Steering Wheel Vibration - when idling @ STOP

How much vibration do you feel on your '18 TLX steering wheel when you are stopped at a stop light? My steering wheel feels buzzy since new. I was a bit surprised feeling the buzz on a premium level car.

You have a L4 or a V6? It could be engine mounts.

According to Acura, it is normal for the 4cyl to vibrate at idle and they won't do anything about it. I have a 16' 4cyl, and they said that's how the car should be.

Same boat as you with a '15 TLX 4 Cyl. Seats vibrate as well. Completely unacceptable for a "luxury" car, yet normal according to Acura.

I have a 16 TLX 2.4 Tech and don't have any noticeable vibration at idle or otherwise, steering wheel or seats.

Lucky you. I pointed this out that some has that vibration, some don't. Dealership and hq said it is normal.

OP, go get your check out. Maybe your dealership willing to do something about it. Hopefully they find something.

I'll wait and see how it is after "break in" period. I was just comparing with my Hyundai Sonata which doesn't have noticable vibration like this.
