Nissan Quest Growling noise from driver front
I have a 2004 3.5 SE with 5A/T just hit 30,000 miles and after driving home 2.5 hrs with no problems the wife drives to the store and there is a growling noise from the driver front. Sounds like a bad wheel bearing or something. I jacked up the driver front with vehicle in N and spun the wheel only to hear a slight ticking noise from the trans. The noise does increase with vehicle speed but not with RPM. Appt with the dealer is scheduled for 9am tomorrow. Has anyone had this problem and what did they replace, I just expect to get the run around from the dealer. and yes I have the warped rotor thing and the lift gate problems.

Good luck with it!
1. Bad wheel bearing (driver side)
2. warped rotors.
3. 1 tire out of round
4. bad lift gate motor and some trim piece that they said was missing
5. oil seal of some sort on the engine for the leak.
and as far as I I've been told I'm only on the hook for the pro-rated cost of the tire.
All and all I'm not upset, but all within 30,000 miles I don't know
Forbes just came out with the "Year's Poorest-Performing Cars" and the '07 Quest was number 8. On the other hand, our '99 GXE has 120,000 miles on it and hasn't left us stranded yet. It came out of a different factory though,
