Anyone have any experience with this car having excessive vibration at 70 MPH. Mydealer has tried twice to fix it but no luck.

thanks

Sounds lika a balance issue, have the wheels been checked?

Wheels have been balanced twice with no improvement. Service advisors last comment was, ride is due to low profile tires and suspension of car. In other words, there's nothing we can do about it.
i'm going to hold their feet to the fire because a $40k car should ride pretty darn solid.

Low profile tires shouldn't give any problems. The Hirsch version does even have 8x18" with low profile tires as standard and I know people that have had 20" wheels on and I have never heard about this problem.

The problem is likely inbalace in the wheels/tires or brake disks

A little vibration is pretty normal in cars with larger engines in combination with front-wheel drive. However, I have never experienced this in my 2004 9-5 Estate. Try to perhaps buy some 16' instead and see if that helps?

However, I agree with SaabJohan: Hirsch has standard 18's and there is no known problems with those.
