2006 Kia Sedona vibration at 65mph on acceleration only


Asked by Oct 26, 2012 at 06:31 PM about the 2006 Kia Sedona EX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

When I start up my 2006 Kia Sedona in the morning and get out on the freeway it runs just fine for about 5 miles or so.  As the van is around 65mph, it begins to shake (vibrate).  If I release the gas pedal the van runs fine, until I press back on the gas.  If I reduce speed to below 55mph the problem is not  hardly noticed.  If I increase speeds up to 80mph the vibration is there but minor.  The vibration is most noticed at 65.

Sounds like it could be a tire or tires out of balance. Inspect rims and tires for anything that should not be there. (Mud). Also missing wheel weights. Hope this helps.


I thought about that, but when I release the gas pedal, the vibration goes away. If it were tires it would be constant. It only happens when speeds are around 65mph (and) gas pedal is being pressed.
