problem #1

Jun 172013

Sentra 4-cyl

  • miles
I purchased the vehicle in April. Two months later I realized that when in drive when I set my foot on the brake I would hear a grinding noise in the back of the car. When I would put it in reverse the noise would not occur. It was always when I would hit the breaks until the car came to a complete stop. It would not make the noise when I hit the breaks suddenly. When I called Nissan and brought it in for them I was told that it was a fluid problem. After 2 weeks the noise began again, now it has stopped and goes on and off. Also I have noticed that the indicator for the passenger air bag will be off at times when there is an adult sitting in the seat. This also happens on and off. I have had it though, where the indicator has come on saying the air bag is off for 3 days in a row, having someone sitting in it. The third problem is that the windshield wiper fluid does not spray correctly. It pools at the bottom of the windshield and so it does not clean it correctly. Finally the last problem is that I have noticed when I fill up the gas tank the amount of miles I get are different every time. I have a particular routine everyday and every weekend. At times it seems I have more gas than when I have filled it up before. When I have used the eco button at times, it seems that once in a while it will work the way it is supposed too. Most of the time it seems that the car just guzzles gas more than usual.
