Why Is Your Honda Shaking?

why is your honda shaking?

Bob Howard Honda can help you learn why your Honda is shaking.

As a driver, one of the most uneasy feelings is when you can feel your car vibrate when driving. Is it a flat tire, did that giant pothole ruin my suspension, or did I break the driveshaft? There are a few components that might be the culprit as to why your vehicle is shuddering, and the potential damage can vary greatly. The most probable cause of the shaking most often occurs in the vicinity of your vehicle’s tires and rims. The tires and rims connect your vehicle to the road, and if anything is out of place, will notice. More seriously, it might be a broken transmission mount or a broken control arm. These more serious failures could leave you stuck on the side of the road.

If you got new wheels and tires recently, then the vehicle shaking could be caused by the tires not getting balanced correctly. Tire balancing ensures the weight of the tire and wheel is. If you notice the tire vibration while you are driving, it might be an unbalanced tire. If the new tires are properly balanced, but the car is still shuddering, make sure the tires are inflated to the correct air pressure, and be sure to check if the lugnuts are completely tightened and make sure the tire pressure is correct. If you find that your tires are the root of the shudder, you should have them checked out immediately.

If the car vibrates when braking, that is a pretty strong indicator that you should have your brakes looked at. The most obvious reason for your steering wheel vibration is warped brake rotors. When you press the brake pedal, brake pads compress against the brake rotors to bring your vehicle to a stop. A smooth brake rotor surface provides smooth braking. A warped rotor surface will cause shakes when braking, kind of like how a brick road feels rougher than an asphalt highway. Other possible causes of the shaking include frozen calipers or damaged shocks. If you feel your steering wheel wobble, bring it to us, and we’ll check it out.
