159TI 1.9JTD Judder at speed
I have a noticeable judder on my 159TI when I get over about 70mph (gets worse the faster I go). It's not that pronounced but feels like I'm going over a rough road surface through vibrations in the steering wheel and accelerator pedal.
Having only had the car 4 months, I thought at first that it may just be that I'm not used to the car it but I'm sure it's not right.
I noticed that the inside edge of the offside front wheel was bare when the rest of the tyre was okay (and the nearside front was fine too) so have had both fronts replaced, balanced and the tracking checked/amended by my Alfa dealer. I was convinced that this would solve the problem but it's still doing it.
I will, of course, take it back to the dealer but I thought it would be worth asking on the forum first as, in my experience so far, you guys are more knowledgeable and helpful than both of the Alfa dealers I have tried so far.
Any thoughts and advice much appreciated.
