Pathfinder 4WD 6-cyl

I recently purchased a 2005 Nissan Pathfinder, I started to notice a problem on my first road trip while out on route 95 going to philadelphia. The vehicle becomes very hard to control while going over bumps at 55-65 mph especially going around long sweeping turns. When you hit a bump the steering wheel becomes uncontrollable and the vehicle want to shift into the other lane pending on the type of turn (left or right hand). No luck after three service visits and many phone calls to Nissan North America. Contacted attorney and I am pursuing it through the courts under the lemon law. The dealer told me they are aware of the problem but Nissan has no fix at this time. Very disappointed with Nissan to say the least. Thanks for reading. 12/16/05.
