Hi....I feel the steering wheel gets little vibrations at 65MPH and also interestingly I dont find this problem when I drive at same speed on high ways...however I am not able to guess when this problem is causing...I guess this would be wheel balancing issue...
Can you please advice how important to fix this issue...it causes any further wheel shaking and damage further...thanks

Re: Santa Fe 2003 steering wheel vibrates at 65MPH
It depends how bad its vibrating yes it does req rebalancing the longer you leave this more components will wear to like track rod ends,uneven tyre wear caused by tracking issues if money is tight at the moment you could try swapping front wheels with rear if you have two trolley jacks & tyres have decent tread hope that sheds some light onto situation.

the vibration can be your tires, it may need balance, or the tire is out of round. I had seen the tires wear unevenly can cause this. what I mean is because this 4 wheel all the time design, if any of the tire is worn more than the rest can also do that.
the noise is a different thing, it can be a ball joint or tie rod end
hi dont want to worry you, but i would get the engine mounts checked out they might not have tightend them enough after doing your belt, is it a bad vibration? does it only happen when starting and brakeing? is it a vibration or a plastic rubbing noise? as this could be the wheel arch protector not screwed up correctly, or even the timing belt cover rubbing on the belt...just a couple of things you can check out...hope this helps
do u feel the vibration in the steering wheel or in the seat,i bet the most vibration was coming out of the front brakes and a little out of the rear brakes,u might want to change the rear brakes if the vibration is still annoying,also were the front wheels torqued to spec when installed?? if not u might end up with warped front brakes again,hope this helped
The disks may be warped, which will cause a vibration under braking. Also if it's an ABS system, the vibration is normal but only under heavy braking, and should not continue to vibrate when working properly.
My 2003 honda accord was doing this too. The problem is the inner CV axle bearings. The fix is to replace both CV axles. When you choose your CV axle choose a new one not a reman, there are known problems with used CV axles. It's not a hard job. It took me 1hr to do both sides on a lift.
