confused Unexplainable vibrations on MONDEO 2.5 L

Hello, I need a help

sorry, I'm a very satisfied user of a Ford Mondeo 2.5 L with automatic gear, now I traveled 224.000 Km, and until more or less, month ago, (I can not find out any connection with a particularly relevant event) the car starts to vibrate.
The vibrations are really unconfortable to feel on steer, they are variable case to case, sometimes starts at 60 Km/h, some time they are smoothing at 100 Km/h then restart stronger than before.
Here some relevant effects:
-when I steer right the phenomenon is increasing
-when the car is charged more in the terms of weight the phenomenon is increasing
-the phenomenon is present only if I accelerate, when I stop acceleration go to disappear, when I brake is not present
-the performances of the engine are still the same

Many thanks in advance,

Svetozar Jovanovic

Re: Unexplainable vibrations on MONDEO 2.5 L

unbalanced wheels can vibrate, when was the last time the car had a wheel alignment or had the wheel balanced??? might be a good thing to head to your local tyre dealer to get it done.

take the car and jack up the two front tires and try to move them up and down. if there is evan a little play then have the front bearings checked.

Vibration on acceleration with front-wheel drive is usually indicative of the inner CV joints worn.
