1997 Toyota Rav4 4 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic 175000 miles
There is a vibration that is felt very strongly on the wheel at all speeds, even when the car is standing. The vibration can be felt somewhat stronger when I push the brakes, but if I let go of the brakes, it is still there. It is not worse when I am speeding, I feel it mostly (or it annoys me more, not sure) when the car is standing. The problem is getting more and more consistent, not as intermittent as before.
I've read that it could be something related to the balancing of the tires or something called " feathering". FYI: I had this same problem about 5 months ago and they rotated the tires and it was fixed. Could it be that I'm having the same problem again? Why after only 5 months?
