Our Orlando Toyota service team explains why your steering wheel is shaking

Have you ever been behind the wheel when all of a sudden your steering wheel starts shaking so hard that it makes you feel like you're on a roller coaster ride? According to our Orlando auto service team, there are a couple reasons why this could be happening and we want to break them down to you and explain why. If you notice these things happening to your car, come to our Orlando Toyota service center and get it checked in no time. 

  • Out of balance tires - If when driving, you notice that the steering wheel begins to vibrate once you speed up past 50 mph, the tires may be your problem.  This means that your tires are out of balance and causes you steering to go stir crazy. However, a quick visit to our Orlando auto service center can get your wheels back in place and stop the vibrating. 
  • Loose brake rotors - If you notice your steering wheel shaking when you step on the brake, the problem is probably in the brake system. One of the parts in the brake system that can cause the vibrating is the brake rotors; if they're not tightened properly or loose, they can cause the wheel to shake. You may even feel the vibrating through the brake pedal. 
  • Worn out brake pads - Another part of the brake system that can cause the vibrating is worn out brake pads. The pads are what apply pressure to wheel when you need to stop. If worn out, it can make the steering wheel shake due to the scrapping metal. However, a worn out brake pad can be dangerous, so we recommend getting it replaced right away! Visit our auto service center in Orlando to get checked and replaced.
