Why Is My Car Shaking?

Why Is My Car Shaking? 

Experiencing a shake in your car can be a sign of underlying issues that need immediate attention. At Wayside Garage in Seaside, CA, we often encounter vehicles with this problem and are well-equipped to diagnose and resolve it. Let’s explore one of the common reasons your car might be shaking and how we can help ensure your vehicle remains safe and reliable.

Tire Wear and Damage:  
One of the primary causes of car shaking is tire issues. Tires are your vehicle's only contact with the road, and their condition is critical to your driving experience. For example, uneven wear or internal damage in a tire can lead to significant vibrations. We recently examined a tire that was not only worn down to the wear indicator but was also beginning to split internally — a clear sign that it was time for a replacement.

The Importance of Proper Tire Maintenance: 
Ensuring your tires are in good condition and correctly aligned is essential. Tires should be regularly inspected for wear and tear, and maintained to prevent uneven wear. At Wayside Garage, we provide comprehensive tire services, including balancing and alignment, to help eliminate vibrations and extend the life of your tires.
