When I put a full lock and make a U turn, with my 2016 GLE, there is a grind/shudder feeling from the front wheels, almost like a wheel is loose. The garage said it is just the wheels and tyres, no cause for concern.
I have never experienced anything like this in 50 years of driving.
Any other owners experience this ?

Well documented on the GLC and some other models like the new E63S, crabbing at lock. Google it and you’ll see the issue ( first time with the GLE though)
Mercedes seem to be ‘solving’ it by using all weather or winter tyres

Thanks John, it is a bit concerning. I will Google it and ask another owner when I see one.
Thanks again.

No problem - it is a very fine car in every other respect! Some pics would be nice :)

I have noticed this on my new W205. I have 19" C43 wheels on mine and its horrendous on lock. Steering wheel is off centre too. So much for a car with 35 miles on it and a dealer PDI.

Its going on my hunter machine next week and I'm going to look at the castor swing angle.

My better half has had two brand new GLE's(works for Merc) and both of them have done it.
