The car doesn't shake in the steering wheel. Only when my foot is on the gas at 60+ Mph once I let off it stops.

    I had same issue. Car shook from 60-75mph. Took foot off pedal it was fine. I changed a tire that had barely any thread left and shaking stopped. Good luck. U probably have a tire that is old. Don't know how that made the car shake never saw it before but that's what fixed mine. Was pure luck I changed tire too.

    Thank you. I'll try that. Tires are probably a year old. Nothing but front end problems with this car.

    Could be alignment, or tires out of balance... check your tires along the bead and rim. Are there counter balances missing? Can typically tell by a slight indentation or discoloration where a balance weight had been placed along the rim... Were they balanced when mounted?
