2013 NISSAN ALTIMA Engine problems & defects.

NISSAN ALTIMA Engine problems : 35.

I Bought A New 2013 altima 2.5 Sl On 7/26/12, With 104 Miles On It Since It Was Delivered From Another Dealer. On 7/29/12 A Warning Light Came On And The Owner’s Manual Said That Possibly The Gas Cap Was Not Tight. This Was Not The Case. Manual Said That If The Light Was Not Flashing, Then It Would Clear After A Few Trips. It Did Not Clear, So I Drove 25 Miles To Dealer 8/3/12 For Them To Test. They Said It Was A Bad Catalytic Converter And Would Be Replaced The Next Day. The Following Day, The Service Manager Called And Said That When They Removed The Converter That Its Contents Spilled On The Shop Floor; And That Their Contacts With nissan Was That This Had Happened On Others And Thus The Engine Had Been Ruined And That nissan Would Replace The Engine. I Stated That I Did Not Want A Replaced Engine Because Of All Of The Required Disassembly And Reassembly Involved, Especially With A Car Only A Few Days Old And Having Driven Only Approximately 160 Miles. I Had Paid For A New Car And Wanted A Completely New Car As A Replacement. I Have Filed A Case With nissan, But So Far They Have Done Nothing But Say That They Are Reviewing The Situation. The Selling Dealer Has Been Very Cooperative, Said That They Agree With Me And Have Stated That They Have Also Contacted nissan On My Behalf And Requested That A New Replacement Be Provided. Since nissan Has Seen This Situation On More Than One Occasion, They Were Aware That They Had Faulty Catalytic Converters And That Catastrophic Failure Was The Result. These Are Not Cars With Several Thousand Miles Use And Several Months Old; But Rather Mine Was Less Than A Week Old. nissan Should Not Give The Buying Customers The Run-a-round, But Do The Proper Thing And Replace The Cars With New Ones Like We Paid For. I Was Under The Impression That They Sold Quality Products And Had A Reputation For Good Customer Service. *tr

On Aug. 10th We Recd An Email From The Empire nissan Fleet Mngr [xxx]. He Stated That They Needed To Have The Car Back And Would Pay Our First Mth Pymt And Give Us A Replacement Car Of Like Kind And Quality. They Would Not Tell Us Why The Veh Needed To Be Returned. We Notified Corp nissan Consumer Affairs Dept And They Contacted Empire nissan. They Finally Advise That The Reason They Need The Veh Back Was Because There Was An Open Campaign On It With A Single Recall. We Agreed To Return It For The Repair. We Took The Veh Back To nissan And Later On That Day, We Were Notified There Were 10 Recalls Found On The Veh! At This Point We Realized That Was Why They Wanted To Swap The Veh. They Agreed To Give Us A Rental Car During Repairs. We Picked Up The Veh & As Soon As We Left, There Was A Constant Buzzing Noise Coming From The Car, There Was A Lot Of Road Noise And Whistling From The Windows, The Engine Was Loud. We Called The Gm [xxx] & Ask Them To Buy The Veh Back & They Told Us That We Were Asking Too Much And That We Are Acting Like We Are The Victim. We Also Called The Svs Mgr, [xxx] To Make Have The Veh Serviced Again. He Was Rude And Said He Didn’t Want To Get In The Middle Of This With The Manufacture & To Not Bring The Veh In To Them For Svs & They Will Not Be Providing A Loaner Nor A Rental For Us. He Stated He Would Have An Engineer Come Out To Look At The Veh To Determine The Cond. We Have Heard Nothing. nissan Has Been Evasive And Has Not Been Honest With Us. Knowing That Veh Had Several Mechanical Issues, They Allowed Us To Cont To Drive This Veh And Put Us In Danger With No Regards To Our Safety. Just A Day Ago We Saw On The News There Are Now Two More Recalls On Our Veh. Now A Total Of 12 Recalls On A Brand New Car! Information Redacted Pursuant To The Freedom Of Information Act (foia), 5 U.s.c. 552(b)(6). *tr

