I wasn't actually told if my model (Nissan Juke. Acenta 1.6 & 13 reg) has a belt or chain; which was what I wanted to know. As for the recall, I'm in the UK, did the recall include UK models?

If it is actually a timing chain and not a belt; then possibly never. Timing chains last many hundreds of thousands of Km's (Miles). They should have an automatic tensioner and slippers that will need to be replaced at certain intervals. If you have your original service book it will tell you when to change the timing chain/belt.

Update: on the 2011-13 year models there is a recall for timing chains, for a free fix. Due to a faulty component. Book your vehicle in to a dealership and ask them to check it for all recall campaigns. If any are required they should be fixed free by a dealer.

Not all of them were on the recall. If you call Nissan with you’re VIN number they’ll tell you if it’s on the recall. They may have a website dedicated to it too now. I have a 2013 too, love it!

Timing chains are usually lifetime parts, but that’s never the case most of the time. MAYBE on a Toyota, but on most of the models that use them it’s usually done within ~100k miles, give or take. That doesn’t always happen, but that’s what commonly happens. Even on a Toyota I’d still check it at 100k to be sure it’s intact so if it has an issue, I can get to it before it breaks.

That said, you can tell if it's an interference engine by the engine code. Nissan is usually interference.

MR16DDT engines have known timing issues so if you own a 2011-13 Juke it may be a good idea to replace it to know for sure. The other common engine code is HR16DE. Unless you have a Nismo Juke, do not worry about the VR38DETT.

Most timing chain engines are interference, so if the chain breaks it’s going to damage the block and pistons, destroying the engine. Unless you want a new motor, the chain needs to be replaced when it begins to fail. Some of them are still non-interference where it just disables the engine, but Nissans are usually interference designs.
