I used to work as an automotive service advisor and went to a week long MOOG class on suspension. I never came across a vehicle that wandered as bad as the Versa unless it had worn suspension parts or the alignment was out of spec. We're talking about a car with under 7000 miles here. My 25 year old Toyota pickup with 300,000 miles has never been aligned or had any suspension parts replaced, and it drives perfectly on the highway.
I've had several people tell me the problem is a result of the Versa's narrow track but my 25 year old Suzuki Swift is narrower yet it doesn't wander at all.
Some have suggested the tire pressure is wrong, and indeed the dealership delivered the car with 45 psi in all tires. It's one of the first things I checked and set pressure to 33 psi all around which is the manufacturers recommended pressure. No change.
I would like to know the difference in the original alignment specs vs. the revised specs in the service bulletin and why they were revised.
