The car vibrates between the speed of 50 to 60 MPH

The car runs smooth between 0-50 mph. When it reaches 50mph, it starts to vibrate. But when it crosses 60mph, it becomes smooth again.. I'm not sure what the problem is??

you should have the run out of your rims checked. see if they are bent at all. Does it happen when you are braking?

I too have vibration from 60-70 and had my wheels balanced twice. The place that did it said that I had a slightly bent rear wheel so I replaced it and had them balance them again. It did not help. I have read lots of posts on the internet and the number one response seems to be wheel balance. Instead of balancing them again I borrowed the wheels off my dad's 06 hybrid and had the same exact problem. I have a horrible feeling that it is some type of engine related problem.

My shaking occurs when I jump on the freeway and then due to traffic conditions, cruise at a low rpm at about 60 and then accelerate slowly.The vibration lets up after 70. I can recreate the issue on all freeways and in turns. Anyone else having similar issues? I have a 4 cylinder 05 lx...

check the tires for bumps and the rims as well, if they seem to be ok, you will need balance and/or alignment

I'm not trying to be rude but i just told you that I swapped all of my wheels for a set off of my dad's car and still have the same problem so I don't know how checking the tires for bumps and the rims as well could be of any help

I also stated that I have had the wheels balanced twice.... I guess you are trying to be helpful so I appreciate that... maybe you were just responding to the other guy and not me.... I hope someone might be able to shed some light on this situation..

I had a problem like this with my 2004 i4 with 67000 miles. It would shake while accelerating. After about 60 I wouldn't feel it as much. Brought it to the Honda dealer where I bought it used. They told me I needed a new transmission because the bearings in the transmission were poorly made...
