Hey all,

I have a 2006 Cobalt SS that developed a weird problem a few days ago. When driving the car at highway speeds (roughly 65-75mph), the steering wheel vibrates. I noticed that it only happens when you let off of the gas pedal (i.e. if im accelerating within that range or have my foot on the gas pedal it does not vibrate at all). The best way to describe the vibration is that it feels as if its coming from within the steering wheel, i am guessing that it is transmitting vibrations from something in the front end, possibly the cv joints?

Any help is much appreciated,

-Michael

You possibly have a bad tie-rod if you only feel it while coasting. This is because under acceleration your front wheels toe-in and everything is held tight, when you brake your front wheels toe-out and everything is held tight. While coasting if a tie -rod has play wheels wiggle side to side and you will feel this at the steering.
