Customer Question

I recently purchased a 2006 SLK350. I notice that I get a slight but noticeable grinding/vibration when I accelerate gently from a dead stop from 800-900 RPM. I get the same grinding/vibration upon deceleration in the same RPM range.

What is the likely cause?
Expert:  Marty replied 2 years ago.
Hi, welcome to Just Answer. My name is***** noise like this is usually going to be caused by collapsed motor mounts or transmission mount or by an exhaust rattle. I'd have the mounts inspected and have the exhaust system inspected. The catalytic converter can break apart internally and cause a grinding type of noise as well. Usually when you get a vibration at a certain rpm range it will be caused by worn mounts or an exhaust system vibration.Let me know if you have any questions.Marty
