Vibration at 70mph +

Post by Kym909 » Fri May 20, 2016 6:01 pm

Evening all,

I'm new here and I'm looking for some advice. My
Qashqai is vibrating when I go to 70mph and beyond. I can feel it in the steering wheel and in my seat. It comes and goes as I'm driving along. I have new front tyres, I got them balanced last week, I've recently had the ball joint changed as well as new front brakes pads and discs. It went for a service and I was told there's no concerns.

On last years MOT they flagged up that the bushes were worn, I didn't get them
Replaced. On this years MOT (at the same garage) I was expecting them to tell me that the bushes were quite worn and needed changing. But get this they never mentioned them at all. So I queried them about this for them to try and cover their backs and say every MOT Examiner does it different and has different criteria. Which doesn't make sense because they are either worn or not, simple as that it would seem either last years MOT guy is lying or this years one. Although I did get them to then check the bushes with me there and then and they said they weren't worn. The day before the MOT & service I took it to my local garage and mentioned the problem and they never mentioned the bushes or bearings or anything else for that matter. Weather they checked it properly I don't know. I am now starting to wonder weather they actually changed the balljoint after this bushes business. Anyhow, any ideas what it could be? Would be great full for advice.

Any anomalies going over pot holes or speed bumps at all?
Anythingloose under the car...exhaust, heat shields etc or front bumper slightly loose, or even mud flaps? Process of elimination.

Hi Kym909,

Sorry to hear this hasn't been resolved for you. Have you tried contacting your local dealer about this? Alternatively you can contact our customer care team on 0330 123 1231. Do let us know how you get on. Thanks, ^BA

Assuming yours is a J10 model,(pre 2014) you'd best post on the J10 thread on the forum.
