Steering wheel shakes when accelerating on high speed

Asked by Feb 13, 2014 at 04:06 AM about the 2010 Chevrolet Malibu LTZ

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hey guys. I've been having a problem for the past 7 months, the steering wheel seems to
shake only when accelerating on high speed, it doesn't shake when accelerating on a low
speed or below (60 mp/h - 100 km/h). And i noticed also when accelerating, when the
RPM is higher the shake is weaker but when accelrating and RPM is low or on a high
gear the shake is more powerful. I have a 2010 chevy Malibu LTZ 3.6L V6...

Check your tires for wear, and or a belt within the tire might have shifted. Also have the balance check on the tires. Lug nuts loose? Tighten with proper torque ratings. Then have the alignment on the car, and check for any loose suspension components. Do you rotate your tires every 5-10K miles?

The steering on my 05 shakes when idle or at Interstate speeds. GM recalled it, claimed to have fixed it, but it still goes on.

Well it's fixed. All i did is good old-fashioned wheel balancing at any tire shop
