Today, I found an empty parking lot. So I decided to test the tires (1 year old Michelin LTX) to see what the limitations are. I essentially went in an oval at around 25-30mph. I had it on 2wd, then on Auto. The issue I found is when I started turning, I could feel heavy vibration. I'm talking pretty heavy shaking that you can feel in the steering wheel. What's causing this? I turned off the Traction Control and it was doing the same thing.
What I found odd, was even with TC off, the TC light went on when I was slipping. How can this be? But the vibration is what worries me. I've had it back to Nissan to do the updates last year so my warranty is up now.
Also, in the morning, I have to do a Uturn at my street. I do this every morning. In the snow, I noticed that with Auto on, when I do the Uturn, I get the same vibration, although not nearly pronounced.
Anyone as to the culprit? Is it the rotten transmission? What is it?