I Purchased A 2013 nissan altima 2.5 S In July Of 2012 With 349 Miles On It. I Have Had Numerous Problems And Have Returned The Vehicle On Several Occasions For Repair And Have Yet To Find A Solution To The Problem. In The Mean Time They Are Only Getting Worse. The First Problem Occurred 2 Weeks After I Purchased It. I Got In My Car And Applied The Brake And Pushed The Button To Start The Car And The Car Hesitated, It Was Almost Like The Starter Had Hung Up. I Wasn’t Too Worried At First And Figure It Was Just A One Time Fluke, But It Wasn’t. Nearly Five Days Later It Occurred Again And Atleast One Or Twice A Week There After. After 4 Weeks And It Having Done It About 4 Times By Then I Made And Appointment To Have It Service And A Few Days Later I Noticed 2 New Noise Problems. I Was Driving With Window Down One Day And Heard A Loud Chiming Or Jingling Noise Coming From What Sounded Like The Front Driver Tire.it Pretty Much Sounded To Be A Loose Nut Or Screw Jingling Around Somewhere. Then A Few Days After That’s When The Brakes Started Squealing. And It Was Terrible And Very Loud, Like Nails On Chalkboard And Very Embarrassing. So When I Bring It To Be Serviced They Tell Me That The Issue I Had When Started Could Not Be Duplicated And That The Brakes Where Cleaned And The Rotors Where Shaved Down And Also That They Put No Squeal On. And For The Issue With The Jingling Noise Was That A Screw Was Loose And Rattling Around On The Engine Cover. But When I Drove The Next Day The Brakes Started Squealing Again So Once More 2 Weeks Later I Return It Again.and They Tell Me They Have To Shave The Rear Rotors This Time. When I Leave This Time The Squealing Does Not Return For 2 Weeks. So Once More I Return It This Time They Tell Me That Dirt Is Caked Under My Brake Pads And All I Can Do Is Pretty Much Pressure Wash Them Every Day. That’s Not Quality! *tr

My Vehicle Which Appears To Have Multiple Defects Is Now Hesitating On Start Up And Has Occurred On Several Occasions.

Every Now And Then, I Noticed That There’s Also A Single Clicking Sound Which Seems To Come From The Engine Compartment And A Drumming/slapping Noise When Applying The Brakes.

I Was Driving A Brand-new, nissan altima Rental Car On A Business Trip. After I Returned To My Hotel One Afternoon, I Forgot To Turn The Engine Off. This Vehicle Has A Key Fob And A “start/stop” Button Only. There Is No Metal Key. After I Exited The Vehicle, I Noticed That The Horn Did Not Honk When I Locked The Vehicle With The Key Fob. The Trunk Release Did Not Automatically Open When I Used The Key Fob. I Manually Pressed A Button Under The Trunk Lid To Retrieve My Bag. The Next Morning, I Noticed Steam And Water Coming Out Of The Exhaust Tailpipes. (it Was App. 34 Degrees That Morning.) I Discovered That The Engine Was Still Running, And The Car Used App. 3/8s Of A Tank Of Gasoline Overnight. My Concern Is That A Car Like This Could Be Driven Into A Garage With The Engine Left On, And Then The Occupants Of The Residence Could Get Carbon Monoxide Poisoning From The Exhaust Fumes. This Vehicle Needs Some Time Of Warning Bell, Chime, Etc. To Remind The Driver That The Engine Is Still Running If They Open The Driver’s Side Door And/or Exit The Vehicle. Thank-you. *tr

When Sitting The Front Passenger Seat Passenger Air Bag Off Sign Comes Out And Randomly Disappear,appear Repeatedly. Sit The Very Properly By Owner’ Manual It Comes Out. It Means Passenger Air Bag Is Off Sign On It Will Not Inflate In A Crash. I’m Very Scary Drive This Car With Someone Who Sit The Passenger Seat. Although Sitting On The Seat Properly And Using The Seat Belt Properly It Doesn’t Matters Because The Passenger Air Bag Off Light Always Illuminate. It Is Very Dangerous In A Crash. I Really Want To Know Need Air Bag For What??? nissan Already Recalls Some Car Same Issues. I Bring My Car nissan Dealer,they Do Nothing And Say”this Is Normal” And Have Same Problems My Car’s Vin# Not Include The Recalls So They Don’t Fix Or Replace Anything. It Is Ridiculous. Also altima Has Weird Winning High Pitch Noise All The Time And Drive Low Rpm To Change To High Rpm Makes Very Loud Rumbling Knocking Noise.it Seems Like A Drive Belt And Tensioner Problems. Dealer Say That It Is Normal. Dealer Always Say “it Is Normal”. If My Warranty Is Finish They Say That It Is Problems. I Really Want To Solutions. *tr

