Hi, I recently got a 2018 Yaris iA sedan from Hertz, automatic transmission, 13,000 miles on it and passed a 100-point inspection. Everything great except from the start I’ve noticed a lot of vibration, occurring in two different situations, though perhaps they’re related.
First, the steering wheel vibrates uncomfortably at higher speeds, most particularly at 70-75mph.
Second, both the gas and brake pedals vibrate at higher RPM, which makes longer drives uncomfortable because I can feel it in my foot and ankle. And this doesn’t have anything to do with actually depressing the pedal, since even if I just hover my foot over the brake or gas pedal I feel it vibrating. Particularly on the highway since the higher the RPM, the more the vibration.
I’m hoping the steering wheel issue can be fixed by getting my wheels balanced (or getting them aligned sometimes fixes such an issue as well right?). But as for the pedals, I’m wondering if that’s just how the car is. Similar but less dramatic vibration can sometimes be felt when first starting the engine in the morning. Or on occasion when idling.
Anyone have a similar experience with a similar car? What should I get looked at first? Thanks
