I can feel vibrations with my Subaru 2000 (milage: 160 000 km).The vibrations come at speed 40 km/hre and near 80 km/hre.These vibrations come a lost of power.
The problem comes on nice days when the atmospheric pression is high but very rare on days when humidity is high and the atmospheric pressure is low !
We tried changing the spark plugs, the wiring, the air filter,the gas filter,clean the injecters without result.
Could the automatic transmission caused such a problem?

All vehicles have two speeds at which vibrations are combined and therefore noticeable. Usually, these occur between 40 and 50, then between 80 and 90 by design. If you can't find one of those spots then you have a worn part in your suspension. Put car on lift supporting all 4 wheels in the air then forcefully push and pull at suspension parts to locate the one that isn't quite tight. There's your culprit.

if you google "grand vitara vibration" you will find a discussion board about the many many grand vitaras getting around with a vibration problem. I happen to be one of these people and am seriously thinking of selling the car after all the problems I have. It appears to be a drive train design fault which will cost a fortune to fix, believe me its not a tyre problem, ive had 4 wheel alignlents and balances and it never seems to fix the problem.Take it to a mechanic and let them have a good look at it.
Hi there. There are a number of things that can cause these symptoms. The most common is that the tires on the front are worn unevenly or that the car needs a front end alignment. take the care to a garage that you trust and have them check the tires and the front end alignment. good luck.
Could be ball joints loose...jack up wheel and check for play
Could be bad hubs...the metal part of the tire wheel...i had this problem once..check for obvious damage like a dent or cut in metal
Could be caliper sticking
Could be mud in and around the wheels
