Why Does My Car Vibrate While Driving?

Our vehicles are designed so that our drive is smooth and any shock from the road is absorbed through the suspension system. So when you start feeling that your vehicle is vibrating while on the road, you may be alarmed. If you do notice a shaking or vibration while driving, make a mental note of when it happens. Does it happen at all times while driving, or does it only happen when you reach a certain speed, like on the highway? When it happens can tell our mechanics a lot about where the issue may be stemming from.
