HEMI vibration at 2,000rpms/steering issue
 
I have 1,900 miles on my 2010 JGC with the 5.7 and QT2. It has been in the 90s all week and i noticed a slight vibration in idle and in drive at 2000-3500rpms. I also noticed when i pull into a driveway or out i hear a creak in the front. It is even noticible over speed bumps but it doesnt do it all the time. Also when i have the wheel turned all the way when in reverse or pulling into a spot it feels like the front wheels are locking up and i feel the vibration in the steering wheel. This too happens intermitently. I know if i bring it to the dealer they will "find nothing wrong" but my 07 jeep with QT2 never did this. What could it be?

with that low mileage take it to them and tell em ur not happy with it ... and stay in the car and fabricate it while the tech is in it with you ... that low mileage you should not have any problems at all

check out www.wkjeeps.com for a TSB that might cause that

The vibration could be a number of things.. you said it was hot out, it could be the A/C. As far as feeling it when in drive, I would need some more detail.. if you take it to the dealer, "replicate" the problem with a tech before you leave it with the dealership!

The creak you hear is your front sway bar bushings.. have them greased or preferably replaced under warranty.

The WK has a really good turning radius.. avoid locking the steering wheel to add stress to the power steering system.
