Nissan Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi Im David, thanks for visiting the site. the noise in the front end could be alot of things. without being there to listen, feel, see the vehicle, it could be the sway bar end links, but Im not going to guess. take it to a different shop, apparently the mechanics you took it to dont know how to diagnose noises. as far the acceleration issue, do you have a check engine light on?
have the transmission control module interrogated for faults.
do you still need assistance? were you able to have the tcm scanned?
ok. well please keep me posted. thank you.
i apologize the previous expert wasn't very helpful.
I am Jake and will be happy to help.
If the tires are wearing too quickly and the pressures in the tires are correct, then that may help diagnose it actually. If the alignment is off then the technician can see which component is causing it. Additionally these cars had known issues with occasional popping and squeaking around turns that was a result of the coil springs, but replacing the springs and strut mounts correct that issue. Another thing to note is that it's not entirely uncommon to have a loose hood latch causing all kinds of squeaking.
The loss of power on acceleration is a serious concern because it's an early sign of CVT failure. Which I would have addressed immediately while under warranty since they almost always have unfavorable outcomes. It's certainly unfortunate that your having all these issues because these cars in general are pretty reliable and cost effective to drive. The engines seem to run forever with virtually no issues.
