Dana lowers NVH


Lowering NVH for a smoother ride and drive

Lowering noise, vibration, and harshness (NVH) levels is key to achieving a smoother, quieter ride and drive, and every small variation during manufacturing can affect those levels. But through extensive research, design, and rigorous product testing, Dana has effectively integrated unique technologies throughout many powertrain components to achieve significantly lower NVH levels than competitor products.
