I don't think anyone here can give you a definite answer as we don't have all the information as to when each revision of the housing was issued. However, IMHO, I would be very doubtful that a 2020 model had the latest part fitted on the production line as it is surely to new for that, so unless the seller can prove otherwise, ie that the latest part has since been fitted, I would suggest you have to assume it has not and the car could also be susceptible to it failing. However, for approximately £420 you can get the latest housing fitted and then know for sure. (Marshall Nissan Maidstone charged me that price in early January to have this work done).SL7 wrote: ↑Sat Feb 10, 2024 12:02 am Hi all,
Just about to buy a 1.3 Nissan QQ N-Connecta from Marshall Nissan. It's a Dec 2020 (70) plate.
I'm really worried about the issue and when asking the dealer they dismissed it and said the housing is fine.
Does anyone know when Nissan updated their thermostat housing and whether the car I'm looking at would fall into one of the ones in the risk category? Or do we not know enough?
Is it easy for the service department at the dealership to let me know which housing my car has, or would they need to take the car apart to do so?
Remember, salesmans job is to sell. They will say what they think you want to hear. Unless they 100% prove it has the newest part it means it does not.