Well The Main Selling Point On This Vehicle Is That The Dealer Told Me They Were Top In Mpg’s With 27 City And 38 Highway. After A Week Or So I Noticed That My Mpg Average Is No More Than 23.1. And That Was With More Than 50% Travel On Highways With No Traffic(never Went Under The Speed Limit). I Figured It Had Something To Do With It Being New And It Would Average Out Better Later. So After 5,000 Miles On The Car I Took It In And They Told Me That This Is Just Because Every Driver Averages Different And I Kept Saying But I Am Not Even Getting Close To The 27 City And I Drive More Highway. But They Told Me That Everything Is Normal And They Reset The Average Calculator. After A Week It Was Worse Than It Was Before And I Was Bringing It Back For My Many Other Problems I Have With This Car. They Had My Car For 4 Days And Finally Told Me That While They Had It A Check Engine Light Came On Saying That My Air Fuel Ratio Sensor Was Faulty. They Replaced It And Told Me That Was The Fix. I Have Put About A Tanks Worth Of Mileage On It Since And I Am Getting Under 23 Mpg Still. Either Something Is Very Wrong With My Car Or nissan Is Lying About The Mpg’s And Yes I Get That They Are Presented By The Epa But nissan Does The Test First Then Sends It To The Epa And Then The Epa Tests Later On. Either Way The Mpg’s Are Wrong And I Drive To Try To Get The Best Mpg’s I Don’t Even Go Over 2,000 Rpm’s Unless Going Up Hill. Which Brings Me To The Vibration From The Trans. But That’s In Another Complaint. nissan Needs To Fix This Problem Because I Chose This Over The Honda Accord Just For The Mpg’s. *tr

So I Have Been Hearing A Whining Sound Coming From The Engine Compartment Of My Car At Low Speeds. I Took It In And The Dealership Told Me It Was A Normal Power Steering Noise. And Said There Was Nothing They Could Do, I Brought It Back A Week Later After I Found Out The Next Day That Their Is A nissan Technical Bulletin On This. And They Had It For A Few Days With My Other Concerns And Returned It To Me Saying That My Car Did Not Qualify For The Repair. Why Is This? It Is Making Intolerable Noises And Yet They Do Not Fix It? To This Day I Am Still Getting These Noises And Have Read That The Steering Pump Has Failed On Other 2013 nissan altimas. There Needs To Be A Recall! *tr

Transmission Is Locking Up At Any Speed While Coasting Or Decelerating,feels Like Motor And Transmission Is Going To Come Right Out Of It. On Way Back To Dealership, It Happened At 55mph Going Around A Bend,and Front Tires Locked Up And Chirped,this Was The Worse One, If This Happened On Snow Covered Roads,there’s No Doubt That I Would Have Went Right Into The Ditch..we’ve Only Had The Car 3weeks And Put Less Than 1500 Miles On It.the Car Started Doing This 3 Days Ago,today Took It To Dealership,took Serviceman On Test Drive And Within A 1/4 Mile, He Had Seen Enough,what Is Wrong With These Cvt Transmissions,this Is A Very Dangerous Situation When A Transmission Locks Up At Highway Speeds!!! *tr

Safety Concern, Proper Operation Of Air Bags (srs Light On). This Is A Major Safety Concern. One Month After Purchasing A Brand New nissan altima 2013, A Major Light Indicator Came On. This Light Brought Up Concerns. Are The Air Bags Working Properly? Will The Air Bags Deploy Correctly Upon Impact? Are The Air Bags Working At All? Will The Air Bags Deploy While Driving? Will The Air Bags Implode And Affect The Steering Process? Is This An Indication That There Is An Electronic Or Electrical Circuit Malfunction? After Buying A Brand New Vehicle, Should I Even Have To Deal With These Issues, Questions Or Concerns? In Addition To The Above Safety Concern, The List Of Electronic, Electrical And Mechanical Issues Continues For The Newly Bought Vehicle. There Was An Issue With The Power Steering, The Brake System, Bubbling Paint And Concerns With The Engine Compartment And Interior Compartment Of The Above Mentioned Vehicle. All This Is Reflected In Each Of The Invoices Submitted For Your Perusal. In Addition, Upon Starting The Vehicle, It Continuously Has A Rough Idle, A Rough Start At Times The Vehicle Stalls Out. He Is At A Loss Because Who Should He Take His Vehicle With This Concern? All In All, Sir All These Vehicle Discrepancies Are Troubling To Have With A Brand New nissan altima 2013 And All Of These Issues Within The Last Nine Months. Also, There Were Problems With The Power Steering, The Brake System And Concerns With The Engine And Interior Compartments.

