6/9/15 had tires replaced & aligned merchant's tire. 1 day later tire wobbling took it back, they claimed they couldn't assist. Took it to a local shop & balance it 3 times in 2 weeks. Noticed while driving, commuters stay about a half a mile away from me & flash lights. Took it to the dealership marlow hts, they claim they couldn't find anything wrong. Tire still wobbling took it to wal mart auto, while trying to check, they broke my wheel lock! looking for a trustworthy place to fix my vehicle. No one seems to want to work these days. A friend just sent this site & I learned of this death wobble thing in Jeep Wrangler. I have been dealing with this for 7 months now and I'm livid!

The contact owns a 2011 Jeep Wrangler. The contact stated while driving 55 mph, the front driver and passenger side wheels began to shake on five occasions. The vehicle was taken to the dealer for diagnostic testing but they were unable to duplicate the problem. The vehicle was not repaired. The failure continued to occur and the manufacturer was notified. The VIN was not available. The approximate failure mileage was 10,000.

While traveling on a highway or a high speed service road, my Jeep will begin to shake tremendously. I have researched and found this is known as the "death wobble." I am a younger driver and when the first incident happened, I began to freak. Although not very many accidents actually occur I am still scared that it will happen again. Sometimes I can feel it coming on but nothing ever happens. This has happened 3 times in a week and a half, once at 67mph, once at 60mph, and once at 55mph. This is a very scary event and I hope to get it fixed soon. I wish that you would take the time to look over this incident and fix it. Once again being a young driver this is very scary. I have had my Jeep for a year and 2 months and this is the first time it has happened.

While traveling on the highway at approximately 55-60 mph, my 2011 4-door Jeep Wrangler hit a small bump. The Jeep's front-end/steering wheel began to shake uncontrollably. When trying to reduce the speed by braking, the violent shaking only became worse. I was unable to keep the vehicle in the lane which I was driving because of the out-of-control shaking. Had there been other vehicles in the adjacent lanes, there most definitely would have been an accident, with possible injuries, given the rate of speed that I was traveling. I had to reduce the speed of the vehicle simply by not applying the gas or brake, causing cars behind me to have to brake, which in turn could have resulted in additional accidents/injuries. This uncontrollable shaking has occurred in this vehicle approximately 5 times. I have since learned that this is the infamous "death wobble." Since this is a known occurrence, especially in Jeep, my concern is why this is not being addressed and being required to be fixed.
