Vibrating steering wheel

Hi,I have an issue with my steering wheel on my Fiat 500l Trekking 1.4-almost from the begining.It is vibrating while parking (turning left-right,wether I am going front or backing up).I asked the dealer to look it up because it doesn't feel normal to me (I didn't have that issue on my Fiat Stilo) and they said that diagnostics didn't show any error and that it is normal.Does any one else have the same problem?I talked to some Fiat 500l owners here in Serbia and some have and some don't have the same issue.If it was normal then all would have the same feeling,right?

It's not normal for any car to do this. Your dealer is trying to fob you off......

Re: Vibrating steering wheel

My assumption also...We are taking car to the dealers on wednesday since we started hearing some noise from the steering wheel last week,and we will bring that vibrating issue again.I recorded the sound..

Keep us posted as that is more of a knocking sound, rather a vibrating sound. They could be related though....

Re: Vibrating steering wheel

I will keep you posted.Vibrations are feeling at the end of the turn of the steering wheel while moving at very low speeds(parking) and these knocking sounds are present at every start of the turn.We'll see what the dealer finds.

Re: Vibrating steering wheel

Many thanks for the update, It's appreciated when people come back and let us know an outcome as it can help other members if they encounter the same issues.

Re: Vibrating steering wheel

Mi idea also!I think that is the reason why forums exist-to give advice and to share problems and solutions....
