Question about Suzuki Grand Vitara
The car jutters while driving over 6o kms an hour
Posible problems , listed from cheapest to most expensive.
Tires out of ballance
Broken chord in a tire
Loose ( worn ) tie rod ends
Wheel bearings ( but not likely)
If you have the tools , and a good safe flat driveway , jack up 1 corner of the car , spin the tire by hand and watch if it spins true , or wobles. while your at it , firmly grab the tire , and try to wiggle it side to side , in and out , back and forth. Repeat process for each wheel. If everything seems ok , I would think about getting tires ballanced. Probly about $ 12 each.
General observation is that if you feel the shake in the steering wheel , front tires are the problem , If you feel it on your bottom , rear tires. Good luck with that.
If you want to skip the whole jacking up the car proceedure , go directly to the wheel ballancing , and ask the mechanic to keep an eye out for "wheel out of true" while they spin on the ballancer.
