2012 Honda CRV Shakes When Accelerating
There could be several possible causes as to why your 2012 Honda CRV is shaking when accelerating. A few things that you would want to check include:
- Tires: Unevenly worn or out-of-balance tires can cause shaking, especially at higher speeds. Check your tires for signs of wear, and make sure they are properly inflated.
- Engine: A misfiring engine can cause shaking or vibrating, especially under acceleration. You may also notice a loss of power or a rough idle.
- Driveshaft: A damaged or worn driveshaft can cause shaking or vibration under acceleration. You may notice a clunking or grinding noise as well.
- Suspension: Worn or damaged suspension components, such as shocks or struts, can cause shaking or vibration while driving.
- Transmission: A slipping or damaged transmission can cause shaking or jerking during acceleration. You may also notice a burning smell or hear unusual noises.
With this kind of issue, it’s best to have your vehicle inspected by a mechanic to identify the root cause. Letting this problem go unchecked would cause more damage to your car and also put your safety at risk.
