The Kashkai body has no congenital foci of corrosion. He does not rust even the trunk lid under the trim, like many cars. Therefore, traces of corrosion are obvious evidence of poor body repair.
Paint and varnish coating Kashkaya of the first generation does not have the thickest and most durable layer, chips and surface scratches appear quite quickly. Although this has long been the norm for many manufacturers. But Kashkai's body resists corrosion very well.

Although this has long been the norm for many manufacturers. But Kashkai's body resists corrosion very well.
On all Qashqai of the first generation (both pre-reform and restyled), there are cases of fogging headlights. The tightness of their bodies is violated from time to time, for this does not even need an external mechanical effect. So this is normal.
Nissan Qashqai Russian and English assembly: what is the difference?
If any lamps do not work in the left lamp (most often it is a brake light), then most likely the board burned out in it. It stands very close to the body niche and overheats over time. The board is available as a separate spare part, the replacement will cost about 3, 000 rubles.
The original windshield is rather weak. A crack on it can appear even from a small pebble. Most competitors are doing much better with this.
After a couple of years of operation, the trapezoid of the front wipers may fail due to critical wear of its rods. Significantly delay this moment will help a simple rule: do not be lazy to remove a pile of snow from the windshield yourself, do not torment the wipers. Replacing the trapezoid will cost a decent 16, 000 rubles. Fortunately, some services have mastered the repair of rods. For this work they ask from 4000 rubles.
The quality of trim elements Nissan Qashqai on pre-reform vehicles leaves much to be desired. The steering wheel peels off quite quickly, paint on plastic parts, and the seat trim is also wiped. Therefore, as the interior is not so difficult to identify twisted mileage.
With restyling, the quality of the trim has significantly improved, and most of the sores have been cured. With restyling, the quality of the trim has significantly improved, and most of the sores have been cured. Related Materials
Nissan Qashqai 2006–2013: strengths and weaknesses
In the risk group, the steering column cable loop, over time, it is frayed. Usually because of this, the multimedia and cruise control keys located on the steering wheel fail. Also in this loop are the wires of the driver's airbag and switches for external lighting. Replacing the entire wiring harness costs about 8, 000 rubles.
Wiring connectors that are located at the driver’s feet under the front pillar trim are also often oxidized and rot. This area requires increased attention on many age models. It accumulates a lot of condensate from the vapors, this is especially pronounced in the winter. The connectors connect massive wiring harnesses, on which almost all the electrics on the rear left side of the body hang, including the fuel pump power supply and the exterior lighting of the stern. Any circuit can refuse. Depending on the degree of damage to the connectors, wiring restoration costs from 1, 000 to 20, 000 rubles. But even the upper bar is still noticeably cheaper than replacing the harnesses.
A common occurrence is a fan fan failure. It becomes clogged with dirt, the load on the motor increases significantly, and it burns out. Replacing a motor costs 12, 000 rubles. Also occasionally there are cases of combustion of the compressor clutch of the air conditioner a. Fortunately, it is subject to repair and is available as a separate spare part.
In an all-wheel drive system, the angular gearbox is characterized by the greatest wear, since its gears rotate constantly in any mode of transmission when the car is moving. Only 400 grams of oil is poured into the unit, so it is advisable to change it (it costs only 750 rubles) every 30, 000 km and monitor the seals. Cuffs do not flow as often, but if you miss this point, the gearbox will fail very quickly.
The remaining nodes of the four-wheel drive transmission do not bother with breakdowns with reasonable operation. For example, the universal joint crosses wear out only after 100, 000 kilometers. Their replacement will cost about 12, 000 rubles.
Elements of the front suspension require special attention. The rear silent blocks of the front subframe (replacement costs 13, 000 rubles) serve only 40, 000 km. It is good that they are available as separate parts. Even less (30, 000 km) live rear silent blocks of front levers. Ball bearings go a little more. Fortunately, the silent blocks and ball can also be replaced separately, it will cost 7, 000 and 10, 000 rubles, respectively. The average life of the front shock absorbers is about 80, 000 km (replacement will cost 17, 000 rubles), but their thrust bearings will have to be replaced earlier (replacement costs 6, 000 rubles).

Steering racks: malfunctions and restoration
Sore spots of the rear suspension - silent blocks in the breakup levers and bolts for their adjustment. On age machines, rubber-metal elements begin to rot and tear. Alas, inside them sour bolts and wheel alignment adjustment. Replacing the silent blocks will cost 6500 rubles. In fairness, I note that not only Qashqai suffers from this. The rear shock absorbers regularly serve at least 60, 000 km (replacement costs 11, 000 rubles).
Qashqai has an electric power steering system with a conventional mechanical rack and controls integrated in the steering column. Of all the nodes, the main trouble is the rail, which begins to knock after 60, 000 km. It is expensive, but subject to budget and quality restoration (15 000 - 20 000 rubles). Also steering rods and tips do not last long. Fortunately, the market has original spare parts separately and solid substitutes. Replacing the rods will cost 10, 000 rubles, and tips - 9, 500 rubles.
A lot of dirt gets into the rear brake calipers, which makes them sour. The reason is the poor location and ill-conceived design of the nodes. With each replacement of the pads, it is very important to do the prevention of brake mechanisms.
The HR16DE 1.6 gasoline engine is time-tested and is well known in many Renault-Nissan models. The motor has a good reputation and does not cause much trouble. Qashqai with this engine with a reserve overcome the bar of 200, 000 km. The timing chain is usually changed when the unit is overhauled.
The HR16DE engine is prone to occur in oil scraper piston rings. This is possible not earlier than 100, 000 km. This is due to a long drive at low speeds (especially for cars with a CVT) and too long oil change intervals. It is advisable to reduce it from the manufacturer's recommended 15, 000 km to at least 10, 000 km. The HR16DE engine is prone to occur in oil scraper piston rings.

