Verified

A vibration felt at 55 mph may not be a tire problem. Mazda has revised motor mounts available which may help remedy this problem.

    heavy vibration begins over 60 and gets worse as speed increases - bought new tires, didn't help, double checked balance and alignment at two shops - didn't help - new front rotors and pads - didn't help. Next step is checking mounts -

    Driving at around 60 MPH I feel that the body (not the steering wheel) vibrates. Al 4 tires repalced and balanced including dynamic (on the car) blancing and still the problem not fixed.

    We picked up a shimmy/vibration at 70 mph, and it was intermittent, sometimes to the point of slowing down to 20 mph to get it to stop. We thought it might be the roads, but we got all 4 tires replaced and the alignment done and no change. It's really bad in a side wind (this could be wind getting under the hood and yanking it around), but we're tired of spending money on it. Our tires also had severe wear on the outsides.

    I started feeling vibration when I got up to 55. My tires are not even a year old and I get them rotated every 5,000 miles. I noticed vibration about a week after they rotated them so I brought my car back to the tire shop a couple weeks later to check the tires out. They said that the tires were fine and not out of balance or anything. I had the tire guy drive my car and he felt the vibration but couldnt explain it. Now it is even worse and started to vibrate between 65 and 70. I got on the freeway and it is on a sharp corner the whole front end started shaking so hard I thought my motor was going to fall out. Someone told me that it sounded like a lose motor mount. The vibration is in the whole body of the car....almost bouncy and sometimes the steering wheel just vibrates. Still not fixed

    shaking at 55mph....5 different mechanics swore it was my tires
    did the front and rear shocks/struts
    front axle
    balanced tires 5x and aligned the car
    HOPING it is the motor mounts!

    Rumbling coming into steering column starting at about 60mph. Still searching for the cause.

  • vibration at 55 mph,had tires ballanced and re-ballanced. Dealer cannot say for sure engine mounts will solve the problem. Said, best to live with the problem.
