Check ur tires. Look for bad tread, bad spots or if car sat 4 a Lng time
Tires may b flat spotted. Easiest wld b just tires out of balance. Any service cntr can do this not a lot of $ either. Wors case is ball joints, tie rods and such. If u drive like a cannon @
A dead stop or spin ur tires a lot all the above cld b pssbl.
If not cld b simple balance is all. Chk vibration is n steering wheel
And feel ur back seat 4 same data. If main is n steering tells its mostly front end
"Burn outs" in frt wheel drive cars is really hard on em compaird to rear
Wheel drive. Why sports/muscle cars r rear wheel. Lot more parts on front
End Plus the weight of ur engine.

Hope that hlps u a bit. Either way need to hav to take it to shop :(
