I brought the car to ANOTHER mechanic. This time, the mechanic drove it a lot longer than the previous one. 15-20 minutes on highway/in the city. He even drove it at 60mph and there was no wobbling/vibration. As we were exiting, it finally happened. A very subtle/slight wobbling in the steering wheel. He said it’s normal. It’s most likely the road.
I’m inclined to agree with him. I don’t drive a lot esp on highway. I only use the highway when I go to my local costco and that’s usually when I notice the “wobbling”. It has happened on other highways but not always. So, I think he’s right that it could be just the road.
He said it’s very very unlikely it’s the CV joints because if it is, the “wobbling” would be more of a vibration. It would be more pronounced and I would def know. He also said it would not happen randomly, it would happen constantly or at the very least more frequently.
He said the car is fine. run like new. he was not able to feel/tell anything wrong with the car. the car only needed more coolant, that’s it.
At this time, I think I’m just gonna stop. I’ve had steering wheel vibration before due to warped rotors. This one is def nothing like that. It’s very subtle and I’m gonna trust this 2nd mechanic that it’s probably just the road.
If the vibration gets worse or happens more frequently, I’ll revisit this.
