    Felt like the wheel was out of balance. Only got bad at mid range speeds during acceleration. Replaced the wheel hubs and the problem persisted until I replaced the CV Axles also. I think it was an out of balance or bent passenger side axle.

    I took my car into to Volvo several times complaining of this rumbling sound and they got tired of my complaining and made up what the problem was "the bushings", I paid for this and I still have the rumbling sound. So yes they lied and took my money once again.
