Incline vibration or shudder
I've had this vibration/shudder for sometime now, i only seem to feel it when there is a incline. I changed the modes(sport and tow) and still feel the vibration from the passenger and driver seat. Reading on this forum could it be the rear drive shaft that needs to be balanced or do i need it to be replaced or have ESC flashed?

I know its not my tires or wheels, I've had them replaced and balanced by third party. Its not consistent vibration, only when going up incline when we feel the shudder/vibration on the highway.

2013 limited v8....11k miles

I appreciate any suggestion or fix you might have for this issue.

At what road speed?

Do you know which gear were u in? Maybe it is not downshifting to a lower gear and might be a bit of load for the engine at the current gear you were in. Next time, you are on the road, try manually downshifting and see if it goes away.

Neck121138 - I feel the vibration on the highway speeds from 55-80 mph.

Aiyer- I've not tried to switching the suv to smaller gear but I'll try this. If this is the case? what could be the fix for it? Could ESC flash that i'm reading online help with this situation.

I've had this vibration from day one I got this SUV. I've had bad experience dealing with dealership about the goodyear tires so I've been honestly trying to avoid dealing with them. I just don't want this issue to cause more problems for my vehicle at this point which is why I'm trying this form for some suggestions.

Reading the forums I'm not the only one with this issue, some dealerships try to fix the problem(no solution has been presented on the forums) and some dealerships just said its normal and go away...

Thanks for the comments/suggestions regarding this problem I'm experiencing.
