Default Vibration of Accelerator and Steering

I feel vibrations in accelerator and steering in my Getz once the rpm crosses 2000 rpm. What could be the reason?

I have done wheel balacing, rotation and allignment of the wheels. So I think wheels are not the culprit.

The vehicle is 11 months old and has just done 7500 kms. All the services were done on time.

Does it happen when you accelerate or when you brake?

It happens only while accelerating.

Its not bad, but annoying at high speeds.

The only modification I have done is K&N stock replacement filter.

Default Vibrations In Getz

Hi, i feel it could be either from worn or faulty engine mounts, and in some cases it has been observed that the belt tension is allso a cause for this, just try getting it loose a little.

Thats a good point Alankar. Thanks
I remember the technician applying some grease on the belt when there was squeaking noise from the belt of my Santro.
