Vibrating in steering wheel during accelaration over 50mph

5

Asked by May 16, 2013 at 07:10 AM about the 2010 Chevrolet Impala LS

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I got an oil change and tire rotation yesterday. Today I noticed on the highway that my
car's steering wheel is shaking when I accelerate to 50mph or so. If I let go of the gas,
it vibrates until it falls back down to 45mph. I noticed that if I go 65-70mph, the vibrating
stops. Could it be the tires weren't balanced or it was done improperly? Or do I have
something bigger to worry about?

Also, my tires are only 6 months old.

Alright. I just made appointment to bring it back to the people that messed it up. Hopefully it is nothing more serious.

Most probably the balance is out on the front tires, or the tires are worn incorrectly that the vibration exists. You might need an alignment.

Make sure they re-check the balance of all the front wheels. If it happened after the wheel exchange, it more than likely will be in the repositioned wheel. Have the front bearings checked if it continues.

check your steering wheel gearbox.. Does your steering wheel have a lot play? if no your are ok, it is just unbalaced tires..

    Front end vibration at over 45-50mph and higher. It goes away while accelerating then returns at regular highway speeds. Wheels are balanced.
