Thanks so much for the input & suggestions.
After having it checked - dealer mechanic says that my drive shaft needs balancing. Interesting is that the same dealer serv center replaced both my front and rear drive shaft u joints 3 months ago and now this problem but they insist it's not related. However, they offered balance the drive shaft without charging for labor - parts only - at $175. I don't know how to verify if this is really the case or if they did a poor u-joint job and that somehow caused the drive shaft to go off balance.
I wonder how much $ I'll be saving on the labor alone vs going to a different shop where they will charge for labor. Would appreciate feedback on the approximate labor costs to remove the drive shaft and balance it - approx how long would something like that take? An hour, or more like 4 or 5? Thanks much!
