Default Strange vibration in vehicle body

I have something weird going on. When I accelerate I have a vibration into the body of the vehicle at 20MPH. I can feel it in the foot rest on the driver side. After 20-25MPH the vibration disappears. When I switch to manual mode I get the same vibration at the same speed whether accelerating in 2nd or 3rd. Do you think this is a transmission issue or more likely a bad torque strut or motor mount?

none of that applies. It does not vibrate through the steering wheel. If it was a tires issues I would assume it would vibrate at higher speeds which this does not.

Your assumptions are wrong. If you rule out tires / wheels without testing for them, you could chase this issue for a while.


I will add if your half shafts are in bad shape, they will vibrate when accelerating in that range. If you are 4wd, could be driveline or rear diff related

I checked the half shafts and they appear solid. From what I had read, it seems the torque strut appears to fail on these vehicles. I have the FWD version. This vehicle also just had the front control arms with ball joints replaced and the end links per recall. I just bought the vehicle a while back so I'm not sure when this vibration started. I didn't really notice it on the test drive but I was too occupied talking to the owner.

Take it to a shop and have them inspect it.
