BOUGHT MY 2004 NAVARA SECOND HAND JUST 9 MONTHS AGO WITH 40,000 MILES ON THE CLOCK. 10,000 MILES LATER AND THE ENGINE MUNCHES A CONROD AND TAKES THE CRANK WITH IT! MY VEHICLE HAS BEEN SERVICED REGULARLY ALTHOUGH NOT BY A NISSAN DEALER (TO EXPENSIVE!) AND HAS NOT BEEN GIVEN A HARD LIFE AT ALL. 50,000 MILES + 2 1/2 YEARS OLD AND DO YOU THINK NISSAN WARRANTY EVEN WANT TO KNOW? YOU GUESSED....THEY COULDNT GIVE A TOSS! "SORRY MATE, NO SERVICE HISTORY NO WARRANTY!". £3000 LATER AND ITS BACK ON THE ROD BUT DO I TRUST IT NOT TO HAPPEN AGAIN? DO I HELL AS LIKE! SURELY ITS ABOUT TIME NISSAN STOOD UP AND ACKNOWLEDGED THERE IS A PROBLEM WITH THIS ENGINE AND PARTICULARLY WITH THE CONRODS/BIGENDS FAILING.

as far as nissan are concerned, you havent serviced your car at all!

did you keep the recipts from the servicing? if so - you MIGHT have a case - erupoean law now says that you dont have to get it serviced by nissan, just to the same standard. if you can prove that you have, you might be able to get warrenty things done.

The european law will protect you, if you have al the receipts.
MY NISSAN DEALER actually told me when I was picking the keys to my new truck up that I DO NOT have to have it serviced by themselves, but as long the service history is documented at ANY VAT REGISTERED SERVICE CENTRE using GENUINE or EQUIVALENT QUALITY parts (well.. how do you prove it is same quality? I would play safe and stay with Nissan parts), your warranty is FULLY VALID! Now, you suss it out mate.
