Default 2007 Amanti vibration

Anyone experience a road shudder/vibration/tremor in a 07 Amanti or newer that just won't go away now matter what is done to the car?
I have had wheels road force balanced 3 times, new wheels, tires, wheel hubs and rotors replaced. Kia even put on 4 new Michelin tires and removed the Kumhos'. All of this has taken place over a 5 month period and my Amanti still has fewer than 9,000 miles on it at this point.

I have been to 3 different Kia dealerships, had the District Factory Svc Rep. on the case and another skilled factory tech, all to no avail.

I am told that the differential was factory engineered and improved to lock without slip so as to improve on fuel economy and that this might cause it and therefore the vibration cannot be resolved. I still get bounce/shudder particularly around 40-45MPH. Higher speed improves it somewhat but it is ever-present.

Has anyone had or currently have this problem?
