Default Peddle and steering wheel vibration

Hello everyone, new to the forum, and first shout out to everyone. I've had my new 1500 SXT for a week now, and love it. Right off the lot there has been a vibration in the steering wheel and gas peddle around 40-60 km. It doesn't feel like a wheel out of balance, more like a bearing but everything feels tight. I have scoured threads about this and found one about the torque converter.http://www.**************/forums/sho...d.php?t=345760 I don't have a moan or drone as the thread reads. Has anyone else had this problem with their new Ram? I took it to the dealership and the tech said it could be a needle in a haystack. Even took another new truck out and same problem.

It's the mds. Mine has it also, and at the speeds you listed its more noticeable. Drive it in manual 6 or 5 (deactivates mds) and you should see it mostly go away. I think I have grown more tolerable of it in the 11 months I've had my sport.

Well there goes my theory. It's still there on my truck when running on 8 cylinders, it feels cheap to me, but I think it either gets better as the truck breaks in or I grow more immune to it.

Thanks for the input. My dealership says they are going to call "tech" and see if there are any more complaints about this. Really sucks, as this kinda takes the fun out of having a new truck. Looks like I'm gonna have to break out the wrenches and look myself. Already found a rubbing noise that the dealership couldn't find. It was a wiring harness that was rubbing against a mount under the hood.

So this is something that we have to live with? If so, bummer.

My truck shakes/vibrates when Im on the highway and i only have the drivers window open and the rest closed. Everyone else get this too? Maybe this is your issue or does ur truck shake with windows closed. Dont recall this happening in my old reg cab.
