Clicking noise on acceleration and winding noise on acceleration on driver front wheel
2004 Nissan Murano - 4WD 89,000 mi,
When I first drive the car in the morning, the RPM's soar and the noise is incredible. The car sounds and drives like a truck at that point. I am told another 2004 sounds just like it, so there is nothing wrong.
