#1 of 202 2005 JGC limited hemi vibration at highways speeds
Apr 25, 2006 (7:43 am)
If anyone has this same problem please let me know. I bought my jeep in august and immediately noticed a vibration problem. I brought it to NTB and had them check the balance of the tires. They claimed they were out of balance but when i driove off i had the same vibration. When i brought it to the dealership they said the drive shaft was to blame and they replaced the drive shaft. drove home and noticed the same problem once again. Brought it back to the dealer....to make a long story short i have had my jeep in and out of the shop for months and still no solution. This only happens on the highway traveling 70-80mph. at 60 it fine at 100 it fine. What should i do and who should i speak to? Presently i am waiting for a "special tool" to come in to measure vibration within the vehicle and see if it is within reason. my passenger seat will move at least 1" from the vibration. I am very tired of this problem. please help.

no not yet i have been trying to get my jeep in the dealership for the last week but haven't been able to get a loaner car yet. I would have it checked out at your local dealership, but let me know what they find out.

I am taking it in today. The vibration doesn't sound as bad as yours -- my seat doesn't move -- but it is annoying and makes the feel of driving the car very unpleasant. Everytime you step on the gas, if rumbles and vibrates.

I have it too on my Commander with the HEMI. At around 70 it kicks in. Annoying as hell. Too bad because besides that the Jeep's a great drive.

Well i am bring it back to the dealer...again on this coming wednesday. I will let you know what i find out. You too have the chrome plated rims right? I have heard a rumor that the rims are what is defective. Jeep will not admit it just yet but the former service manager said that when the regular aluminum rims were installed the vibrations went away. Let me know at what speeds the vibrations is felt. Mine is very strong around 75mph but at 85mph the ride is completely smooth and enjoyable. Love the Jeep Hate the Vibrations.

The low pitched rumbling and vibrations startsat 70 mph, worst at 75mmph, gone by 80mph. Definitely worse when going uphill, when they can start at 60 - 65. The dealer replaced the driveshaft -- no change at all. I have a Laredo and I think the wheels are aluminum. Any other ideas? I also like the jeep, but the vibrations are annoying.
