Quest 6-cyl

  • 107,000 miles


My Nissan Quest has been making a rattling noise that is progressively getting worse. I took it in today and was told that I had problems with the timing chain and that I should take it to a dealer or engine shop that is equipped to fix such an issue. One of the reasons I favored buying this car was because of the fact that Nissan uses a timing chain rather than a timing belt. Thus, I wouldn't have the expense of replacing a timing belt in the future. I was lead to believe that timing chains would not be something that I would need to fix. Because this problem is prevalent among Quest owners, I believe that Nissan should recall their vehicles that suffer from the same design flaw. If Nissan doesn't address this issue, someone is going to get injured or killed as a result of one of their faulty timing belts breaking while one of their faulty cars is being driven.
