In my Nissan Altima I can feel EVERY bump on the road, every crack, every pavement joint. Dealer tells me it is ‘normal’. Other person at the dealer tells me to sell it and buy something else (nice advice from Nissan). Tires are pretty much new, pressure is what needs to be. The car has just over 10 000 miles. I had it at the dealer a couple of times to eliminate rattles and shakes, and I need this fix again - because of constant shakes. I don’t expect the ride like in Rolls-Roys, but something better that Yugo would be nice. Comfort is one thing, but I also worry about safety. Struts, or ‘shock absorbers’ do not absorb anything, it feels pretty much like the wheels are welded to the car. And it is NOT because of the short wheel-base of the car (another mechanic’s explanation) - the car ‘jumps’ front and then back no matter how slow or fast I drive.
Anybody else with the same issue? What would be the fix? Another (new?) suspension? Different struts?
Different car? If so, which one would be with the smooth and quiet ride?
