Qashqai 2.0 litre petrol, cvt, 70k miles making subtle tapping

This answer was rated:

Qashqai 2.0 litre petrol, cvt, 70k miles making subtle tapping noise below 5 mph as stopping. Suspect it's from the transmission as it seems related to wheel speed and stops when the car stops. Performance fine and no noises at speed.
What is the cause?

Are there any type of warning lights coming on?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

No warning lights or any other symptoms.

The issue that you are having is the internal chain of the cvt unit,it is common for these units to have this problem and to correct this issue the cvt unit has to be replaced as case damage occurs.

Thanks for that, it's what I expected.

Is the UK warranty now 120,000 miles as in the USA?
