Car sways when driving over rough surfaces, bumps in the road, man hole covers. HAS POOR TRACTION ON SNOWY/ICY ROAD CONDITIONS IN TURNS IT SWAYS AND FISHTAILS. hARD TO KEEP ON THE ROAD.


Sounds like you need new shocks all around for the Swaying & Rough Roads stuff.
As far as the Ice and snow try snow tires but you have to realize its a pretty big car and may not handle very well in the snow.

The 05 endeavor is all over the road on ice even just a little. ZNo control seems to fishtail all over.


All vehicles will have problems on ice, even SUVs. To reduce the problem make sure your tires are in good condition and are properly inflated.

When driving the car it fishtails but only when there is ice or snow on the road any other road conditions it is fine


This is a front wheel drive vehicle correct? Jack up the car and see if your rear brakes are on. Also check that the emergency brake is all the way off.

Front End Rattling in 2006 Pontiac Pursuit


Sounds like a body weld issue ( as this is a unitized body design). Several US GM models prone to this. No real good cure.

1995 nissan maxima fishtails just bought it used is this common?


Fishtailing on a front wheel drive car is not really a common problem, no matter what make it is. The Maxima is generally a good handling car and 1995 was the first year that they used the VG30DE engine which had plenty of power. These cars performed like they had V-8's. With a front wheel drive car, when they accelerate, the drive line is pulling the car. Where ever the front goes the back follows, when you put your foot into it. NOW, if you have a tire problem where they are no longer able to hold the road, the rear will slide all over the place. If this is the case, replace the tires. 1st check the tire pressures! If your car fishtailed on a slippery road where it had just started to rain and oil commonly floats to the surface of the road in the first few minutes that it rains, you need to drive with caution. I drive an old 1981 Mercedes 300 TD wagon. When it is wet, prior to my replacing my tires, the car would slip and slide all over the place in the rain. I recently replaced my tires with a new 80,000 mile tire Cooper came out with and the ride and handling are awesome. The car sticks whether it is wet or dry and the road noise has been cut in half. I had never realized how bad my tires were until I replaced them. My tires still had a legal amount of tread but had start to crack from age. SO, to sum it up: the car in general, is an excellent car with a reasonably reliable record and few weak areas. You have made a good choice for a car.
