Is the vibration coming through the steering wheel or through the seat? That is one way to estimate if it's coming from the front or rear of the car. Has it sat for a long time?

I had a similar problem with mine,it turned out to be a bad tire,i had the tires balanced and they all balanced out ok,the second shop i went to the tire tech pointed out a very minor wobble with the tire,replaced the front two and all is well!

:agree: could be someething simple as a tire throwing a weight off so its out of balance, bad tire, front end alignment
or bad joint up front, should check for play all the front end linkage to make sure nothing is loose or worn.
Good luck and let us know how it turns out.

And no unusual noises from the front end? Wheel bearings or steering rack (worn bad pinion gear)?
