#38 of 47 Sentra 2010 whistling noise
Oct 29, 2010 (1:07 pm)
The odometer is just 220 km. I puchased it about a month ago.
From just a week ago,
when the speed is between 50 km and 55 km, I can hear whistling noise.
Even if I put the transmisson in neutral postion I can still hear the noise.
The Nissan service person said it's normal. But I don't think so.
Does some one have the same problem with me?

I'm having the same exact problem with my 2009 Sentra. It's just the basic model and has 36900 miles. I've taken it 3 times and they have already changed the oil filter. Now they are telling me it's a normal noise and if I had bought a top model I wouldn't hear it because mine doesn't have the sound proffing. I'm livid! Regardless if it's a basic model or not it shouldn't be making that noise! Please let me know if this bearig issue is the same for my model too. If so, I've only had the car a few weeks and I'm going to take it back and get my money back because they don't want to fix the problem! Thanks!

I just bought a 2010 used Nissan Sentra and I'm having the problem with a knocking noise. It gets better when it is warmed up, but it still has a knocking noise. I had it a couple days and brought it into the Nissan dealer for them to look at it. They are telling me that it is normal. I feel like I'm loosing my mind. Many people tell me they too hear the noise. I will go in and tell them to check the premature bearing failure in the motor and if they don't fix it I think I will return it. I believe I have 31 days to return the car?
#41 of 47 07 Sentra 2.0 clanking
Aug 28, 2011 (3:35 pm)
Well its not a loud clank, but more than a click. And it happens almost every time I start the car up and press the accelerator the first time. After that it goes away, but may come back if I am stopped at a light say, and press the accelerator to start up. Either it started a few weeks ago or I just never noticed it in the 4 months I've had the car, which seems unlikely. Any ideas?

Hey Shirokuma, SAME thing is happening to my 2011 Sentra! The dang Click; I think it is more when the weight of the vehicle shifts rather than the accel/brake pedals, but it's driving me nuts! I'm taking him in to the dealer in 2 weeks to find out!
I also get noise when I shift from rev to drive and turn the wheel... sounds like pulling the parking brake in old stick shift cars.
I can also hear the suspension (like... springs or air puffs) every time I go over any bumps in the road.

I'm having the identical problem in my 2010 Sentra SR... a knocking noise when braking and accelerating, and a screeching sound when turning the wheel immediately after coming out of reverse.
If you can, please let me know what your dealer says about the problem. I've had the car in for this issue twice and have been told that the sounds are normal--but I'm not ready to accept that.
#44 of 47 2012-Sentra SR Start up noise. Buzzing/whining
Feb 29, 2012 (6:57 am)
I have a 2012 Nissan Sentra SR, I just purchased. It had seven miles on it. During initial start up and for a period of 2-3 min it has a loud whining/buzzing noise emitting from the engine compartment. It is noticeable from inside the cabin and outside. I thought it was a just a break in thing that would go away. However I have around 200 miles and the car still has the same issue. I talked to my local Nissan service section over the phone. They tried to tell me it was normal, I requested documents to validate. He tried to tell me it was TSB and I have access to TSB and I could not locate it. He then fumbled around and told me he would call me back.

Your call sounds just like my 2010. No problems however...
#46 of 47 2011 Nissan Sentra Knocking Noise
Aug 15, 2013 (8:47 am)
I have a 2011 Nissan Sentra. There is a distinct knocking noise that happens under the following conditions: the car has not been driven for a while, engine is cold, and I reach 19-20 miles per hour while accelerating and the car makes a knocking noise (like a hammer on metal) a few times then stops. It goes away as I drive the car more. It seems to happen only once and only under those conditions. I took the car to a Nissan dealership service to get the right front struts replaced because that's what I was told was making the knocking noise. I also had the oil changed. The knocking is still there. Any ideas? I've read that it can be an engine bearing problem. How expensive is this to fix? Anyone have this knocking noise and just lived with it? I feel that if I try to sell or trade in this car in the future and the knocking noise is there, it will diminish the value of the car. I'm very disappointed. This is the most expensive car I've ever purchased and it's already giving me problems.

I had the same problem. Knocking when the engine was cold. Had 55,000 miles on the car. Long story short...Dealership said car needs a new short block and that it is covered under warranty at the moment. Defective bearing, etc...?
