2007 Honda Civic Q&A
2007 Honda Civic Question: The car has a shimmy, worst at 57 mph, tire rotation doesn't fix it, what to do?
It's done this since new, 4 tries with the dealer did nothing. They say "The tire pressure was off", "It's supposed to do that", "I didn't notice a problem", etc, etc. I think a big clue is that I can feel it at parking lot speed. If I release the wheel when it's turned fully one way, it returns to center in jerks, not smoothly. I think it's a drivetrain joint of some kind. Help! - pfran
If your going slow (10-20MPH) and the steering wheel wobbles side-to-side on it's own AND you might have a slight up-and -down feeling in the seat,it's most likely a bad tire. go to an independent shop ask to put on lift and visually observe all 4 tires for high and low , or excessive side-to-side movement .Also how many miles on tires and make sure the rims aren't bent.PLEASE expect to pay a small fee for lift/diagnostic time & maybe let them know in advance you don't expect free ...just a legitimate diagnosis if possible. Reply with the cars VIN # and I can check for any bulletins or warranty extensions involving those symptoms. - ziptie12
