2007 honda ridgeline vibration in the steering wheel

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 too own a 2007 Honda ridgeline, driving @ 120km/hr or higher 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. Additional Details - If the tires were bad or had anything wrong with them it should have showed up when they were balanced . I feel that it may be comming from the drivetrain. The honda dealership where I bought the truck tells me that I might have to live with it to. And said they can't check it out at that speeds (thats over the speed limt)

    I am frustrated with the vibration in the front end of my 2007 Honda Ridgeline RTL. I have had to replace the orginal Michelin LTX's at 19,000 miles, and now have to replace the tires again. That is nearly $1,000 each time you need to change the tires!!! I only have 33,000 miles on my truck and am getting pissed and poor at the same time. I have regulary rotate and balance and wheels about every 3,000 miles and have even gotten 2 front end alignments where the tech's find very little wrong. I take very good care of my vehicles and do not abuse them. Is there anyone out there who actually can suggest how to repair the issue? Honda Tech's have been absolutely useless!!

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

I have a 2006 honda ridgeline that has a shimmy at highway speed only starts at 73 74 and does not stop.


Is there any evidenced or knowledge of this vehicle having been in an accident? It's possible that a half shaft is bent (although seemingly unlikely) or maybe the carrier bearing for the driveshaft is bad.

If none of the parts you replaced made a difference, I'd be considering bearings. Is the shimmy felt mostly in the body of the vehicle or in the steering wheel? If mostly in the body, the issue is probably related to the rear axle. If the steering wheel shakes, the issue is likely related to the front axle.

My car vibrate at 100-120km/hr i have bought new tires and done the wheel balncing but it still vibrate and whenever i tried to apply the break at this speed it vibrate serously. it's a 2001 mazda mpv


This is due to poor settings of the wheel bearings,tyres,- check balancing once again, wheel drums/ brake pads,suspension , joints and steering.
In all the entire front suspension must be checked, the WHELL ALIGNMENT must be checked with precision and each of the wheels must be checked for damage on hub, axle or chassis.

When you drive between 100-120km/hr the vibration get very bad but when you drive after 120km/hr


If the vibration is related to speed, and goes away at different speeds higher and lower, it is likely to be a wheel balance problem. Have the wheels balanced at a tyre shop. If it is under braking only, the brake discs are warped.

If you have vibration in your steering wheel, I would have your CV joints checked out or it might be your front wheel bearings. The vibration coming from those two problems would get a little more intense as your speed increases. Are your tires in good shape? Did it vibrate before you got your brakes done?

Steering wheel of my Toyota Corolla LE 2007 vivrates


Hello. A vibration in the steerign wheel indicates an issue with the front tires. They are either out of balance, and would need to be rebalanced, or it is possible (although remotely) that the tire(s) may be compromised (after hitting a pothole), the belts in the tire may be corrupted. What I would suggest is to take the car to a reputable tire place, and get the balance checked. While the tire is on the balancer, the Tech will be able to see if the tire is out-of-round due to possible road damage. Probably just a tire balance problem. Thanks for choosing FixYA for assistance.
