Thanks for the input. I'll bring it up with the dealer.

Please all, let's keep each other informed so that we can hopefully find a solution to this.

I got my van back from the dealer!

They told me that the vibrations and humming are gone. So I took the van and drove about 500m. After reaching 55km/h I recognized it was the same like before. Went back to my dealer and made another appointment for further investigations. They really don't have a clue where it comes from.. But I can tell you: It is not the flywheel!

If only I had bought the Mercedes Sprinter :-( I am sure this will take weeks to find out..

Yes glad it is not flywheel - my dealer will also take some time - especially since they only have one real FORD tech, and he happens to be any for a few weeks - go figure....frustrating to say the least

My Transit is doing the exact same thing. Its very obnoxious between 50 and 60 MPH. Took it to my dealer and they told me that its from the tires, they said that they checked the balance of all of the drivelines and that they are all well within spec. I wonder if the "Specs" are too wide, I had a Focus that they wouldn't align because it was within specs even though the tires were very visibly tilted and wore tires like crazy. So I took the Transit home and put the rear in the air and took the tires off the rear. I put it in gear and the same vibration occurred between 50 and 60 MPH. Now to convince Ford that its not tires, they said that they wouldn't do anything until I get new tires. Stall tactic I suppose, or just want me to buy some tires from them since he referred me to the Ford tire department. Let us know if they figure out what it is.

Not the tires for sure - I have put on two set of tires and road force balanced both sets - it did it with both sets - also the vibration is there are all times low or high speed - that would not be the case if tire related. I am waiting for our Ford Tech to get back (3 weeks from now) and then will go back to press this issue further - I just got back from a 500 KM trip and it certainly made the drive less enjoyable.

I had a friend a few years back had a similar problem on a brand new F250 ended up being the drive shaft.

The vibration on mine is noticeable at a variety of speeds. The steering wheel tremor is visible.
