    Default vitz 2005 wobbling problem

    hi guys i have a 2005 vitz and for a few days i have been noticing that the car wobbles at a slow speed and when i get to 50-60 kph the car doesnt wobble but the steering keeps on wobbling. can anybody tell whether its the balancing alignment problem or any other thanks in advance .

    i think you need a wheel-balancing/alignment done.

    it can wobble at any speed mate.

    Get the alignment and balancing done.

    Also possible that a tyre weight fell down, causing imbalance and wobble at any speed.

    well a few days a ago i had a little accident i hit a car in front of me. the wobbling problem started after that accident it was not major but still i will get it checked if that caused something. may be it resulted in falling of a tyre's weight .

    Get Alignment/Tire Rotation done as soon as possible, if that's not a problem then get your MAF Sensor and Throttle Body Cleaned and replace your Air Filter with a new one.

    Wobbling on slow speed or idle, means their is probably dirty/un-wanted particles in your throttle body or MAF sensor which are choking the air that is trying to enter the engine.

    Your camber off-set wasn't in it's proper angle, the angle on which the tire was sitting caused the wobbling, good to hear you got it checked.

    @poster
    i have used 2006 vitz for three years .If u r talking about shake which car usually makes when its stationary its due to its three cylinder engin and its normal so nothing to worry about . Rest if u know about the my mentioned problem and you are facing some different wobble then i ll suggest you to get your car checked from toyota dealer mostly prefered toyota walton motors as they were the ones who use to maintain my vitz and trust me i never had a single glinch of problem in three years and the shaking problem of my car was also solved to a lot of extent as compared to other cars of its model . I ll suggest you to get your checked from Basit available at Toyota Walton motors

    The wobling steering can be due a "uneven shaped tire"

    or some serius issue with the suspension of the car.
    Get over the fact that Xli lacks power windows, Its an Xli because it lacks thoose features or else it would be a Gli or an Altis if had all the goodies.
