Answered by CarsGuide 27 Sep 2019

The Nissan CVT can have problems. A whirring or grinding noise is a common issue, and it’s usually a bearing failure in the transmission. If you have such a noise in your car you should contact Nissan (1800 035 035) to discuss repairs.

Best small hatch under 30k?

Answered by CarsGuide 1 Jan 2016

I would go for the Camry every time after a Maxima. It's $28,990 driveaway for a new car at the moment and is about the same size as the Nissan but much more refined and lighter on fuel.

Answered by CarsGuide 29 May 2015

No, it's not normal. It could be that they forgot to check it as you requested, perhaps they thought you were imagining it. Anyway, take it back and this time have them fix it.

Camry or Altima?

Answered by CarsGuide 22 Dec 2014

It sounds as if you want me to give you the go-ahead for an Altima purchase. OK, done (even though I prefer the Camry). There is nothing dangerous about the Nissan's steering and you will adjust quickly to the feel.
