Question about 2006 Suzuki Vitara

1 Answer

Transmission shafts growl and the steering wheel vibrate

Hi my GV 2006 The transmission shafts growl, the sound starts at 60 Km / h.
peaking at 80 Km / hr. and is completely gone at 100km / h. by sharp acceleration, through these speeds the steering wheel vibrate, like if one wheel is out of balance, my local Suzuki shop, have tried to solve the problem, and believes that it can not be better now, the warranty on the car expires 17-10-08 How can I get further, to convince Suzuki to the effect that it is not ok? : I think that it is withdrawing the shafts at the front wheels as does each of these sounds and vibrations at times, the car behaves the same way whether I'm running on the summer tires or winter tires so the tires can not be blamed. I had the car from new, it has been replaced converter in the automatic Transmission 2 times ,2 times the Suzuki lab, worked to alleviate the noise and vibrations, but it is not entirely well yet. Do you think a couple of new drive shafts with all accessories will be able to help? Greetings Michael Petersen Copenhagen Denmark

Either a loose nut or a broken/crack washer /rubber in the front transmition. AThis a headache to any dealer because the fron transmition will be dismantle to check on every piece. The reason it starts a60 is because the force/torque upon the washer and disapears at 100 because the force/torque upon the piece is so big the lock again

My 1999 land-rover discovery is vibrating at 60-80,had the tyres checked all good, any thoughts ?

Depending on the vibration the speed you mention is when drive shaft vibrations are evident. Check all "U" joints for wear,check slip joints for wear especially the front shaft.Check wheel alignment for castor problems and check the steering shocky ( if fitted)

Transmission noise (growl)

It is at least one of your wheel bearings. I had all four of mine replaced before 40000 miles I hope that it is under warrantee

You probably lost the lead balancing weights off the wheels. Get them re balanced.
