A vibration or shutter may be noted on acceleration. If the transmission torque converter is suspected a revised part is available to correct this concern.

Steering wheel not only vibrates at high speeds (65-75mph), car shutters when turning at slower speeds and when accelerating (5-20mph). Brand new 2011 Outback shouldn't have problems with steering!!!

From stop, slightly faster than average acceleration, vibration occurs around 15-20 mph then subsides until even fainter vibration around 75 mph

I noticed a shudder or vibration at about 20 MPH. Just recently developed.
More noticeable going up hill or faster acceleration, so when there is more of a load.

My 2006 Subaru L.L.Bean Outback has a similar problem with a shaking occurring between 15-20mph. I've had both front axles replaced and that lessened the "wobble" slightly but it's still quite noticeable. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
