    Hi,

    I have a 2006 170 TDI S Line. Took it on the motorway
    today and noticed a slight vibration when going 70 - 80.
    it wasn't coming through the steering wheel and wasn't pulling to the side.
    Is this normal?

    Thanks

    It seems to be coming from the front. Can't say what side. Can feel it through the pedals a bit and the seat

    Could be anything, engine/box mounts, bearings, worn bushes on components, maybe its a wheel/tyre.

    Missus cmax used to vibrate loads, didnt pull to one side either, was a buckled wheel & worn tyres lol.

    Ideally need to test another car to see if you're mistaking normal functionality, but they dont tend to vibrate allot tbh unless somethings of.
