Intermittant vibrations can be a tough to troubleshoot. Since this should be under warranty, I would have the dealer's service manager go for a ride with you when the problem is happening. Having to return so many times, I would think he at least owes you that. This vibration may be coming from the transmission. Typically wheel vibration is consistent not intermitant.
