2004 Nissan Altima Wanders at Highway Speeds

I have a 2004 Nissan Altima with 56K miles. At highway speeds it seems to wander. A slight shift in the steering and it is corrected. A few minutes later it will do it again. This is only noticed on straight aways. Car holds true through the turns.

Hi, My Versa wanders at speeds over 70mph. Probably electric steering. How can I make it more stabile on the highway? The car did it since new. It has been checked for everything that could go wrong.


have an inspection done on the steering and front end suspension
loose /worn ball joints steering end joints , wheel alignment and faulty tyres will give you this indication
The power steering pump does nothing more that provide pressure into the steering box/rack to assist with the steering
it may be that the steering is to sensitive at speed and most systems compensate by having less power assist at speed
take it to a steering specialist accredited shop as the control valves may need replacing or adjusting

2005 nissan altima heater blows cold air when stopped and blows hot air when going down the highway. What could be the problem?


Check your coolant level. If it is low, what you describe will happen. Water pump works faster as rpm's increase, managing to get hot coolant to heater core (highway speeds). At idle, pump is not working fast enough to get the coolant to the heater core.

2004 Nissan Altima Wanders at Highway Speeds


Depending on the tires, it could be a couple of things. I would have the alignment checked. If there isn't enough toe-in, you will get great wear from your tires, but the handling will be loose or will wander.

I had new tires put on our Nissan Maxima and they did a reallignment with not enough toe-in. It became very twitchy at interstate highway speeds. Just a little toe in made a huge difference. I knew what to ask for because I have some racing background. We could go faster with less toe-in, because it reduces the resistance on the rolling tires, but also makes it more sensitive to the road surface, side winds and tire wear.

But there also shouldn't be any slop in the tie rods, etc...
