Steering wheel vibrates at 100km/62 mph


Recommended Posts

Hi to all, I bought a secondhand 1.6 EcoBoost 2011 S-Max. The car already went 3 times back to the garage because of a vibrating steering wheel. Vibrating is not vibrating heavlily, but it's annoying. The garage already have done:

  1. Align the car
  2. Balancing the tyres
  3. Replace the tyres (strange enough they put smaller tyres on  it; 215/50/17 instead of 225/50/17)

But the car still vibrates. Anyone ever encounter this problem? The steering ball joint was replaced last year, could a faulty replacement creates vibration?

When you apply light pressure to the brake pedal do you feel any slight vibration or a slight judder of the brakes ?

One or both of the front discs maybe very slightly warped causing vibration at speed. Ask the garage to check the discs for 'run-out' using a dti
