I have a Sorento KX2 11 moths old, it has developed a severe vibration which only shows itself when under load in 6th gear, pulling hard upa steep incline.Starts at about 68mph, goes at 75mph or if I back of the throttle and try to cruise. It does not happen when on the flat or when cruising at any speed. Called in to dealers, but they found nothing obviously wrong.


Anyone got any suggestions.

I get a similar thing with my Rio when I accelerate from 60 to 70 in 5th, especially up hill. I also get a lot of vibration through the clutch pedal at around 2500 rpm eversince I went past 21k miles. Main dealer just says "It's a characteristic of the car" which is apretty annoying way of saying "your car is not running properly, but we're not going to do anything about it!"

Mines an auto, but it only does it in 6th gear, if I hold in 5th the vibration does not come in, it's very strange.
