Question about 2006 Honda Ridgeline
I own a 2007 Honda ridgeline, driving @ 120km/hr on the highway, I have a vibration in the steering wheel. All tires have been previously balanced. Honda dealership tells me that it is something I may have to live with. Do any Honda Ridgeline owners out there have this same problem? If you do, please reply. Additional Details - If the tires were bad or had anything wrong with them it should have showen up when they were balanced . I feel that it may be comming from the rack or maybe a tierod end . The honda dealership where I bought the truck tells me that I might have to live with it. This is the first honda I ever owned . Good impression for me by honda .Open for answers.
I used to work for honda and found this issue only once. After checking the driveshaft, differential, and tires, i found that the drive axles were the problem with vibration in the steering or upon acceleration.

That is definitely not normal,i have been a Honda technician for may years and have seen this problem several times.most Honda dealer have a funky new tire balance that does match balancing with road force,have them match balance the tires and do road force,this will take the heavy point of the tire and the light point of the rim,they will index these points and break down the tire and turn the tire to match the light point of the rim,this will also show any non visible bad tire,there is a roller that comes down on the tire as its being balanced and puts approx 9000 pounds of pressure on tire,and measures any excessive internall run out that is not visible,anything above 40lbs of road force after this procedure is not normal,and the tire is no good,most bigger Honda dealer within any major city should have this machine and will know what you are talking about,good luck,Honda should cover that under warranty,especially if it has low kms,don't take no for an answer,go to customer relations
