Are you still using stock tires? I used to have those problems but when i replaced the tires with Yokohoma and got them balanced at the dealer vibration disapeared. Did you hit your wheels? It is very slim chance that you have defective wheels.
Don't go to 3rd party shops to get your balancing done. They use smaller lead weight to cut corners and they are not as precise as dealers. Small weight are contributing the problem and one more thing if you have alloy wheels, wash them with kitchen detergant before you take it to balancing. If the wheel surface is dirty, weight never gets stuck and soon will just drop.

I have a 1998 Ford Taurus SE; worst piece of garbage i have ever owned. Had to replace a/c at 53k miles($1000) and then my entire transmission was thrashed at 63k($2400). what a piece of crap and embarassment. Never again will I ever buy detroit.also have had other things which in deference to the length of posting i kept off. anyone looking for sedan...think Toyota, Honda, not these clowns from ford

Toyota just admitted that their engines have sludge problems.
Honda's V6 transmissions are different story of course.

Let's fold this topic into our ongoing and more popular "Taurus repair and maintenance" discussion" which appears just above this one on the topic list. Please join us in that topic.
I'll leave this one up as "read only" so it can point people to the other Taurus topic.
