I am new to this forum and hoping someone may be able to help with my Fusion Hybrid issues. I have had a vibration in my 2012 Fusion Hybrid for the past year. We cannot figure out what is the cause. I would appreciate any suggestions or feedback. Luckily, I have a good friend that is the GM of a Chevy Dealership so a lot of the exploration of the issue was done at no cost. We are at a point now where they are out of ideas. I am going to take it to Ford but figured out what it may be. So far we have done the following things. Each time we did something below, the vibration got better and was eliminated at certain speeds. Now the vibration starts around 35. It is at its worst around 45 – 55. It feels like it is coming from the rear as I feel the vibration more in the seats and not in the steering wheel. I am giving this car to my daughter in a few months and I want to figure this out before I give it to her as it is annoying and I want to make sure it is safe for her to drive.
Balanced tires (Several times)
Road Force Balanced tires
Replaced 2 rims – one was severely bent, the other was barely bent
Cheeked suspension and cv/ball joints
Replaced tires and wheels with another set from a same year, similar model Fusion (not hybrid) – vibration remained
