    Intermittent vibration @ 80mph

    Went for a 125 mi round trip today. The car has a vibration on the hwy at 80, but its not always there. Always at 80mph but some time it will vibrate and sometimes its smooth. Didn't notice it on yesterday's ride into the city (100miles round trip).

    Anyone else have this issue. Car has 2100 miles on it

    I was thinking that, but why would it sometimes be perfectly smooth?

    I noticed it on many different stretches of road, as that was my first thought. This is slightly more then just road feeling. I can feel it in the throttle and steering wheel. My passenger could feel it, but not as much.

    Drove the same stretch of road yesterday, no vibrations

    I have the same thing @80 but it's always there. I think it's a flat spot in the tires. I'll know for sure when I put my winters on.

    I put my winters on. No vibrations. I do have bent rims though.

    Took it to the dealer, they rebalanced the wheels and rotated. Didn't go away. No tech will drive over 65mph from what I've been told. Might try another dealer
