What could be the problem with the car?

The car which we bought recently (Nissan Sentra) seems to be giving me some trouble, which I noticed only today.
There is a lot of vibration when I drive below 20 and over 110 KMPH. What could be the problem? It vibrates in such a way that I kind of sway sidewards and forth.
While I have to take this to the dealership this weekend, what could be the reason for this? Any ideas so that I (well, I will get my hubby to check) can fix it?

Yeah this was the first thing my hubby checked and brought it up to what the manual said. But that didn't fix the problem totally. However the vibration did come down it seems. He was saying that maybe there is a flat spot somewhere in the Tyre....other than that we cant think of anything else.

check the rim of tyre for any structural changes.....also wheel alignment and balancing

next check for a bent driveshaft or for a bad U-joint



you bought a certified car, right?

Is there a way to check wheel alignment is correct at home? Yeah, the car is safety certified, if this is what you are talking about.

How old is the car? Anything could be wrong... including the alternator (if it has one). Check with a mechanic.

Alternator is a device which looks like a motor. It is hooked up to your car engine and a belt goes over its pulley to make it turn as the engine turns. This allows the alternator to produce electricity and charge your battery as the car runs.

Rakhiji ... silly question but need to be asked ... new car? right? Strange for a new car but could just be engine timing needing some adjustments unless a lemon ... it happens.

I owned Pintara (1987?)long long time back while still on a budget ... decided never to buy Nissan again. You could have opted for Honda or Toyota eyes closed ... seldom you hear complaints.

Go to showroom ... complain ... LOUD.
