So I was out test-driving an Up yet again to ease the excitement (didn't go as planned, went in the total opposite direction, lol) and I noticed a slight vibration in idle, so that if you have your foot placed on the brake, you get this ticklish feeling throughout the foot.



Will this disappear at some point? Not that its a huge problem.

Probably not as the engine is 3 cylinder and triples are prone to vibration as they are inherently unbalanced. You will get used to it soon enough, I'm lead to believe the up! has one of the smoother engines out there - I know from experience that it's streets ahead of the one in the c1/107/aygo. Enjoy it :)

I did notice it on mine when I got it, but now over 6300 miles if it is there I don't notice it.

I can feel a slight vibration from the engine through my seat on tick over and I don't mind it at all.
When you're driving it's very smooth.

Sometimes its there, other times its totally smooth, think it depends on engine temp etc.

Ok. when you are at idle ...there is a slight "throb" from the engine....due to it being a three cylinder...I like it myself...As you get going all is well , I think then, it becomes a much bigger than a 1 Litre engine by the feel of it. Last night I had to drive home on a motorway, and to be honest ,I was amazed. At 80 mph our little Up was still going for it! illegal I know... but well impressed.

Go well.

I really does not perform badly at motorway speeds but if you are used to driving more powerful cars the lack of immediate power can get frustrating on the motorway.

Just reminds me of first passing my test and having a 1.0L Polo where if you wanted to overtake someone you had to drop back, build up some speed and then overtake.

Well, im used to a car that can only drive 55-60 mph at best.. I think the Up with its max at 100 mph will make me lots of happy on the highway!

Sometimes I notice a very slight vibration as well - when stopped and @ idle, which doesn't happen often due to start/stop.

When you think it's annoying, go sit inside a similar class diesel car for a reality check.
Last time I got in my old diesel, I thought it was going to blow up ... sort of
