The problem that I am having is that some of them come with ISOfix bases which is great, however the retailers are telling me that because Nissan is not on their list of tried and tested cars they cannot sell it to me. Could you please tell me as to whether any maxi-cost car seats, maxi-cosi easyfix or maxi-cosi ISOfix bases have been crash tested in this vehicle or are going to be in the near future?
Nissan have decided, on a pan European basis, to test all child seats available on the market to determine the safest seat for each new Nissan vehicle. Whichever seat performs the best in tests, this seat will be recommended in the vehicle manual. These seats will need to be sourced by the customer themselves, but does ensure that the customer will be confident that they will have the safest seat for their child. If you are looking for a child seat for group 1 (from birth up to 13kg) and group 2 (from 9 to 18 kg) you should also contact directly the Fair S.r.L. distributor for Great Britain who will supply the correct childseat and ISOfix frame directly to your dealership. The specific recommended ISOfix seat is the Bimbofix XL (G0/1).

What does the term, 'Permitted towing weight/towing capacity' refer to?
The maximum weight of trailer with load which can be towed behind the vehicle. Figures may be given for braked or unbraked trailer. Towing capacity may vary under certain conditions such as gradient.
What does the term, 'Payload' refer to?
The payload of the vehicle is the gross weight minus the kerb weight of the vehicle. To calculate the cargo weight, any additional weight including the driver, any passenger(s) and other equipment or modifications must be deducted from the payload. Care should be taken to remain within the gross vehicle weight and not exceed permitted axel weights. It is the responsibility of the vehicle operator to ensure that the vehicle does not exceed the weights shown on the VIN plate.
What does the term, 'Load Volume' refer to?
The amount of cargo that the load area can accommodate. There are several methods used to calculate load volume. The total load volume in some vehicles is calculated by using materials such as sand, which fill the load area (SAE method). Another method more commonly in use (VDA) uses blocks of 200mm x 100mm x 50mm (1 litre volume), stacked to fill the load area. The final count of blocks is given in litres or cubic metres.
What does the term, 'Permitted axle weights' refer to?
The maximum weight which an axle may support, by design or by law. Care must be taken to distribute the load evenly to avoid overloading at either axle. The combined axle weights may exceed the gross vehicle weight in some cases. This does not mean that the gross vehicle weight may be exceeded.
What does the term, 'Nose weight' refer to?
The vertical weight of the trailer on the hitchball. This must be taken into consideration to ensure the vehicle permitted axel weights and gross vehicle weights are not exceeded.
What does the term, 'Gross Vehicle Weight' refer to?
The maximum weight permitted for the vehicle when fully laden, i.e. the vehicle, plus driver and any passengers, plus any body adaptations; also accessories, fuel, oil, tools and any cargo. If a trailer is being towed, the downward force on the hitchball must be considered.
What does the term, 'Kerb Weight' refer to?
The weight of the complete vehicle without any payload and in standard condition, but including a full tank of fuel, oil, water, spare tyres and tools.
Is it possible to get the EXACT kerb weight for a vehicle, rather than the minimum/maximum figures quoted in the brochure?
The only way to obtain the exact weight of a specific vehicle is to put the vehicle on a public weighbridge.

What is a DPF?
This means your Nissan has been designed to meet the latest environmental regulations concerned with exhaust gas emissions. In order to limit the amount of small soot particles contained within the diesel exhaust gas passing into the atmosphere, your vehicle has been equipped with a diesel particulate filter (DPF). The filter forms part of the vehicle's exhaust system and is similar in construction to a catalytic converter. The DPF traps and stores solid particles or ‘soot', produced by diesel engine combustion. When the amount of soot in the filter reaches a specified level, this needs to be reduced to maintain the filter's function. This reduction is called regeneration and must be performed periodically.
How long should a set of brake pads last on my Nissan vehicle?
As part of their normal operation, brake pads will wear out – the heat and friction caused during braking causes abrasion and therefore wear. That’s why we refer to them as “wear and tear” components. The rate of this wear is influenced by many different factors, including style of driving, type of driving and the type of vehicle you have. For example, driving in a city causes more wear on the brake pads as the driver uses them more than on the open road – stopping at traffic lights or roundabouts, for example. Using the vehicle for towing (whether a caravan, trailer, or another car) may increase brake pad wear quite significantly. Also, we have noticed that brake pads of automatic cars wear out more rapidly, as the driver cannot benefit from engine braking to slow the vehicle and so uses the foot brake more often. As there are so many external factors influencing the wear of brake pads, it’s impossible for me to give an “average” life expectancy. Certainly, replacement of the brake pads due to excessive wear and tear is excluded from the Nissan Pan Europe Warranty. However we do recommend using genuine Nissan brake parts, both pads and discs, to help prolong the life of your brakes. Nissan brake parts are designed to work in harmony together with your Nissan car and give you the best possible performance.
Where can I get technical information about my car?

What is an end of life vehicles (ELV)?
An ELV is a vehicle that reaches the end of its useful life in general after 12 or 15 years. It is also possible to have a premature ELV when the car is involved in caused by accidents and also considered an economic total loss. Although a car arrives at the end of its useful life it still has a value. Every ELV contains valuable raw materials (steel and, light metals, alloys, etc.). These materials can be recycled and used for new cars or for other purposes. In order to protect the environment and prevent the waste, the ELV has to be treated, recycled, recovered or re used as spare components for other cars. For more information click here.
Does recycling reduce CO2 emissions?
Making new cars involves the use of many raw materials, from metals and synthetic products to cardboard which all have to be first produced industrially. By recycling materials, the amount of energy used in manufacturing can be reduced, along with factory emissions.
What is the difference between reuse, recycling and recovery of vehicles?
Recycling is the collection of parts of the ELV and the process to transform them into materials used in the production of new vehicles or used for other purposes. Reuse is the use of the parts of end of life vehicles for the same purpose in other Nissan vehicles. Recovery represents the burning of the vehicle materials that cannot be recycled, for the generation of energy.
What is Nissan doing about environmentally friendly vehicles?
Nissan is promoting energy conservation and recycling activities through its European facilities improvements and operational procedures improvements. Nissan plants based in UK and Spain are working to reduce the waste in the plants by recycling, reuse and recovery activities. As a result of these actions, Nissan has already achieved more than 90% recycling rate for our plants that produce light commercial vehicles and passenger cars. Continuous efforts to improve the recycling rates are being made in all Nissan plants. Our plants located in UK (NMUK) and Spain (NMISA) introduced the international quality standard ISO 14001 for the production of the vehicles, in 1998. As a part of continuous improvement, NMUK plant has a wind farm at the plant. The generation of renewable energy cut the carbon dioxide emissions at power plants by more than 3000 tones per year.
In October 2005 NMUK installed and commenced generating electricity from six 660kW recycled wind turbines;
· Energy provided with be equivalent of 2600 UK homes
· CO2 reduction of 3,300 tones per year.
· First wind farm in the North East to be enclosed entirely within an industrial area
· 5% of the annual amount of energy of the plant is generated by the wind mills.
· Project praised by the Campaign for the Protection of Rural England (CPRE) for being in the urban environment.
· Wind farm has been used for NMUK’s community relations activities and support of the engineering educational scheme.
