Strange vibrations

Hello,

I picked up a 2000 9-5 Aero Wagon about a week ago and love it so far. It has a vibration similar to wheel being out of balance or flat spotted that is only noticeable between 65-75 mph. Any ideas on what it could be or how/what I can check?

Love this forum so far, we're planning on picking a 9-3 Convertible for my wife this weekend

I would start with having your tires/rims balanced. You may have a bend in one or more rims. If it only happens during acceleration the it could be a worn inner driver/axle.

You also should check your mounting brackets.
