ok so i hopped in my new car to go to work this morning, cruising along in the city.

soon as i hit the interstate and get it upto 65+ i notice it was hard to keep it in the lanes. it only has 101 miles on it could it already need to be aligned?

I get that a lot too. Don't think its alignment related, most likely has to do with the car's body roll. Try getting a strut bar, makes the ride more stiff not to mention it also helps with cornering. Also try lowering the center of gravity meaning lowering springs, think that helps too.

ok, i didnt know only reason i questioned it is i let go of the wheel for a sec and i drifted into a different lane and normally that when i would go get an alignment

any strut bar better than another?

Try checking to see if all wheels are properly inflated. I had that issue too and once I put some air on one of the tires it went away. As for Strut bar it will totally be up to you, it's all about preference. I personally will like to get a DC Strut bar, just cause it looks beefier. But if you want something cheaper you can go for the UR (Ultra Racing) strut bar, it's about 30-50 bucks cheaper and I hear good things about it.

i've had the drifting problem due to rutted lanes...car was fine on smooth pavement. Even subtle rutting can redirect a small car

My mom's Sentra was like that. It was only 2 months old, and driffted to the left. I gave it back to the dealer and told them to aglin the wheels, and haven't had a problem since.

Check tire pressure. Was it windy at all? Since it's so new they should align it for free if that's the issue.

Versa's are hard to keep in the lane. They like to wander and I read about it alot online from drivers. People say it due to the high roof, high ground clearance, skinny wheels and steering. I noticed it as soon as I got a Versa. I like you thought there was something wrong until I read up on it. Not saying there isn't anything wrong but the Versa will never feel as planted as some other cars IMHO.
