#104 of 138 Rumble bump feeling
Apr 11, 2011 (11:07 am)
I have 2003 Vue V6 (not AWD) and I have had the same Vibration since I got it... it had 20" rims on it and everyone told me that the tires were to big.. so I put 17" tires & rims on it and no better.. then I was told to inner tie rods were the problem, so i replaced them.. then the said the rear trans mount was bad, so i replaced it.. I still have the rumble bump feeling at 60 to 70 mph.. I have had the tired re-balanced and still the problem is there.. I am soooo stressed over this, it is killing me.. what can the problem be??? every machanic is telling me different things and that would be ok, if it was fixing it.. NO noise from anywhere, just a bad vibration/rumbling from the front end that I can feel in the gas peddle and the steering wheel.. PLEASE HELP...

Here's a suggestion: Intermediate steering shaft - some have so much play in them that they will cause a vibration that you can feel at 60-70 mph. replace it and I bet you will get rid of your problem. You've already replaced all of the obvious things it sounds like.

#109 of 138 Vibration at highway speeds
May 24, 2011 (8:26 am)
I have a 07 Vue Redline, it shakes on the highway and it's weird because some days are better than others, seems like when the weather dries out it's good but if there is moisture in the air it shakes pretty bad. I have done all the brakes, rotors and checked the bearings to the best of my knowledge and didn't notice any play in the wheel, and there are sounds of anything worn out. Any suggestions?

I apologize for your frustrations. My best suggestion is to have the vehicle diagnoised by a GM dealer. Please keep me updated on your progress with your concerns.

i have a saturn vue 05 60k miles. I have several issues. One when you turn the wheel there is a clicking noise... two, there is a vibration noise in the front but not all the time. sometimes when accelerating it is stuck like the wheels arent catching...the tires were new and wore out around the edges in the front in less than a year. it sounds like the front end is going to fall apart. mechanics have had differing opinions. i did not go to gm yet as i can not afford dealer labor costs. any clue what may be wrong? also on start up the car continues to turn over but will not start right away unless gas tank is full all the way. Yikes this car has quickly gone south all at once!

Sounds like a few things. I would have the cv joints looked at bushings in front end and have the motor mounts inspected. I over looked my mounts because I swore it was my suspension area turned out all the vibration was from broken mounts n tires out off balance. The rattle from the tires like metal hitting metal on bumps is the caliper pins the must be lubed up really good to create like a cushion. The tire wear sounds like bad bushings or ball joints or even an alignment problem.
