If it starts shaking after 100kph then its either the power steering pump or the steering box is going bad. Do you hear wizzing noises when you turn the wheel right and left (similar to a turbo boost sound)? Have you recently notices problems with steering like being delayed?

The only other thing that would cause something like that would be if the tires are worn badly on places. If this was the problem, it would not really shake the wheel - but when the tires hit a bump or notch in the road it would allow them to go in that direction easier then usual. So it would seem like something was grabbing the wheel or changing the course while driving.

If you steering box is going bad, you will notice other things like a delay from when the wheels start to respond after you have turned your steering wheel in a certain direction. if your turning right and there seems to be a delay as to when your wheels begin to turn then you need to have the box checked.

After checking the box if that is not the problem, try adding power steering fluid and see if that fixes the problem. If it doesn't then have the power steering pump checked.

My vw polo playa is jerking and when u are driving at 140km it starts shaking.

at that speed, it can only be wheel balancing,get them dynamically balanced and tell the idiot thats doing them what speeds you intend to do,that way he/she will have to take them upto the kind of speed you do.......not just 100kph.

It recently started shaking hard that my steering wheel is vibrating...what could it be?

sounds like your front end is out of alignment check your tires for wear other than in the middle and take to tire shop to see if the tires are balanced right

Car vibrates above 40 MPH

your wheels more than likely needs to be balanced one or more are out of round if you had the tires rotated before the alignment this would make the vibrating more noticible.but balancing should solve your problem.

Heavy vibration with speed over 100kph

Sounds like your wheels are not properly balanced,worn,or in need of
an alignment. Make sure all the tires have the correct air pressure in
them first,before getting them High Speed Balanced.Good luck.

My express van shakes vigorously at about 45 to 50 mph. I have to slam on the brakes and slow down for it to stop, my friend has one that does the same thing..

I highly recommend a front end alignment, and tire balancing. While it's being checked out, they can tell you if the front shock/struts are worn as well.
Alignment is most likely the culprit..

Steering wheel wiggles when driving

The 3 common things are,
.......a bad tire ( a bad belt in a tire or tires ).
.......a bent rim.
.......if at speeds over 20.....possibly the above plus wheel balance.

The uncommon things are,
......bad or seized CV joint.
......bent front suspension components ( and /or rotor hub assembly )
......wheel alignment.
