just hit 11,100 mi today on the way to work and over the last few weeks the pathy has been getting more and more engine vibs in the cab. to the point where sitting at a light my coffee is dancing in the cup. soo, looked up tsb's for the 2011 and found this:

I have an appointment next friday to have Nissan take care of this
anyway, i am posting this so that everyone knows there is an issue with vibrations. the pathy has always shuttered when the a/c compressor kicked on and folks said it was normal. . .this is also supposed to fix that
