I have a rattle almost all the time in the passenger pillar and sometimes in the driver side pillar. Dealer was clueless. Let us know if you figure it out.

I have a rattle/flapping sound that I hear most often at about 40mph. It seems to be coming from the rear of the vehicle. I do hear it sometimes at lower speeds, but not as often. It doesn't seem to be vibration related as it happens on roads that seem smooth to me, but the seat may be dampening the vibrations out. Also I have not noticed it at higher than say 50mph but road and wind noise may account for that. I have not noticed it at less than 35mph or so.
I can't tell if it is an updraft causing the license plate to "slap", it is the trunk lid is rattling on the catch, or if it is something else. There doesn't seem to be anything hanging down loose and the splash guards and spoiler seem tight. I am at a loss on this one.

My Sentra had faulty welds in the left rear wheel well and it took Nissan 3 weeks to figure out where the noise was coming from.
Thankfully they gave me a free courtesy car for the whole time (not really free because I was still making my monthly payments and not enjoying the use of my new car).
#193 of 224 How to disable the AC compressor on defrost
Nov 25, 2007 (11:20 am)
Does anyone know who to disable the AC compressor when using defrost?
On another forum I read a "hack" to disable de AC compressor. As running the AC increases fuel consumption I would like to disable de AC once the front window is clear.

Hi. I just bought the 2007 Sentra yesterday. I got the base model, the 2.0.
It was used. I got it with 13,950 miles on it. I paid $13,495 for it, plus tax.
I love driving it so far. Of course, I'm coming from having a 1995 Honda Accord that I absolutely drove into the ground, so maybe my views are a little skewed.
Anyway, I've noticed the rattling noise when you accelerate that people seem to be talking about. It tapers off a lot after you've stopped accelerating.
That seems to be the only flaw I can find with the car so far. I love the exterior design and the interior feels twice as roomy as the Corolla I test drove the same day yesterday.
Does anyone think that $13,500 was a good price for a one-year-old Sentra? Did I pay too much? Thoughts?

price sounds a little high to me, considering it's a base model, with almost 14k miles on it. But it doesn't sound like you got gouged or anything. a new sentra with 0 miles on it starts at about 16k, and nissan is offering good discounts on them. But, that doesn't really matter. If you like the car and plan on keeping it for awhile, well, thats the important part.
congrats on your new purchase.

I can't opine on the price as I am in Canada and we have always had and still have higher prices, notwithstanding the high value of our currency.
Regarding the noise when accelerating from a stop, the first time in the morning, all Sentras and Versas with the CVT seem to do that.
I have driven 3 different Versas while my car was serviced and the all made the same noise.

Carsdirect dot com is offering $3000 off sticker price for the top-of-the-line Sentra SE-R Spec V (200 hp) and that is for models without the sunroof or leather packages. That discount is for California zip codes. No matter where you buy or what you buy, bargain hard and smart. Sales are slow.

Yesterday in Dallas I paid $17,946 o.t.d. for a new '07 Spec V w/ sunroof, posi, door moldings, Rockford Fosgate, XM, etc. Sticker was $23,600. There are certainly some good deals out there.
#199 of 224 Rubbing or Whining?
Feb 23, 2008 (8:56 pm)
Without reading all the posts just a heads up...I was experiencing a noise in my 07 SE-R that sounded like a tire rubbing or something in the suspension. A second trip to the dealer ended in replacement of the steering box and pump. They had not heard of this before so if you hear something and they say they don't hear anything on the lift...tell them to drive it and check the steering.
