Default Re: The Nissan Kicks Crossover. EDIT: Launched at Rs. 9.55 lakhs

I did a 170 kms short trip today on Nissan Kicks Diesel. It was a route with less truck traffic and boy it was bliss to drive on such a road. I got to use Cruise Control for around 30 kms each way, the highest Iíve used it till now, and it was so relaxing to cruise at 85-90 kmph. Plus, the positive impact on FE was good to see. I got 19.2 kmpl as per MID (the reading on MID is pretty accurate). However, the AC was not working fine. I set the AC in Auto mode at 23 degrees, but it felt suffocating inside. Now that I think, it may be due to outside temperature less than 23 degrees today.

I think the Nissan dealerships are overwhelmed with the response they are getting for Magnite. I registered my interest on Nissan website and selected a dealer closer to my location. No one has contacted me from last 1 week. I even tried to call few dealerships, one of them gave another number which the person was not lifting and not responding on WhatsApp. Another dealer was not lifting the call at all. I am in my hometown and there is not dealership here to visit in person.

If this is the level of sales response, I wonder what will be the service response. Literally losing customers, Nissan has to pull up it's socks and get this fixed ASAP. I even emailed the customer service today morning, no response yet. Not even acknowledgement email. I wanted to know about offers and discounts, the online sites are showing 50k+10k discounts. No mention of corporate discounts or dealer level discounts anywhere.

Just an update on my issue. I was finally contacted by Nissan customer service today and they arranged for a call back from Gachibowli dealer. The dealer has shared inventory details and quotation. Good to know there are people from Nissan in this forum looking after their company.

Hi Guys. A peculiar thing is happening with my Kicks. While I was on a drive on the highway, the AC vents started throwing out warm air and there was a slight burning smell in as if the heater was on. I was driving on a chilly morning with outside weather being around 8 degrees. Anyone else noticed this problem? Kindly note the AC was not on.

Update on the repair work. They did a fabulous job in the painting work. The total cost came around ₹44k and most of it was covered under insurance.The Nissan Kicks Crossover. EDIT: Launched at Rs. 9.55 lakhs-6475b15185354acf8e9ebe070a82165d.jpeg

What was the (Auto)AC temperature you had set. I guess the AC was trying to maintain temperature as per your command. Since it was 8 degrees outside it was warming up the interior. Burning smell is not persistent is Okay IMO.

The paint work looks flawless BTW.

The AC was set at 22 degrees but it was not ON. Does it try to maintain the temperature even in the OFF state?

About the paint work, I was very apprehensive about the paint work, but it is just perfect.

Might be a silly suggestion but happened to my friend's indica - please check the fan on opening the bonnet to maku sure nothing is stuck. In my friend's case, a piece of cloth was left there after service.

Sorry I seem to have erred in not reading your post thoroughly, especially where you mentioned that the AC was not switched on.

Since your car was freshly repainted, some foreign material may he been left/ dropped in engine bay (it could also be over-sprayed paint in near engine). Better get it checked if it's persistent. If not, leave aside any worry & enjoy your car.

Thank you for the solutions provided.

I would also like to add that this problem only arises while driving on the highway when I drive within the city, there is no such problem.

I presume your recirculation mode was set to fresh air mode when this happened. See if this still happens when recirculation mode is enabled. When set to fresh air mode, outside air will enter your cabin even if your AC is off. This happens in all cars.
The volume of air through the vents will increase as your speed increases. And hence you notice it more in the highway compared to the city. If the set temperature is higher than the outside temperature the system will let hot air in.

Hi, my AC was turned off when this happened. Also, when I turned the AC on, it stopped throwing warm air. Letís see if I get the same problem, I have a big road trip coming up this Sunday.

Hello all, update from the long 750 kms on Sunday. I did not face the issue of warm air out of AC vents. It was a smooth drive mostly. However, there was dense fog after Ajmer which was pretty scary.
I filled up diesel from Reliance bunk and the engine was noticeably smoother. But, there was no impact on the mileage, MID shows 18.2 kmpl.

Mostly routine tasks. There weren't any major issues in the car, except for the Horn (instead of dual, it used to go mono at times). Thanks to @jeganatu and Nissan India (for providing the service wise component changes), I was better aware of the necessary changes.

Only additional things that I got done was Pollen Filter Change (not done at 20k) and Brake Caliper Cleaning and Greasing. Interestingly, the moment I mentioned of Nissan service calculator to the SA, he started terming the service components/changes as Suggested (Mandated) and 'Value Added' (Meant for milking customers)

In addition, came across a useful link for the Value added services pushed at us during routine servicing of our vehicles : https://www.autocarindia.com/auto-fe...service-403593

Happy Motoring!

Hopefully the AC problem didn't recur.

Silver looks sharp on this car
