    I just today broke through 300 miles and noticed that around 70-75mph the steering wheel vibrates slightly. Any ideas what this could be?

    Make sure your tire pressure is correct. Alot of us are getting them with @ 50lbs. Maybe that could be causing it?

    Or a wheel weight fell off on a front wheel. That is the speed you would notice that.

    Yep, tire pressure, a bunch of rocks stuck in the tire on one part of it, or the overall wheel balance.

    Wheel balance. Mine did it between 72 and 80mph. Others on the forum have stated the same issue. Have dealer re-balance front tires..under warranty.;)

    Thanks all. I checked the tire pressure and the drivers front is at 50, but the passenger front is at 48. I'll balance them out and see if that does the trick.

    Your tire pressure should be around 32-33
