Hi all!

Has anybody who owns 2WD MO noticed that it pulls to the right when accelerating? i have had my wheels balanced and alignment done. still can feel it.

is it torque steering or is it BS from the dealership?

The 2WD Murano will torque steer more than the AWD model, which would have probably diverted some power to the rear before the front wheels are overwhelmed.

245hp to the front wheels, I would imagine there is some torque steer.

I have a '03 FWD MO and when I punch it I get torque steer. I read a review in one of the car magazines and they mentioned it, so I was expecting it to happen. The tires always pulls to the right for me. I figure it is due to the slope of the road. Since I replaced the OEM tires with Toyo Proxies the torque steer is reduced but still there. It only lasts a few yards then settles down.

It's torque steer.
They have minimized it, but you can still feel it pulling.
It will always pull to the right.

A few years ago, 245 HP to a FWD would have been nearly impossible to control. (Of course a few years ago, 245 HP to a FWD would have trashed the differential/half shafts, etc)
