Q: Car shaking

asked by on

Any time I go above 55 mph my car starts shaking

My car has 10433 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hello. This vehicle uses a center driveshaft support bearing (carrier bearing) on the rear driveshaft. This is a commonly known issue that I have seen go bad and cause vibrations around that speed. To confirm this, I recommend having a local expert, like one from YourMechanic inspect the shaking issue and proceed with the proper repair.
