Yes, I am guessing it is more of resonance. I feel the the gas pedal is vibrating when the engine is at a certain RPM range (1000-2000). My wife said she felt it on the passenger side too. I am not going to take it to the dealer. I am pretty sure they will check it and say everything is OK. It's not a big problem. Just doesn't give me the perfect "new car" feeling...Marginjoey wrote:At 1600 RPMS, anything is possible... resonance from cabin, tranny noise, meteors falling onto the roof rack. Radio isnt loud enough yet..
Take it to the dealer if it's a genuine concern, or better yet, drive another one, go for a test drive at another dealer or something... that always works...
After more driving, I find it shakes on a wide range of RPM 1000- 2200 on different gears. the interesting thing is that when I switch to the "Manual" mode and use "4", the shaking is gone.Marginjoey wrote:Gotcha.
Low rpms will do that though, do what I do....
FLOOR IT !

I have something similar in my v8 but it's not really a bump, it's more of an rpm fluctuation around 1200 rpms.
May mention this to your dealer as well.
IF YOU CONFIRM: A short-lasting (less than 1 second) bump/thump is felt: With light throttle application (slight throttle tip-in, less than 2/8), while driving on a flat or slightly inclined road, with the transmission in fith gear and torque converter at full lockup, with an engine speed of approximately 1100-1300 RPM, and at speeds of 35-45 MPH. ACTIONS: Confirm this bulletin applies. Check and compare your Current ECM Part Number to Table A on page 3. If that part number does not match one in Table A, this bulletin does not apply. Go back to ASIST for further diagnostic and repair information. If this bulletin applies, reprogram the ECM.
