Has anyone else spotted the article in the September Which magazine stating that there is a recall out on 3.0 litre models over concerns with the starter motor cable which could cause stalling or in extreme cases an under bonnet fire.

Nissan and Jaguar recall cars including Qashqai and Juke Jaguar F-Pace poses potential fire risk 29 July 2016 Nissan has started a recall of several of its cars, including the Juke and X-Trail (pictured) Nissan and Jaguar have instigated voluntary recalls for some of the UK's best-known vehicles, including the Nissan Qashqai - the UK's fifth best-selling car. Jaguar has warned of a problem with the F-Pace, its first ever SUV, concerning the incorrect routing of the start motor cable. Possible consequences, as reported by the European Commission's Rapid Alert System, include the vehicle stalling, melting of the starter motor cable sheathing and surrounding parts and, in extreme circumstances, an under-bonnet fire. Nissan has started a voluntary recall of the Qashqai, Juke, X-trail and Pulsar models because of concerns that a faulty rear oxygen sensor may fail to trigger an alert should the car produce an excessive amount of exhaust gasses. 7,393 Nissan vehicles in the UK are affected. The Qashqai and the X-Trail have previously been highlighted by Which? as two of the most polluting cars in the UK, as both create a lot of harmful NOx (oxides of nitrogen). Which? reviews cars like no one else. While our rigorous lab testing reveals a car's true emissions and mpg, our car reviews also include feedback gathered from thousands of owners to find out which vehicles are reliable and trustworthy, and which will simply generate massive repair bills. Which cars are affected? Jaguar F-Pace: cars with the 3.0-litre diesel engine are affected. Nissan Qashqai, Juke, X-Trail, Pulsar: models manufactured between 2014 and 2016 may be affected. The F-Pace is a large luxury SUV, and the first SUV produced by Jaguar What action are the manufacturers taking? Jaguar has begun a voluntary safety recall of the affected models. Nissan has also begun a voluntary recall this month and is contacting owners of affected cars. A Nissan spokesperson said: 'Nissan is conducting a voluntary recall campaign on Juke, Pulsar, Qashqai and X-Trail to re-program the ECM (electronic control module) to correct an issue with the monitoring of the rear oxygen (O2) sensor. 'Nissan began notifying customers in July, asking owners to bring their vehicle to an authorized Nissan retailer where they will re-program the ECM at no cost to customers.' How to check if you're affected If you want to check if you're affected, contact the manufacturer: Jaguar customer services: 0345 303 2303 or [email protected] Nissan customer services: 0330 123 1231 or [email protected]

Yes there are posts on here already about this, the recall only affects the 3 litre diesel version, contact your local dealer who will book you in.

My 3.0dS was in the dealers to have the suspension creak fixed last week. They also updated the ICTP software but the cable routing to the starter motor was fine. Presumably it doesn't affect all 3.0d cars - mine was built in late June.

I didn't know about this recall - will mention it to them tomorrow when they fix my mis-aligned door.

What software update did they do? Did you have to ask them?

I had the car booked in for the creak fix but when they called me a couple of days before I asked them to check for software updates.
When I dropped the car off at the dealer they said that they had checked and there was a software update. I don't know if they would have checked if I hadn't asked.
I haven't noticed any difference since, but that is probably just me not looking very carefully!
