Unhappy Gas and Brake Pedals vibrate on Elantra 2017

Hi everyone

I'm having issue with my Hyundai Elantra 2017. This issues is there quite some times now. Since I just joined this forum, I would like you to give me some comments

My issues is: When I accelerate my car or when I apply the break, I can feel that the pedal is vibrating a bit under my feet. Yeah, i know it's a bit but it's really stopping me from enjoying the car. It's not happening all the time, but I would say 80%. I have driven different cars before but none of them have this issues. And if you ask me to bring it to dealer to check. I did, and they did the test drive as well. At the end, they told me the vibration is the same as other hyundai elantra 2017 vehicle, so it's normal. I really don't know what to do from here now. Do you have the same issue as me?

Thanks

It is not normal and don't take the service adviser's word on it.
Get them to fix it or replace the car.

Sorry, not in a good mood.
My car has a evap code and I still haven't found the problem
Will need better equipment ... slide your thumb against forefinger and middle together and you know what I mean

Welcome to the forum. That doesn't sound normal but maybe it's just different from your previous vehicle. Have you asked the dealer if you can test drive another 2017 to compare?

Thought about it and it sounds like suspension problem
That is what is likely to cause a vibration problem while accelerating and/or braking
Weak ball joint or control arm bushing??
Check the tie rods??

I haven't test drive another 2017, but I'm pretty sure the vibration is there. The vibration is also present when I just lightly touch the pedal (without applying force) when I am driving on the highway. I will bring it back to dealer again to check.

Will find out when I bring the car back to the dealer so they can check.

@Thedarkside - Welcome to the forum!

Sorry to hear you're having issues with your new car. How hard of braking are you doing? Does it vibrate under normal braking and not hard braking? Or vice versa?

Thank you

Not hard at all. Yes, it does vibrate under normal braking and hard braking. Also, when I'm driving on highway/freeway, if I lightly touch the pedal (gas/break), I can also feel the vibration. The weird thing is it doesn't happen all the time, maybe like 80% only

How are your rotors? When I had brake pedal pulsation rotors were the problem. I needed a shim on my hub and index them to correct the run out. But that was on a Saturn with higher mileage. At slow speed I could hear the brake pad hit the high spot on the rotors. New rotors pulsed at 3,000 miles before the shim.

Hyundai does recommend indexing rotors. Maybe things are out of spec.

Truth alone triumphs, not untruth.

The article explains brake pedal pulsating.
