Drive train vibration Dealer can't find it
Hi Folks, Newbie here,
My Bone stock 04 Impreza, auto trans, Wagon, is my daily driver, and is one of the best cars I have owned. Lately I have been feeling a vibration in the drive train when I have a passenger or two, or if I have the car loaded down with tools, golf clubs, stuff. It is fine when it is just me and no luggage. But apears under heavy load or bogging situation.
I took it to the local dealer, I have 1 mo. left on the factory warranty, for them to check it out. Me and two techs piled in my car for a test drive, Yes they did feel the vibration. We went back to the dealership and lifted it on the rack.
The tech checked the CV joints, U-joints, Carrier bearing, mounts, ect. and could not find anything. They sent me on my way $130.00 later with no resolve.
My question, Is it normal to feel the vibration under heavy load? Could it be deeper than exterior components and be inside the trans ? Anyone have this problem in their car?
Any info or feedback is appreciated.
