Where's the vibration? Pedals, steering wheel, whole car, front end....

vibration under take off can be a worn cv shaft joint, that only vibrates under weight shift like a launch, you wont feel wheels/tires out of balance until you get up to higher speed. Sometimes a shimmy can be felt if a bushing (control arm) is failed or collapsed (not preloaded if rubber) prematurely. You can look under the car and see if the suspension is at fault, its hard to diagnose without actually driving the car.

ORIGINAL: frankBullitt

whats up everyone,

. the car is under warranty and they have test driven it at the dealership and admit to feeling the problem: however, the technician who works on my car ( and is also a friend of mine) says theres nothing wrong with the suspension, tires, etc.

any suggestions would be appreciated
let me get this right,, they feel the problem and they gave you the car back without fixing it ????WOW times must have changed , when i used to work at a dealership and car was under warranty ,, we left no stones unturned till we fixed the customer complaint , giving customer a rental car ,at times we lost our rear end on a job working on the flat rate system..on some stupid little rattle ,
Like Super suggested , it could be a worn or out of grease INNER cv joint .....have the tech take a close look at them, have him inspect them for looseness and if they feel ok, have him remove the inner cv boot clams and stuff the inner cv boots with grease, put it together and go on a test drive .......
car is undwer warranty DEALER has to fix it to your satisfaction ,,

I'd take a good look at the inboard CV joints on the axle/driveshafts. Then maybe loose suspension bushings or balljoints?

Welcome newbie!

One of my pet peeves is that people don't come back & tell us whether it's fixed, what worked, what didn't, etc. So I understand your last sentence exactly...

Your description makes a lot of sense, but I haven't seen it on MY cars. DesertHonda or HondaDude may share some experience because they operate shops & work on lots of customer cars.
