i recently noticed the unusual wear on the rear tires. i had it checked with a local tire shop and got the confirmation that the rear alignment is off and there are no adjustments possible (like trailer tires). i brought it to a nissan dealer and confirmed the same thing. however, the dealer indicated that there are no service bulletins and that there is no fix for the issue. i am in contact with the service manager, but it seems like it is going nowhere. from our last conversation, there are shims that can be used but considered aftermarked therefore not under warranty. i insisted at all times that this is a defect and should be covered. i will pursue this with nissan consumer affairs (even the dealer suggest the option) and bbb if necessary.
anyone with a similar situation here? this is a problem that takes time to be visible on the tires. in my case, the car always drives perfect and i did not notice the issue until about 20k miles later.
since there are similar postings on the net about this specific sentra issue, any 07+ owners or potential used sentra buyers, get an alignment check if you can. thanks.
