Abstract. Contemporary research in the automotive vibration control area is well-developed. Ongoing studies are focusing on the quantification and identification of vibration sources. Vibration influence is a considerable effective factor in almost all industrial fields as well as in car driving as it is a concern related to ride comfort. Automotive industries are developing constantly and one of the important problems in this field is suspension and related vibration issues. Drivers and passengers in vehicles are directly affected by vibrations. In regard to this problem vibration control is improving continuously in automotive industry worldwide including Turkey. Vibration occurs in two ways: structural vibrations and engine vibrations in cars. Vibration levels of a passenger car have been measured and simulated in this study by means of experimental method and developed program respectively

Keywords: vibrations, automobile, suspension, driving, comfort, analysis.
