Car shaking when reaching 30 mph


Asked by Jan 10, 2016 at 07:38 PM about the 2004 Mitsubishi Endeavor Limited AWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

When I am reaching 30 mph my 2004 mitsubishi  endeavor
starts to shake, but when I pass 40 mph it stops. If I
accelerate fast it won't shake. Just when I acceleration at a
normal rate. I was told it might be hub bearing, what are
your thoughts...

If the hub bearings, (front wheel bearings) where bad, they would be making a noise, and have play in them. Do you feel the shake in the steering wheel, or the seat? I'm thinking tires more than anything.

I agree. Jack it up, and no NOT put your legs or feet under the car unless it's on jack-stands and secure. Then if there is play, that the wheel will move in or out from the car it could be bearings or hub assembly.

I took it to fire stone and they said the tires were good.they were the ones that said it might be the bearing, they they might have grooves in them. It feels more like the seat shake, the steering wheel doesn't shake when the car shakes. But as soon as I take my foot of the gas it stops. I usually take my foot off the gas as soon as I feel it shake.

Then the problem is in the rear end, Have the bearing checked if you say the tires are good.

Ok, thanks you

Did you ever figure this out? I just purchased a 2004 as well and I'm experiencing the exact same shaking at 30mph and stops when I take my foot off the gas. Help!!

I got rid of the truck. I loved it, but I needed something that was reliable
