I had the same on my WG when it was new and it was an out of balance tailshaft. Easy fix just like a wheel balance only different!

Re: Vibration on Acceleration

I have had the vibration between 95km/h and 105km/h for about 3 weeks. It got substantially worse on the weekend just gone whilst driving up the mountains. Ended up with the whole vehicle violently vibrating and shaking above 50km/h. After a tow and overall massive inconvenience the verdict from the dealer is a dodgy tailshaft. Now the wait for approval from Chrysler to repair, then the wait for parts to arrive.

Does anyone find it unusual for a car built in the last few years to have this happen? I expect there to be a few issues with any new vehicle, especially with the level of electronics involved, what I don't expect is mechanical failure so early in the life of the vehicle. 39000km is not a lot of life in my mind and I am very concerned about keeping this vehicle post the expiration of the warranty.

This was my first Jeep and has been a pretty big letdown just quietly. The car is a great design and has great features, but is poorly built (it's the only off-roader I have owned that never makes it to off-road tracks). Jeep need to sort their $hit out as people will only buy another Jeep if they know it will be reliable. What makes things worse for me is the overall poor service from Jeep. Twice I have been stuck on public transport from the broken down vehicle because I am only 90km/h from home (2.5 hours on weekend public transport), then weeks later I have to make my way to a dealer that was convenient for them to tow it to but is 70km from where I live and work. Not my idea of fun.

As for the "Don't hold back" campaign, I'd suggest you "do hold back", otherwise the vehicle will fall apart around you.

Anyone interested in buying a Black 2012 Overland CRD with 39000km and a new tailshaft?
