This paper presents a study on the influence of the inertia properties of the vehicles and their subsystems on both the vehicle dynamics and the powertrain vibrational behaviour. Two different mathematical models have been used, one for the entire vehicle and the other for the powertrain. As result of the whole study, an approach for defining the suitable tolerances for the measurement of the inertia properties of the vehicles and their subsystems is proposed in the paper.
