How much does your engine shake the steering wheel on idle ?
I have a 2011 SE I4 6-speed automatic with 1000 miles. The engine has started to make some vibration on the steering wheel and even in the drive seat. This is not really worse but somewhat unpleasant. I used to drive Chevy Malibu cars for the last 8 years and did not notice any vibration from the engine through the steering wheel or drive seat.
The vibration started few weeks after I bought the car. It began when I did stop at the red light with foot on brake in drive. Now it does all the time even in neutral...
Does anyone of you guys have experienced this?
Impossible to ascertain a vibration over the Internet and others experience will be colored by what they consider to be normal or not.
My best advice? Since you have a new car which is likely still covered under the 3 year/3600 mile Bumper to Bumper and/or 5 year/60,000 mile Powertrain Warranties, the best course of action would be to bring your car in for Warranty service and demonstrate exactly what your concerns are to the Service Department staff. Explain to them, in as much detail and possible, exactly how and when this vibration occurs. And politely insist they send a Tech on a test drive with you so you can demonstrate. Or in this case, insist someone sit in the car with you in the shop while you demonstrate, since it happens while stopped and idling.
Let us know how you make out and good luck.
