The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has already logged six consumer complaints regarding this problem on the Toyota 4Runner in the last several months.

Most of the complaints mention the owner brought the vehicle to the dealership for a repair which did not correct the issue. Here’s a sample:

Steering wheel shakes around 58-64 mph. Brought 4Runner in twice already with tires being road-forced balanced but nothing seems to work. I will be bringing it in again for the third time. This has happened with less than 100 miles, now with 2,700 mi.

I purchased a 2021 sr5 premium and on the 2nd day I noticed that after driving at 60-63 the car shakes and pulls to the right, I’ve took it back to the dealership, and the problem still there. They said that is normal but after reading on forums alot of people are experiencing the same problem. Will take it back to have check out again.

*Steering shudder occurs when driving 55-70mph. *The shudder makes it feel as you have no control over vehicle, especially in wet/snow driving conditions. *dealer technicians have inspected multiple times with no fix. *issue began with in first 500 miles (brand new purchase).

Between 58-65mpg steering wheel shakes. Vehicle has been back to dealer for rebalancing the tires twice and a front end alignment. The issue persists.

I bought a 2021 4runner late April of 2021. I reported and scheduled an appointment for a balance check. This didn’t seem to fix the problem. While they were in the process of balancing the tech broke 2 center caps. I will be setting up an appointment to have the dealership recheck and alignment. I’ve read reports where this has been a problem before with a lot of 4 runners. I’m disappointed with the customer service as well there. Please help me resolve this problem. I really love the vehicle but at 60-65mph the steering wheel shakes and the 4runner wants to pull to the right.

    Same problem, 2021 4Runner SR5 Premium shaking at highway speeds for almost 9 months. No one could fix it including Toyota service. Also have a 2022 4Runner Off Road Premium with KDSS. The first 5000 miles it tracked straight as an arrow. After the first service appointment, it now wanders to the right and shakes at highway speeds. Not a chance in hell I’m dealing with this again. Currently in the process of trade-in for a sedan.

    Same… I’m so over this. Mine started after the first maintenance service. Was told that the road force balance would fix it, but it didn’t. Then was told because the did the road force balance they changed the tire pressure which took the tire out of warranty. I have had a new tire, many alignments, tire balances, been to two different dealerships. Been told some of the most off the wall excuses. I’m so sick of this.
