Ok so speeds 50 and beyond my whole car vibrates like a bitch and my steering wheel shakes :0 the shifter goes crazy and it feels like my damn engine is gonna fall out while I'm goin down the highway! WTF is wrong with my car??? I was goin down the highway and I went from 0-60 then shifted to 5th at 60mph then got up to 90 and the car vibrated pretty bad. It got worse the faster I went and I can feel it in the seat! It's like a ****in mesage chair ... Help :-/

Not at all. I've let go of the wheel before, to c if the front end is aligned, and it stays straight so I'm assuming that's not the prob? Idk... Like it's fine up to 50 but then it feels like ur driving some 30 year old car... Somethin is ****ed

Start with the basics. Check your tire pressures, balance, etc. Check your alignment. Check your driveline.

^check all of that, then move on and check out your wheel bearings. i had a car come in to work the other day that had the EXACT same problem, it got EXTREMLY bad any time you would motion the steering wheel to the left. the vibrations start at about 35mph. it turned out being the LEFT FRONT wheel bearing was bad

Yes they are balanced from the factory, Yes they loose weights and need to be rebalanced from time to time. They also need to be rebalanced every time the tires are changed.

I had the exact same problem once. Took it to a mechanic and he told it was a bad wheel bearing. So I took it home to inspect it further and figured out my driver front wheel was loose. problem solved.

If that isent it, get the front wheels rebalanced. Shouldnt cost you more than 30 dollars.

Start with the simple stuff!!
