I have a vibration on the yolk on speed over 75 mph
I have taken my Brand new model X 2022 5 times to the dealer, 4 out of 5 times to Tesla Paramus NJ and after 4 times they completely ignore me because they couldn't solve the problem, they told me they can't take the car over the street speed limit, so they cannot feel anything when they go on the street speed limit, so they say car is good . I went for a road test 4 times, I showed them the vibration, they all saw it and no solution, no answers at all other than Balance, oh and they gave me new tires on the 4th time that I took it for service but the problem still there.
Now I am took the car to another Tesla dealer (Springfield NJ) and I gave them all the history from the car, I asked them to please not balance the car , it is not that. That the tires were balanced 4 times already, and guess what they have done in 7 days that the car has been in there with them?, yes Balanced the car again and that's it.
So I spoke with the manager in charge of my case and he told me THE CAR IS NOT THE PROBLEM, So basically he said that I am the problem!
Please, I need people that have had this problem before, if you had the same problem please let me know, share your experiences with me.
I am wondering how many people are going through the same situation with their cars and with Tesla. How many of you are getting similar answers from Tesla since it is a huge company and they don't seem to care or do anything to fix this.
 
Sorry as that sounds extremely frustrating. Based on what you are saying it sure doesn't sound like the tires or the rims. Only other way I could think of proving the tires was to find someone with a Model X nearby and pay to have the tires swapped, do the test, and then swap the tires back.

Bizzare that they all saw it and assume documented their observation.

Lemon law in NJ? Sometimes that will prod a company.

Four test with a GoPro pointed at the suspension to look for something driving at 75+. Not sure if that is a dumb thought as the road vibration may make the video unusable. I was just thinking of half-shaft or something else seeing wobble in 1 of the 4 test.
 
Sometimes the vibration in the steering wheel comes due to wheels not being properly balanced. Sometimes the balancing weights in the wheel fall off from the wheel which results in the vibration at higher speeds. A tire balance check may solve the issue. At least this is what i experienced earlier in my Mercedes.

Hi @curra2881 ,

I have seen on these forums other cars mentioned for similar problems.
After several failed attempts at balancing the tires -
The solution(s) in their cases were damaged or defective wheels...
Wheels incapable of being balanced were replaced and the situation was resolved.

Sorry I cannot point to the specific thread(s) but it might open the possibility of testing
your car with another tire and rim set...
Where to get the extra set is up to you and your Service Center...

Good luck,

Shawn

i spoke with a lawyer and he told me Tesla is a big company and they have great lawyers, and they haven't change any parts on my car in order to sue them. they only have changed the tires and that is not a enough to sue them, it can't be a wearable part

I would have guessed it was something that was 'repaired' X number of times.

l had the same exact problem when I replaced 2 tires from a reputable tire store. The car would vibrate over 60-70mph. Went back to re-balance- no effect. Went to another tire store to balance the tires again and still no change. Extremely frustrating. A few months later for some reason I took it in get a wheel alignment and the shop stated they would not align it unless I changed the other 2 tires. I told them the tires had a fair amount of thread on them and I thought they were just trying to make some an extra sale. When I went to the shop they showed me the tires. The very inner thread line was done to the steel belt. It would have been very difficult to see this unless I got under the car and specially looked there. The outside thread was fairly normal. After alignment and changing these 2 tires everything was fine.
 
Assuming wheels and tires are balanced, it could be:

1) alignment issue: At higher speed, the toe-in changes due to forces applied.

2) The rotating shaft & disk set are usually checked for balance at factory... but perhaps one is out of whack.

3) if wheel is slightly bent, it will still be balanced on machine, but will wobble on the road.

These are just alternative ideas for your consideration.
 
Coincidently I discovered the same problem on my 2022 X as well with 1500 miles. I did have an unrepairable flat which SC replaced the tire, so I am bringing it back for them to diagnose. Please keep us posted if you ever find a solution to yours.
i can't explain how frustrated i am with the company, i thought Tesla actually was going to take care of his clients. i went last time to the dealer and the mechanic there actually look like he wanted to help me but i am sure Tesla told him no to do anything since this would have taken too much time out of his people. they completely blame on me , the way i drive the car, that i drive the car to hard and i lunch the car several times and thats what is costing the vibration, such a BS
