I still haven't found a fix and my dealer is now blaming it on my borla exhaust even though it was present when stock. I assume they don't want to R&D when they can point a blind finger...

I really want to find the solution so if u get any answers please post here!

Good luck man. Other than that it's a killer truck!

Question Re: 2014 SRT mid RPM harshness and vibration

Hi, I've picked up my 2014 SRT8 a few weeks ago and noticed the same vibration occuring under moderate load and it occurs predictably at 2500 - 3000rpm. I had it back to the dealer, but they say they can't detect it. Its definitely there which led me to finding this thread.

Has anyone had this diagnosed and fixed?

My car is 2016 with 150 miles and at very low revs feels Like I'm running over some ripples in the road or lane markers but nothing is there ??

Re: 2014 SRT mid RPM harshness and vibration

I now believe after reading a lot that it's the cylinder deactivation shutting down 4 cylinders. It always occurs on a very light throttle and many stories seem to point to this as the main cause ... I hope they are correct ��

Ya thats the MDS, slight vibration in the wheel and the exhaust note changes

My first full tank in sport mode got 13.1mpg around town. Next tank I did Auto mode with eco on and I got 14.7

Re: 2014 SRT mid RPM harshness and vibration

Thanks for the feedback ... I'm going to find out if I can get it permanently deactivated . It's about as silly as those ridiculous engine shut down systems when your stopped at the lights etc
