2013 Nissan Altima 2.5 SL 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl CVT)


When I purchased my 2013 Altima in October 2013 it had 149 miles. During my short test drive I did not notice any engine noise. However, as I continued to drive the vehicle I noticed a high pitched whine coming from the engine. This noise is continuing to increase in volume. I rented a 2013 Altima 2.5 in November from Alamo that had 20000 miles and this same noise problem with a much higher volume. I took my car back to the dealer and they wrote on the service request that they could not duplicate the noise. I am going to take it back again and see what their response is.

It's a common problem. The electric power steering pump is noisy. There's a kit they can order to fix (mask). That's the one problem Hunter Nissan actually fixed. "Can't duplicate the noise" is Nissan speak for "live with it. We don't care."
