Hey guys, 

 

First post here. Want to add to this thread since it just happened to me this morning. 

 

I have a 2013 MKZ 3.7 AWD with 68K miles. 

 

Started the first 10 minutes of a 5 hour road trip with the 'shimmy' occurring around 50-60mph down the highway. It almost feels like the back end of the car is sliding around and all 3 other passengers felt the same thing in the car. It got to the point of us pulling off on the first exit and making sure all the tires were intact and visually inspecting the underside to see if there was anything hanging. It happened again for the next 10-20 miles doing 60mph on a 75mph road. It finally went away about 20-30 minutes later and it never came back after driving the remainder of the trip. 

 

I purchased the car used about 4 months ago and this never occurred up until this morning. I did recently have a tire rotation within the past few weeks. 

 

It just seems odd having this shimmy occur early and never coming back again. I worry about taking it in and having the dealership not find anything. I see the rear driveshaft is something to be looked at per this thread. 

 

Just thought I would add my experience and I will post further updates if anything else comes up.

I would check you air pressure in the tires when the tires are cold., it almost sound like it was low but once the tires heated up from use the pressure rose and smoothed out the ride.

Another possibility (considering where you are located) would be a chunk of snow or ice temporarily affixed to a tire causing an unbalance and shimmy. It finally freed itself.
