The service was only 5k ago so I asked if this was normal with the reply of "yes, up to 1 litre every 1k is normal."
I will see what it drives like and try to remember to check in the next 1k but this seemed excessive which is why I searched and came upon this thread.
After the issue ongoing for some for nearly two years I am surprised the stance from Nissan on consumption is still the same.

the admission that 1litre per 1000km is acceptable is quit outrageous .
you could refer this to nissan customer sevices amd see what they say .
myself i would reject the car if this is all correct .
my own car has used one litre in 7000m , which i find excessive and unprecedented.

Though to be honest the engine still sounds the same to me as when it went in. Will see if it quietens down and also check the levels in 1k miles.
While there I also got my brake pads replaced as they were 'clunking' when braking and it seems QQ's eat tyres so may need two of them in 3 months (20 months old?).
Overall we think the QQ is great and perfect for our family. Though fuel consumption is higher than I was expecting (average 35mpg) and now feels like the 1.2 was not the right choice as it feels sluggish. Which is strange as when we first got it I'm sure it felt stronger.

On our holiday it used about 1/2 litre of oil.
When we got back the car went into the dealer (mid August) to have the software update done.
I thought all would be okay after this.
But, I checked the oil today & again it was below the bottom mark on the dipstick!!
I got straight onto the dealer, first off they asked had the oil level been topped up when the update was done, I presumed it had been...might not have!
Then the chap checked their computer log, it had had a 3ltr top up & warranty charge (the update) in August.
He went & spoke with his manager to check what needed to be done...to quote the manager "your piston rings are f**ked, we need to book your car in for 3 weeks, run some tests, speak to Nissan & hopefully they will agree to new engine"
No mention of a checklist or Nissan process to go through! Though from what others have said I won't hold my breath that Nissan will rollover that easy.
The dealer did say they are getting quite a few 1.2 engines back in at the moment.
After reading the bit about the cat convertor I'll make sure I raise that with them when I take it in.
One other thing, the battery completely packed up the other week! I had already booked it in for them to look at after it failed once.
They replaced the battery no problem
My QQ is a May/June 2015 model
