Anybody with their frontier experiencing this issue? I took it in twice already. They gave me new Michelin tires the second time around. Still vibrating. Funny thing is, they gave me a loaner which was the same truck and it had the same vibration! Just opened a case# hopefully a Nissan “specialist” will have better input and hopefully a solution. Mind you I have a 2011 with 130k and it runs great, no vibration.

It is something mechanical. I swapped wheels from my 2011 onto my 2019. And the 19 still had vibration with my 11 wheels on it, while the 11 didn’t have any, with the midnight edition wheels on it. I know for certain it’s something mechanical. I’ve done everything possible as far as it being the rims or tires. The vibration is not suppose to be there on a new vehicle period! The problem is, most people don’t wanna put up a fight against these manufacturers. And they know this. So unless they get enough people complaining, nothing will be done about it! I’m hoping everyone who has this issue will fight it, then the manufacturer will have no choice but to fix this issue. If you search for 2017 or newer midnight edition frontiers, you will find many of them with low mileage for sale. This just tells me people don’t wanna deal with the issue and they are selling them for someone else to deal with it! And that it is an ongoing issue. Bring it in man, and make them fix it. Or else sue them. That’s what I’m going to have to do from what it looks like.

While I do get some vibration in steering wheel between 55-65 it completely goes away if I’m on the highway going 70 +. I was even going 80, 85 and it’s smooth.

Also at about 63-65 mph I do get a slight hum or a howl. It’s not loud, and you can only hear it with the windows up and radio off. Started at 1500 miles and hasn’t gotten any worse. When I go to dealer for 5k services I will bring the issue up.

it does get less at higher speeds but I still feel it and it’s still not supppse to have any vibration. It’s brand new!
If they have a used 2012-2015 on the lot, take it for a test drive and you should notice how much smoother it is!

I would keep taking it back to dealer and tell them what you did to rule out tires/wheels. Most likely something in the driveline. axle/differential/rotor/brakes...something. can you tell if it is coming from front or rear? is the vibe thru steering wheel or can you feel it from the floor or seat or while applying brake ?

I planned to do exactly that. I just opened a case number with 800-Nissan1. It’s in the steering wheel the strongest, but also felt in the seat and floor.

I’ve got a 2018 Midnight 4x4 with and have put 15k miles on it, no vibration that I’ve noticed at all. Does have a rattle behind the instrument panel at idle in drive though.

I think the 4x4 doesn’t have this issue. Actually, After all this blows over, that’s what I was thinking about getting.

Zag, my father has a 2019 2WD SV and it doesn’t have vibration. I would consider it way smoother then the midnight. So yeah I know there is a difference. I always chalked it up to be out of balance tires and 18 inch wheels compared to 16 inch. I bet I’m wrong though.
