Rear end problem on nissan sentra 2007

I have been experiencing severe rear tire wear on my 2007 Nissan Sentra. The front tires are fine. I have read of this problem on other sites and realize that many people have been experiencing this fault with their Sentra's. This includes both the 2007 and 2008.I have become very frustrated with our dealership refusal to acknowledge this problem and their reversel of blame.What is Nissan doing to rectify this problem and where can I go to get this fixed?

    My rear tires wore out much faster than the fronts on my '07 Sentra. This should never happen in a front wheel drive car. On first visit to the dealer, I got nowhere. Now I am seeing many more similar complaints. I am going to contact Nissan directly about this.

    I also have a 07 Sentra and the rear, right tire is totally worn out at 16K miles.

    The dealer is just giving me lots of lip service and no solution.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    I have a 2007 Nissan Sentra 2.0S automatic sedan and my low tire guage light kept lighting up after only 12k miles on the car. Further inspection of the right rear tire showed very uneven wear on the tire (I thought I had a puncture or something as my indicator light kept coming on almost monthly, but I didn't). I pointed it out to the dealer who just gave me an inspection sticker only a month earlier, and then I ended up having to replace both rear tires out of pocket and there was less than 20k miles on the vehicle! I have also been having steering issues and loud clunking noises and am going though lemon law arbitration for this since the dealer has tried 4 times without success to fix it.

    I have had the same problems with my 2007 Nissan Sentra. Front tires needed to be changes at 12,000 miles! Back tires did have significant wear as well, but nothing like the front. The dealer in Wausau, Wisconsin(Kocurek??) accused me of wrong doing and refused to do anything about it. I'm now on my third set of tires at 38,000. It also handles terribly in heavy rain, and any snow, slush or ice. It is like I'm being shuffled from side to side. I have never had a car act like that in those conditions!

    Check that on my last post, it was the back tires that wore down, not the front tires!

    I too have had issues with the rear end of my car . At first I was told that the pulling to the right at 3,000 mi was just the roads that i drive on. At 12,000 mi my back tires were shot. I had new tires put on at the dealer and then it was taken to be aligned and could not be aligned , they then checked bulletins and found similar problems and setermined that it was a factory defect. They replaced the cross member and it did not fix it. They then called nissan engineering and it took three months for them to make a part that was supposed to fix the car. it was aligned again and said that it was all fixed . I took it to an independent alignment shop and was told it was way off. Did not get that corrected yet and going to have to replace my 40,000 mi tires AGAIN at 18,000 mi. The dealer stilll says that it is fine. I did contact a lemon law atty. I hope that it is resolved soon. How can Nissan not recall the car or figure out what the problem is if so many people have this issue???? It has been a year now, my car is a 2007 and i have had 1.5 years. Also, don't bother calling the Nissan customer support # , call the BBB or an Atty.

    I have somewhat of the same problem, I have had problem with one of my front tires since I bought the car in 2007 (Nissan Sentra 2007 2.0S).. I have had to fill that tire up with air every month since I bought it and now at 13'000 miles it doesn't even hold the air anymore.. The other 3 tires are ok, it's only the right front tire.. I now have to replace it after only 13'000 miles..

  • carlas14 Apr 06, 2009

    I have a 2007 Sentra (bought brand new) with 23,000 miles and the dealer informed me that my tires need replacing. When I asked why that would be at only 23,000 miles he told me that it must have been from potholes. My car does not handle well in the snow or rain either. I'm getting no where with the dealer and am getting frustrated. I have the extended warranty but was told that was not covered due to wear and tear.

    I have 36,000 miles on my nissan sentra, bought new.  And I am currently on my third set of tires... about to need my fourth.  Nissan blames it on me missing my tire rotation at 6,000 miles, and that if I buy Michelin tires and rotate my tires every 6,000 miles, the problem will stop.  I think these people are feeding me a load of bull.  and if all FOUR tires go bad after 12,000 (on average, one set went bad after 8,000), I promise you, it's not a rotation problem.  I had the car aligned.  Everything was to spec.  The tire place I took the car to, wants to help and do their best to stand behind their product.  But Nissan keeps passing the buck, saying it's the tire, it's the tire. Talked to the dealer and the corporate office.  I can't wait to sell this car, and I promise I will never ever own another Nissan again. I'm going to try to find out more about Lemon Laws as well.  I'm so frustrated.

None most likely.

When the the amount of probelems gets high enough, they may do something but not likely because the cost of a recall is more than what it costs to Pay people to settle out of court " if it gets that far" or its cheaper to lose a few customers. This is true with any part on a car.

If " A " (the recall) cost more than " B " the average out of court settlement, Then "C", they dont do one.

Even if it causes accident related Deaths.

Most likely the issue is due to too much weight on one side in the back, an alighnment issue, Bad frame desighn or bad parts like shocks and springs.

If its that severe than i would take it to them and explain that you have reciepts for replacing that same tire over and over. get them to look at it at least three times. Be persistant, especially if its under warranty.

Go durring a busy time when theres other customers around. Dont be crude, just make sure other customers can hear yu.

Explain that you looked online and talked to friends at work and have heard of it from other people and read about it online.

After they fineley aknowledge there may be a problem and they try to fix it three times, it becomes a Lemmon and they have to give you your money back or give you another vehicle of equal value.

Keep all reciepts and papers and everything in case it becomes a legal issue.

Good luck.

Help with learn mode.How to? sorry,it's a 2007 versa sl hatchback,not a sentra.

To activate a new transmitter in the tire pressure monitoring system WITHOUT the Nissan Consult scan tool: Under the dash above the OBD II connector is a single wire connector called the "tire pressure warning check connector". Use a jumper wire and ground the tire pressure warning check connector with the key OFF. Then turn the key ON and cycle the ground at the tire pressure warning check connector 5 times within 10 seconds of turning the key ON. This should cause the tire pressure monitor light to start flashing indicating the system is in "learn mode". Then use the activation tool starting at the left front tire and work around the vehicle in a clockwise direction - front left, front right, rear right and rear left. Activating each transmitter at each wheel should make the turn signal flash one time and after completing all 4 wheels, the turn signals should flash two times and all 4 time pressures should be displayed.

I have a 2005 nissan sentra. Tire size is 195/60 R15. I have the chance to get 2 195/65 R15 tires at a good price, and want to put them on the back, keeping the 195/60's on the front. Will this be OK? Some...


195(width in mm)/60(sidewall height in % of width) R15(rim diameter)

This means, a 195/60 R15 rides lower than a 195/65 R15 tire. Imagine how it would look like when you put these different tire sizes on one car. It can be done but the car will be unbalanced both mechanically and aesthetically. Remember, your car was not designed for different front and rear tire sizes unlike some sports cars.

A 2005 model will most like come standard with ABS as with most cars produced year 2001 onwards.
Just buy 1 tire size for your car. If you wish to change to another tire size, change all the tires.

Good luck!

My 2007 Nissan Sentra has terrible traction. The tires have 20 thousand miles on them.

most of the original tires on these cars aren't much good in foul weather after 15-20,000 miles, you need to replace those tires with ones with good all-weather or a true snow tire tread. I'm assuming you have been having snow.

I have a Sentra 2001 with Winter tires and it seems that the noise from driving has suddenly increased by double. It sounds like a plane. The car idles fine so it isn't an engine problem. What could it be?

The first thing to try is to rotate the tires. Tread wear will definitely change the road noise heard by the driver especially with winter tires.

If the noise does not at least change somewhat after rotation then the problem is not tire related.
