    Nissan QashQai 2014 Part 2

    Yes, likely battery problem. If replaced last jun by tan chong, call them, they will replace it for free.

    I am on the third battery already. Each lasting average 16 to 17 months only. Totally stock as well, not even car camera or charging phone in car.

    Income and the type of Car

    Since you have 2 children, buy another property. Rent it out first. Buy a comfortable 2 litre car that cost probably $150k. Go nice holiday with your family...etc.

    Sounds like your car is stuck in 2nd or 3rd gear.

    I got it from lk performance Centre. It is at old toh tuck Road. 18" Rims and tyres cheaper than changing the 19 tyres. But old rims traded in. Contact them. I found them thru Carousell. Haha

    I have downsized to 18 inch. Using 235/50 R18. Use an online Tyre size calculator. As long as the rolling circumference is within 3%,should be OK. Now it looks more suv like. Many Tyre shops around. Better if you can trade in your current set. Hope the info helps.

    I think 1.2 battery would be more expensive because it supports the auto start stop. It's called EFB I think. Mine was the normal battery.
  8. I just can't help notice how strong the doors of the little silver van is. Not much dent whereas the bumper of the car was dented quite a bit. I was expecting the opposite, i.e. Side door of van to be badly dented from such an impact.

    Mine is 2.0. Original battery was 60ah. Replacement was 62ah. After hanging up, the assistance was here within 30 mins and it was replaced within 15 mins. Quite hassle free. But I realized that they did not connect to another battery when changing, so all settings was gone. Trip meter...etc.

    Ok, called. They will come to my car at my car park to change the battery. Battery was supposed to be $175,but got 50% discount coz within 2 years. Service fee $35. All in about $130. Lucky got 50%, else not worth. Outside battery shop probably can get cheaper and considering mine is emergency case and they come to me. Save me from driving somewhere, wait and bargain...etc.

    They do. If you call, they will make their way down immediately. I didn't want to wait and wanted them to come only in the morning. They say if u want them to come in the morning, call tomorrow morning coz it's different team. Night shift and day shift different team, I think. The car is in my office carpark.

    Thanks for the suggestion. My car is Jan 2015. No camera, no ice. No warning, just died. When I press the start button, it clicks but not enough to start engine. Cabin lights, radio comes on, albeit weaker. Will update tomorrow after I call tan chong road assistance to check on price.

    My battery just died on me today. Anybody called the nissan assistance before for battery change. Not too sure how much. I understand that for battery change within the second year at tan Chong, there is 50% discount. Not too sure tan Chong roadside assistance got discount or not. Or is it cheaper to get from outside battery shops that come to your stuck vehicle. Any advice appreciated.

    Sptan3, I tried that. The aircon switched on in the circulation mode. After 2 to 3 minutes, it jumps to outside air mode again. Always need to press each time we turn on the aircon. Does it happen to yours?
