Anyone else with a 2017 envision have a shaking vibration issues when accelerating from a stop? More so when turning left or turning right? This is so annoying and dealership has told me twice it’s normal ????

Did they go for a test drive with you?
Is this the dealer who sold you the car and if so did you complain to the salesperson?
did you ask to speak to the dealership general manager?
if all else fails call Buick customer service.

They did go for a ride with me. They felt it... said it was “normal”... it has been escalated to a senior advisor at Buick and I’m waiting for them to get back to me

Yeah it is common on Premium 2.0T models as other on envisionforum and Envision Facebook page have mentioned it. I am ecu tuning mine with more torque I go right through the vibration mph area quicker now. :)

Mine doesn’t last long at all. It’s just the point .. for what I pay a month on a lease and the price of the car, this should not be happening at all ...

My 2016 Premium does not do this but perhaps it is because I run with 40 PSI in all 4 tires. The car handles much better, absorbs bumps better, and believe it or not rides better! When they get down to 36 I put them back at 40 or a tad higher.

Someone posted on the other Envision forum that Malibu had a TSB for similar sounding vibration and thr cure was loosen the engine or transmission mounts and realign them.

Norm, that was me:

Odd wobbling sensation on right hand turn. - Buick Envision Forum

What an annoying issue. I have not had a chance to get it in yet for it but it sure feels like it's getting worse. I notice at night when it does it, it actually shakes the headlights. Has anyone gotten anywhere with this? Ours just turned over 11K (2016 Premium II). Oddly, mom has a 2013 Verano that has a shimmy at take off but her's is not near as bad and seems to happen when it shifts to second gear. As the OP, ours seems to do it worse turning right. We need to dog Buick about this. I'm taking it in Friday for my last free oil change and I'm going to try to make an appointment for the following week.

NEWS FLASH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Spoke with my good friend who's the service manager at my dealership. There is a TSB on it now. TSB was released on August 6, 2018. The solution right out of the gate is to replace both front half shafts. One of the half shafts is readily available, there's a current shortage of the other shaft. So there may be some delay in service departments getting the parts. I told him to go ahead and order them for mine and whenever they get in I'll come in and have it done. I'll keep everyone posted.. But now there's a TSB number to refer to!

TSB number: 18 – NA – 233

Are you sure about the TSB? I tried to google it and can't find it. My car has been in the shop for TWO WEEKS! That is after a week before. It's in there for this, and also the rear AC out. I just texted my Service Advisor this TSB number. I suspect they probably ordered the same axle that is on there now.

Yes I'm sure. You're not going to be able to Google it yet..... Dealers just got it..... And it's half shafts not Axle.........Way less intrusive type of work

I got a call this morning that both of my half shafts are in. I'll probably get it done next week and will update everyone on whether or not it solves the problem. It would be nice to have a concrete solution to this issue.

They ended up keeping the car until yesterday. Actually worked out well for me because I Had some crap that needed to be moved over the weekend, and I'd rather do that in the loaner vehicle LOL ..........I haven't had a chance to drive it, as they delivered it to my house Yesterday and took back the loaner vehicle . My wife will be driving it today, and I will report back On her comments as to whether the TSB resolved the issue.

I have the Buick Envision 2017 Essence and also have the vibration as well as the rear AC issue. I've brought my car into the service dept. 3 times and they say they can't feel the vibration, but they did fix the rear AC. I'm very frustrated with this car since it's been going on since I bought the car and Buick doesn't seem to want to do anything about it! And to think I traded in my Lexus RX350 for this car, UGH!
