    I hope that fixes it! That is crazy. Just had my 08 aligned and balanced, still rides smooth as ice on the interstate.

    Update:

    The dealer had my car while I was on vacation. They replaced all 4 tires and replaced the drive shaft propeller.

    So far, so good. Hopefully the issue has been corrected.

    My dealer has been extremely helpful during the process.

    Propeller shaft = drive shaft. An unbalanced drive shaft can be a hard-to-find source of vibration. If they did tires and drive shaft, then they didn't know where the problem was and just did everything.

    Vibration is back, so the drive shaft nor the tires are the culprit. Waiting for further diagnosis. Not feeling very confident at this point.

    did they look at the engine mounts ? sometimes they go bad or get loose and the engine will vibrate the car at highway speeds.....

    Not sure if they checked those. The problem is the vibration is intermittent. Doesn't happen all the time, and it's sometimes worse than other times. It's very frustrating.

    It feels like it's originating from the rear. I believe the next step might be to replace the rear diff to see if it's the cause.

    They replaced the drive shaft because they road tested the car with it taken out and it seemed to disappear. Logical thought process, but after a couple days, the vibration returned.

    This is the weirdest thing I've ever encountered with a vehicle.
