well i depends on what you drive for example if you drive a Pilot you will have better construction and better frame rigidity because its an SUV well if you drive an civic you will shake around because it a regular sedan. the car shakes because of lose parts or maybe you just feel weird in high speed things

I can think of 4 common reasons for it 1= tires are flat spotted 2 tires are out of balance 3 is for rear wheel drive vehicles =the drive shaft is out of balance 4=a universal is about to come apart

Check your tire pressure.

Rotate your tires and have a shop balance them, unbalanced tires will cause harsh vibrations and excessive wear on the treads at higher speeds.

It could also be something in the steering system like a tie-rod end going bad or even something in the suspension. Bad engine mounts will cause it as well.

If it's automatic, another possibility is a dragging Torque Converter Clutch, when you are cruising (any speed) and not accelerating the TCC will engage to help you get better MPG, but once you accelerate the TCC must disengage and if it doesn't fully disengage but instead drags it will cause a harsh vibration. Can also cause stalling at idle and/or shaking when coming to a stop.

Take it to a shop and have them diagnose it.

Check your wheel balancing and wheel alignment first. Check also your tire condition and transmission alignment. Hope this help!

Default Re: car shakes at high speeds?

So just on acceleration or at high speeds?

If its just on acceleration your transmission/torque converter is rough. At high speeds its tire balance or alignment. If when braking its warped rotors.
