Hi Kea we tried the other key and the key itself doesn't open the doors we went onto tin ternet and found others with same probs also in the handbook/manual
"In cold and wet climates door lock and door mechanisms may not work properly due to freezing conditions" Thanks for the reply though

the handbook/manual it says
"In cold and wet climates door lock and door mechanisms may not work properly due to freezing conditions"

Did they specifically tell you that in the showroom ? If not, DEMAND compensation. This country has cold and wet climates and Freezing conditions every year ! :( :(
The vehicle you were sold is not 'fit for purpose', and contravenes the Sale Of Goods Act 1979.
GET TOUGH WITH THESE PEOPLE ! >:( >:( >:(
Hi below (from a different post i put on) is the info i sent to the dealership
they rang within 10 minutes when manic talked to him he seemed surprised that there was any mention in the hand book we sent by e mail the letter below to head office which motoring and on here on the letter below I have mentioned the not fit for use side of it also if you were unlucky enough to have a serious accident during the lock out how would you get out of the car
It goes in monday to have " special grease put on it" I really feel a bit sorry for the ground floor workers who are trying to solve what the factory should be doing
we would have got another nissan note but we recently got a small caravan and the nissan wouldn't tow it thanks for your post
Would have given a higher rating if we had picked the car up in summer thought it was great when we picked it up everything the road tests had remarked on where true
until we had the first frost 1 week from new ( feb 3rd 2010 picked up )
Drivers door wouldn't open either with central locking or key it has been the same every time it gets below freezing...
My wife got the car through a disability scheme but luckily I drive the car for her although she can drive as well you have to climb across from the passenger seat. It takes 1/2 to 1&1/2 hours to right itself... If I wasn't around my wife couldn't use the car in any cold snap
what about the disabled who are not lucky enough to have somebody who can climb over the seat to drive.
also if you have an accident where you were hurt during this lock out how could you get across to the passenger seat if you had a broken arm or leg. Rang the dealer on the first occasion and was told if you can't wait to book it in call the R. A.C. assist they may be able to sort it out sooner
yet when you look at the manual that comes with the car it says and I quote
"In cold and wet climates door lock and door mechanisms may not work properly due to freezing conditions" The Nissan Note always opened with central locking even when it was minus 8 surly the car is not fit for any country where it may dip below freezing I think its going to be a long 3 year lease.
