Vibration problem from day one with car. took back
Vibration problems from day one with this car. this was a new car with 9-13 thousand miles. i took the car back the second week and asked for a balance/alignment check. the wheels were balanced but the same front end problem when speed reached 50-60 miles per hour. took the car back a few months later and tech checked the tires. he didn't report any problems. by 24,000 mi, the vibration was worse at 50-60 mph. for the third time i took the car back and when it was returned,from take off the ride was worse than it had ever been. it was like the people had changed tires on the front or done something entirely different. on reading the report i saw that they recommended new tires ,and they said that the vibration problem was due to worn tires due to me not rotating the tires. they advised me to get new tires which i did and problem is still there. i paid over 700.00 for job and i still have the have the same problem. there is something still wrong with the front end of this vehicle, not enough to move the needle on the rotation panel, but enough to let me know that the original problem is alive and well.

Re: vibration problem from day one with car. took back
I think what you need is a good lawyer, and make this people pay you all your money back and change the car . did you get a carfax I would recommend to get one , this car maybe was in an accident , and they for sure at the dealer won't tell you..have the car check in a different place . I would recommend a body shop because they will for sure find any type of problem like this one..good luck..www.carfax.com

exhaust resonance is unlikely
vibration is caused by something spinning that is out of balance
it can also be from a misfire or a mechanical problem
considering the mechanical problems
harmonic balancer - replaced delete reference unless loose bolt
loose clutch pressure plate --no information as to auto or manual--possible
cracked flex plate--no information as to auto or manual ---possible
failing cam shaft lobes --cam nobes wearing off causing valve timing problems --very possible
faulty hydraulic lifters --pumping up and holding a valve off the seat -possible
hydraulic follower failure --excessive valve clearance altering valve timing --very possible
ignition timing too far advanced -- tune up should have checked that but is a possibility
failed water pump bearings --noisy but a possibility
viscous fan hub ( if not electric fans )-- a distinct possibility--bearing failure and fan running off center-off balance
injectors --- any injector squirting but not the same amount as the others will cause a harmonic unbalance --possible
except for the cam shaft as mentioned , the engine has done 30.000 miles so any fault in the rebuild would be shown up before that mileage was done
drive line problems ---unlikely as you state it vibrates when stationary and that confines it back to the engine and transmission
only parts spinning are the engine parts and the input shafts , torque converter or clutch
IF your ****** was removed and re-installed there is a good possibility that there is a problem withe torque convertor. either it is not installed or seated properly or the weight block welded to it may have come off. Also your flex plate ( the part that your torque convertor mounts to) may be warped or bent during re-installation Hope these ideas help you out..
That is known as "the death wobble" for very obvious reasons. You need to install steering dampeners . They look like shocks and they mount between the drag link and the frame. They will cure the problem. Don't delay putting them on your Jeep. Hope this helps.
Sounds like you may have a misfire or a voltage dropping out from the computer maybe the garage should try a new one to be sure.As far as the brakes this is something new to me,my friend has over 75,000 miles on his 07 H3 and still has orginal brakes on.
yes i would change the plug wires , you can take a spray bottal with water and spray that wire, and if it starts to run real bad then it is shorting out, you may also have a injector going bad you can test this buy puting a ohms meter on it and ck the ohms it should read the same or close to the same as the other if not it will need replaced
Chatter is caused by brake pad vibration, they make a paste that you put on the back of the brake pads to reduce it or make it go away, another thing that causes it is the rotors were no finished properly when they were turned, another issue is poor quality brake pads, I have always used Wagner or Raybestos brand they are the best and have anti squeak/chatter materials in the pad material.
