2007 Nissan Sentra 2.0 S 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl CVT)
Love the car when road conditions are good. However, in snow, ice, or rain the rear end of the car wanders and is frightening to drive. No solution from dealer yet. Some websites suggest this is a problem with rear end alignment and could be a manufacturing defect.
I also have this same vehicle and same problem.
I did not notice it the first winter I had it, but the next winter it was terrible.
I thought it was because the tires were worn, so I bought new all season tires.
This did not correct the problem.
Then I thought maybe I did not notice because we didn't have as much snow and the roads were always clean. My husband said it was all in my head, now he says he won't drive that "death machine" on the highway to work.
I also thought it was the low profile tires, but other people that have those types of tires say they don't have this problem. We don't know if we should invest the money and effort into new winter tires.
I really like driving this car, when there is no snow.
Have you bought winter tires, if so, did it solve the problem?
Any help would be appreciated, Thanks
