Nissan Diesel Emissions Claims

Have you owned or leased a diesel Nissan between 2009 and 2018? You could be owed thousands in Nissan diesel compensation after it is alleged the manufacturer fitted emissions altering devices in their vehicles.

Potentially thousands of UK diesel Nissan vehicles have been fitted with what is now known as a “defeat device” between 2009 and 2018. We want to make sure that, if this is proven to be true, Nissan are held responsible for their lies in relation to the diesel emissions.

Our Nissan diesel claims legal panel are carrying out investigations, and initial indications show that up to 600,000 UK diesel Nissan vehicles could have been affected over the nine-year period.

If you believe you could have been affected, you can check your eligibility on our free-to-use registration checker. Please visit our partner website,, to use this checker.


What is the Nissan Diesel Emissions Scandal?

The diesel emissions saga first made headlines in 2015, when the original Dieselgate scandal was born. This involved the Volkswagen Group who admitted to installing “defeat devices” into 11 million of their vehicles worldwide. This was after USA regulators had found irregularities between emissions output when being tested in a lab compared to in real-world conditions.

Many industry experts at the time believed that it was not only Volkswagen that could be implicated in the scandal, and their predictions could be turning out true. Nissan first made Dieselgate headlines in June 2020 when claims were made against the manufacturer installing a so-called “defeat device” in their vehicles.

These defeat devices work when the vehicle is being tested in a lab for regulatory purposes. The device disable certain engine controls when it is being tested to ensure that diesel emissions output are below regulatory levels.

When the car is taken out of the lab, however, the defeat device automatically switches off, and the diesel emissions output is much higher. This can potentially lead to the car being wrongly advertised and consumers being misled.

Our legal panel believe this is wrong, as the pollutant in question is Nitrogen Oxide (NOx). NOx contributes to various respiratory diseases, cancer, acid rain and smog. This means Nissan vehicles could have been polluting UK air much more than advertised for nine years.

It has been reported that the Nissan Qashqai could have breached emissions limits by up to 15 times regulatory limits in the UK. This is why our panel believe it is important to bring forward Nissan Emission claims.


What is the law behind the Nissan emission claim?

Our legal panel are currently taking on claimants to join our Group Litigation Order. The claim itself would focus on seeking compensation from Nissan for their lies in relation to their diesel vehicles. In particular, this claim could call upon claims for deceit, a breach of consumer protection laws, a breach of contract, and breaches of the competition act.

If Nissan admit their potential wrongdoing, they will have purposefully suppressed clean emissions for monetary gain. This means, you, as a customer could have been lied to while also been exposed to more of the dangerous pollutant, NOx.

The Environmental Impact

Human Health

NOx contributes to various respiratory diseases, cancer, acid rain and smog. Pollution from cars is the biggest contributor to NOx in our air.

Premature Deaths

Air pollution is estimated to cause up to 36,000 premature deaths in the UK each year.

Child Deaths

The WHO estimated that in 2016, 600,000 children died from acute lower respiratory infections caused by polluted air.

Affect on Crops

High levels of nitrogen dioxide are harmful to vegetation - damaging foliage, decreasing growth or reducing crop yields.

Which Nissan Vehicles Are Affected?

The Nissan Diesel Claim is still in its infancy. This means there is an ongoing investigation to find out exactly which models have been affected. Early suggestions from our legal panel show that models that could be affected include:

  • Qashqai
  • Note
  • Juke
  • X-Trail
  • Manufactured between 2008 and 2018
  • Diesel

Our expert panel of Nissan Diesel claim solicitors can help determine whether your particular vehicle has been affected.


How much can I receive for a Nissan Emissions Diesel claim?

There is currently no guidance on how much compensation Nissan owners can receive for an emissions claim. Having said this, over 100,000 UK Emissions claims have now been settled and paid out in the UK.

In addition to this compensation for the Volkswagen dieselgate scandal in the USA, Canada, Australia and Germany have ranged from £1,140 - £7,000 per driver.
