I would have the front end looked at. It may be the tire, rotor or wheel bearing. It might also be the CV joint. They are all very important safety issues since you might lose control of the car.

The vibration is felt in the seat from 55 - 65 mph, when accelerating. I have new tires, just balanced and rims straightened, so no damage. Is it possible to be the front axles? The passenger side has some...


Unless you have AWD (all wheel drive), there is no driveshaft to check. But the inner CV (constant velocity) joints do wear out eventually and will give you a vibration under acceleration. If this problem occurs only when you are accelerating, it is time to replace the axle shaft that is worn. It could be just one or both. If the condition exists under any other circumstance, the suspension and steering components need to be checked as well as the front wheel bearings.

This could be a loose hub bearing causing the hub to move in and out .When accelerating the weight shift will be less on the front wheels so the hub may be moving in and out during this .Have this checked soon :)

Subaru vibration


I had similar problem with my '99 outback. Replaced the front half shafts and seemed much better. A few months later seemed to be comming back so replaced the driver side shaft again and the problem disappeared. I had put in rebuilt shafts and the driver side shaft was not rebuilt correctly.

Honda Accord 2003 - Engine and steering vibration


My 2003 honda accord was doing this too. The problem is the inner CV axle bearings. The fix is to replace both CV axles. When you choose your CV axle choose a new one not a reman, there are known problems with used CV axles. It's not a hard job. It took me 1hr to do both sides on a lift.
