None whatsoever... The steering wheel is solid as a rock at all speeds from a crawl to 80 mph. That's what most impressed me about the Grand Cherokee vs. the others we test drove, a Ford Explorer Limited and a Volkswagen Touareg Exec. The Jeep was the best driving most solid vehicle of the three.

This is a GY Fortera problem likely. Search the forums. Either people have good luck with them or they don't. Report it to your dealer and get it fixed, likely a balancing issue from changes in settling or possibly a bad tire.

Svenska,

I think a Mod moved this here...? it was in another thread because my comment was not posted in WK. Hmmm, might be in error.
