Why does my car shake when I decelerate?

Why does my car shake when I decelerate?

Most of the time, a vehicle shakes because of three specific items; problems with the tires or wheels, loose or broken suspension components, wheel bearings that are worn out. That causes more load to those suspension components and can cause the shaking you’re describing at the speeds you’re indicating.

What causes coasting vibrations?

Actually, most u-joints won’t cause much of a vibration if you’re just coasting or cruising at a steady speed, because there’s no load on them. When accelerating and decelerating, however, there’s enough load on the driveshaft and joints to cause vibrations that will increase and decrease with vehicle speed.

How many miles does a 2003 Volkswagen Passat have?

I brought my passat in 2003 new. We are know in 2010 and I have not had any problems that I am surprised about. I drive my car on a daily basis. I currently have 97,500 miles on my car, and plan on changing the timing belt at 105,000 to drive the car another 100,000 miles.

Are there any Volkswagen Passat that don’t have 5 speed tip?

Versions of these cars were released that did not have it, however. These versions were usually the sported up versions (the Audi S6 Avant with the 5 speed tip didn’t have it, yet the Audi A6 4.2 with the 5 speed tip did.) In later years (2002 and beyond or 2003 and beyond) the transmissions were all pretty much reprogrammed with an “S” mode.

Why does my Volkswagen Passat hesitate when I hit the accelerator?

Has anybody else noticed that when coming to a stop and just before stopping completely, you decide to hit the accelerator, there is a very annoying transmission shifting delay. I asked the VW dealer about it and he told me they were aware of it and that it seems to be an issue with the AT software.

Is there turbo lag in a Volkswagen Passat?

Turbos tend to have something called Turbo Lag. When you push the gas pedal down, there is a slight delay. I have a 2004 Passat 1.8t and there is turbo lag in my car, but its not too bad. From what I hear, the 2.0t is better in this respect.
