2013 Nissan Altima - has a noise in the front driver side.

Customer Question
2013 Nissan Altima -...

2013 Nissan Altima - has a noise in the front driver side. The dealer who sold it to us. Heard the noise but "supposedly" dint know what it was and referred us to the local Nissan dealer down the road. The had it all day yesterday and said it was the exhausts flap vibrating. So they were calling Nissan today about the problem because it still happens after being fixed. Nissan said it was the alternator vibrating around 30-40 mph. And that it would cost over $500 to fix.

Mechanic's Assistant: How many miles are on the car? How has your mileage been lately?

Granted 1 payment has been made and purchsed as a used car but took the warranty that doesnt cover that problem. Of course. The original dealer told us he would split the cost only. If he knew of this problem is their any way Nissan could pick up the other half.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Altima yourself? What have you tried so far?

No it is at the Nissan dealer yesterday and today. Which they ordered whatever part is needed and will have it until Friday.
