I have some low speed vibration in my car. I feel it more in my butt than feet/hands. It happens while braking or driving. It disappears at higher speeds +25 mph. Because it doesn't affect the steering wheel, I guess its not an alignment issue. Since it goes away at high speed I guess its not a balance issue. Tire shop guy said that it could either be a bad shock or that one of the belts in a rear tire is starting to go. At high speed the wheel expands and stretches out the belts so the vibration goes away. He felt the rear tires and didn't notice anything out of ordinary. He said it might be only slight belt damage. Does this sound right?
- Its gone on ~1000 miles. I've probably hit a million potholes. I live in Pittsburgh =(
- I can't really locate the vibration's origin position in/around the vehicle (back/front, driver/passenger). I'll try
- Its a 2007 VW Jetta 2.5L, with 50k miles.
- Its not a function of engine speed
- It is more noticeable at high speed than I initially thought.
So its probably a balance issue. I'll report back after a visit to the tire shop.
