Q: Feels like a speed wobble when the throttle is open

asked by on

I am disappointed to find that my new 2014 Jeep Cherokee with less than 5,000 miles on it has a really sketchy wobble to it whenever I accelerate flat-out. The issue is even worse coming out of a turn and accelerating. Is this common? This is my first SUV. Is this car defective?
