Hi All,

Over the last couple of days the Wifeís J11 has inherited a whirring or kind of like air escaping noise when accelerating. It happens if you rev on idle as well as when pulling away, but doesnít get any louder the faster it goes.

Before I take it into Nissan, has anyone experienced similar?

Thereís no lights on the dash and the car is performing as it should so donít think its anything too sinister.

TIA

Well turned out to be the alternator making the noise, which resulted in the car packing up. Now off to Nissan for a new alternator.
