    that could be a number of things... to start with... has it had a major front end accident before? and how long has it been doing it for?

    I have had the same problem before and a wheel alignment fixed it. I specifically remember it only happened at higher speeds (above around 80km/h) Obviously it could be a number of other things though e.g. suspension.

    wheel alignment would have nothing to do with a viabration, the wheel alignment stops the car from pulling to one side and wearing out tyres. a wheel BALANCE on the other hand fixes viabration in the steering wheel!!

    Sounds like a wheel balance problem to me.

    Start with the wheel balance as its cheap. After that it could be lots of things auto, tail shaft, etc, etc.

    i used to be a tyre fitter i can tell u that if u get ur tyres balanced and a wheel alignment it will fix it and if it doesent then its sumfin with ur suspension but thats only very rare.

    rooted rim or unbalanced tyre, mine felt like the whole car was bouncing along at about 110 and some new tyres and rims on the front made it all go away.
