Hello and Welcome! I'm Billy and i will assist you with your inquiry. Feel free to ask if any further info is needed.
Were the engine and transmission and exhaust mounts checked?

Customer reply replied 3 years ago
Given the context of the visit to the garage, an oil change and brake service, I suspect they didn't look any further than CV joints at this time.
Nissan Mechanic: Billy, Trainer/Master tech. replied 3 years ago
Hello again,
Would you be able to check those, so we proceed with the diagnostics if the problem persists?
Given the symptoms, these would be the most likely items, i would check them first. There still would be other possibilities, but we work our way from the most common causes.
Regards,
Billy

What Customers are Saying:

I was in trouble with an electrical issue with my brand new Nissan. I frantically went online trying to find help and luckily I found your site. I reached a NISSAN tech named RIP. He was absolutely tremendous and helped me work through the issue. What a pro!