I Had Purchased A New 2013 nissan altima From Bommarito nissan On 11/6/2012 My Car Only Had 252 Miles On It. When I Had Taken The Acre Back To The Dealer For A Oil Change That’s When I Was Notified That They Will Have To Order Parts For My Car For The Fuel Ratio Sensor And Ecu With New Updates Since This Was Made The Car Has Being Running Horrible And When The Car Was Taken To The Dealer They Stated That The Car Has All The Updates And This Is How It Supposed To Run So They Could Not Duplicate The Concern. I Did Research And See That Others Have The Same Problem. nissan Does Not Want To Pay For Another Diagnostic That I Would Have To Pay For It. This Car Is Carp And If I Wanted A Used Car I Would Have Bought One Without Any Power Because The Car Seem To Loose Power You Have To Turn Off Air To Get Speed And Punch Your Foot Into The Floor To Get Power And Its Idled To High As If It Is Not Getin Any Gas I Would Like This Issue To Looked Into Because There Is A Problem On Hand And Others Have The Same Problem And nissan Is Not Wanting To Fix These Problems. *tr

I Purchased My 2013 nissan altima 3.5sl One Week Earlier. As I Was Driving I Noticed That When I Began To Accelerate And Get To 20-40 Mph The Car Would Jerk Violently As If My Car Was In The Wrong Gear. I Took My Car Into The Dealership And They Did A Software Update On The Transmission And Kept My Car For 4 Days. They Put 75 Miles On My Car To “ensure” They Corrected The Problem. I Picked Up My Car On The 4th Day And Drove 2 Miles From The Dealership And Encountered The Same Jerking And Shuddering Problem. I Turned Around And Went Back To The Dealership Where I Was Greeted By A Service Manager That Insisted We Go For A Drive To See If He Could Experience What I Was Talking About. After Taking The Ride He Explained That He Did Feel The Jerking And Shuddering But It Is Within Normal Limits. I Was Told To Contact nissan Usa And Make A Complaint But The Dealership Really Does Not Want To Do Anything Further To Correct The Issue Unless They Are Contacted By Corporate. I Do Not Feel Safe In This Car!!! I Am Afraid This Car Is Going To Stall On Me At The Worse Possible Time. *tr

altima 2.5l Eng. Problem: Engine Vibrations/cvt Shuttering Since Approx. 3600 Miles, But Has Continually Gotten Worse With More Miles (7000 Mi 12/31/13). Vibrations Felt At 1500-2000 Rpms (enough To Shake And Vibrate The Dash Components), Then Vibration Goes Away. Slight Acceleration Under Load At 1500-2000 Rpms And At Any Speed (20-30, 40-55, 72 Mph) Will Result In Droning/vibrations (everytime). Had nissan Service Mgr. Ride With Me, Then He Drove The Vehicle And Confirmed The Vibrations. He Said To Return The Vehicle In Jan 2014 To Further Document This Problem That nissan Does Not Admit Exists. However, This Problem Has Been Reported To nissan Many Times Over This Past Year (2013). I Now Believe This Vibration Is Coming From The Engine And Not From The Cvt Since I Can Feel Vibrations 1500-2000 Rpm Even When The Vehicle Is Stopped (in Park Or In Neutral). Update: 1/08/14 nissan Dealer Replaced Engine Alternator, Problem Still Exists, No Change In Vibrations. 1/10/14 nissan Replaced Tensioner And Engine Serpentine Belt, Problem Still Exists, No Change In Vibrations. 1/13/14 Filed Complaint With nissan Consumer Affairs. *tr

Noticed Car Shaking Violently While Coasting At About 17 Mph And Then Accelerating. Contacted Dealership.

