2012limited is on a distinguished road
1st time jeep owner!!! vibration/wheel shimmer

Hello ALL,

This is my 1st post on this forum and I was hoping to get some assistance.

I recently purchased my very 1st JEEP (and 1st american car in 12years). I was very excited for the new styling and loved the feel of my 2012 Limited w/ 20inch and HDD upgrades.

UnfortunateLY, after reaching 150miles or so I noticed a vibration under the floor boards. I immediately started my researching on-line and noticed some have had the same issues. I mentioned this to the dealer (Cherry Hill,NJ) and they had me bring it in for a balance. They said 3 were out of balance. It seemed to have improved for a few days but came back.

I have visited GoodYear (I have GY Fortera HL) and Firestone but neither are able to accomodate my wheel size, so I went to PEPBOYS. They also said that I few were out of balance and "fixed" it but still there!!!

I'm a little frustrated to say the least.....any advice would be greatly appreciated!!

Thanks in advance,
Anthony (2012Limited)

My advise is to press your dealer harder. Take service mgr. for a ride.
