Most likely with this problem is the front tires. The tires maybe " out of balance " or " out of round " causing the vibration at certain speeds.

    The new info you have given would rule out the tires as the problem. With this new info "also the shaking only occurs while accelerating. If i let off the gas and coast the shaking stops imediatly", I would suspect the some of the front end suspension part being out worn out and loose. A alignment shop would be able to proper tests for worn out parts. I would also have them check the motor mounts.

Why does it start to shake at around 50 MPH only when the accelerator is pressed?


Do you notice any check engine lights coming on the dash when this happens, also has the vehicle had any recent repairs or any reason why this may be happening? Any input from you is helpful. I will check my resources and see what we can find out. Please advise

Front end shakes 60 mph


Your tires may be unbalanced. Any difference in tire weight distribution around it's circumference, icreases as driving speed increases due to centrifugal force... that's why the problem may not be noticed at slower speeds. This condition may be felt on the steering wheel.
Another possible cause is warped brake disks... it's possible this condition may be felt on both; steering wheel and brake pedal.

When accelerating from approximately 0 - 20 mph


My immediate quick test would be to move the front tires to the back (and backs to front, of course) then try it out. If the vibration is still there but feels like it's coming from somewhere else (vibration could feel like it's in in steering wheel or seat), you've got a broken belt or bent rim (wheel). Don't want to get your hands dirty? Get all 4 wheels balanced -5 to 10 bucks per wheel.

When i go over 55mph my front end trembles so bad it can be felt on the steering wheel


There are multiple reasons the front end could be shaking.

1. Tires are out of balance or one has become separated causing a knot.

2. One of the front bearings is going out.

3. One of the 2 front cv drive shafts are wearing out or bent.

4. Inner and Outer Tie rod ends needing replaced

Above are the 4 main causes of vibration in the front end being able to be felt in the steering wheel. i would first take the vehicle to the tire shop and have them check the balance on all 4 wheels. Also, while they have the wheels off, ask them nicely if they could check out the front end for you.

At 40 mph the car starts to shake. It last to 5o


I have this same car with exactly the same problem. Begins shaking at 40mph and stops shaking as soon as you let off the gas, but then begins again as soon as you press on the gas and smooths out as you get over 50. And the shaking is not felt through the steering wheel. Solution: Replace the transmission mounts. There are two of them, one on each side mounted on the frame right next to the shock strut. There is also a front and rear engine mount, but I replaced the two as described and shaking is gone.
