2008 Nissan Altima 2.5 S 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl CVT)
Leased a 2008 that will be returned in Sept, 2001. Car has 28K miles. Engine sounds like my lawnmower. Brakes sound like metal on metal. The dealer says thats normal?? Would never have another. Pushbutton start stinks, but my wife likes it. Parked the car one day turned it off, I thought. Then came out 3 hours later to find the car still running. Note: be VERY careful if you buy a car with pushbutton start and have an attched garage. People have died from carbon Monoxide poisioning because they thought the car was turned off before retiring to sleep.
I am wondering how you left the car on if the engine sounds like a lawnmower?
Wouldn't accidentally leaving it running mean that the car is quiet?
But, very true what you say about attached garages and push button starts.
I would also say that since it's still under warranty make the dealer fix the noises and brake issues for sure!
