I have this vibration too! I thought it was DOM's DEF injector protection plate, but I've triple checked it, I can't tell what it is. It doesn't happen during revving when sitting in the driveway, only happens when you are actually moving and its subtle. It's quiet enough to not bother me too much.

I also thought it was coming from DOM's injector shield, but concluded it was not. This drivetrain has a harmonic between 1400-1500 rpm. It is more pronounced when under load. If I intentionally hold it at around 1450 rpm going up a steep grade it really vibrates and makes a racket. I'm going to look at the HVAC through the firewall connections next to see if something is vibrating against the firewall. I'm not real excited about having the dealer try to chase it down.

Re: Almost one year of ownership

Please let us know if you end up discovering the cause of the harmonic.

Re: Almost one year of ownership

I'm 6 months in with 5000kms, very happy so far! Starting to get rough changes in 1 and 2, but no flashes applied yet. Hopefully they will fix that at the next service.

Re: Almost one year of ownership

6 months. 5k miles. No problems. Not one. I've learned a lot about the car, things I should have read up on, but they don't constitute issues.

Very happy happy happy with ownership. I know, I've got a long way to go to meet some of your total mileage, but here's knocking on wood that there are no issues as time goes on as well.

Love this car.

Re: Almost one year of ownership

November 12th will be exactly one year since I took delivery of my Limited ORA II. Nearly 20,000 miles on her now and thanks to Dom's plate no issues.

Re: Almost one year of ownership

After 9 months no major issues, Have DOM's plate. had to locktite it to keep it tight but good now. I had the leaking axle issue, got it fixed right away after noticing.. then when the recall came out, my dealer said the only way he could clear my truck of the recall was to replace them again! so they did under warranty twice! My fasteners came loose on my sway bars (Weird !)and those were fixed under warranty....
Over all very happy with the vehicle. Avg 30 mpg on a 2800 mile trip.Have had all software upgrades and have seen no negative effects.
Bought an extended warranty 6yr/100k for peace of mind as I think I'll keep it for a while....

Re: Almost one year of ownership

1 year ownership of my JGC Ecodiesel in Sweden. 26.000 Kms so far. No issues. A rattle in the sunroof that went away by itself (!). Engine and gearbox is fantastic. Have been paying offroad a little, climbing, waterfording etc. Car is obviously much more capable than I dare use it. Have verified topspeed until limiter several times. Car is very stable at speed and could probably go faster is limiter was off. I'd say a real 220-225 Km/h. Silent car. Plenty of character and charisma. Very happy with the car.
Flaws: They could have done a better job a the feeling / speed in the steering wheel. A/C is not super fast at taking care of mist on side windows. Coming from Mercedes world, I have to mention that the service points are not customer service driven.
