Default Need Help with accelerator

Just bought a new Ram 1500 last week and since then, i have been feeling a slight vibration/tickle on my foot as i step on the accelerator pedal. Can feel it all the way from stop as it shifts through all the gears until coasting at same speed but as soon as you step on gas a little you start to feel it. Not the whole truck vibrates just the pedal. Only 1000 Km so far and was just curious if its because of break in period or something to be concerned.

Sorry if someone has covered this problem.

I have the same thing too, been there ever since the test drive. Not sure what it is, but curious to see if anyone has answers.

don't have answers for you, but i m wondering if you are having the torque converter issue that has plagued the 11 models. also have to ask, if it was felt on your test drive, why did you not try a different truck on the lot? either way, with such new trucks it should go back to the dealer as this not normal.

It might be the 4 cylinder mode switching on.

I mentioned it to the salesman during the drive and he didn't recall feeling it. I meant to bring it up again but I forgot during the LOOOONG and TEDIOUS car buying process....

Hate to disapoint, but its something you`ll likely will never get rid of.
Its torsional vibrations coming from the hemi engine during low rpm`s.
Mostly feel it worse during MDS mode. Some have it in the seats an steering wheels too.
You can bolt a bunch of those 2005 hemi exhaust (TSB for 05) ballasts to the exhaust,
it does help alot, but it will NOT totally eliminate it. Its been a known issue since the hemi was introduced. Some have it alot worse than others. I eliminated all my vibes by building a few custom ballasts and fluid crank dampner, no longer have a the MDS vibe issue in my truck.

The torque convertor is a noise issue, not a vibration issue.
The vibe/buzz is caused by torsional vibrations from the hemi engine.
Even the new 2012 trucks have the dreadful MDS vibe/buzz as well at lower rpm`s.
Until dodge/chrysler gets smart and adds large ballasts to these trucks, as well as a
fluid harmonic balancer to the crankshaft, they`ll never eliminate the torsional vibes.
