    does the vibration worsen when you apply the brakes or do you feel the pedal pulsing against your foot?

I Have had a similar problem and it was a bad tire. A broken belt. You can take the front tire and put it on the back and put the back tire on the front and if it changes then it is the tire. Hope this helps

If the vibration is always there and it gets worse the faster you go then you have bad tire or tires on the front.

I have a 2007 Pontiac Torrent FWD with a violent low speed vibration. we have replaced the lower control arm assembly and the hub bearings along with the brake pads and rotors.


Struts would not cause vibration problems, A CV joint could, turn your vehicle in a parking lot hard right, make a circle than turn left make a circle ,if you hear a noises you have a cv joint problem. If you feel vibration on the steering wheel its in the front, if you feel it in the seat its in the rear.
Tires out of round & Balance very common as well brake rotors cause vibrations.

I feel a vibration on my 2009 chevrolet impala at freeway speeds. I resurfaced the front rotors and installed new front brake pads. What can be causing the vibration? Car has 195000 miles roughly.


I would certainly check the wheel hubs, the main bearings are in them. Also, struts or shocks could be bad or you maybe needing a front end alignment.

Noise And Vibration 2005 Buick Rondezvous making a growling noise and vbration from front end,Have put on new tires,brakes,and had alligned and still no change.It is al wheel drive.


With the front end on jack stand's put the shifter in neutral put your hand on the coil spring spin the wheel as fast as you can with the other hand see if you can feel any roughness in the bearing.Do the same on both side's just because you can't feel play in the wheel bearing doesn't mean it's good.Let me know what you find.

I brought my SUV in a garage this summer and they fix everything exept the problem and also charged me the bill. So i found this website. Can you tell me what could bring vibration when you apply...


This sounds to me like an issue with your front brakes, these symtoms can be caused by the front rotors on your vehicle being warped and causing the vibration when you apply the brakes. I would have the front rotors measured to check for run-out and also to see if they need to be replaced or if they can be machined to be made smooth again.

Hope this helps with your situation..

Had bad vibration in front end of car when brakes applied,installed new rotors and pads,still have slight vibration when brakes applied.


do u feel the vibration in the steering wheel or in the seat,i bet the most vibration was coming out of the front brakes and a little out of the rear brakes,u might want to change the rear brakes if the vibration is still annoying,also were the front wheels torqued to spec when installed?? if not u might end up with warped front brakes again,hope this helped

No clunking until replaced front end brake pads and rotors. Pontiac Montana 2002 not a FWD. I'm not 100% sure but I also believe I can feel a vibration on steering wheel coming from front.


1. Have the caliper checked if the retaining bolts are fully tightened and all shims and pins are properly installed. 2. Was your rotors resurfaced??If not, The new pads are flat(new), and the rotor might be uneven causing the pads to vibrate. 3. If they aren't the rotors, inspect the CV shafts for tightening, or damage. Hopefully this helps
