2014 SRT mid RPM harshness and vibration
 
Has anyone noticed a harshness while accelerating moderately (spirited but not past 60%+ throttle) around 2nd and/or 3rd gear 2200-3200 RPM? I'm assuming it may be the same culprit that is making the whistling noise. Its rough enough that passengers this morning said, "why does you car have so much vibration and we aren't even going that fast!?" It's bothersome and it does not seems liek an exhaust sound. Its not really a sound at all, but a vibration felt through the seats/dash, ect.

It goes away once cruising and does not show up if I rev it in neutral. Only under load.

im guessing its the engine block rubbers

one is missing or broken, that allows the engine to stress out causing vibration.

take it to the agency.

Im going to beat a dead horse and ask again now that more people have taken delivery of their 14's... Am I still the only one who feels a vibration between 2000-3000 rpm under light to moderate acceleration? Its driving me crazy and I wanted to wait to bring it to the dealer until my first oil change at 1000 miles.

Reply or pm me if you notice any harshness in that rpm range on yours! Thanks guys!

Sorry man. I haven't experienced anything like that either. I did have a very annoying rattle in my steering column that I finally got fixed yesterday. Other than that, mines been solid.

Unfortunately no... I am bringing it into service late next week for the whistling sound i reported last month. Turns out SRT found a group of CV joints were machines improperly and are sending them out to my local dealer to have them swapped. When it is in for that i will get the vibration looked at. It still drives me crazy... I road on another 14, smooth as butter. :confused:

Dosen't sound like an engine mount, sounds more like a tranny issue.

Just took delivery on '14 SRT, September build, and experiencing the same vibration at light throttle around 2500rpm. It's hard to describe but you can feel the vibration in the steering wheel as it passes that 2,500-2,700 rpm range. Not good.

Has anyone had any luck in identifying the issue?
