well you could have several reasons for this problem. you could have a bad belt in a tire. it could also have a loose ball joints, or drag link this apllies to the steering linkage. it could be a warped rotor. or it could be that the hub is a little loose. I would suggest jacking the front od the car and use jack stands to support it. take the wheels off and start to inspect all those items i just mentioned. if the wobble feels like it's in the rear of the vehicle do the same there as well. i would do this as soon as possible . a severe wobble could lead to a bad situation if not taken care of. please rate this...thanks
