Does the engine rev? You could have a broken constant velocity joint.

Transmission failure is the #1 complaint for the 2011 Maxima on carcomplaints.com, Nissan CVTs are known to have problems, so that’s my guess. A shop will be able to quickly tell you what it is.

As long as it is not AMACO or a chain type shop.


I suspect that NYBO is right the CV joint depending on how quickly you got through the intersection and it is now making loud noises.
