2012 GC vibration when slow down from highway

Hi,

My 2012 Grand Cherokee Laredo vibrate when I exit from highway merge to the local road. It happened when I slow down to 0 on the ramp, when it stops, no vibration at all.

Took to dealer two times, they check everything, rotor,tranny, computer module,... And they do the test drive, but cannot duplicate the problem.

Any one has the same issue or any ideas?

Thanks!

Don't know, but I have had a car (not the Jeep) where the tires did not like the road surface in a particular area. They vibrated badly whenever I slowed down, but just on that road.

Re: 2012 GC vibration when slow down from highway

Thank you for the reply.

I think it might be the issue--tire and road.

Because in my case, the vibration only happened in particular ramp.

And yesterday I found my tire pressure is 5psi more than recommended, I add that for the winter. So I put out the extra pressure, make the tire pressure to the recommended.

Guess what? today I pass the same ramp and slow down to 0, nothing happened. no vibration at all.

I will keep test it for a while, if it never happen again, then it should be the tire pressure problem.

Will update this thread when I have a conclusion.

Re: 2012 GC vibration when slow down from highway

So what is the verdict? My experience that some tires seem to interact badly while braking heavily on some roads is one I would like to hear if other folks have had it happen.

It never happen again since I set my tire pressure to recommended level.

It should be the tire pressure issue.

Thanks!
