Question about 2006 Toyota Highlander

3 Answers

With the rear windows down my Highlander vibrates heavily.

When I put the rear windows down on my 2006 Highlander and the speed gets up above 35 mph or so there I experience a horrible vibration. At 60 mph it gets so bad that the front passenger seat vibrates noticably if it's not occupied. This has happened with previous Corolla and Camrys -- cab you tell me the cause and whether or not it can be fixed?

    The vibration appears to be less prominent but still present. It's the worst when the front windows are closed and both back windows are open.

    Does the vibration occur when all four windows are down?

You are cupping air in the vehicke. To eliminate it, don't open opposing windows the same amount. If you have the driver's window opened, also open the opposite side rear window. Baffels on the windows will help.

Inspect the universal joint. See if the driveshaft has any play in it. This could also be caused by a bad, dry, or damaged wheel bearing. Those items can be fixed. Hope this helped.

I have a 2004 Highlander and also experience this. I don't think that my passenger seat shakes though. When a passenger in the back seat opens the rear window, I usually have to crack one of the front windows to make the "air" vibration go away. I think that this "air" vibration is caused by the shape of the car's interior.

Why Vibration in transmission

Vibration in transmission


I do not know if this vehicle has a torque converter lockup or not, but sounds like it. Does the transmission stop shaking when you go over 65? Some vehicles have a torque converter lockup, which means when the vehicle is traveling at a certain speed in high gear the torque converter "locks" and there is no slippage to the transmission resulting in better fuel economy. if the torque converter doesn't "unlock" when you slow down to say 45 then the engine will "lug" causing vibration. If this is the case you are not hurting anything by driving, just shift to 3 when it shakes then upshift under lighter load, or take it to a shop that replaces transmission sensors.

Windows vibrate at speeds above 50 mph on Nissan PF 2008 model?


If you're running high mileage tires or let one run low, real low on pressure a tire may be damaged. Put on a glove to protect your hand. Run your out stretched hand over surface of tire sides and tread, any bumps are suspect. Wire protrusion means stop and put on the spare.

My car shakes when going above 35 mph. we've balanced tires but it did not work. It comes from the rear but does shake the whole car when going above 35 mph. We have also checked tires for any bumps...


It is not an alignment, but diagnosing it will take some work. You need to jack up the rear of the car and see how much play you have in the wheels. A vibration at 35 mph shows something seriosly wrong - vibrations aren't usually noticeable until 55 and above. I would suspect wheel bearings but it could be a few other things.

When you have the car jacked up see how much play you have side to side and in and out. If you get a lot of side to side play, check the wheel bearings. If you have a lot of in and out play then the axle is suspect.
