Default 2009 A4 2.0 steering wheel vibration

Anybody else have this issue? It starts at about 65-70 MPH on my car, not very bad but defintely noticeable.

It could be something as simple as wheel balancing. Your dealer should be able to check this and rebalance if necessary.

Default Can you describe it more for me? I don't think I have it but want to be sure.

Default Perhaps. From reading other posts in the A5 forum new parts for the A5 won't be used until just now

Maybe it was already diagnosed and fixed for the A4.

Also from other posts in the A5 forum the vibration did not reveal itself immediately and a wheel balance hid it for a while before it came back.

Default Thanks. I wonder how bad the vibration is? Different people have different sensitivity.

I could have it too but just not know?

Could be even simpler as a check/adjustment of tire pressure.

Default I get it around 70-80 but not on the steering wheel

the passenger seats vibrates when nobody is sitting in it and so does something in the backseat. Not sure if it's just the road I'm on because that's when I notice it.

Default Re: Same here. Could be it was never a B8 issue or they're now using the new parts on all '09's.

I asked about this being a similar problem to that of the A5 a while ago and everyone thought I was nuts. My 02 has done this since day one, and still does (passenger seat shake, nibble in the wheel). Wheels are balanced, and once by Audi regional rep with an on the car system owned by Audi corporate. Have had a couple sets of EOM Dunlops on it and problem persists. I just chalk it up to some small imbalance in a driveshaft. I have driven other A4's that do not do this. I would be highly disappointed if I bought an 09 and it had the same characteristic. I guess I will really have to drive the car at speed for awhile before I take delivery.

I actually have a pretty nice tire balancer (don't ask why) with Haweka mounting adapters and it shows wheels and tires are true and well balanced. Hunter Road force also shows excellent balance so I gave up on this problem, and so did Audi, a long time ago. My wife even notices the problem.

My 07 GLI is smooth as glass (no AWD).
