Q: Car shakes and squeaks

asked by on

The car is shaking when I drive over 60 MPH. And I hear squeaking on front driver's side.

Improperly balanced tires usually start to vibrate above 50 miles per hour. This may be fixed simply by having the tires balanced. Have an experienced technician, such as one from YourMechanic, also check the condition of the tires and integrity of the front and rear suspension components.
