    Snow driving

    I live in Canada where the snow can get quite deep. I have noticed that if I drive in deep snow, my 2012 Evoque tends to shake and shimmy for the next day or two especially at higher speeds. Has anyone one else had this issue? Is there a solution?

    You most likely have snow/ice caught in your wheel, throwing the wheel's balance off. I live in Minnesota and it happened to me several times, including just last week. Pulled the car over, pushed the snow out, and it was all better. It's really annoying when the car sits through a thaw/freeze cycle and you have ice lodged in there.

    I've had the same issue- seemed to resolve on its own after a few minutes on the highway.

    Yeah, originally from Vermont where the snow can be epic. You've got snow or ice in you wheel throwing the balance off.

    I'll go one step further. Over the past few weeks in Maine there have been a series of snow storms and the road crews have been laying down copious amount of sand/salt mixture. After the last stormy day, my Evoque started "hopping" and I immediately suspected snow in one of the wheels. None, but I did notice a lot of sand build up inside the wheels. I took it to the local self-serve car wash and used the pressure wand to spray the sand out of there. Bingo. The sand which was caked on was affecting the balance of the wheel(s). I've been in Maine most of my life and never experienced wheels becoming unbalanced on my other vehicles in similar weather conditions. That being said, the wheels on the Evogue do tend to hold more snow and junk than previous vehicles - lots of space inside the wheel.

    Same issue

    We are in NH. And have had the same issue with our 2012. We have 20" wheels and they do hold a lot of snow compared to our other vehicles.
