strange feeling through all pedals.
Ok, I have an almost bizzare question and I can't seem to find any posts on it specifically even for other car brands. Maybe I didn't use the right key words. It's one of those things that makes you wonder if it's you or the car that's the issue. Anyways, here it is:
When I am driving my 2007 MS6 I feel some pin and needles (tingling) in my feet and legs sometimes. This doesn't happen when I drive other vehicles including my honda accord. What I did notice is that this feeling seems to go away for the most part when I take my feet off the pedals (when on cruise control for example). I say for the most part because I think that if there is any tingling left, it is probably the residue from when I had my feet touching the pedals.
I've only put about 1300kms (800 miles) on the car. Bought it recently used and it has a total of 61,000km (38000 miles). Everything is stock except for the wheels and tires. I currently have 17" wheels (couldn't tell youthe brand) with winter tires (Nokian hakkapellita).
The funny thing is that my wife who also drives the car, can't feel any pins and needles. So what I did is that I sat in the car without turning the engine on and I can't feel anything either. So it's not my sitting position as a friend suggested to me. I also sat in the passenger side when my wife was driving and can't feel anything there either. It looks like it only happens when the car is moving and when I am touching the pedals. When idling, it is sometimes there and sometimes not.
I know there's been posts about clutch vibrations and things like that but it seems to "affect" all three pedals for me. It almost feels like there is an electric current that is passing through the pedals.
Otherwise, the car drives very smoothly and does not vibrate abnormally as far as I can tell.
Could it be some sort of vibration from the engine being transferred to the pedals (engine mounts, bushings, rear differential, etc...???).
I'll even try a stupid question here: could it be some sort of electric current being transferred to the pedals?
Or maybe I am hyper sensitive to vibrations....
I am not a car expert but there must be a way to at least dampen that feeling I have through the pedals.
Anybody can help me figure this out. It's really weird.
