I have a 2005 Altima with the 3.5 engine. At about 60,000 miles it started developing a whinning noise. The noise has become steadily worse and has been identified as the timing chain problem described in NTB07-042. Nissan will repair the problem for $2000. I have asked them if this is a safety issue and is it safe to drive the car. They will not reply. The service manager would only say that none of the timing chains have failed "to his knowledge".
I don't mind the noise that much, but don't want to drive the car if it's an accident waiting to happen.
Would appreciate advice.
