Default Vibration at 2000 rpms

Just bought a 2013 big horn quad copperhead pearlcoat had a 02 ram for ten years then bought a chevy silverado hated it keep it for a year and traded for dodge. Just one question about vibration felt in steering wheel and gas petal at around 2000 rpms and its a lot worse when it's in 4 auto don't feel it at any other time while I'm driving just when it's at around 2000 rpms. Drove two other ones and they did it to. Just wondering if there's something you can do about it or just try and get use to it. Other than that I love this truck.

Does your Eco mode indicator come on when the vibration happens?

I was thinking that was the reason to, but no it never happens when the eco light is on. I notice it the most when I am going up hill and the truck is at 2000 rpms for a longer distance. Around town I feel it but once it shifts to next gear it goes away. And when its in 4 auto the vibration or buzzing feeling is alot worse. I think most people wont even notice it unless your going up hills alot.

Dealership time - dont try and live with it. You need to start documenting this problem just in case they cant find a solution and you need to take it to the next level.

had it at the dealer and they said it was normal, then I drove two more and they did the same thing, the one was actually alot worse. I guess it doesnt matter what you buy all cars and trucks have some type of annoying characteristic, chevy truck had no power, chevy camaro clutch noise, i'm better off with an old 70's truck.

Don't take their word for it - tell them you want to escalate your concerns to the Regional Manager

Dealerships are notorious for being lazy and not really investigating a problem thoroughly.

This is excellent advice. Lot vehicles are prone to vibration just because they sit and the tires flat spot, so it takes 10 miles or so for them to warm up and become round again. Then you have to consider what brand tires you have. IMO the stock tires are shit and they have cause me considerable grief over the years. A drive line vibration may also be to blame.
