Q: Vibration/Wobble When Accelerating From Low Speeds

asked by on

I have a 2014 Toyota Corolla LE ECO with 11,000 miles. I am noticing a slight vibration/wobble under normal acceleration from low speeds through the steering wheel and gas pedal. It is only present for a second or two. I am leaning towards an alignment or tire balance issue. Any suggestions on what the issue could be is greatly appreciated.

My car has 11000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi there. I would definitely start with having the wheels and tires checked for balance and wobble. If they are fine, it is usually caused by a bad engine mount or CV axle. Both of these are common on this car and will cause this. If you plan on having this repaired, consider YourMechanic, as a certified mechanic can come to your home or office to diagnose your car’s vibration issue.
