Nissan Emissions Claims

Thousands of Nissan vehicles have allegedly been fitted with a defeat device to cheat emissions tests. Both diesel and petrol Nissans are affected, and you may be able to claim thousands in compensation.

Here at emissions.co.uk, we are making sure car manufacturers are held accountable for their lies in relation to car emissions. A new investigation is being carried out into Nissan and their use of “defeat devices” in a number of their UK vehicles.

Initial indications show that up to 600,000 Nissan diesel vehicles and up to 100,000 Nissan petrol vehicles could have been fitted with a notorious defeat device that has been seen in the Volkswagen Dieselgate scandal.

If you own a Nissan and would like to hold the car manufacturer to account for their potential lies, the panel at emissions.co.uk can help. We are inviting UK residents to register their interest in filing a claim for compensation against Nissan.

What is the Nissan Emissions Scandal?

Nissan made the news in June 2020 when claims surfaced about the car manufacturer installing a so-called “defeat device” in their vehicles. Similar defeat devices were found in Volkswagen vehicles which sparked the now infamous dieselgate scandal.

These defeat devices interfere or completely disable emissions controls under real-world driving conditions. When the car is being tested in the lab, however, this defeat device kicks in and ensure the emissions of a dangerous pollutant, NOx, is much lower.

Real-world emissions by vehicles with defeat devices are a lot higher than the laboratory tests and, therefore, a lot higher than what was promised when purchasing the car.

We believe this practice is wrong, as NOx released by cars are extremely harmful to our health and the environment. NOx contributes to various respiratory diseases, cancer, acid rain and smog. Pollution from cars is the biggest contributor to NOx in our air.

There are suggestions that 700,000 Nissan vehicles could be affected in the UK – 600,000 diesel and 100,000 petrol. It is the first time petrol vehicles could be implicated in the emissions scandal. The Nissan Qashqai in particular is potentially breaching emissions limits by up to 15 times in the UK.

What would the Nissan emission claim relate to?

The panel at emissions.co.uk are currently investigating the Nissan emission claim. The claim itself would focus on seeking compensation from Nissan for deceit, breach of consumer protection laws, breach of contract and breaches of the Competition Act.

If Nissan admits to the wrongdoing, they will have suppressed clean emissions technology and concealed the action of installing a defeat device from regulators and customers. This means that you, as a customer, were misled when choosing whether to purchase a Nissan vehicle.

The reason for this potential lie is simple – monetary gain for Nissan. This has potentially led to more of the dangerous pollutant, NOx, being pumped into the UK.

 

Which Nissan vehicles are affected?

There is an ongoing probe to find out exactly which models have been affected. Early indications show that models that might be affected include:

  • Qashqai
  • Note
  • Juke
  • X-Trail
  • Manufactured between 2009 and 2018

Our panel can help determine whether your particular vehicle has been affected.

 

How much can I receive for a Nissan Emissions claim?

There is currently no guidance on how much compensation Nissan owners can receive for an emissions claim. However, as a rough indication, payouts for the Volkswagen dieselgate scandal in the USA, Canada, Australia and Germany have ranged from £1,140 - £7,000 per driver.

Our panel will keep our clients updated in relation to any rulings on compensation.
