Vibration over 120km

Hey Guys,

I have an annoying vibration once I hit 120km and continues as the speed climbs. It feels like the passenger front end, tires are brand new but it may be a bent rim I guess.

Any ideas? I read that it may be a hydro-bushing on the wishbone arm.

Any help would be great!

P.S. Engine mount was just replaced.

Hi D-Jack,

Was your dealer able to diagnose the issue? I encourage you to book an appointment with them if you haven't done so already; they are in the best position to assist. :)

Hi D-Jack,

You can find a dealer for a second opinion here.

I hope this helps! :)

Did you have the issue before you put the new tires on it?

Wouldn't be engine or tranny mounts. More likely out of balance tire (I'd recheck the balancing, bent rim, maybe bad tire internally (yes it's possible), loose tie rod or ball joint, rust/debris between wheel mounting area and rotor, etc. So a few things to check.

But to isolate the problem down to a wheel or tire (or not), rotate the tires (fronts to back and vice versa).

Tire balancing, most defenetly. Had same prb when I bought new set. Vibration while driving >120km/h.
When I went back to the shop, they rebalanced the whees an everything was O.K.

My sister had the car for a year while I was overseas and when we got back there was a vibration but then the tire blew so I thought that was the issue then we had a vibration at idle and at higher speeds so I switched out the mount which solved the vibration at idle but we still have the vibration at high speeds which is where I am at now
