Problem 1:
I always noticed my Zed have unstable idling when I come to a complete stop at a light or when my gear is in neutral. I can feel the engine is shaking constantly.

Problem 2:
There's a loud metal grinding noise everytime I back up in reverse slowly.

I'm wondering if anyone experienced these problems. My ride is 04' automatic. Also experiencing tire roar around 40mph or coming to a full stop. I checked my rear tires but they seem fine, I can't tell if it is due to feathering or not.

Can anybody give me some input ?? **** I feel bad now seeing my new car with only 10k miles on it starting to have problems already...

Thanks

The rough idle isn't uncommon, but I guess it all depends on how rough it is. I'd definitely take it into the dealer for that reverse issue, and have them look at the idle while it's there. Better to get it looked at now than to wait and hazard it getting worse.

do you have a plenum installed...?
if yes, its probably a kinetix plenum. the strut bar is grinding over the plenum it self. this is common on stopping, driving hard, or reversing.

if not....
go back to the dealer.
