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?

Nissan Jukes generally have a turbocharged 1.6 Litter engine that uses a timing chain. Some of the engines (2011 - 2013) contained a defective timing chain that was covered by a Nissan factory recall. If you call Nissan with your VIN number they will tell you if yours contains the defective chain. Chain replacement for those not on the recall will vary depending on maintenance and driving conditions. A Nissan dealership will diagnose the amount of wear on the chain by listening for a pronounced, distinct rattle from the front of the engine. Listen to your engine and don’t take chances. If you hear something weird get it in.  If the chain breaks it will destroy the engine.

Timing chains are 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 worn out at ~100k miles, give or take. Since it's so common it's sometimes better to get it done as a precaution since timing chain engines are typically interfere. Nissan engines are almost all interfere designs, but you can confirm that with the engine code if you want to know for sure.

The 2011-13 Jukes with the MR16DDT engines issues with the timing chain, so its best to replace it if you want to know for sure, but you can also check the VIN to tell as mentioned by someone else. If the engine has been replaced, there is no way to be sure without just getting it done. The HR16DE isn’t affected. If you hear about the VR38DETT, this only applies to the Nismo Juke.

In general, most timing chain engines are interference designs. If the chain breaks this design usually ends up damaging the block and pistons, totaling the engine out and making replacement your only viable option. It MUST be replaced when it shows early failure symptoms to avoid destroying the engine.

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.
