Asked by Nov 17, 2013 at 09:31 AM about the 2002 Nissan Pathfinder LE 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I took it to the Nissan store and they test drove and aligned the tires. It still shimmies around 60-65 mph.  It is a totally stock 4x4.

Most likely a bad tire, bent wheel, front end problem (ball joint, tie rod end, etc.), or possibly even a bad brake rotor, or caliper. HTH. -Jim

Very true about the shaking, check all this and you must find the problem, don't forget to check the propeller shaft spicer bearing it could also cause shaking.
