Same problem only its not constant now. At 55-80mph it shakes noticeably in the steering wheel but it will shake for like 3-4 seconds and then not shake for 3-4 seconds then shake for 3-4 seconds then not and on and on. Its really weird and annoying. Its almost like the front wheels are not balanced but every few seconds, the vibration cancel each other out. I'm probably just going to get rid of the car although I love my lara. I just can't deal with it anymore.
*Old* So I went to Savannah for St. Patty's day so I drove the Solara (2002 SE 5spd) and between 60 mph and 80 mph, the car starts to shake. The shake gets pretty violent as I near 80. I have noticed this for a while but I attributed it to the wheels be unbalanced so I had them balanced before I left. The tech said they were really out of balance but that they were able to be balanced (so no warps).
The shake is friggen annoying and its making me want to trade because I cant figure out whats causing it. I went to the dealership to get a new cat as its still under warranty and asked about the shaking. I told the tech that I just had the wheels balanced and the shake is not only with brakes. It shakes when braking and accelerating between 60-80 mph. He said its probably the half shafts but wouldnt that make the shake at all speeds?
Anyone have any idea?
My 2002 manual solara se shakes at speeds 60-80 mph. Shake happens when braking or accelerating within 60-80 mph. Car shakes but clearly visible in steering wheel. Wheels were just balanced.
