#8 - steering problem of the 2010 Toyota Fj cruiser the vehicle is a 2010 Toyota Fj cruiser. This vehicle can not maintain safe highway speeds of 55 to 60 mph due to severe wheel shimmy. I have had these wheels force balance about a dozen times, still having the same issue. Why won't Toyota look into this problem. I have tried new tires and still the same problem, so I put back the original tires and replace the rims, still the same problem..this is costing consumers a lot of money and time. Now I am replacing the rotors to see if that helps. I have done research on Toyota forums and the 2010 and new Toyota Fj cruisers are having a problem, and Toyota will not do anything on this safety issue. My concern I losing control at highway speeds.
