My wife and I bought a 2012 Nissan Versa in Sep 2011. We have really enjoyed this car and haven't had any issues with it up until this morning. After she filled up on gas the car would not move, it turned over, she could rev the engine, but nothing. After I got off work I went to the gas station where it was located to see this problem for myself. Sure enough, engine turned over like normal, put the car into reverse and it immediately started making odd noises. When she was explaining these noises to me on the phone she said that she thought there was a parking curb in front of her (which didn't make sense at the time), but honestly that's what it sounds like. When you pull into a parking space and your front bumper scrapes the cement, that's what the engine sounded like while it was just idling. Anyways, while in reverse I step on the gas... parking break is off it's fully in gear, this is the usual routine here... and nothing. The RPMs were increasing, I could here and see that but the car would not budge, it were as if the car was in neutral. So I put the car into drive, and same thing. Each time I put the car into a different gear it made a horrible grinding noise, especially when I put the car back into park after all of that. I have very little car knowledge which is why we bought an extended warranty and a brand new car. I am having it towed to the service dealership and really hope that they can fix it quickly and find out what went wrong.
@wizkid802 - You say you're a Nissan Internet Manager? I'm not sure what that entails but my wife is really worried that it was something that we could have done... keep in mind this car has barely 71,000 miles on it... haven't even had it for a full year. The farthest this car has gone is to Carmel, CA from Sacramento, CA and other than that she commutes 30 minutes per day. This car has been driven extremely lightly.
In your opinion, do you think that we will have any trouble from the dealership? We have a 75,000 mile warranty.
Thank you in advance.
EDIT: Barely 12,000 NOT 71,000. It's been a long day.
