Apparently, no solution. I took it to Honda, and after 4 hours of "working on it" aka, sitting in the lot, they said there is no problem, and told me to take my car home.I haven't signed on here in a long time and I'm too lazy to search the boards...I was wondering if Honda has found out the cause of the high speed wheel shimmy and what the solution is.
Nope. This is not the shaking of the steering wheel/ride that many here are experiencing. What is surprising to me is that Honda has yet to diagnose and fix this widespread problem.Not sure if this is along the same lines.....but I noticed that on the highway I had to adjust my steering wheel ever so slightly on a consistant basis.
I upgraded to the TSX 17mm sway bar and ITS GONE!!!!:banana:
Again, not sure if this is the problem you are experiencing, but for $70 you may want to look into the mod anyway
No. 2010Couper was speaking of something else. I was referring to his description. So yes, it's the shaking of the wheel/car that many have.So if it's not the shaking of the steering wheel or ride .. what shimmy do you speak of? I mean what else would be "shimmy'n"?
And FYI, the shaking persisted after switching to different tires. Trust me, there's a thread buried on this site somewhere where many have this problem despite trying everything possible to solve it.Keep going back to your dealership or to another dealer. It'll bound to happen in one of the rides. Or get your tires rebalanced / aligned, check tire pressure, tighten your lugs. It can be many things that you might look because you may think it's too "obvious".
I test drove a new 2010 with 8 miles on it and noticed this shimmy that did go away if you drove above 70-75 mph or below 50 mph if I remember correctly. The salesman said it's a tire out of balance and can be fixed. Then I went to another dealer and drove the car I have with zero shimmy on it, glad I listen to my gut feeling that a new car shouldn't come with a problem already!No it's not the tires. It's not anything that anyone can figure out so far. So let's not state the obvious.
