2006 Nissan Xtrail - really sloppy in turns - sometimes feels like rearend does not want to follow front end around - like I am driving on marbles. Tire size 215-60-17 - inflated to 31 lbs - could tire pressure be causing this problem?
From my experience in driving and adjusting tire pressures, the sensation of driving in marbles can often be associated with tire pressure when you have different tire pressures in one or more of the wheels.
You need to check the tire pressure on all 4 of the wheels when the tires are cool and make sure they are inflated to the pressure which is recommended by your vehicle manufacturer. Do not inflate to the pressure shown on the tire sidewall as Maximum Tire Pressure … this is only the limit beyond which that tire should never be inflated but is seldom what is the correct pressure for the best performance of the vehicle.
If you find that all tires are inflated to the correct pressure and you still are having a strange feeling in controlling your vehicle you then may start to suspect a mechanical cause of the situation and discuss the issue with your mechanic.
