The 3.0 litre Diesel. The vibration is intermitant and can be felt through the sole of my shoe through the accelerator pedal, and only occurs at speeds over 100kmh.

Yep, Sure do.I have the same problem, I was about to post the same. I have a 2003, 4.2 tdi. Started happening at 95,000ks,, now at 117,000ks.. Starts to vibrate at 2100rpm and fades out at 2500.. in all gears, Its driving me crazy,,, errr crazier!!! Nissan says they cant notice it.. The guy who test drove it must have no bone in his right leg.. My vehicle has a cable and so if something vibrating i can understand but the 3.0L does not have a cable... I am going to check if a weight is missing of the tail shaft, other than that it could the clutch plate with a piece missing off it. Michael

Starts about 100ks per hour, The 3 litre has a higher diff ratio so it appears to be in the same rev range.

I have a 2005 GU 3.0l manual, and it very smooth at speed. I have only done about 6000km. I have noticed that when ever I have pulled anything apart to inspect or modify that the bolts are never that tight. I even had the dealer tighten up my back suspension after I could hear a knocking noise.

A question for you, does you windows rattle when they are half open and you are traveling on a dirt road? The glass is not sandwitched very well in the upper half of the door.