I Bought My 1st 2013 nissan On August 18, 2023 And It Had Approx. 3,000 Miles On It At The Time Of Purchase. After A Few Days, I Noticed A Sputtering In The Car When De-accelerating And Also When Accelerating. After 10 Days It Had Got So Bad, I Took The Car Back To The Dealer. Luckily, It Happened Very Badly When They Drove The Car. I Spoke With The Store Manager And He Agreed To Give Me A New Car With Less Than 100 Miles On It. Low And Behold. The New Car Started Sputtering Very Little (hardly Noticeable) After About 2,000 Miles. Trying To Give The Car The Benefit Of The Doubt, I Didn’t Take It Back. Fast Forward,,,,,,,the Car Now Has 14,000 Miles And Is Sputtering More And More. I Also Noticed That The Car Sometimes Smells As If It Is Running A Little Hot When I Get Out Of The Car. I Am Taking The Car In This Weekend And Hopefully The Sputtering Will Be Recreated. If Not, I Will Continue To Take The Car Back When It Sputters And Make Certain To Get Documentation Each Time I Take It In. This Is Terrible And I Don’t Want To Be Stuck With A Car With Issues Such As This. I Am 64 Years Of Age And This Was Supposed To Be My Retirement Car…..a New Car Without Car Problems, As I Don’t Need To Be Trying To Pay For Major Car Repairs On A Fixed Income!!! *tr

When I Drive My Car In The City, Sometimes It Will Goes “numb”, In Other Words Doesn’t Response To My Commands When Speed Is 30mph+rpm Is 2k Or Speed Is 20mph+rpm Is 1.5k.(only At These Two Unique Combination, E.g. Is The Speed Is 30mph+rph Is 1.5k, The Issue Will Not Occur). Either Applying Gas Or Brake Doesn’t Work As I When My Car Is Functioning Normally. The Duration Of This “numb” Issue Is Usually Abt 10-15 Min, And Often Happens When I Use My Car From Cold Start.(but That Usually Happens After A Warm-up Of 5min And Being On The Road For Abt 10-15min). When The Issue Happens, I Feel Like Something Is Controlling My Car Instead Of Me And My Car Doesnt Listen To Me, E.g. My Car Was Going Downhill Smoothly And All Of A Sudden It Goes Numb, I Was Trying To Make The Speed Lower Than 30 Mph But Wasn’t Able To, Luckily It Finally Slow Down When I Applied A Hard Brake That Make The Vehicle Almost Stopped. The Operation And Safety Issue Annoys Me. Sometimes It Gave Me Sudden Pause On The Road(20-30 Mph Speed). I Have Took My Car To Dealership 4 Times Since June 2013, My Transmission System Got Reprogrammed 2 Times. 12/30/2013, I Was Driving On The High Way And The Brake Light Came On, After That My Car Started Operating Weird (feels Like Lack Of Power). Took My Car To Dealership The Next Day And Got Transmission Reprogrammed, Plus Some Parts Changed (i Don’t Know What They Exactly Changed). Almost Everyday, I Experience My Car Goes “numb” Out Of Nowhere, And Had To Live With It Being Unable To Control My Car When It Happens Because nissan Blames The “cold” Weather In California And My Sensitivity In Driving. *tr

Car Shakes At 1900 Rpm (everytime You Pass By 1900rpm) And When Stopped At Light (when You Have Brakes Applied). This Vibration Can Be Feeled By Driver & Passenger And Whole Car Shakes. I Had It Pointed Out During The Servicing/oil Changes To nissan Technician And All I Got Is “it Is Normal For Cvt So Car Will Vibrate”. This Vibration Is A Safety Issue As On An Avg I Driver The Car For An Hour A Day. And If I Stop At Lights For 10 Minutes On An Avg, Then I Am Exposing My Self To This Vibration For That Much Time A Day Which Is Bad. Its Specially Bad For My Legs. nissan Does Not Have A Fix At The Moment For This Issue But I Epxect A Brand New Car Not To Vibrate As Horrible As This. My 10 Year Old Car Was Much Smoother Then This. The Overall Experiance Is Horrible And Will Advise All To Stay Away From nissan Because They Are Not Admitting The Problem And They Dont Have The Solution For Such A Problem. This Is A Safety Issue When You Consider The Effects On Long Term Exposure And I Feel Goverment Should Do Something About It.

It Eventually Just Slowed Down And I Had To Quickly Exit To Avoid Getting Stuck In The Middle Of The Highway.

