I have a vibration that seems to be coming from the dash area left of the steering wheel. I am unable to determine the exact cause. I am hoping that someone else had this issue and knows the solution. It is most noticeable at lower speeds on rougher surface roads. I appreciate any information anyone has to offer.;)

Sounds like the same noise I've had for a little while now. I am pretty sure mine is the switch on the steering wheel for the bluetooth handsfree. Next time you hear the noise try putting a little pressure on the side of that switch.

I'm curious now to see if maybe someone else had the issue. I'm taking mine in later this month and am going to have the dealer fix it then.

If it's like a buzzing sound, I get it sometimes too from the same region. Seems normal?

Still have not had time to take it to the dealer to get checked out. I will definitely post the fix if I get one.

I also seem to have this issue. Sometimes the vibration stops if I touch the air vent or the shiny black area around the driving mode buttons.

This might sound crazy, but try adjusting the seats, back and forward and tilt back and forth. I had a buzzing in the passenger's area, and I adjusted the seat tilt up a little and it stopped. Was driving me nuts for a couple days.

Update on my vibration. Now that I actually have the time to take it to the dealer the vibration has stopped. I now wonder if it is temperature related, as the warm weather here is definitely over.

Up till today I never had any sound or noises. It was like 40 degrees this morning and I noticed a strange noise also. When it warmed up in the sun in the middle of the day it went away and tonight its 36 degrees and what do you know the noise is back.

It seems to come from the left dash area. Rattle or squeak. Its hard to say its a rat-squeak. Ya that.

Old car audio system tuning trick:

Go to AmpGuts.com and download their free subwoofer test tones. 15hz, 20 hz, 25hz, and so on... They go all the way up to 99hz and on... But the DEEP bass tones that play for 8 seconds, then repeat. Load them on your Ipod or Thumb Drive and play them through your stereo. Good way to find out what frequency (or frequencies) are making or are going to make stuff in your car buzz and rattle; and helps you "chase down buzzes and rattles (you can even get out and walk around the car; poke your head in and out to investigate different areas). You'd be surprised how much this helps. :cool:

I don't believe it's temperature-related... The only times I've heard it is when I'm going against the wind, and it's a strong wind gust. I heard it a bunch on Friday afternoon on the way home... 60 degrees out, going 65 MPH west/northwest, with head-on wind gusts of 25-30+ MPH.

I still can't put a finger on where exactly the sound is coming from... it's definitely in the front part of the car... don't know if it's from around the windshield, behind the dash, or if it might be a door seal.

It's definitely something vibrating though...

Well it definitely is affected by the temperature. We had an unseasonably warm 62 degrees here yesterday and the noise was back. I guess I will be going to the dealer this spring. It is also related to the road surface. The street I live on it is the most noticeable.
