problem details
2008 Volvo C70 - 2.5L 5 Cylinder Turbo 104,000 mi,
There is a vibration throughout the car as though there is a bad back tire starting quite noticably at around 35 to 40 mph and continues to up to around 70 mph. If I stop accelerating at any point or speed, it stops immediately. There is no engine light and there is no vibration if the accelerator is not engaged. The tires have been checked and they are new. So, vibrations only when acclerator is employed; stops as soon as it is released.
