All Tranny and motor mount ts replaced. A 2nd replacement motor mount was required. Will sell it before the extended warranty runs out.
2nd set of motor and Tranny mounts in Last 20,000 miles. No wrecks, no racing. Wifendrives the car around town and freeway to work. Never towed anything. Maybe it's a Bluetec problem?
Vibrates while driving it also vibrates while the car is in idle and my foot is on the brake.
