My 2013 Nissan Pathfinder 2wd has about 9,000 miles. When I go over speed bumps or travel @25mph on rough roads I hear a clunk or some kind of rattle in the front suspension like something is loose. I had my local mechanic check it out and he didnt see anything loose, my husband was also there under the car looking. I live about 100 miles from the closest Nissan dealer should I take it in to have it looked at?

Answers from the Automotive Experts

Amanda J. Pierce, MBA Natalie, I would call the dealership and have your mechanic on that call too if you can, with the mechanic verifying the noise and not pinpointing the source there my be a service bulletin out in regards to your concern.

Amy Mattinat, Owner and Author at Auto Craftsmen Ltd Greetings Natalie, I recommend you go back to your local mechanic and have him go on a test drive with you. That way you can point out the noise and this will give him the information he needs to find out what is making your noise.

Barb Petrey, President - DBK Enterprises Inc at Jiffy Lube It's a warranty thing and the only cost to you would be the travel time.

Helaine Kurot, Owner/Technician at 360 Automotive The vehicle is under warranty. You would be much better off taking it to nissan to have it fixed. Make sure you can readily duplicate the noise before bringing it in. Go for a road test with the mechanic to make sure he/she is able to hear what you do so the issue can be corrected.
