Asked by Feb 20, 2015 at 06:28 PM about the 2006 Hyundai Santa Fe 2.7L GLS FWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

2006 Hyundai Santa Fe V-6 front end shimmies at 80 mph.  Tires are new.  Just replaced
them about 3 months ago.  Doesn't do this unless I get up to that speed.  If I stay under
80 it's fine.

your tires need to be rebalanced

or you may have a bent wheel

could be the first 2 answers, or a bad wheel bearing or a cv joint is wearing out on one of the 1/2 axel shafts, or an alignment, or even a bent or broken steel belt in one of the tires

Thanks all. It's due for an oil change so I'm going to take it in & ask my mechanic to look at all of those suggestions. I really appreciate your responses.
