 4dr Hatchback AWD (1.6L 4cyl Turbo CVT)


Bought our 2011 Juke at 27k.
At 40k, it developed a knock in the engine.
Took it to dealer where it was purchased and was told the seals in the lower engine were gone and engine needed replaced.
The worst part of the experience was the inference by the service advisor that the problem was caused by not replacing the oil regularly, which is completely untrue.
I felt he was trying to cast blame for an issue other may also be experiencing.
Looks like this car will be gone before the warranty is up on the engine in a few years.
Second thought here about Nissan???

I have the same car at ~50K miles I had to have the engine completely rebuilt because the timing chain was faulty and skipped. I think it's something Nissan isn't owning up to. Definitely not buying another one...