It is advisable to reduce it from the manufacturer's recommended 15, 000 km to at least 10, 000 km.
The average resource of the rear engine mounts 1.6 and 2.0 is only 30, 000 - 40, 000 km. Its destruction will immediately usher in a significant increase in the level of vibration in the body. Replacing the support will cost about 4200 rubles.
Reliability rating of car engines: two liters of problems
Also, on both motors a hinged belt quickly surrenders. At the same time, his videos live longer. For the replacement of the belt will take about 2200 rubles. But the rollers can not be changed in the assembly, but only their bearings can be updated (2700 rubles for the treatment of one roller).
Engine radiator 1.6 and 2.0 suffer from corrosion. On machines older than five to seven years, it can lead to a node leak.
The petrol engine 2.0 of the MR20DE series is also known for many models of the concern, but not as reliable as the younger 1.6.
The MR20DE engine features a thin-walled cylinder head. Even with a small constriction of the spark plugs, their wells can crack. As a result, antifreeze will enter the oil. In addition, motorists sometimes meet factory marriage of heads - microcracks. They make themselves known only during operation.
The MR20DE, like the HR16DE, is prone to piston rings. But the timing chain of the 2.0 engine, unlike 1.6, lengthens much earlier, sometimes after 80, 000 km. Also in services periodically see cars with MR20DE with a leak of the pan, which is mounted on the sealant. The MR20DE, like the HR16DE, is prone to piston rings. But the timing chain of the 2.0 engine, unlike 1.6, lengthens much earlier, sometimes after 80, 000 km. Also in services periodically see cars with MR20DE with a leak of the pan, which is mounted on the sealant.
The cylinder block also has thin walls, so the motor does not tolerate overheating very well. In addition, the phenomenon of deformation of the fourth cylinder is common, when servicemen slightly tighten the bolts of the box to the engine when installing it. When the motor overheats, it often warps the mating surfaces of the head and block, and sometimes cracks even appear on the necks of the crankshaft.
The Jatco variator of the JF015E series was mounted in tandem with the 1.6 engine. For the sake of size reduction, this unit was equipped with a two-stage planetary gear. The first stage operates at speeds up to 100 km / h, and then the second is involved. The design turned out to be very intricate and moody. On average, the resource of this variator rarely exceeds 100, 000 km, and many problems can begin after 20, 000 km.
CVTs: the whole truth about their (un) reliability
First of all, the bearings of the cones and their seats in the variator housing wear out on the JF015E. Metal chips are distributed throughout the hydraulic system, clogging the solenoids in the valve body and the pressure reducing valve in the oil pump. The oil pressure drops, and this finally finishes off the variator. The JF015E also quickly wears out the internal elements in the cones, which are responsible for their movement. They produce an extra fatal amount of metal shavings. The belt formally has a decent resource. However, due to a drop in oil pressure in the hydraulic system, it begins to slip and wear out actively.
Repair variator JF015E costs from 150 000 rubles. At the same time, it is enough for a short time, no matter how professional the master may be. Therefore, servicemen are advised to buy a new variator. It costs about 200, 000 rubles from independent suppliers. Buying a contract unit is very dangerous. No one can guarantee that this capricious design will live long enough.
The first calls that warn of the near death of any CVT are jerks and shock switches. Very often they can be caught when starting the car from a place. Also, increased noise during the operation of the variator and loss of acceleration dynamics should alert. The first calls that warn of the near death of any CVT are jerks and shock switches. Very often they can be caught when starting the car from a place. Also, increased noise during the operation of the variator and loss of acceleration dynamics should alert.
CVT series JF011E stands on Qashqai with a 2.0 engine. This is a very famous unit, which was put on many models of the Renault-Nissan concern, as well as on Mitsubishi cars. JF011E is still in use today. Paired with a 2.0 engine, this variator has an average resource of 150, 000 - 200, 000 km.
JF011E has no characteristic weaknesses. In old age, he begins a natural critical wear of the main elements: bearings of cones; valves in the valve body; oil pump. CVT JF011E is in repair. A high- quality restoration of this variator costs 150, 000 - 180, 000 rubles, and it lasts for a very long period of operation. The new unit will cost much more.
To extend the life of any variator, it is important to periodically change the oil in it (an operation costs about 10, 000 rubles). For example, Jatco recommends doing this every 30, 000 km under heavy operating conditions, which include urban traffic. It is also important to keep the external cooling radiator of the unit clean.
In manual gearboxes, it is important to change the oil every 90, 000 km. The operation costs about 2000 rubles. Once this interval was provided for in the factory service regulations, but later it was canceled. Periodic oil changes will maintain the high reliability of Kashkaya boxes.

Manual gearboxes have proven themselves very well. Motley failures are associated exclusively with inadequate operation and are not systemic in nature. The five-speed gearbox relies on the 1.6 engine, and the 2.0 engine - 6-speed.
