I am driving a 2012 Nissan Qashqai dCi; I am the third owner and I bought it on 158,428km. I had to replace the battery, clutch master cylinder, front and back brake pads. I took it for a service at the required intervals, but this time around I have exceeded the mileage for the next service by over 5,000km due to financial constraints. I'm not having major problems except hearing some funny squeaky metallic sounds when I'm driving. I need to do the wheel alignment/balancing and I was also told at my last service that the sub-frame needs to be replaced because it is bent somehow. I am not in a position to buy a new car and I still owe money on this car; is it advisable to fix this car or just sell it?

Sounds to us like the Qashqai is not a good one and it is likely to keep costing you money. We'd advise you trade it in for another car.
