Hello,

not long after I have bought this very well suited engine for my Vitara 2015 it started exhibiting some vibrations in the steering wheel. This has started even before I have reached 1 000 km. The vibrations are not only tactile but also visual. I can literally see the steering wheel shaking, and at one time the vibrations caused some plastic underneath to rattle.

The mechanic I took it too connected the Suzuki brand's tester, saw nothing wrong, and declared it normally operating. As for myself, I have driven two older and noisier diesel cars before this one and have had no such symptoms in their steering wheels. Please share some of your experience behind this car's steering wheel.

Thanks!

I have driven a good few, and I have never noticed this issue. I'll look out for it from now on.

It is more when it's hot/cold?

Noticed it happens when the idling rev goes below a certain RPM - around 850 I'd say. Does not matter hot or cold.

I have described this issue in a petition addressed to Suzuki Magyar Corporation. Please take a moment to sign it if you are in the same situation.

Never known or heard of it so a petition is not going to help on a one off case, it sounds like you need to talk with your local dealer to investigate a low tickover that is partially stalling the engine giving a low voltage to the electronic power steering.
If you hold the steering wheel on anything with electronic power steering you will get movement as the electric motor powers up but not a constant movement that you describe on your

I've never experienced this issue, if I did, I'd definitely notice it.

Did you buy the engine separately from the car ?????

I only feel vibrations in the steering wheel when AC is ON.
If AC is off, no noticeable vibrations.

We have 10 petitioners and a standard robot reply from <suzuki@europ-assistance.ro>. The more people sign this the better. So if you have got the problem don't hesitate to sign it. You can also leave a comment with your vehicle model, year / month of production, and anything related.
