i would geuss wheel out of balance or a bulge on the tire. second guess would be a cv axle. had a car that did this same thing the funny thing was is the cv didn't make any noise when turning but, above 50 it shook like crazy.

Could be as simple as the tire balance or a bad tire. Hopefully that is all.

However, that series of cars had, afaik, some front end issues with premature wear and or failure of some components.

This was my Eagle Vision from the same car family, albeit a bit older. Lucky I was going slow in town after just turning a corner. You wouldn't want this to happen out on the highway/freeway.

I'd get it looked at right away. What is your safety and peace of mind worth?

My 83 Buick Park Ave, which always rode great, like a Caddy or Lincoln started shaking really bad in the front end. The front right tire had a belt broke in it. Put new tires on it and rides great again.

Ya if it happens at a specific speed get the tires checked. I have had 4 tires do that to me now.

Like Whoareu99 said, with those cars it never hurts to give the front end a once over too. Its cheaper than a accident.

If you bring the car in to a shop, tell them it viberates, have them check out the tires and front end parts, then balance the tires. I am sure they wont charge any extra to check it over for you.

I have had broken belts in a tire and it did the same thing. I would also check to see how much sand/gravel is in the back side of the rim. I have had this happen alot but I grew up on a gravel road but even the sand they put down this time of year can get behind there.

    • Here are a couple of pics of ducks nesting in tree cavities. We have a goldeneye and a hooded merganser. 
    • Spring is exploding right into summer across Wisconsin. You would never know that just three weeks ago the Northwoods was covered with ice and snow. Memorial Day weekend kicks of the unofficial start to summer and many of the reservable campsite at state parks and forests are booked. The best remaining camping opportunities can be found in the non-reservable campsites in northern state forests. The lower Wisconsin River continues to run high, but there were signs of sandbars beginning to emerge in some areas as water slowly drops.Universe in the Park astonomy program begins this weekend with program at Blue Mound and Kohler-Andrae state parks.Photo credit: UW-Madison Dept. of AstronomyFields and forests have greened up, and regular rains have kept fire danger low to moderate across most of the state with just a few areas still in high fire danger. Through the spring fire season 639 wildfires burned 1,800 acres; 53 structures were destroyed and another 441 were threatened, but saved.Wisconsin's northern zone musky season opens this Saturday and spring fish assessments are showing they won't be disappointed with what they find, with many fish over 40 inches netted and released. .
    • P. S. Seasoning has a Memorial Say sale of 20% off everything plus free shipping on orders over $30.
    • Definitely blacks.  I haven't hit my blacks spot yet but matbe this weekend. 
    • Had a decent breeze last night so wasn't too bad.  
    • I would be out a morning or two if I still had the tag.   Afternoons must be a sauna in a blind.   We hunted in shorts and t-shirts in early May and were still hot when afternoon temps reached around 82 - 85 degrees.
    • Remember to get those birds entered!  I know there are more out there.
    • Well wondering if anyone is going to be out in the heat for the last turkey season.  I was out last night and just needed a nice strutter to get a bit closer.   I moved the blind to his entry/exit point.   He didn't want to follow the hen when she walked by my blind twice.   He stayed on the high ground in the field. Hoping for better results.
    • Game 6 of Caps and Lightning was fun to watch, even though the lightning got shut out.  Ove was a beast, really fun to watch him play like that.   Good for the Caps, I think they can nuetralize the speed of Vegas, they have some hard hitters on the team.  Hopefully Ove can kiss the cup.
    • Vegas vs Caps, we all saw that coming.
