@Nissan: Quote: Nissan will reprogram the Engine Control Module to reduce the maximum achievable engine revolutions per minute. As a result, the engine
will no longer operate in a high load and high engine speed condition that may cause premature bearing wear.
The reduction in maximum achievable engine revolutions per minute will not affect the maximum speed of the vehicle.

This is all you can offer? We have problems with the wheels, so we remove em??
By far the most annoying solution I've ever heard.... (Would say stupid but I did not :whistle: )

In The Netherlands we have a expression and it goes like this: Mopping the water with the tap still open...

P.S. It's a Renault engine isn't it....?

I would have thought by then the damage has been done! I tow a caravan so will be contacting my dealer to seek advice, saying that it was in for service the other week and they never mentioned this!

anyone had this software update done. if so is there any difference in performance

or is it just a rev limiter, goes in Tuesday for this and the green 4wd and " 2 skidding cars " lights on,
tried the battery disconnect for 2 hours and all 6 brake fuses check OK

this is the 4th time for faults on a new xtrail in 2 years, wife is not a happy bunny. :bigcry:

was between this and a Vauxhall Antara, now regretting this choice,

Hmmmmmmmm.... thing every brand has it's makkes (problems) Be glad it's no Fiat or Lancia....
Nissan is one of the most reliable brands in the world. In the top 100, they always are in the top 10. So, I think that everybody can have bad luck once in a while. On the other side: what is 1 to 100? (in case of bad luck) the other 99 are functioning normal...

Bad news that :headbang: so they are more or less saying the big end shells or mains are not up to the job when under high load /speed, probably to do with DPF faults when regenerating and putting excess diesel into the sump

Never liked Renault rubbish


My thoughts too. I noticed recently my oil level is slightly up probably due to DPF regen. Oils done 9k miles so will be getting it changed early. Me thinks 12.5k is too long with DPF regen oil dilution.

just had the software update, engine smoother, pulls in higher gear, quieter, no diesel knock,
sounds more like a car than a truck, ( will have to change my name here )
hill that struggled in 3rd now pulls up smoother,

the 4wd and abs light was caused by a water leak into the main harness under the bonnet,
the harness was not made water tight on manufacture
unused abs plug taped into harness wet,
looks like it may be a recall,
