Question about Hyundai Accent
Hi, My accent shakes under acceleration around 60-70 mph. Today I had all 4 tires balanced and a front and rear alignment. Still shakes, any ideas?

I agree, it sounds like a malformed tire. Too much rubber on one side of the tire, uneven steel belt, tread separation etc. This is easy to check if you jack up each tire and hold a ruler close to the tire and spin the tire while watching for high spots. After identifying which tire it is, go back to the dealer and point them to the right one.

Most common problem would be tires are out a balance. Or, the tires are out of round ( meaning the tires have a hop to it; not completely round ).

I would say you should definitely do an alignment. Fixes it 9/10, along with the balancing of course. And, there is always the possibility of a worn tire being the issue.

hi this could be a couple of things, first, engine mounts these are the rubber and metal mounts that hold the engine in if one of them or maybe 2 or them are broken or warn this will have the effect you talk about, the best way to test this would be to, put the parking brake on as hard as you can, start the car, put it in second or if auto put it in 3rd drive, then try to move and keep watching the engine to see if it rocks back and forth, other thing it could be is the balance weights on the drive shaft/s have they come off, some vehicles have extra weights added to the drive shafts to keep them balanced at high to moderate speed, they are like a black rubber clamp thing that wraps around the drive shaft itself or they also could be flat weights like the ones you find on car tyres ( picture added for this), check to see if yours had them or if they are loose or also check the CV joints make sure the bearings are not warn, but you would normally get a tick tick tick sound when driving if this is the case..hope this helps

for rear end shaking on 1999 silverado z71, 4x4 I replaced the leaf spring shackles which is a common problem with the silverados. Since then I have had no problem. Up until then, every time I hit a bump in the road the truck would shake so bad I thought I'd loose control. Good luck with your repairs.
