Car has vibration when (after it gets warm) accelarating, particularly after slowing down, coasting for a few seconds, and then accelarating again. Car vibrates or shudders for a second then accelerates normally. Transmission has been replaced and rechecked for problem. No error codes found by mechanic. More general vibration can be felt from the rear between 50-65mph. Tires have been balanced but problem persists.

Any suggestions toward soltuion(s) greatly appreciated. 8)

Do you notice any noise coming from the rear at any time? There are several things that can cause a vibration. Most of which would also make some noise. The drive shaft u-joints and center bearing(if your model has a 2 piece driveshaft), the rear wheel bearings, the axle shafts(cv joints), the upper shock mounts, or the shocks themselves. Hope this helps!
