Nissan Driving

As you drive your vehicle, it may start to shake and vibrate, which can be startling and put your safety at risk. There are a few common issues that may cause the problem to develop over time. Getting the vehicle inspected and diagnosed by a mechanic is necessary to ensure you know what parts need to be repaired. If your car continues to shake, our service team can determine the cause of the issue and perform the necessary repairs to ensure your safety.

Worn Brakes

The brakes are prone to wearing down the more you drive your vehicle and can have difficulty stopping the car at the end of their lifespan. You may notice that the front brakes tend to wear down faster because they're used more than the rear brakes to stop the car. Brake pads usually last an average of 50,000 miles, but it mainly depends on your driving habits. Have a technician check the brakes out to protect your safety and ensure you can stop the vehicle.

Engine Problems

Look under the hood for some common issues that may be triggering the shaking or vibrating on your car. Worn spark plugs are known to cause the problem, making it necessary to check the connections and the quality of the parts. Spark plugs have an average lifespan of 80,000 to 100,000 miles. The lifespan depends on your car manual, making it necessary to read the owner's manual.

The air filter is another component under the hood that can cause issues if you don't replace it soon. It lasts an average of three years but can prevent oxygen from reaching the engine if it gets clogged with dirt and grime.

Damaged Axles

You'll also need to inspect the axles for any damage. The parts may be dented or bent if they have contact with something on the road or if you get into an accident. The axles can prevent the wheels from moving straight and cause your steering wheel to feel wobbly and difficult to control.


A few main issues may be present with the tires that can cause your car to shake. There may be air leaking out of one of the tires, or the tires may not be adequately balanced or aligned. Check the air pressure PSI to determine if it needs more air. A technician can also check for any leaks that may be present. Too much wear may also be present on the tread. You should rotate your tires each time you get an oil change to ensure the tread is even.
