I was going to go to the dealership again and see if they could figure it out, but from what you say they have not clue yet. So Im going to hold off and see what they tell you. Keep us updated so that I have something to go on when I do make it to the dealership.
I was always told that if you felt the vibration in the steering wheel that it was an issue with the front tires/wheels. Vibration in the seat, it's an issue with the rear tires/wheels....

Re: Vibration on 2014 Overland on speeds over 65 mph

Anyone get resolution through the dealer? I have a 2014 GC Limited with Forteras as well. Vibration moderate from 60MPH on up. Dealer confirmed but said they all do that, validated by going for a ride in another with 20" wheels, hemi in that one, mine is a V6. Ran a road force balance on all 4 tires, stated they were all in spec. I really claim BS on all this. A $40K vehicle simply shouldn't shimmy when going down the highway. I asked the dealer if it was missing the left rear door and all the other on the lot were too, would you say that is just way it is? Jeep needs to correct even if it means changing tires to something else. I'm recording a video of the tire shimmy and then giving to the dealer to submit to ChryCo if necessary for correction. I have a 2012 Durango with GY Forteras and 20" wheels as well...that doesn't have a shimmy - smooth as silk.

You are 100% correct. No shake is acceptable. I will have a summit on a highway run tomorrow between 80 and 85, and I will bet it is good because I have driven this one before.

If you have a shake within the speed limit on the highway that is warranty no questions asked. Doesn't matter if they have to throw 4 rims and tires at it, it needs to be fixed.

I don't like the forteras but they shouldn't shake or there is a problem. Two dealers I have been at in the last couple of years have not had the balancers (one road force) calibrated in over 5 years and those things could balance 13" fiesta tires properly so..... not sure what advice to give you other than that they are wrong.

Exactly Willx, just need to demand it be fixed. I received the future input survey from Jeep today - how timely - I'm sure I'll get a call or email after that.

I don't know if you ever read my dealer service statements.... go check out 2014 JGC TOTALLY %#&$& DEAD. ( I am paraphrasing). Walk into that service department knowing that. (Last few posts we talk about service.)

Thanks Willx, I'll reread those. I think I've read almost every post on this forum (good stuff), but probably forgot .

Re: Vibration on 2014 Overland on speeds over 65 mph

i had this problem on a 2008, if the tires are ruled out as a source then it is your driveshaft, demand that they remove and check for balance both the front and rear drive shafts, my 2005 had a harmonic dampener near the transmission to cancel this out, but pretty sure it is now decontented....

if your desperate you can try to confirm by getting an large hose compression clamp and clamping a small wheel weight at different positions on the driveshaft to see if it worsens or improves the vibration, much like you would do to balance a tire or a ceiling fan.....

Sorry it was this Thread Starting to get a little frustrated with the Jeep...my tale of woe

Again, who cares what it is, the service manager is wrong, big SUVs aren't just "this way". Does that guy think that transport trucks shake at highway speeds just becasue they are big? Man people say some stupid stuff. If he were right Ford Excursions would come with tie downs for the passengers so their heads didn't pop off from the "normal" vibrations in big SUVs.

Re: Vibration on 2014 Overland on speeds over 65 mph

Mine went back for the 7th time on Tuesday and is still there. The service department seems totally stumped and doesn't know what to try now. I think they may be waiting on a Star Tech to come in and diagnose it. When I called Chrysler this week my case was assigned to the "Enhanced Customer Satisfaction Team" and I was assigned a case advocate for whatever that's worth. I am not sold on it being a tire issue since the vibration has remained the same through two sets of tires and multiple balances.

When I mentioned tire replacement today to the service manager, it was mentioned they can't fix engineering issues. If there is more to this, it may be suspension related. I have a 2012 Durango with 20 inch wheels and the same tires. The service sept is going to swap to test a theory on vehicle or wheel/tire issue and will escalate to Jeep from there.
