Coming to CVTs first brake pad change was done on my wife's Baleno CVT at 35000 kms.
Thanks Maverick for your response. I have a follow up post. It turns out that the service advisor misdiagnosed the need to replace the break pads - quoting my follow up post below:

Therefore, there is no need to change the pads now.

My regular advisor just did a visual inspection the other day and told me that the pads have worn out. I'm not technically well versed so I believed his words. The Manager proactively told me that they are seeking explanation as to why the advisor suggested me to replace the pads when it was not needed.

Anyway, I'm glad that I don't need to replace the pads every 6000 kms.

Seems this is the default behaviour of Renault and Nisan cars with button start stop. Try this: start the engine, lower the window. Stop the engine, and without opening any door, try to roll the window up. In my Triber it used to work until one of the doors was opened.
Irritating, but it is what it is!

As for the neck rest bit, I would suggest consulting an orthopaedic doctor before getting the neck rest. From what I have experienced first hand, it creates more issues than solutions. I have cervical spondylitis and neck rest are a big no for me.

The first time around, the Nissan service centre (Youwe Nissan at Okhla, New Delhi) returned the car after resetting the error, and no other action. In January, they cleaned the injectors, reset the error and returned the car, without pinpointing why the problem happened.

The friend travel outstation as well as drives long distances for work, and he is now terrified that the car will give up on him without notice.

I can see madmax_rak suffered a similar issue below...

Consistency, Reliability and Durability are the key attributes when it comes to products like Car. Hence established Brands charge the price premium. While this doesn't mean that their products will not have any field issues, but response would be usually faster since they have relative large population of vehicles on road from where they draw the experience and trained manpower at the dealership.

The MID pics posted by you show the malfunctioning to multiple systems. This is very unlikely in a short span of time. Suggest
(1) Ask the dealership to check the functioning of Engine Control Unit (ECU) which is a main interface with other systems. If you are comfortable for DIY check the same yourself as well with OBD.
(2) Get the full software scan done at the Dealership
(3) Show the Car to some other Nissan dealership
(4) Write to the Company on its Social media handle if none of the above works.

Re: Nissan Magnite Review

I can empathize with you. The bigger challange is that the service center guys have no clue. And frankly, Nissan does not seem to care.

The solution I would suggest is to sell it off and go to a more reliable brand.

I sold off my Magnite in one year time. Here was my post.

Re: Nissan Magnite Review

I have an update from Nissan India regarding every Magnite XE and XL variant car produced till December 2023.

They are conducting a voluntary recall to retrofit something called "Front door handle sensors". While the specific details of the enhancement aren't explicitly mentioned in the communication, from what I have been told, it is something related to the auto door unlock in case of a crash. As per the communication, it will take 40 minutes to install and will be free of cost.

Official notice given on the website has been attached with this post.

Re: Nissan Magnite Review

I have a 1 month old Nissan Magnite turbo CVT which has clocked somewhere around 2000km. I found 2 things I wanted to share in this forum just to see if anyone else is facing a similar issue.
  1. The brakes were weak during the PDI. I asked the service center to make it right before I take delivery and when I went for taking delivery, the brakes seemed fine. However, during the time I was using it for the past 2k Km, hard brakings are not confidence inspiring. The car when braked hard, would slow down, but the final stopping has a slight 1-2 second delay, when the brakes don't bite and after 1 second, it stops fine. It's slightly unnerving as you miss your estimate of where your car would stop. I have a Swift as my other car and the brakes work perfectly there.
  2. The headlights have a dark bar in the light beam. I don't know if it is due to the LED Biprojector beams being misaligned. Have attached a video of it.



Does anyone else have these problems?

I am not sure about your brake issue - I haven't noticed such behaviour as far as I am aware, though I haven't done a controlled hard braking to be sure.

Does your swift have ABS?

What you are saying sounds quite a bit like what the ABS system would do when you are about to lock up the tyres and slip/slide? You may also hear the metallic grinding/rubbing (not squeaking like a a gate or metal joint without oil, but a deeper metallic sound, like a heavy metal table/almirah is being pulled/pushed on a concrete/cemented floor.) sound if that is happening.

As for the second issue about the headlight - its there in my car too. I have checked it quite closely - including aligning the beams myself - and to the best of my knowledge its because of the design and not something you can fix.

The high-beam LED isn't aligned to overlap with the low-beam led and thats what appears as the black bar that you are talking about. The issue is more visible because the lens/reflector combo has a tight spread and so keep to their alignments without "spreading" the light to allow for the overlap.

Re: Nissan Magnite Review

Yes, probably it was the ABS only as I can't see this issue when I am not braking hard.
As for the headlight issue, Nissan should have corrected this at source. A black bar across headlight beam is a distraction.
But thanks for confirming.

Re: Nissan Magnite Review

If the ABS was kicking in just before stopping, wouldn't the ABS indication on the console blink?
Anyway, I too had the same observation with my car. Even the service engineer couldn't give a solid justification. As a precaution now, I make it a practice to maintain sufficient distance with the car in front during bumper to bumper traffic.

I haven't checked the console...

But according to the user manual (page 2-10) ABS light will only illuminate after the engine is running when there is a potential ABS-malfunction. So I think blinking-ABS light is not expected when ABS engages during braking.

Re: Nissan Magnite Review

Yes, you are right. I just checked the user manual. VDC warning light in the instrument panel flashes during VDC operation. This feature is absent with ABS.
Thanks for the update!

Any MID indicator is a warning of malfunction in any car or bike. If your brakes are working in order and ABS is engaging properly, no ABS indicator will be seen.
Secondly, ABS doesn't engage all the time. Under normal circumstances, the brakes work like in any non ABS car. Only under undulating or wet sefaces at higher speeds does the ABS engage. I hope this helps.

Re: Nissan Magnite Review

As far as braking is concerned, try braking hard every now and then (not too often), when no one is around. I'm not sure, if this will work, but I've seen a friend of mine do it and that sort of helped him find the brake bite to be a bit better than before. Hope this helps!