I Have A New 2013 nissan altima Sl V6 I Have Had Several Problems With This New Car. Blind Side Warning, And Traction Control Light Stayed On One Time. My Car Wouldn’t Start Up Several Times After Walking Up To The Car And Pressing The Button On The Door. The Key Wouldn’t Unlock The Doors, It Wouldn’t Auto Start The Car. I Had To Wait To Get In My Car, I Actually Had To Stick My Key In The Door To Get In The Car. When I Did Finally Get In The Car And Try To Start It Nothing Happened, It Said No Key This Is Dangerous I Am A Female God Forbids Somebody Tries To Rape Or Kill Me And I Am Not Able To Get Away In My New Car That I Pay All This Money For Every Month. The Dashboard Says: Key Not Detected Or No Key, Or Incorrect Key Id. My Car Has Been In And Out Of The Shop And They Still Doesn’t Know What’s Wrong. I’ve Recently Went To A Different Dealer Hoping They Can Work On My Car And Get Me The Results I’m Looking For… I Completely Hate This Car Because It Has Been N The Shop More Times Than My Last Car. All They Kept Saying Was More Computer Problems. I Got My Car 12/2012 And My Car Has Been In The Shop Over 20 Times With Lots Of Issues. I’m Still Within My 36000 Warranty. I Also Hear A Clicking Noise In The Front Tire. Dealership Replaced Some Bolts And Greased It As Well. They Said It Needed Grease.. The Noise Has Came Back About 2 Weeks Later!! Its Time Consuming To Keep Going Back To The Dealership To Get Repairs!! But I Have To Do It. I Had The Recall For Air Bags But It Still Didn’t Register An Adult Who Sat In The Front Seat Who Weighed About 103 Lbs. So His Air Bag Wouldn’t Deploy If We Got In An Accident. That Isn’t Safe At All.. Pls Fix And Change That Feature For The Sake Of Smaller Adults. nissan Shouldn’t Restrict The Weight Of A Front Seat Passenger.. All These Problems…. I Will Be Opening Up A Lemon Law Case!! This Is Ridiculous!!!!

I Have These Issues Everyday Driving This Car. Shuttering At Low Rpm When Accelerating Or Decelerating, Noticeable Delay In Gears Shifting When Shuttering Is Occurring Between 1200 And 1800 Rpm. Rpm’s Increase Rapidly(sharp Spike) When Car Is Going Down Hill But Does Not Allow The Car To Gain Speed. The Ramping Of Rpm’s Is Loud And Resembles When You Hit Gas To Accelerate To Enter A Highway Only You Are Not Getting The Acceleration In Speed. Also Coming Up Hill The Car Gives Off A Burning Smell. I Have Not Located The Source Of The Burning Smell And It Goes Away After Going Back To Flatter Terrain For Awhile. The Smell Lingers Enough To Cause Concern.

I Purchased A 2013 nissan altima S From Carmax On 10/5/14. The Car Was Suppose To Be A Birthday Present To Myself Seeing As Though I Had Not Purchased A Car In 12 Years. I Was Very Excited, But Shortly After Purchasing The altima, I Started To Hear Squealing Coming From The Brakes, And Also Roaring And Rumbling Which Started In The Front Of The Car, And Proceeded To The Center. I Also Complained About The Car Locking Up And Driving Sluggish, And Then Releasing Once The Rumbling Briefly Stopped. I Am Also Hearing An Annoying Whining Sound Coming From The Right Side Of The Vehicle. When I Took The Car Back To Carmax, They Told Me The Roaring Was Coming From My Windshield Washer Compartment That Was Loose, And That My Brakes Were Fixed. Needless To Say, I Left And Drove Around The Corner, And The Squealing Brakes And Roaring Came Back. I Took The Car To A nissan Dealership In My Area, And After Telling Them About The Roaring And The Whining, The Service Manager Told Me That He’s Quite Familiar With The Sound, And There Is Nothing Wrong With The Vehicle. He Stated That The Whining Sound Is Coming From The Power Steering And The Roaring Is Coming From The Way I Am Driving The Vehicle. How Dare He! I Only Had The Vehicle For A Month Before I Took It To The nissan Dealership. He Would Not Even Try To Look Into The List Of Issues I Requested To Be Fixed. The nissan Manager Told Me To Go Back To Carmax Or I Would Have To Pay For The Brakes To Be Fixed, And Even Charged Me To Rotate My Tires. I Left Paying Him For A Service That I Did Not Originally Come In For. I Went Back To Carmax And They Finally Fixed My Brakes, But Still Could Not Find Anything Wrong That Would Cause The Extremely Annoying Roaring And Whining Noises. This Has Been A Nightmare, And I Am Thinking About Taking Legal Action.
