I got a 3-year Nissan X-Trail ST, recently I drove on a freeway, when the speed over 110 KPH, the car started trembling a bit, switching between 2WD/4WD/Auto didn't help. When the speed droppted to 100 KPH it was fine again.
The problem is still there, what part should I have it checked?

Deeeeeear Johnny,
Could be a wheel balance problem, you can't always feel it thru the steering wheel due to good power steering or it may be a tailshaft balance. Not likely though unless you suspect that in a previous life it had been rough 4x4 driving(over logs or boulders etc). Rus.

Have wheel balance and alignment done last week, the problem was fixed perfectly. Cost $85 in total.
Cheers.

Doesn't an X trail drop out of 4wd when it gets over 30kph or gets hot or something like that

One part many people don't check is Universal Joints, with wear and tear they will exhibit those symptoms at around 105-110k's, another thought if wheel balance doesn't fix the problem.

The Jackaroo did it until rotated the tyres - edges were scalloped. Then smooth as silk.

mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm!!!! in any State except NT could be that your car was 'telling you something'. Perhaps you need to get the nut behind the wheel checked!! With the high road death toll over the recent Christmas period, road safety needs to start with keeping within the speed limit.

Cheers (t.i.c.)
