I have a 2008...

I have a 2008 1.6 qashqai that I am currently trying to sell. I am regularly asked has the timing chain been replaced which it hasn't . Is there a mileage at which it should be changed of has the main dealer where it has always been serviced missed this ?

Mechanic's Assistant: How many miles on the car? How responsive has your car been lately?

70000. it is running fine

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '08 Nissan?

Visia

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?

There is nothing wrong with it and has just been serviced but potential buyers keep asking

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

No just that question

Ok on this engine there is no service interval on the timing chain .this means that there is no change needed .it is supposed to last the life of the engine
