Is this vibration normal?

    Hi all,

    Just took delivery of a P90D and besides a creeking falcon wing door when opening, the car is perfect. Although, when I drive above 40mph, there is a very abnoxious and obvious vibration that lasts about 2 seconds and happens quite often. I think I counted 6 times in a span of 40 seconds. I attached a short clip of the noise which happens around the 4-5 second mark.

    Does anyone know what this is? Service has to pick it up next Tuesday for both the door and the noise :(

    Try and stay in the lane and that sound will go away. You are experiencing the driver assistance feature that emulates the sound of driving on a rumble strip along freeways. I believe it's called lane keeping assistance. You can turn it off in Settings -> Driver Assistance section.

    Congrats on the new ride! Enjoy!

    Wow do I feel like an idiot! I never knew that, and I guess Tesla didn't ether! Still needs falcon wing door creek fix, but that's a cool feature now that I know there is nothing wrong! Phew!

    And thank you this car impresses me every second (and everyone else I pass by!)

    I believe @paintpolisher recently described the exact concern on his 90D at those speeds.

    The creak and/or popping will probably be fixed with lubrication if it's the same I have. However, it will come back. From what I understand they are revising some trim to remedy it.
