Excessive engine vibration when idle

I just picked up my car on friday night only has 300 miles. Im not ruling out a bad gas problem but ny engine vibrates really hard. Do I need to break it in (first 1000-1500)because it only happened last night didnt notice it this morning on my way to work.

If it was that bad and you're concerned, take it back to the dealer. Be warned though, they need to replicate it to fix it.

Hi cornettbr,

As dragonpalm has suggested, if you're really concerned you should head over to your dealership so they can take a look. I can get your case escalated as well; just send me a PM with your VIN, dealer, current mileage, daytime phone number, and full name.

Drive with better gas and wait a few thousand miles for the break in period to be over.

If you bring it back to the dealer that is exactly what they are going to say to you.

You're welcome.
